PREMO Offers Magnetic Emitter Antennas for Automotive Applications

PREMO, a manufacturer of inductive components, has announced its KGEA-AF-Series of long-range and ultra-long-range flexible antennas. The company claims that the antennas provide up to five time more H-field than standard antennas, and up to 2.5 times mid-range models. Most LF antennas on the market have a length 70 to 80 millimeters for standard range, 150 to 170 millimeters for mid-range, 250 to 350 millimeters for long-range and 500 to 700 millimeters for ultra-long-range (Alma core).

Alma Core technology for car keyless entry systems saves installation and cabling costs, the company reports, and reduces component counts with savings per vehicle of more than $100. The product is designed to be flexible and unbreakable, thanks to a combination of solid echelons, polymer-bonded magnetics and high-magnetic permeability nanowires.

These flexible core antennas typically meet the AEC-Q200 automotive quality standard, as well as waterproof specifications ranging from IP54 to IP69K. Samples are available at the company's website, and are expected to be delivered later this year.
