Antennas

HyDip Tank Gauging devices are supplied with a single combined antenna for 3G/4G and GPS. It has two cables, each with an SMA/M connector at the end.

Alternatively users can use a higher 3G/4G gain antenna in locations where the 3G/4G signal is weak.

Mount the antenna on a horizontal bracket so that the top faces flat against the open sky.

Connecting the antennas

Checking the identity labels on each cable, connect each antenna to the correct SMA/F connector of the HyDip Device.

🚧

The antennas must be the right way round

Check the identity labels on the cables carefully and do not remove them.

Although the GPS and 3G/4G antennas both have SMA/M inputs, do not confuse them. GPS and 3G/4G antennas have very different characteristics. They may still work if incorrectly connected, but both 3G/4G and GPS reception and battery life may be impaired.
