The Olympian MA140 is a high-performance combination LTE and GPS/GLONASS/GALILEO screw mount antenna in a compact housing, for external use on vehicles and outdoor assets worldwide. The LTE antenna functions equally well on 2G and 3G. The GPS/GLONASS/GALILEO antenna has stable gain and radiation patterns on both bands. The antenna can be mounted on metal and plastic structures.
Durable UV resistant IP67 ABS housing is resistant to vandalism and direct attack. A rubber O-ring is provided under the antenna to prevent water entering under the antenna. If the lower frequency bands are required the antenna functions best when mounted on a metal ground-plane, but can still work well with short cable lengths below 1 meter on plastic structures and is locked from the inside of the structure by a nut. The thread is extra small, allowing for installation in the tightest of environments.
Customized cable length and connectors are available. Taoglas recommends a minimum of 1m cable length for stable antenna performance. When mounted on a ground plane, the antenna can function well at all frequencies up to 3 meters cable length. Generally, antenna efficiency of less than 20% at the connector would lead to unreliable wireless system performance.
