LTE/WI-FI/GPS multiband antenna offers highest gain across the band
August 15, 2013 — Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces its new vehicular mount antenna for 3G, 4G long term evolution (LTE), WLAN, and GPS applications. The GPSDM700/5800SSS (black) and GPSDMW700/5800SSS (white) offer the best gain on the market over multiple frequency bands. By including 5 GHz bands, from 5150 MHz to 5850 MHz, the complete range of IEEE802.11a/b/g/n bands are included in a single device for WLAN applications.
Wider frequency bands (698-960/1710-2170/2300-2700/2400-2485/5150-5850/1575 MHz) are covered in one small, compact 3.5” (88.3mm) tall, 4.16” (105.7mm) diameter at base antenna. This antenna is ideal for voice, mobile video data, fixed broadband, navigation, asset tracking, fleet management, LTE, and 700 MHz public safety applications. Availability of the antenna in black or white allows inconspicuous placement on fleets.
“This new antenna is ahead of the field. Not only does it have full 3G capability, but it supports 4G LTE combined with WLAN and GPS in a very small package,” said Paul Fadlovich , director, North America and Europe, Pulse Electronics Wireless Division. “It will enable our customers to differentiate their products and future-proof designs by offering 4G LTE and all Wi-Fi band capability ahead of wide-scale deployment of heterogeneous networks.”
The broader 698-960 and 1710-2170 MHz bands have a gain of 3 dBi, while the 2300-2700 MHz WLAN band has a gain of 6 dBi compared to the industry standard 2 and 4 dBi. The 2400-5850 MHz Wi-Fi band has a gain of 6.5 dBi. The GPS antenna/LNA gain at 3V is 5 dBic/25 dB and at 5V is 5 dBic/30 dB. The GPSDM700/5800SSS are rugged, aesthetically pleasing antennas with UV and IP-65 protection to ensure a long, reliable, maintenance-free life. They are RoHS compliant.
These direct-mount antennas can be easily mounted through a 3/4 inch (19.05mm) hole. The antenna mount can accommodate up to a 5/8” (15.88mm) thick surface. Products are in stock.
