Hercules MA501 Permanent Mount GPS/GALILEO & Wi-Fi Antenna

Added to your shopping cart

MA501 is a combination of high-performance GPS/GALILEO and dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4 2.5/5.2GHz) antenna solution for reliable location information with localised data transfer via WLAN, Zigbee or Wi-Fi. This product incorporates the industry’s most advanced GPS/GALILEO active ceramic patch technology (XtremeGain™) allowing for gains of up to 300% in accuracy compared to traditional antennas. Time to first fix is under 1 minute with all of the industry-leading GPS/GALILEO receivers. XtremeGain technology means the antenna has been tuned for the Hercules environment giving you the optimum antenna solution to enable elimination of data gaps. The 2.4/5.2GHz antenna inside has also been tuned for this enclosure; hence performance is excellent at all bands meaning the antenna works worldwide. It was designed mainly for commercial vehicle and outdoor equipment installations, with extra thick threads, with the cables exiting through the bottom for ease of install. Durable and robust UV resistant PVC housing is resistant to vandalism and direct attack. It is designed for covert mounting as it is only 3cm high when mounted, thus complies with the latest EU directives for height restrictions. The antenna housing is completely waterproof to IP67, and also to IP69K, which means it is waterproof against high-pressure water jets used in industrial environments for cleaning.
