JW014A Omni Antenna - does smaller equals weaker?

Hello!

 

I'm interested in the JW014A antenna for a warehouse deployment with AP318 or 228.
The ceiling heigh is about 10 meters or 32,81 feet.
The WiFi will be used for zebra scanners.

 

Does anybody has productive experience with the JW014A antenna?
Is it useable at 32 feet ceiling heigh?
Can it keep up with JW001A or JW003A?

 

Thank you for sharing your experiences!

 

 

 

Best regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Re: JW014A Omni Antenna - does smaller equals weaker?

While generally speaking, smaller antennnas do equal lower gain. That said you can see in the data sheet for that antnena that the gain is indeed lower than a normal ommni but has a good fit of antnenna pattern (downtilt omni). Generally though we recomend the AP-365s for warehoue designs, both for the better fit of antenna pattern and the higher AP power ouput at a lower cost than a 228/318 solution

Yes, the 365 is a good alternative.
