Antenna design for a module in thick aluminum metal enclosure
I am currently design an IoT device for my home. The design is required to use a thick aluminium metal enclosure. I was wondering if anyone could advise/share a manual to simulate ESP32 antenna in metal enclosure

An antenna cannot radiate through metal. At least one face of the enclosure should be free of metal, with the antenna close to this face. I don't recognise the part number EPS32, do you have the Antenova part number?

Many Thanks
