PCTEL’s New Trooper™ Max 5G Antenna Platform Available Through Allied Electronics & Automation | Texas
FORT WORTH, TX, January 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Global wireless technology provider PCTEL Inc. is offering a new low-profile, configurable 5G antenna platform — the Trooper™ Max 5G FR1 — available through Allied Electronics & Automation. The complete 5G FR1 antenna platform covers multiple frequency bands from 617MHz to 6GHz without field tuning. The Trooper Max 5G is ideal for intelligent transportation and public safety applications due to the ability to add Land Mobile Radio (LMR) connectivity through an external whip port.
For over 30 years, PCTEL has been a leading supplier of combination antennas to OEMs in the industrial and corporate sectors, as well as a leading supplier of antennas to the public safety market. . The new Trooper Max platform includes two high-performance cellular ports and two dual-band 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi ports, with an option for an external port for TETRA or UHF LMR frequency bands. The antenna supports major 5G cellular routers in addition to P25 public safety LMRs. It also includes high-rejection GNSS capability for precise location and asset tracking in transportation applications.
“Our GNSS technology expertise and application experience make PCTEL well qualified to understand the best design methods and RF success criteria in a multiband antenna solution,” said Ana Baka, Senior Manager, Antenna Product Line Management, PCTEL. “This is the first multi-band PCTEL antenna platform that supports all Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) segments, including public safety, with just a few SKUs. We designed it to be the perfect combination of functionality, flexibility, durability and RF performance at an excellent price.”
The Trooper Max’s small footprint fits securely between the narrow roof ridges of top-selling public safety SUVs, meeting application installation requirements while providing the RF efficiency and port count of connections required for optimal critical communications. In addition, its shark fin aerodynamic profile makes it suitable for intelligent transport applications with strict aesthetic requirements.
The IP67 rated Trooper Max features a double wall compression seal designed to provide additional water protection around the perimeter of the antenna. This protects the antenna and prevents moisture from entering the mounting surface through the installation hole. The impact and UV resistant housing has been tested to MIL-STD-810G environmental specifications to ensure long-lasting performance in critical public safety and transportation applications. The antenna also incorporates low-loss cable pigtails and connectors for optimum durability and RF efficiency.
In addition to the Trooper Max antenna platform, PCTEL offers numerous wireless technology products available through Allied Electronics & Automation, including purpose-built industrial IoT devices, antenna systems, and test & measurement solutions. .
“As a global distributor for intelligent transportation and other verticals in the wireless communications industry, Allied is well positioned to extend PCTEL’s reach across the world to its existing customer base,” Bakas said. “Allied can also complement PCTEL’s marketing efforts to maximize exposure to the PCTEL brand and enhance Allied’s reputation as a supplier of premium wireless communication products to OEM and end-user customers.”
