Antenna description


The Next Generation of Global Satellite Communication

The Iridium Low-Profile Ceramic Patch Thru-Hole Mount Antenna (2JCP2542601a) is bringing the next generation of global communication within Iridium standards. With a hemispherical radiation pattern, the 2JCP2542601a offers exceptional connectivity in 1616MHz-1627MHz frequencies.

The 2JCP2542601a offers the most reliable global connectivity on the market including poles, oceans, and airways. With a peak gain of ~5.1 dBi and ~82.3% efficiency, the 2JCP2542601a is the ideal solution for worldwide satellite voice and data communication in commercial, residential, emergency and transportation markets. This antenna is right hand circularly polarized (RHCP) rejecting multi-path interference and optimizing signal strength. The 2JCP2542601a is an economical solution, making it suitable for high volume and mass production of satellite communication devices.

Suggested Applications
– Commercial/ Residential
– Emergency Communications
– Voice & Data Satellite Communications
– Transportation
– Satellite-based telecommunications

The antenna reaches its maximum gain when is placed in the center of the PCB and when it faces the sky – which is critical for high-performance applications. The high-quality ceramic housing offers the 2JCP2542601a durability and protection in extreme environments withstanding temperatures between -40C and +80C. With low-profile dimensions (25 x 25 x 4 mm) and ground plane independence, this compact thru-hole mount antenna is easy to install in space-restricted areas. This item is manufactured within RoHS compliance and a complete Iridium certification.

Development Kit

The 2JCP2542601a is also available with a 6 count Ceramic Antenna Development Kit, allowing to carry out rapid antenna prototyping in-house and avoiding costly non-recurring engineering (NRE) development fees. For more details about the development kit, see product ID 2JDK0226a-A28.
