The described antenna is designed to be used for positioning and/or trackguiding vehicles. All important parameter settings, calibration and updates are carried out via an integrated serial interface or CANopen®.
Antenna HG G-98820 utilizes a completely new antenna concept, which has a larger reading area with a linear transponder positioning function. The antenna is so-called 1.5 dimensional, meaning that it outputs the Transponder code as well as the linear deviation rectangular to the direction of travel and in addition the information “Crossing of the transponder“. The transponder antenna has an output format, which enables the user to configure additional system information. This additional information, for example, may be used by an external visualization system (e.g. vehicle control unit with display) and enables statements regarding the condition and availability of antennas and transponders.
