L1 L2 GPS GLONASS Active Antenna

April 27, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Maxtena Inc., developer of wireless antenna designs, has the L1 L2 GPS GLONASS active helix antenna for GNSS satellite applications.

This L1 L2 GPS GLONASS active antenna, M1227HCT-A2-SMA, updates and replaces the M1227HCT-A-SMA antenna which appeared in 2010.

The design has been mechanically upgraded and is packaged in a durable IP67/68 sealed radome housing; it is terminated with a gold plated SMA connector for RF feed/input and DC bias/power, typically powered from the applications’ GNSS RF module.

The M1227HCT-A2-SMA active helix design features Maxtena’s compact and light weight Helicore Quadrifilar antenna technology and a built in dual-stage-LNA and filtering, offering up to 30 dB gain, for GNSS applications that utilise GLONASS and GPS, in one radome housing with a single 50-Ohm SMA connector.

With robust antenna construction and small size of the helix antenna it is a solution for applications across various markets such as UAV’s, GIS and Wearable GNSS.
