  • Invariant performance from 2.2 to 16 VDC
  • IP67, REACH, and RoHS compliant

Benefits

  • Extremely lightweight (24 g)
  • Ideal for RTK and PPP surveying systems
  • Excellent RH circular polarized signal reception
  • Great multipath rejection
  • Increased system accuracy
  • Excellent signal-to-noise ratio
  • Industrial temperature range
  • Rugged design, ideal for harsh environments


Details

Weighing only 24 g, The the lightweight and compact HC771 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).

The HC771 features an industry-leading low current, low-noise amplifier (LNA) that includes an integrated low-loss pre-filter to prevent harmonic interference from high-amplitude signals, such as 700 MHz band LTE and other nearby in-band cellular signals.

All Tallysman® helical antenna elements are protected by a robust military-grade IP67-compliant plastic enclosure. The enclosure’s base provides two threaded inserts for secure attachment, as well as a rubber O-ring around the outer edge to seal the antenna base and its integrated SMA connector.

Tallysman®’s HC771 has passed a rigorous 30-hour vibration test procedure, consisting of five cycles of 2-hour tests per axis (x, y, z):
___• Cycle 1: 1.05 Grms;
___• Cycle 2: 1.20 Grms;
___• Cycle 3: 1.35 Grms;
___• Cycle 4: 3.67 Grms;
___• Cycle 5: 3.67 Grms.
