The 3235MSMA high performance GPS L1 permanent mount antenna is designed for fleet management and asset tracking applications requiring a low-profile and compact footprint while supporting precision GPS operation. This antenna platform offers two high gain antenna options and outstanding out-of-band rejection performance for ideal RF system interoparability when installed along other RF radiators.
The 3235MSMA GPS vehicle tracking antenna features light, low profile housings that are highly adaptable for vehicle tracking or marine navigation applications. Their radome is molded from high grade polymer resin for UV and abrasion maximum resistance under severe environmental conditions.
These antennas utilize an electrically shielded LNA PCB assembly and ceramic filter designed to provide high out-of-band rejection for optimal integration in multi-band installations.
- High performance — Industry leading out-of-band rejection performance; 26 dB or high gain 35dB gain options
- Minimal visibility — Due to low-profile housing
- Rugged — Durable housing; ESD protection
- Ease of installation — Permanent through hole design with slotted jam nut
- Fleet management
- Asset tracking
