Overview

The TW3972 triple-band GNSS antenna with L-band is an ideal antenna for train control sensors, autonomous vehicle tracking & guidance, precision agriculture and other applications where precision matters. The TW3972 antenna provides superior multipath signal rejection, a linear phase response and tight phase centre variation (PCV).

The TW3972 meets all requirements of the Association of American Railroads’ Electronics Environmental Requirements and System Management Standard (S-9401.V1.0). In addition, it is has obtained the EN45545-2, EN50121, EN50155 and EN61373 European railway certifications.

The TW3972 features a precision-tuned, twin circular dual-feed, stacked patch element. The signals from the two orthogonal feeds are combined in a hybrid combiner, amplified in a wide-band LNA, then band-split for narrow filtering in each band and further amplified prior to recombination at the output. The antenna also has a strong pre-filter to mitigate inter-modulated signal interference from LTE and other cellular bands. The TW3972 offers excellent axial ratio and a tightly grouped phase center variation.

The TW3972 is housed in a through-hole mount, weather-proof enclosure for permanent installations. L Bracket or Pipe Mount (part numbers 23-0040-0, 23-0065-0 respectively) are available for non-rooftop installation. A 100 mm ground plane is recommended for non-roof-top installations.

This product is also available in an OEM format (TW3967 for 28 dB and TW3972E for 35 dB).
