Overview

The PCTEL GPSGL-TMG-SPI-40NCB GPS timing antenna with integrated lightning protection is specifically designed for long-lasting, trouble-free deployments in congested cell-site applications. The low noise, high gain amplifier is well suited to address attenuation issues associated with applications requiring longer cable runs.

The proprietary quadrifiliar helix design, coupled with multi-stage filtering provides superior out-of-band rejection and lower elevation pattern performance than traditional patch antennas. This multi-band antenna covers GPS L1, Galileo L1 as well as GLONASS E1 frequencies.

Their unique radome shape sheds water and ice, while eliminating problems associated with bird perching. The antenna comes with surge compliant mounting that addresses industry grounding requirements. Custom models or site kit options are also available.

This antenna is made of materials that fully comply with provisions stipulated by EU directives RoHS 2002/95/EC. The GPSGL-TMG-SPI-40NCB antenna provides integrated, on-board lightning protection capability that alleviates the need for downstream, in-line surge suppressors. It also features ESD, reverse polarity protection and transit voltage suppression.
