July 19, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
With its RAS1575 GPS antenna / receiver combo, Hirschmann Solutions is targeting telematics applications in the transport and logistics industries as well as system integrators in large traffic management systems. Due to its very low power consumption, the RAS1575 is ideal for mobile solutions.

Since the new SE880 GPS module from Telit is utilized in the antenna, it was possible to achieve a very compact size of only 38 x 34 x 15.5 mm. For power supply as well as data communication the device is equipped with a USB 2.0 interface. The navigation data are provided in NMEA standard.

After initialization, the time to first fix is less than 35 seconds. Sensitivity in tracking mode is -165dBm. Positioning accuracy deviation is 1.8 meters or better; speed deviation is less tha n 0.1 meter / sec.
