A patch antenna is a rectangular shaped low profile radio antenna that can be mounted on a flat surface. Patch antennas typically consist of a flat rectangular metal sheet (often referred to as the "patch") mounted over a larger metal sheet (referred to as the "ground plane".) The assembly is typically contained inside a plastic casing called a radome to protect the antenna structure from damage. Patch antennas are widely used because they are easy to fabricate, modify, and customize.
BCI can provide a wide variety of patch antennas for wireless applications. As there are many options for different needs we have selected a commonly used patch antenna to represent this category.

The unit featured is a wireless outdoor patch antenna. Outdoor wireless antennas are useful in environments where wide angle coverage is needed. The small size of this allows for flexible placement options.
*The specifications for this model are attached at the bottom of this page, please note the mounting option is not included is the standard package.*
It is important to select the proper hardware for a wireless installation and a wireless site survey is highly recommended to ensure proper wireless coverage of a facility. The hardware selection process can be confusing at times which is why we do not list multiple antenna options and instead urge you to contact us for assistance.
