The BATLINK TravelConnector WiFi System TCS-USB-8 is specifically designed for travelers and for use in motorhomes, caravans, or camping trailers. Many hotels, restaurants, rest areas, and campsites offer either free or subscription-based WiFi service. To be able to access this WiFi service from a great distance or below deck, the new TravelConnector WiFi System is the perfect solution. With the TravelConnector System Set, you can easily surf the internet even with a weak WiFi signal!
The TravelConnector TCS-USB-8 WiFi Set consists of a 2.4 GHz 8.5dBi omnidirectional WiFi antenna with a weatherproof IP66 housing, a 5m USB cable, a high-performance WiFi USB adapter with the Ralink RT3070 chipset, and a 2D tilt/swivel mount.
Wide Signal Opening Angle
The 8.5dBi omnidirectional WiFi antenna is optimized for the frequency range of 2.4 to 2.5 GHz. With a 360° signal opening angle, the antenna does not need to be separately aligned. The large vertical 20° signal opening angle of the WiFi antenna also allows for stable connections over long distances with variations in height.
By integrating an active WiFi USB adapter directly into the WiFi antenna, the need for a lossy antenna cable is eliminated. This allows the complete transmit and receive power of the WiFi USB adapter to flow directly into the WiFi antenna without losses, significantly increasing the WiFi signal range.
The WiFi antenna is made of V4A stainless steel, fiberglass (GFK), and POM, ensuring durability even in the harshest environments such as saltwater. It withstands wind speeds of up to 170 km/h and is resistant to temperatures from -20°C to +50°C. With its IP66 certified plastic housing, the TravelConnector WiFi antenna is fully weatherproof and can be used outdoors even under extreme weather conditions.
A Pretty Perfect Solution!
The TravelConnector WiFi System TCS-USB-8 is the solution for stable and reliable WiFi signal in your motorhome, caravan, or camping trailer, whether for a single PC or optionally in combination with a WiFi travel router for multiple devices accessing the remote WiFi network. Thanks to its 360° omnidirectional characteristic, the antenna does not need to be aligned to a specific point. The WiFi set requires no external power supply and can be easily set up and dismantled in seconds using quick-mounting options such as suction cups or magnetic mounts. It's the perfect travel companion - for business or personal use, in your car, vacation rental, campsite, motorhome, or for remote hotspots in the park.
Plug & Play
The TravelConnector TCS-USB-8 set is ready to use right after the simple plug & play installation by connecting it to your PC or laptop using the USB cable. The flexible USB cable can be easily routed and extended up to a total of 40 meters without loss.
WiFi Travel Router - Your Own Hotspot (Optional)
Optionally, the TravelConnector TCS-USB-8 set can be used with a special WiFi travel router (Frontrunner VR400W). In combination with the WiFi travel router, multiple WiFi-enabled devices such as notebooks, smartphones, tablets, IP cameras, etc. can be operated simultaneously and wirelessly. This allows you to conveniently surf with multiple devices at the same time using the existing WiFi connection of the TravelConnector. All settings can be made through a web browser and can be controlled with any operating system. No driver or tool installation is required. The power supply for the WiFi electronics in the antenna is provided by the Frontrunner router, which operates with 11-24V DC voltage.
