Huber + Suhner further extends its proven portfolio of SENCITY® rail roof-top antennas with low profile MIMO products. The new SENCITY Rail MIMO antenna is claimed to be a perfect fit for the European market. Using this antenna with just 40 mm height particularly double-decker trains or trains normally travelling in tunnels with tight gauges can be upgraded to the 4G/LTE standard.
This omni-directional antenna consists of two broadband radiating elements for 2G/3G/4G mobile communication in a single compact housing. It supports the frequency range from 790 MHz to 2700 MHz and therefore works with all European mobile communication networks.
The product is said to be particularly interesting for system integrators and rail vehicle manufacturers who are seeking to establish high-data-rate applications, such as on-board internet, CCTV or repeater systems in the train. Thanks to the new SENCITY Rail MIMO antenna, they can achieve a far higher data rate compared to standard antennas.
Customers who have already installed SENCITY Rail low profile antennas benefit from a clever solution: since they use the same mounting scheme, existing antennas can be replaced by this new antenna with minimal effort. This allows system integrators to upgrade the train to MIMO technology quickly and easily.
Like the previous members of the product family, the new low profile antenna impresses with its extremely robust design. It was developed specifically for the railway market and therefore meets the environmental requirements of EN 50155 and the fire safety requirements of EN 45545-2.
