The Alpha 4A is an extremely compact, self adhesive, waterproof, GPS antenna. Its 37 x 33mm footprint allows the Alpha 4A to fit onto most surface sizes quite comfortably, and with a modest height of only 13mm, it also provides an unobtrusive profile. The Alpha 4A comes with a strong self-adhesive base that provides a firm fixation to most flat surfaces, including: metal, glass, wood and plastic. The antenna is well suited to the harsher outdoor environment that GPS applications are often subject to. The Alpha 4A can be used for a host of different indoor or outdoor GPS applications: vehicle/fleet/asset tracking, mobile applications or general positioning purposes.
The Alpha 4A has a center frequency of 1575.42MHz for GPS compatibility. The built in Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) provides a 26dB gain for superior GPS performance necessary for strong signal reception from visible satellites; as well as influencing a shorter time for satellite fixing.
The Alpha 4A is supplied, as standard, with a 1 meter RG174 coaxial cable, terminated with an SMA male connector. Custom cable lengths and alternative connector types can be supplied for volume requirements.
