(businesspress24) - HUBER+SUHNER has launched its new SENCITY® PTC Antenna which boasts the highest number of heavy-rail certifications in the industry.

Deployed throughout the USA, PTC (Positive Train Control) systems are designed to monitor and, if necessary, take control of railway vehicles to provide railway operators with increased safety.

The new SENCITY PTC Antenna by HUBER+SUHNER offers advanced features such as high voltage and high current protection, added protection for the antenna and RF path from catenary line strikes which can destroy electronic devices. The antenna meets the highest requirements for mechanical robustness and fire safety according to the EN 50155 and NFPA-130 standards.

“With PTC systems being safety critical, it is imperative that the antenna is selected with upmost care,” said Daniel Montagnese, Product Manager Railway Antennas at HUBER+SUHNER. “As the cost for nationwide PTC implementation is expected to be around US $6-22 billion, operators need to be certain that they are choosing reliable solutions that are easy to implement and offer the highest safety standards.”

The HUBER+SUHNER antenna offers an ultra-narrow bandwidth, supporting the very high frequency PTC band of 220 MHz. Railway operators can select a standalone PTC antenna or have the option of an embedded multi-band GNSS receiving antenna to support the upper GNSS bands on the GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS constellations. With a highly uniform 360-degree Omni-directional radiation pattern and elevated line-of-sight, the SENCITY PTC antenna ensures stable ground and satellite connectivity for the moving train.

The new SENCITY PTC Antenna offers easy mounting functionality and incorporates an aerodynamic protective cover to guarantee the antenna elements are sheltered from harsh environments, ensuring no disturbance to the signal transmission.
