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.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
