Omnidirectional antennae are on track
Two MIMO antennae have been added to Huber+Suhner’s Sencity Rail family, designed to provide high speed data and communication links between trains and the fixed telecomms infrastructure. They can be used to incorporate high-speed, data-hungry applications, such as on-board Internet, fast mobile communications and communication-based train control, says the company.
The omnidirectional 2x2 MIMO antennae will support the frequency range 698MHz to 6GHz which includes LTE, 2G and 3G for all mobile communication networks worldwide, as well as WiFi 2.4 and 5GHz. The distinction between the two is that one is integrated with GPS/LNA and one is not.
They both consist of two broadband radiating elements in a single, compact housing. They have the same mounting footprint as existing units in the family for upgrading to 2x2 MIMO.
They are robust, to survive the harshest rail environments and meet the requirements of EN 50155 and the fire safety requirements of EN 45545-2. They are also protected against exposure to high voltage and current in the event of overhead line failure.
