Taoglas AA.178 (Magma X) Magnetic Mount GPS L1/L5 External Antenna, IP67 Rated

The Taoglas AA.178 (Magma X)is an active, external magnetic mount, GPS antenna supporting both L1 and L5 bands. The L5 band also operates at the same frequency as IRNSS, so the AA.178 can be used to operate on this constellation. It is a high performance, economical solution for the highest accuracy centimeter-level tracking applications. Typical applications include: RTK (Real Time Kinematics) Applications, Precision Agriculture, and Navigation.

This compact antenna exhibits excellent radiation patterns on both GPS L1/L5 bands and with a low noise figure to preserve signal quality helps minimize time to first fix. It also features excellent out-of-band rejection to prevent out-of-band signals from overdriving or damaging its LNAs.

This antenna has been tuned and tested on a 70 x 70 mm ground plane, working at GPS L1 (1575.42 MHz) and IRNSS/L5 (1176 MHz), with a 2 stage LNA ensuring good signal strength. It can operate with an input voltage ranging from 1.8 to 5 volts.
