The TW3972XF extended-filter GNSS antenna from Tallysman is a precision-tuned Accutenna technology antenna providing coverage for triple-band GPS/QZSS L1/L2/L5, GLONASS G1/G2/G3, Galileo E1/E5a/E5b, BeiDou B1/B2/B2a, NavIC L5, including the satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) available in the region of operation [WAAS (North America), EGNOS (Europe), MSAS (Japan) or GAGAN (India)], plus L-Band correction services. It is especially designed for precision triple-frequency positioning.
The radio frequency spectrum has become more congested as new LTE bands are activated and their signals or harmonic frequencies [e.g. 800MHz x 2 = 1600MHz (GLONASS-G1)] can affect GNSS antennas and receivers. In North America, planned Ligado signals at 1525 – 1536 MHz can especially impact GNSS antennas that support space-based L-band correction services (1539 – 1559 MHz). New LTE signals in Europe [Band 32 (1452 – 1496 MHz)] and Japan [Bands 11 and 21 (1476 – 1511 MHz)] have also been observed to interfere with GNSS signals. In addition, Inmarsat satellite communication (uplink: 1626.5 – 1660.5 MHz) can also affect GNSS signals. The new Tallysman XF antennas have been designed to mitigate out-of-band signals and prevent GNSS antenna saturation. Tallysman’s custom XF filtering mitigates all existing signals and new Ligado and LTE signals, enabling the antennas and attached GNSS receivers to perform optimally.
Ideal for train control sensors, autonomous vehicle tracking and guidance, precision agriculture, and other applications where precision matters, The TW3972XF provides superior multipath signal rejection, a linear phase response, and tight phase centre variation (PCV).
The TW3972XF antenna 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 wideband 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 Ligado, LTE and other cellular bands. The TW3972XF offers excellent axial ratio and a tightly grouped phase centre variation.
The TW3972XF meets all requirements of the Association of American Railroads’ Electronics Environmental Requirements and System Management Standard (S-9401.V1.0). In addition, it is also compliant with the EN45545-2, EN50121, EN50155, and EN61373 standards.
The TW3972XF is housed in a through-hole mount, weatherproof enclosure for permanent installations. L-bracket (PN 23-0040-0) or pipe mount (PN 23-0065-0) are available. A 100-mmground plane is recommended for all installations. This antenna is also available in the TW3972EXF OEM format (37 dB) and the low-gain extended-filter TW3972LGXF antenna (20 dB gain).
