Low Loss Helium Interconnect

Previously Hotspot devices in Europe had a higher Power Output rating. Now that there is a new restriction on output power in Europe, it has never been more important to use LMR-240 Cable assemblies as the perfect low loss interconnect.

Previously, “RG” type coaxial Cables were used between the Helium Devices and antennas.  RG cables are now a very undesired option due to their very high loss characteristics – combined with their ability to increase their Attenuation over time – directly resulting in degraded Hotspot range and coverage

 

Coax cables should never be bent to a 90 degree, fully straight or a slight curve should always be maintained.

I would remove that cable tie and relax the 90. Also, sma connectors are not really outdoor rated. I would wrap all the connector adaptor junctions (N, sma, etc)in silicone tape.

 

  • Upgrading my hotspot antenna to 8bdi do i need to change any settings in the hotspot ?

When you settle on an antenna you can update the info in the app.

LoRaWAN

The LoRaWAN™ protocol is a global standard that offers a long range (up to 15km) bi-directional communications with very low power consumption, allowing operation for up to ten years on the same battery.

LMR-240 or LMR-400

What is the difference other than signal loss? LMR-400. The number (400) represents the outside diameter measurement of the coax. Most coax cables in this class like RG-8 measures 0.400″.
