This high gain, 7.75" antenna is perfect for AVL applications where cellular reception is a must. Connector is regular SMA so don't confuse it with 2.4GHz antennas.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Connected to two Horner Elect PLC in order to text tank levels back to water plant. Perfect fit. Units are talking every 40 seconds.
It complies with standard manufacturing product.
I'm using this as a replacement for a tiny strip antenna on my Adafruit FONA 808. My RSSI jumped and now I can put my device in my basement and still get signal.
Perfect for the bladeRF and setting up small cell sites
