Family of under-dash telematics antennas for automotive and IoT applications

07-01-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Passives

Mouser now stocks the Trigger under-dash antenna family from Laird Antennas. The innovative five-port VPJ and four-port VQJ Trigger devices are IP67-rated, multiport/multiband telematics antennas that provide excellent cellular 3G/4G/5G/ISM/CBRS, Wi-Fi and GNSS functionality for automotive and IoT applications, including transportation, public safety, asset tracking, fleet operations, and in-vehicle and to-vehicle communications.

The antennas provide a unique L-shaped format and dual-axis VHB adhesive backing, allowing quick and secure mounting in difficult locations. The antennas can be covertly mounted together with or over bulky non-metallic objects, including ventilator ducts, with no drilling needed. This enables the devices to be mounted closer to the vehicle's router or gateway, often located under the dashboard or a seat or in the trunk.

Each antenna is provided with vertical and horizontal V-Pol/H-Pol cellular radiating elements within the same antenna to give better coverage while delivering substantial signal performance improvements and more uniform connectivity and data throughput than conventional antennas. With optimised performance and exceptional around-the-vehicle coverage, the family of devices can be employed in either dense urban environments or remote locations where signals could be weak or obstructed.
