Antenna solutions and cabling for dedicated space
Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X) communication is key for the future deployment of ITS. Specifically, coverage on high-capacity roads, such as motorways, and traffic lights are key to increase safety and efficiency. In this context, examples for increasing safety may refer to reducing accidents in traffic jams before construction sites, and increasing efficiency may refer to increasing throughput at traffic lights.
To reach these goals, antennas providing good coverage to the targeted areas is of high importance. For highways, this is mainly realised using directive antennas on gantries or on construction vehicles, whereas around traffic lights, omnidirectional antennas are used. For good coverage, antennas typically need to put up on a gantry, mast or other installation, which again requires an installation which is resistant against environmental conditions. Since installations are typically difficult to access, products should be robust and work for a very long period without requiring service.
HUBER+SUHNER provides a solution for many related applications with its wide portfolio of directive and omni-directive antennas, RF cables and connectors, as well as lightning protectors. Combined antennas (such as Wi-Fi, ITS-band and cellular combined in one housing) may additionally reduce installation effort and cost.
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.
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.
Gas discharge tube (GDT) protectors
HUBER+SUHNER gas discharge tube (GDT) technology based protectors are generally designed as coaxial feed-through devices for 50 or 75 ohm systems. GDT technology based protectors feature DC/AC continuity for remote powering and large bandwidth.
Quarter-wave shorting stub protectors
HUBER+SUHNER protectors based on quarter-wave technology feature excellent protection performance with very good RF specification. For specific applications protectors with internal DC-block are available.
