PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: PCTEL Introduces the Rhino™ HDGLDLTE-LFF Heavy-Duty Multiband LTE MIMO Antenna with High Rejection GNSS.

PCTEL's rugged Rhino™ design provides maximum shock absorption for high impact applications and defends against damage from extreme environmental conditions or exposure to vandalism. The antenna also features PCTEL's proprietary high rejection GNSS technology that provides precise GNSS timing and tracking accuracy, even in the presence of interference.

The Rhino™ dual LTE antenna provides optimal 4G LTE coverage in a single, low-profile housing. The antenna also incorporates PCTEL's unique high rejection GPS/GLONASS technology for optimal performance and support of carrier voice and data networks. Glass reinforced Polycarbonate housing and heavy-duty metal base plate makes this antenna extremely rugged and ideal for heavy equipment applications susceptible to high shock impact, including mining, agriculture, construction and defense vehicles. .

It is also ideal for M2M fixed or mobile applications requiring extra protection against vandalism.

Features

  • No tune, multi-band coverage: dual 4G LTE and GPS L1/Galileo, and GLONASS L1 frequencies
  • Ruggedized UV-resistant, fiber-glass reinforced housing for added impact shock absorption and integrity in high vibration installations
  • IP67 compliant design provides maximum protection against water or dust ingress under severe environmental conditions*
  • RF240 low loss pigtails for LTE and high quality connectors for maximum RF system efficiency
  • Metal 1-inch stud mount with slotted jam nut provides single cable exit for easier installation and/or antenna replacement
  • Proprietary filtering design allows wideband coverage while achieving superior out-of-band rejection for all GNSS frequencies
