The Alpha 6 is a compact, puck shaped, glass-mount GSM & GPS combination antenna. This antenna combines two separate antennas into a single package that measures only ø71 x 14mm. The Alpha 6 is well suited to most GSM & GPS systems that require an ‘all-in-one’ antenna solution. Combination antennas are perfect for applications where the use of multiple antennas is not an option for installation or space confinement reasons. Supplied with an adhesive base, the Alpha 6 is great for quick and simple installations onto a number of different surface materials such as: metal, glass, wood and plastic. The use of an adhesive base takes away the need to drill holes or apply adhesive substances - simply ‘peel & press’ the antenna into its desired position. These features make the Alpha 6 very popular with vehicle and asset tracking applications.
The Alpha 6 is built with two separate antennas inside: a quad band GSM antenna and a GPS antenna. The GSM antenna is a 850/900/1800/1900MHz dipole providing global GSM and GPRS coverage. The GPS antenna is built with a 28dB Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) to provide strong satellite fixing in most circumstances where the antenna has full view of the sky.
The Alpha 6 is supplied, as standard, with either a 2 meter or 4 meter RG174 coaxial cable (one for GPS, one for GSM), with the GSM cable terminated with FME female connector and the GPS with an SMA male.
