Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The NovAtel 42G1215A-XT-1 is a dual-frequency active antenna for GPS L1 and L2 with an ARINC 743 footprint.



The NovAtel 42G1215A-XT-1 GPS L1/L2 antenna with ARINC footprint is part of the 42G1215X-XX-X product family which uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) signal reception in the L1 and L2 frequency bands. The baseplate is designed to be compatible with
ARINC 743 mounting hole and footprint requirements. An O-ring seal between the antenna and your platform ensures easy installation.

The product family is available in passive and active (amplified) configurations. The active configurations offer 2-stage integrated bandpass filtering for high out-of-band rejection, and limiter diodes to protect sensitive receiver electronics. The passive configurations are best suited to applications where the antenna is located close to the GNSS receiver and offers the lowest insertion loss to minimize the noise figure of your system.
