FAL-ANT-12
Penta Band GSM + GPS + WCDMA combination antenna
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
T
he FAL-ANT-12 antenna has been specifically designed for
replacing the FAL-ANT-10 combined antenna and for the
demands of today’s Telematics and AVL systems. Combining a
penta-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz, WCDMA 2100MHz) quarter
wave planar antenna with a high performance amplified GPS
antenna in a single, low profile windscreen mounted wedge. The
FAL-ANT-12 is ideally suited to the current market trend of
manufacturers supplying GPS receivers with an integrated LNA.
Delivering 18dBi (nominal) at the connector, it also meets the
specification of most “high sensitivity” GPS receivers. It is supplied in
black, with 2.5 metres of RG174 cable and is terminated with FAKRA
connectors.
The FAL-ANT-12's unique shape lends itself to a range of internal
mounting options. The compact form-factor, the sample installation and
the excellent price/performance are making out of the FAL-ANT-12
