HUBER+SUHNER launched its new SENCITY® PTC Antenna which boasts the highest number of heavy-rail certifications in the industry.
The new SENCITY PTC Antenna by HUBER+SUHNER offers advanced features such as high voltage and high current protection, added protection for the antenna, and RF path from catenary line strikes that can destroy electronic devices. The antenna meets the highest requirements for mechanical robustness and fire safety according to the EN 50155 and NFPA-130 standards.
The HUBER+SUHNER antenna offers an ultra-narrow bandwidth, supporting the very high frequency PTC band of 220 MHz. Railway operators can select a standalone PTC antenna or have the option of an embedded multi-band GNSS receiving antenna to support the upper GNSS bands on the GPS, Galileo, BeiDou, and GLONASS constellations. With a highly uniform 360-degree Omni-directional radiation pattern and elevated line-of-sight, the SENCITY PTC antenna ensures stable ground and satellite connectivity for the moving train.
The new SENCITY PTC Antenna offers easy mounting functionality and incorporates an aerodynamic protective cover to guarantee the antenna elements are sheltered from harsh environments, ensuring no disturbance to the signal transmission.
