Industrial vehicles are typically connected to a network to transmit information on transported goods, status, location, battery charge and other information. This connection is typically wireless since vehicles are highly mobile.
Connectivity can require various features, including high-current and high-voltage protection for rail vehicles operated under a catenary line, salt-water protection when operated on a marine-related installation, or a vandalism proof solution when operated on a vehicle which remains outside during nights.
With regards to antenna size, vehicles may require a separate antenna or a fully integrated solution in the vehicle’s housing. On the electrical side, features may include cellular connectivity, Wi-Fi, GNSS (GPS), Tetra or frequency bands for other services.
HUBER+SUHNER provides a comprehensive portfolio of antennas for all kinds of requirements as well as RF feeder and jumper cables, connectors, RF cable assemblies and lightning protectors to complete the solution required for connecting a radio on a vehicle to the antenna.
HUBER+SUHNER is offering a wide range of unobstrusive and easy to install wideband antennas for distributed antenna systems.
HUBER+SUHNER develops and produces robust, small form factor antennas for various industrial applications.
HUBER+SUHNER is offering various antennas for trains and buses that transmit signals perfectly within the vehicle and along the track.
HUBER+SUHNER is offering a wide range of adapters in various configurations like within series or between series, straight or angled designs and some with panel mount features. Adapters can also be custom designed in accordance with your application specific requirements.
Foam radio frequency cables
The product series Spuma, S and SX provide lowest attenuation, high flexibility and optimal shielding. Products from the Spuma series are similar to the LMR® products from Times Microwave. The series with LSFH jacket material and the radiation crosslinked SX series with the RADOX® jacket offer extremely high flame protection.
Performance radio frequency cables
The PTFE/FEP cables of our RG/K series are designed for applications up to 200 °C and are characterised by low losses, especially at high frequencies. The Enviroflex cables do not contain fluorine plastics either in the dielectric nor in the jacket and thus provide a robust and environmentally friendly option.
