Taoglas Leads the Market with Full Range of GLONASS and GPS Enabled Antennas for M2M Devices
The AA.161 Dominator is a magnetic mount GPS-GLONASS IP67, external antenna incorporating a 35mm ceramic patch. It is a wide-band active patch antenna product with a large integral ground that delivers a gain up to 35dB. With the Dominator antenna series, Taoglas is the first company to have a comprehensive range of GPS-GLONASS active embedded antennas (AGGP series) and passive embedded (CGGP) antennas. They are the choice for automotive first tier TS16949 and after-market applications.
“In the coming months, for the first time the true availability of GPS and GLONASS satellites along with the latest generation of GNSS receivers are going to dramatically change the performance of M2M location devices. With close to double the amount of satellites to draw from compared to a stand-alone GPS constellation, we are now going to see quicker time to first fixes with accuracy improving from meters to sub one meter,” said Ronan Quinlan, Director Taoglas. “The ability to view and lock on four or more satellites in traditionally difficult reception areas such as urban canyons, city centers or locations with restricted views of the horizon, will give M2M manufacturers the ability to triangulate and pinpoint locations with greater accuracy and with quicker time to first fix.”
“Taoglas’ new Dominator antennas have been rigorously tested and pre-approved by the leading GNNS receiver companies worldwide and have been shown to display higher and more consistent gain in comparison to competing antennas. Two key components have been engineered from scratch for the Dominator series, a unique wide-band front end SAW filter (critical to prevent out of band noise entering on both GPS and GLONASS degrading the signal) and a high gain 35mm patch.”
