Galtronics Introduces Industry's Thinnest LTE Omni-Directional Antenna for In-building DAS

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 20, 2014) - Galtronics Corporation Ltd., a Baylin Technologies (TSX: BYL) company, has launched the patent pending PEAR S5606i Ultra Flat In-Building Antenna, the industry's thinnest omni-directional antenna for in-building ceiling mount applications such as Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

This ultra-flat antenna combines minimalist design with high performance. At just 1.1-inch thick with a diameter of 11.8 inches, the slim profile of the PEAR S5606i is ideal for the aesthetic of modern, high-tech buildings, low-ceiling environments or where building owners demand antennas which are as unobtrusive as possible. Operating from 698-960/1710-2700 MHz, the vertically polarized antenna can be installed on low ceilings. A mounting kit designed by Galtronics makes for easy installation of the antenna on either an acoustic or hard ceiling.  "We have found the best performance in the small form factor," said Ben Bar, Galtronics EVP Sales and Marketing."

The biggest challenge for Galtronics in developing the thinnest in-building antenna design was getting it to a low VSWR, which the company has achieved and is in the process of obtaining a patent for this innovation."

In addition to its ultra-flat design, the PEAR S5606i weighs in at just 0.86 lbs. The omni antenna's very low-profile, white radome can be painted in different colors to match the surroundings of a DAS installation, while delivering the best performance for an antenna its size at 698 MHz.

"This new product is another example of translating our customers' requests into industry-leading, unique antenna products," said Ephraim Ulmer, President and CEO of Galtronics. "We are proud of our innovative engineering teams, which found a way to work with the laws of physics and make what at first seemed impossible, possible."

Technical specifications:
Frequency Bands: 698-894 MHz, 894-960 MHz, 1710-2180 MHz, 2180-2700 MHz
Dimensions (Diameter/Height): 11.8" x 1.1"
Weight: 0.86 lbs. (390 g)
Horizontal Beamwidth: Omni (360 degrees)

Galtronics will host demonstrations of the new antenna from May 20-22 at its booth 221-223 at the 2014 Wireless Infrastructure Show in Orlando, FL.
