HUBER+SUHNER has extended the capabilities of its rail rooftop antennas with the launch of the railway industry’s first embedded dual-band GNSS receiving antenna that meets all of the industries’ stringent requirements. Adding to its established SENCITY® Rail antenna portfolio, the new MIMO rooftop antenna enables railway operators to improve geo-spatial positioning and time precision of their operations.
Supporting both the upper and lower GNSS bands, this latest innovation enables pin-point location accuracy for the most rigorous applications such as autonomous trains. With greater transparency of movement on the tracks, railway operators can now improve the operational planning of densely crowded railway tracks and metro lines.
Daniel Montagnese, HUBER+SUHNER Product Manager for Railway Antennas, commented that the GNSS port on the antenna supports a higher number of satellite constellations. This enables operators to improve signal acquisition time, as well as reducing the impact of obstructions in order to increase efficiency on the tracks. The GNSS port is complemented by two broadband Cellular and Wi-Fi compatible ports that can be deployed for a variety of different train to ground services.
The SENCITY MIMO Rail antenna supports the GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS constellations. The antenna’s robust design also meets the stringent EN 50155 railway standard and is fire retardant according to EN 45545-2 and NFPA130.
