Westbury, NY (Wednesday, July 31, 2013) – Electro Industries/GaugeTech (EIG) announces the release of the ANT18769, a remote, mounted wireless (WiFi) antenna to extend the range of its Shark 100S/Shark 200S submeters with WiFi, and its MP200 high-density multi-circuit metering system with the WiFi option. The WiFi antenna has a magnetic base for easy installation and comes with a 2000mm coaxial cable for remote connection.

The remote antenna’s benefits to the WiFi power meters include:

  • Mounting for better line of site reception.
  • Ability to mount the WiFi power meters in an enclosure but still take advantage of radio based communication.
  • Being able to place the antenna in an optimal location, e.g., near a window in the case of a power meter installed in a basement.

The remote antenna further enhances the capabilities of the EIG power meters with WiFi communication.
