Shakespeare expands range

Antenna design company Shakespeare has launched the latest addition to its Galaxy range at this year’s Nor-Shipping with the JellyFish (JF-3), a three-way omni-directional antenna that integrates LTE (2G, 3G and 4G), GPS and Wi-Fi into a single unit for vessel installation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Jellyfish is an IP67 waterproof omni-directional antenna measuring 4cm x 10.2cm that can send and receive cellular signals. The antenna incorporates its own ground-plane and is able to radiate signals on any mounting surface such as metal, plastic or fiberglass without performance being affected.

"The antenna was developed in response to a growing demand for bundled solutions to reduce the number of antennas on vessels and strengthens our capabilities to meet the needs of our commercial customers within diverse applications with reliable, high quality antennas,” said Franck Søgaard, vice president of Jarden Applied Materials and the global leader of Shakespeare’s Marine group.

In related news, Shakespeare has also introduced updated versions of its 8000-H and 9000-H HF/SSB (High Frequency Single Sideband) antennas, which will now be available to be assembled in three sections.

The company says that this will make the products suitable for express shipments for commercial customers, including shipyards, system integrators and shipowners, and allow them to replace a section should a repair be needed, rather than replacing the whole antenna.

The 9000-H antenna is 9m in size and the 8000-H antenna 8m, though they can now both ship in three  sections with the 8000-H shipping in a container less than 3m in length and the 9000-H shipping in a box less than 4m.{/mprestriction}
