HUBER+SUHNER, a leading global supplier of optical and electricity connectivity solutions, has today revealed the latest updates to its range of SENCITY® Rail antennas, providing the industry with unparalleled quality, performance, and approvals for railway applications.
Following the recent trend of Multi-frequency GNSS systems becoming operational such as Galileo and BeiDou, there is increasing adoption of next-generation solutions to utilise the advancements in satellite communication, giving railway operators the opportunity to gain greater control of their rail infrastructure.
As passenger numbers rise and more rail vehicles share the same tracks, GNSS receiving modules that simultaneously support BeiDou, Galileo, GPS and GLONASS satellite systems allow for greater precision and higher compatibility with on-board receivers. This latest update from HUBER+SUHNER now ensures that all SENCITY® Rail antennas can receive signals from all four satellite systems, allowing for greater accuracy for the operation of rail vehicles worldwide.
“This latest update to our SENCITY® Rail products enables higher location accuracy for railway operators, offering improved safety and better operational planning as railway lines become increasingly congested,” said Daniel Montagnese, Product Manager for Railway Antennas at HUBER+SUHNER. “This comes just a couple of months after the launch of the industry’s first embedded dual-band GNSS SENCITY® Rail MIMO Antenna.”
