  • 03-Apr-2011 10:22 EDT


Pulse Electronics’ ultra-thin, active global positioning system (GPS) antenna features global 3G functionality, including general packet radio service (GPRS), global system for mobile communications (GSM), universal mobile telephone system (UMTS), and wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA). The W4150GG5000 antenna can be installed with either side facing up so only one antenna is required, whether mounting on the windshield or dashboard, to make installation simple. It receives location information from a GPS satellite and uses the cellular network to transfer this location information to a central control center or third party. The antenna assists in vehicle and asset tracking and location, navigation, emergency call systems, and fleet tracking. It comes in a small elliptical package of 100 x 50 mm (3.94 x 1.97 in) and a height of 8 mm (0.31 in).
