Today at Agritechnica 2015, NovAtel introduced its GNSS-500 Series of competitively priced GNSS patch antennas, featuring an innovative new element and enclosure design. Offering single and dual frequency variants, GNSS-500 antennas track GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou satellite constellations, and support L-Band correction services such as TerraStar.
A multi-point antenna feed results in a more stable phase center and better multipath rejection close to the horizon. This enhances the reliability, accuracy and performance of GNSS-500 antennas in dynamic environments. Signal reception is unaffected by the rotation of the antenna or satellite elevation, simplifying placement and installation. Vehicle mounting is easy with the antennas’ efficient, low profile design and magnetic or screw mounting options.
The GNSS-500 Series includes the single-frequency GNSS-501 and the dual-frequency GNSS-502. Both antennas offer solid positioning performance with excellent multipath rejection, making them suitable for use with NovAtel’s GLIDE pass-to-pass positioning feature, highly popular in agriculture and machine control applications.
GNSS-500 antennas are housed in a durable IP67 water resistant enclosure that meets MIL-STD-810G(CH1) for vibration. Original Equipment Manufacturers are able to customize for branding purposes. Series antennas are available for immediate ordering.
