Topcon's New PN-A5 GNSS Antenna Improves Multipath Mitigation
Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduced the new PN-A5 GNSS antenna that combines the company’s TA-5 full spectrum GNSS antenna element with a newly designed semi-hemispherical convex impedance ground plane.
According to the company, the ground plane design provides improved multipath mitigation and a significant increase in ability to track signals from satellites located near to the horizon.
Utilizing Topcon’s new TA-5 antenna technology, the PN-A5 provides “full wave” signal tracking for all existing and planned GNSS signals by utilizing vertical dipoles for sensitive and stable signal reception.
The geodetic antenna has an IPX7 waterproof and IP6X dustproof rating. It is designed to meet the evolving requirements for reference network and infrastructure monitoring applications.
