Laird Connectivity pronounces the Set off Beneath-Sprint household of antennas with vital efficiency benefits over competing applied sciences
AKRON, Ohio, June 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Laird Connectivity, THE antenna authority, announces the under-the-dash telematics antenna family of triggers. Offers cellular 3G / 4G / 5G / ISM / CBRS, Wi-Fi and GNSS in an innovative format designed to be installed under the dashboard of vehicles and offering significant performance improvements over candy bar antennas
The antenna family includes both four-port and five-port options, each with vertical and horizontal cellular elements within the same antenna. The inclusion of the orthogonally aligned elements improves both received signal performance and quality due to the superior decorrelation of the MIMO pair of cellular ports. In addition, the trigger cellular connections benefit from generally reduced zeros / ripples in the gain pattern and more omnidirectional gain from the vertical dipole element. This configuration can provide an antenna efficiency improvement of up to 20% over competing technologies.
The unique combination of elements optimizes performance over the entire horizon and coverage around the vehicle. This is critical in both dense urban environments and remote locations where signals are either obstructed or weak.
Bill Steinike, VP of Strategic Business Development, Laird Connectivity, said, “The trigger antenna family is a huge improvement in vehicle multiband connectivity over existing technologies. With this development, our team has faced a considerable challenge to enable a new concept design to offer a market-leading solution.
Antenna installations under the dashboard of a vehicle offer complex RF environments and limited installation space. The innovative L-shape of the trigger antenna family enables concealed installation next to or above bulky non-metallic objects such as ventilation ducts. At the same time, the inclusion of both vertical and horizontal radiation elements means that they can offer significant increases in performance compared to conventional flat-shape chocolate bar antennas.
This installability means these antennas can be mounted much closer to vehicle routers and gateways, which are typically placed under dashboards, under seats, or in the trunk of the vehicle. This avoids complex antenna installations that may require drilling roof or trunk lids to install an external antenna. Mounting closer to the gateway also enables shorter cables, which leads to increased RF power.
