navXperience 3G+C Control Antenna
Like all 3G+C series antennas, the NavXperience 3G+C Control receives all frequencies from all satellite navigation systems. The 3G+C mobile is the standard antenna for all dynamic or mobile, high precision, GNSS applications.
Typical applications for this mobile antenna are surveying, installations on vehicles and wherever only short cable lengths (typically under 10m) are required.
The production of the 3G+C series meets high quality standards with respect to processes and materials used. The housing material is designed to be extremely durable, UV resistant and color true. Even after years of use it will appear like new. The upper and lower housing are laser-welded to ensure that neither air, dust, nor water can penetrate its interior, even at pressure differences of 2.5 bar (36 psi). This is also true for the standard TNC connector. Because it is integral to the case and was specifcally designed for this housing. Thus, the 3G C series complies with IP69k and all tests of MIL-STD 810g.
One of the antennas numerous advantages is excellent reception of satellites at low elevations, i.e. weak GNSS signals. This is an outstanding property, because the reception characteristics for these satellites are generally poor due to a longer path through the atmosphere.
The 3G+C Control antenna enables weak signal tracking of GNSS satellites to the horizon (0° elevation) with sufficient quality, while other high-precision antennas typically lose track at 7° elevation or are providing such poor signal quality that the GNSS receiver cannot use it.
This unique attribute of the 3G+C antenna results in improved productivity for the user, because it will enable more satellites being tracked and faster positioning with better signal quality (C/No).
In applications experiencing roll and pitch motion, such as machine control or on-board of ships, low elevation satellite tracking with good signal quality allows the GNSS receiver to determine its position more accurately and with less noise.
