I. Introduction
The Spartan MA.600 antenna is a low profile, heavy-duty, fully IP67 waterproof external
M2M antenna for use in telematics, transportation and remote monitoring applications. The
Spartan is unique in the market because it combines a 3in1 GPS, Cellular (2G and 3G) and
Wi-Fi, heavy-duty antenna with high efficiency in a low profile compact format. The antenna
screws down permanently onto a roof or metal panel and can be pole or wall-mounted.
For industries such as commercial vehicle telematics, remote monitoring, smart meter
systems and construction equipment, at only 40mm high, the Spartan provides an
unobtrusive, robust, rugged antenna that is durable even in extreme environments.
All while still maintaining 20dB isolation between antennas. It uses high-shielded PTFE
dielectric ultra low-loss cables that maintain low attenuation at all frequency bands, and high
noise rejection, with an average loss of only 0.3dB per meter (0.1dB per foot), compared to
0.7dB for RG58 and 1.2dB for RG174. Because of this, the Spartan maximizes chances of
passing PTCRB and network approvals first time. The Spartan also has excellent
performance without need to attach to an external ground-plane due to its internal antennas
coupling to its unique super strong integrated metal base. The antenna comes with a 3M
adhesive waterproof layer to prevent water leaking under the antenna into the mounting hole.
The Spartan can also be supplied in single GPS, Cellular, Wi-Fi only versions, or at other
frequencies.
Custom designed integrated wall mounted and pole mounted brackets are available for the
Spartan antennas. These patent pending mounts allow for 180 degrees freedom of
movement of the antennas for ease of positioning while also preventing access to the
cables so they cannot be cut by vandals or thieves and also protecting the cables from long
term weather exposure. The removal of unsightly cables also leads to a cleaner more
professional installation and look, and makes the antenna less identifiable and more
unobtrusive. Customized cable sleeves can be supplied for extra protection where required.
