Antennas are the key to seamless wireless communication. Transmitting and receiving data wirelessly enables the world to connect, analyze and track machines, devices and people to improve efficiencies and safety. In the Connected World we live in, wireless communication is the fabric that binds everything together. There are so many different wireless communication frequencies, data protocols and applications that one antenna design cannot fulfill all of your needs.
TTI’s suppliers have antenna solutions of all types including chip antennas, embedded PCB antennas as well as Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) antennas. Many applications require an external antenna or one that is mounted outdoor. Some antennas are molded into internal case structures. We have solutions for every need.
TTI carries a large selection of RF Modules from high quality suppliers. Once you decide on the necessary protocol, we can help you with device selection and supplier support. Our suppliers have modules with an on-board MCU so it can gather data as well as communicate wirelessly. Some are equipped with a chip or PCB antenna while others have a connector for attaching to an external antenna.
Industrial control systems rely on intelligent modules within DIN rail cabinets and we have solutions to add wireless connectivity to these cabinets to read remote sensor data and to connect to other parts of the control system. For heavy industrial applications we have a supplier with a wireless Ethernet encoder solution.
Combination WiFi and Bluetooth modules are now available so IoT applications can have multiple wireless paths to connect to the internet. With the introduction of LoRa and Sigfox to the LPWAN arena, the dream of having a low cost, low data rate IoT network is becoming a reality. Here are some of the typical applications that we can support.
TTI is ready to help you add wireless connectivity to your design with RF Modules, Antennas, RF active and passive discrete components and connectors.
