Rugged L1/L2 GPS GLONASS Active Maxtena Antenna M1227HCT-A2-SMA

The M1227HCT-A2-SMA is Maxtena’s latest high performance active rugged antenna designed for L1/L2 GPS and GLONASS bands for GNSS satellite applications. The antenna is designed for applications requiring greater accuracy than what L1 only antennas can provide.

The M1227HCT-A2-SMA active helix design features Maxtena’s patented compact and light weight Helicore™ Octofilar antenna technology, offering up to 30dB gain, for GNSS applications that utilize GLONASS and GPS, in one radome housing with a single 50 Ohm SMA connector.

The antenna is packaged in a high quality, durable IP67 sealed radome housing and is terminated with a gold-plated SMA connector for RF feed/input and DC bias/power typically powered from the applications’ GNSS RF module.
