Laird Connectivity proclaims six new exterior GNSS enabled antennas – Inside GNSS
Laird Connectivity, a global wireless technology provider, is launching six new GNSS-enabled external antennas suitable for a range of applications, including vehicle assembly. Designed for vertical industrial use cases such as public safety, in-building connectivity, fleet management and tracking of physical assets, vehicles and personnel, the products expand Laird’s portfolio of single and multi-port antennas
The GNS1559MPF or Mini GNSS is a rugged, powerful, and affordable small form factor solution for most GNSS or asset tracking applications.
The five multi-port variants provide coverage for cellular, Wi-Fi, GNSS, FirstNet and ESN (Emergency Services Network) frequencies and enable MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and / or navigation / location options within the same Antenna.
“As the demand for connectivity and asset tracking increases, so does the need for additional frequencies or antennas on board that asset,” said Bill Steinike, vice president of strategic business development for Laird Connectivity. “Our new multi-port GNSS antennas are easy to install and only require a single antenna installation for out-of-the-box MIMO operation in addition to location or tracking.”
The flat and robust antenna range can be used for SISO (Single-Input Single-Output) or MIMO applications with multiple ports and is available with a range of port and connection options:
- GNS1559MPF – 1 port (GNSS)
- VHP69273x22J – 5 ports (3G / 4G LTE x 2, Wi-Fi x 2, GNSS x 1)
- VLQ69273x21J – 4 ports (3G / 4G LTE x 2, Wi-Fi x 1, GNSS x 1)
- VLT69273x2NJ – 3 ports (3G / 4G LTE x 2, GNSS x 1)
- VMJ24493x – 3 ports (Wi-Fi x 2, GNSS x 1)
- VLT69273x11J – 3 ports: (3G / 4G LTE x 1, Wi-Fi x 1, GNSS x 1)
All are IP67 rated, have a low profile, high performance and are designed for single hole mounting. With a five-year product warranty, they offer reliable performance in the harshest environments.
