GPS L1 Direct Mount Miniature External Antenna
The Taoglas A.60, an active GPS antenna, is a high-performance, high-rejection GPS L1(1575.42MHz), external permanent mount antenna. It has a high gain of 30dB all enclosed in a with a diameter of just 44.3mm and an extremely low height of 13mm. With its miniature enclosure, the A.60 is a great direct mount GNSS solution used for timing applications near Wi-Fi and Cellular transmitters.
The integrated filters feature very good rejection across all non-GPS frequencies to prevent overdriving or damaging your GPS receiver from nearby transmitters. At the commonly used LTE frequencies between 700MHz-850MHz, the A.60.3A21 features greater than 60 dB of rejection. Between 1700MHz-1910MHz, the A.60.3A21 features approximately 50 dB of rejection. Even with the very good out of band rejection, the A.60.3A21 maintains a very low noise figure of 2.0 dB at 1575.42 MHz. This low noise figure minimizes the overall signal degradation typically caused by losses in transmission lines.
The enclosure is IP67 rated and when mounted, making it ideal for use in harsh, humid and wet environments. The enclosure is made from durable UV resistant PC, weighing in at only 28g (1oz), making it extremely light and economical for shipping. The A.60 antenna has a high efficiency of 63% and system gain of 31.18dB.
Typical applications include:
- Base Stations
- Connected Enterprise
The A.60 comes with a direct mount MCX female connector and 4 x 4-40 UNC screw holes for ease of installation.
