New active GPS timing antenna delivers high gain and low noise

18-09-2023 | PolyPhaser | Passives

PolyPhaser has released a new active GPS timing antenna. With high gain and low noise, this new timing antenna filters and amplifies GNSS L1, GLONASS G1, and BeiDou B1 global positioning signals received from satellite constellations. Precise timing and positioning data and phase synchronisation are crucial in agriculture, mining, construction, defence and security applications, law enforcement, and public safety.

This new timing antenna enfolds prime frequency spectrums. It functions within 1559MHz to 1563MHz and 1574MHz to 1606MHz, with high out-of-band rejection with an integrated 28dB LNA. Its coverage incorporates the essential GPS L1 band employed by GPS satellites.

This active GPS timing antenna supplies clear, strong signals. With high gain of 31dBi, it can capture weak signals in challenging environments. Its RHCP design minimises signal interference and multipath effects, improving signal quality.

This new active GPS timing antenna recovers timing and positioning data for timing reference and phase synchronisation. It supplies a low 1.5dB noise figure, providing for longer commercial-grade cable lengths and making installation versatile and economical. It is compatible with several types of mounting brackets.

The antenna is externally grounded with a DC feed through the RF cable. For both reliability and convenience, it uses a threaded TNC female connector. The active antenna is fully ruggedised and IPX6 rated to prevent water ingress.

“This new GPS timing antenna is perfect for GNSS L1, GLONASS G1, and BeiDou B1 global positioning signals received from satellite constellations,” said product line manager Kevin Hietpas. “It excels at capturing weak signals, operating with low interference and covering the frequencies our customers use the most.”
