Quectel L80 is a powerful, slim and Industry Grade GPS module with ceramic patch antenna embedded on top of it. High performance of MTK positioning engine is packed in small LCC package footprint making L80 highly suitable for Industrial Applications where fast positioning, low power consumption and compactness in size is required.
By default L80 supports internal patch antenna but it can also support external active antenna option. Once external active antenna is connected, L80 automatically switches from internal patch antenna mode to external antenna. If external antenna is removed, L80 switches back to internal antenna mode. The switching function is automatic and it continues positioning during the switching process.
L80 offers highest performance for meeting tough industrial application requirements by utilizing advanced AGPS called EASY™ and proven AlwaysLocate™ technology. Using EASY™ technology L80 can quickly fix position at even low signal conditions; requiring low power consumption by calculating and predicting orbits automatically using the ephemeris data (up to 3 days) stored in internal memory. With AlwaysLocate™ technology, L80 can smartly adjust the on/off time to achieve balance between positioning accuracy and power consumption according to the environmental and motion conditions.
L80 performances exceptionally well both in acquisition and tracking; small size, low power, high sensitivity and precision, internal and external Antenna options makes it preferred choice for a range of M2M applications such as Vehicle Tracking System, Personal Tracker, portable devices, automotive, industrial PDA etc.
