1. Introduction
The A.40 Hercules is a high performance
thread mount GPS-GLONASS antenna
designed for external use on vehicles and
outdoor assets. Designed for heavy duty
work with one piece C&C machined nickel
plated steel base and threads, there are
also convenient side slots for running
cables laterally. Durable UV resistant
ABS housing is resistant to vandalism
and direct attack. At only 29mm high it
complies with the latest EU directives for
height restrictions, whilst also enabling
covert operation with a diameter of
only 49mm. The antenna is completely
waterproof with an IP67 rating, plus an
additional IP69K rating for waterproof
resistance against high pressure
water jets used in cleaning.
An advanced front end SAW circuit
noise filtering design is used to reduce
potential interference common in such
applications from other nearby high
power radio transmitters.
Cable lengths, types and connectors
are fully customizable.
