Adhesive mount combo antenna

30 June 2020 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The Taoglas MA256.A is a 3-in-1 adhesive mount combination antenna for use in cases requiring worldwide 4G coverage and GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo for positioning. The MA256 has been designed to be mounted directly onto glass or plastic and can be mounted internally in vehicles, via high-quality, first-tier automotive approved 3M adhesive.

The MA256 offers a convenient and economical alternative in-cabin mounting solution to larger permanent/on-roof mount solutions. It covers fallback to 3G/2G bands where 4G coverage is not available and can also be used to cover Cat. M1/LTE-M and NB-IoT bands.

4G wireless applications demand high-speed data uplink and downlink. High-efficiency and high-gain MIMO antennas are necessary to achieve the required signal-to-noise ratio and throughput required to solve these challenges. Taoglas also takes care to have high isolation between the two MIMO antennas to prevent self-interference.

The IP67 waterproof PC/ABS enclosure measures just 128 x 76 x 12 mm including the 3M foam adhesive. The antenna can be mounted internally or externally on a vehicle. Both MIMO 1 and MIMO 2 coaxial cables are 2 m with SMA(M) connectors, and the GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo cable is 2 m and also includes an SMA(M) connector.

Typical applications include automotive vehicle tracking, telematics, video streaming and robotics/autonomous. Customised cable and connector versions are also available.
