ARKNAV GPS Tracking System

100% Real-time Visibility with Zero Blind Spots

AR-186 GPS, GLONASS, 2G and 3G Multi-band Antenna

For GPS tracking systems, M2M solutions and telemetry applications

Introduction

A telemetry or M2M device is only as good as the antenna it uses. A bad quality antenna might compromise the whole system, and compared to the effort and cost you might spend uninstalling and repairing the system - buying a good quality antenna is really a no-brainer!

AR-186 is designed for discrete installation on a vehicle windscreen, behind a rear mirror or under a dashboard using the supplied 3M™ automotive adhesive tape. It deploys a highly efficient wide-band ceramic patch antenna, as well as a GSM/GPRS/UMTS PCB antenna, which covers GPS L1, GLONASS G1 and Galileo E1 bands. Featuring a front end SAW filter, a 2-stage Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) and an extra SAW filter, AR-186 effectively reduces noise and increases the signal quality. Also, its unique 10 watt RF suppression protection prevents spurious radiated emissions from compromising the system, which makes AR-186 the best solution for automotive, M2M and telemetry applications.

AR-186 is supplied with high quality RF cable and is available with various connector types. Its wide operating temperature design allows AR-186 to be used in harsh environments. All our antennas are made and tested in our own factory in Taiwan to very strict quality control standards. We are more than happy to offer a free testing sample to prove our antenna’s performance and quality.
