Overview

The lightweight HC600E embedded passive helical antenna covers the Iridium frequency band (1616.0 MHz to 1626.5 MHz) and is designed to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio of communications over the Iridium voice and data modems.

Features

  • 3.7 dBic over full bandwidth
  • Axial ratio: ≤ 0.5 dB at zenith
  • ESD circuit protection: 15 kV
  • REACH and RoHS compliant

Benefits

  • Extremely lightweight (5 g)
  • Excellent circular polarized signal reception
  • Industrial temperature range
  • Remote SBD antenna


Details

Weighing only 5 g, the lightweight HC600 features a precision-tuned helix element that provides excellent axial ratios and operates without the requirement of a ground plane, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Tallysman’s provides an embedded helical antenna mounting ring that traps the outer edge of the circuit board to another circuit board or to any flat surface. To facilitate a successful installation and optimum antenna performance, Tallysman also provides an Embedded Helical Antenna Installation Guide.

A housed version is also available. Click here to learn about the HC600.
