8dBi Panel This panel antenna is a directional unit with a 60º Beam spread, and It has twice the gain of the Standard SHoW DMX 5dBi Omni.  A good general purpose choice where extra range is required or where environmental interference or reflections are a problem, and where the receiver targets are either stationary or have limited movement. 

These antennas can also be used with a single transmitter in a pair with a splitter to send the radio signal in two different directions (e.g. two sides of a building with the transmitter mounted at the corner).  

Indoor or outdoor use

5634 10dBi Yagi This highly directional Yagi antenna has a 55º Beam width and more that twice the total gain of the Standard SHoW DMX 5dBi Omni.  Yagi antennas focus most of their energy forward producing a highly directional, narrow beam.  A good choice for long range broadcast to fixed targets. 

Indoor or outdoor use

 
5636 14dBi Yagi This highly directional Yagi antenna has a 35º Beam width and more that 8 times the total gain of the Standard SHoW DMX 5dBi Omni. Yagi antennas focus most of their energy forward producing a highly directional, narrow beam.  A good choice for very long range broadcast to fixed targets. 

Indoor or outdoor use

5637 Antenna Splitter Connect two antennas to one transmitter.  This decreases the output to each antenna by 50%, but can allow you to broadcast "around corners." . . .  
5638 Antenna Adapter Cable Adapts between SHoW DMX Transmitter or Receiver's RSMA connector to N connector on antenna.  18" long  . . .  
5639 Turn around adapter for Splitter Two are needed for each splitter.  . . .  



Antenna / Device Connection Matrix

Here is a chart showing what is required to connect the various SHoW DMX Neo products with antennas and antennas accessories:




To use this matrix, match the Product row to the Antenna column.  For example, to find what you need to connect a 5702 SHoW DMX SHoW Baby® 5 to a 5637 Antenna Splitter, follow the 5702 SHoW DMX SHoW Baby 5 row to the 5637 column, and you find a 5638 Adapter Cable.
