Tallysman HC860 Dual-Purpose Dual-Band GNSS + Active Iridium Helical Antenna
The HC860 helical antenna from Tallysman is designed for precision positioning, covering the GPS/QZSS-L1/L2, GLONASS-G1/G2, Galileo-E1, and BeiDou-B1 frequency bands, including the satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) available in the region of operation [WAAS (NorthAmerica), EGNOS (Europe), MSAS (Japan), or GAGAN (India)] and for active Iridium signal reception. The HC860 also supports active Iridium® reception in the 1616.0-1626.5 MHz band.
This light and compact antenna features a precision-tuned helix element which improve the devices axial ratios and allowing it to operate without the requirement of a ground plane, making it ideal for many applications, including autonomous vehicle navigation (land, sea, and air), handheld land survey devices, automotive positioning, timing and other precise positioning applications.
The HC860 is 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 male SMA connector.
