Overview

Weighing only 10 g, the lightweight and compact HC610E features a precision-tuned helix element that provides excellent axial ratios and operates without the requirement of a ground plane. It is designed to receive Iridium Satellite Time and Location (STL) signals, used by STL terminals to provide worldwide position, navigation, and timing independent of GPS/GNSS, via a secure encrypted satellite broadcast signal that is strong enough for indoor reception.

Features

  • LNA gain (28 dB typ.)
  • Excellent axial ratio (≤ 0.5 dB at zenith)
  • ESD circuit protection (15 kV)
  • Supports long cable runs
  • REACH and RoHS compliant

Benefits

  • Extremely lightweight (10 g)
  • Excellent RH circular polarized signal reception
  • Increased system accuracy
  • Excellent signal-to-noise ratio
  • Industrial temperature range
  • Remote SBD antenna


Details

Since GNSS signals may be jammed (intentionally or accidentally) and spoofed, STL signals are a reliable alternative to augment and authenticate time for applications, such as electrical grids, wireless communications networks, and financial systems, as well as position for private and public infrastructure.

The HC610E is an active Iridium antenna that operates in receive-only mode and enables Iridium terminals to be installed tens of metres away from the antenna. It also features a low-current, low-noise amplifier (LNA) and pre-filter to prevent harmonic interference from high-amplitude signals, such as 700 MHz band LTE and other nearby in-band cellular signals.

The HC610E can be installed in a custom enclosure. It provides a base-mounted female MCX connector. An optional embedded helical mounting ring is available to attach the antenna to a flat surface.
Tallysman also provides support for installation and integration of embedded helical antennas to enable the integrator to achieve a successful installation and obtain optimum antenna performance.
