A Tallysman Accutenna® TW2920 Wideband GPS/GLONASS

A Tallysman Accutenna®
TW2920 Wideband GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo + L-Band Antenna
The TW2920 is an Accutenna technology antenna that
covers GPS L1, GLONASS G1, BeiDou B1, Galileo E1,
SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, GAGAN, & MSAS) and the downlink L-Band (1525 – 1559MHz). The TW2920 provides
superior multi-path signal rejection, a linear phase
response, and tight Phase Centre Variation (PCV). This
antenna is ideal for precision agriculture, autonomous
vehicle tracking and guidance, and other applications
where precision matters.
Dimensions (mm)
The TW2920 features a dual-feed wideband patch
element, plus a low-loss pre-filter followed by a three
stage Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) including an additional
mid-section SAW. This configuration provides excellent
axial ratio across the full frequency band and strong
protection against high level sub-harmonic signals like
LTE and near frequency signals such as WiFi.
The TW2920 has a compact, robust, magnetic mount
housing with a metal base and a UV resistant, tough
wide temperature range plastic radome, and is available
with a variety of connectors. The housing includes a
screw down option, and is available with an adhesive
attachment, without a magnet,

The TW2920 is also available with an “armoured” cable.
option, with the cable encased in tough corrugated
conduit having a temperature range of -40 to +120C,
excellent chemical resistance, stable bending, high cold
impact strength, and UL94HB flammability standard
compliant.
