One compact, rugged package for mobile applications from 27 MHz to 6 GHz

July 8, 2010 –- Pulse Electronics, a worldwide leader in electronic component and subassembly design and manufacturing, introduces its new Larsen brand NMO (“new Motorola”) high-frequency (NMOHF) vehicle-mounted mobile antenna mount featuring an integrated active GPS antenna in a single compact rugged package.  With a broad operating frequency range of 27 MHz to 6 GHz, this combination antenna/mount provides GPS coverage for vehicle tracking and location applications together with wireless voice/data coverage.

Pulse’s NMOHFGPS series mount combines aesthetics with a small footprint and low profile, measuring only 4.5” long by 2″ wide and just 0.7″ tall (114.30mm x 50.80mm x 17.78mm).  An input voltage of 3 or 5 volts DC provides compatibility with most commercially available GPS navigation systems.  The integrated NMOHF mount provides impedance matching at frequencies above 1 GHz, superior to that of the industry standard NMO mount.  The mount is easily converted from low to high frequency through the removal of the mount center pin, which creates a coax-type connection optimal for high-frequency applications.

“The Pulse Larsen line invented the original NMO mount, developed the NMO high-frequency mount, and continues to set the standard for NMO antenna technology by increasing the NMOHF mount series to include GPS/mobile combinations,” said Steve Bruegger, Pulse sales manager for the Larsen brand.  “This antenna/mount configuration is ideal for public safety, telematics, machine-to-machine (M2M), automated meter reading (AMR), or any mobile application which requires wireless and GPS capabilities.”

The NMOHFGPS antenna mount provides an IP65 rating to protect against possible water ingress.  Additional information regarding the NMOHFGPS series of mobile/GPS antenna packages is available at
