The BAT series of combination antennas by Panorama offer MIMO cellular and Wi-Fi support as well as GPS/GLONASS coverage. The antennas are designed for vehicle use and can be mounted on or under a vehicle dashboard or other non-conductive surface.
The series comes in three primary versions, but each version has a choice of SMA or FAKRA connectors. These are the SMA models most applicable to our audience:
- BATGM-7-38: Includes 2x2 MIMO cellular and GPS/GNSS
- BATGM-7-38-24-58: Includes 2X2 MIMO cellular, GPS/GNSS and 1x (SISO) Wi-Fi Antenna
- BATGM2-7-38-24-58: Includes 2X2 MIMO cellular, GPS/GNSS and 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi
All options come in the same low-profile design intended for mounting on a flat surface like a dashboard. The series is specifically designed for vehicle telematics, but it is not limited to that use.
