Rail Antennas Updated for Multi-Constellation GNSS

Huber+Suhner, a global supplier of optical and electricity connectivity solutions, updated its range of SENCITY Rail antennas to receive signals from all four GNSS: BeiDou, Galileo, GPS and GLONASS.

As passenger numbers rise and more rail vehicles share the same tracks, GNSS receiving modules that simultaneously support satellite systems enable greater precision and higher compatibility with on-board receivers. All new SENCITY Rail antennas can now receive signals from all four satellite systems, allowing for greater accuracy for the operation of rail vehicles worldwide. This gives railway operators the opportunity to gain greater control of their rail infrastructure.

The SENCITY line of antennas are omni-directional railway roof-top antenna family for all types of trains. They are designed to meet the special requirements of railway applications including high current and high voltage protection.

“This latest update to our SENCITY Rail products enables higher location accuracy for railway operators, offering improved safety and better operational planning as railway lines become increasingly congested,” said Daniel Montagnese, Product Manager for Railway Antennas at the company. “This comes just a couple of months after the launch of the industry’s first embedded dual-band GNSS SENCITY Rail MIMO Antenna.”
