NavCom’s SF-3040 GPS

January 16th, 2012 Comments off

NavCom’s SF-3040 pole-mount StarFire/RTK GNSS Survey Receiver provides RTK-level accuracy up to 40 km away from the base station or decimeter-level position accuracy, anywhere in the world, anytime. Powered by the Sapphire™ Engine, the SF-3040 provides 66 channel tracking, including multi-constellation support for GPS, GLONASS, and SBAS including StarFire.

The SF-3040 supports Ultra RTK™, which allows RTK accuracy (0.5cm +1ppm) at up to 40km from the base station. Combined with NavCom’s industry-exclusive RTK Extend™, users can work farther away from base stations and maintain RTK-level accuracy even during radio outages for up to 15 minutes.

Introducing to you the new Smart Rod system from QBL

Smart Rod System

Smart Rod System

The SmartRod is an innovative telescopic laser rod with a built-in (non-mechanical) digital measuring “tape” combined with a linear laser receiver. The advantage of a “linear” over a “regular” receiver is that the linear receiver can indicate the absolute distance (in mm) between the measuring point and the desired on-grade position. The rod will pick up a rotating laser between 99cm and 4.00m.

To find the lasers elevation, Press the “Measure” button. Then extend the rod until hearing a single *beep* (indicating, that it detects the laser beam) followed by a *double beep* (~1 second later) indicating that it has completed the reading. The keypad attached to the rod’s lower section will display two readings. The first shows the height of the rotating laser (the measurement from the bottom of the rod up to the laser reference). The second is a calculation relative to the first reference measurement or HI taken at a benchmark. This is shown as a – (cut) or + (fill) number.

The Pro Mark 500

The winning combination
The new ProMarkTM 500 offers GPS+GLONASS+20 years of field-proven Magellan technologies. Designed by our GNSS experts, this powerful survey solution delivers state-of-the art RTK features in a light, cable-free rover that gives you maximum mobility and flexibility in the field. Blade engine insures fast initialization, long-range accuracy, robust signal tracking, and secures future constellation evolutions.

Magellan Technology
In addition to the short time to fix, long-range RTK and solution reliability, ProMark 500 includes:

Patented multi-constellation signal processing
RTK solution maintained if data link is dropped
Interoperability with any vendor’s reference station using GPS+GLONASS L1/L2

All-in-one Flexibility
ProMark 500 offers all-in-one communication capabilities. It is the most flexible GNSS surveying system available, offering multiple operating modes, configurations and communication modules (UHF, GSM/GPRS, EDGE) and protocols.

Feature-rich Surveying Solution
The ProMark 500 is available with a MobileMapperTM CX field terminal, a handheld sub-meter GPS receiver for additional work such as pre-survey and GIS data collection.

The ProMark 500 offers extensive equipment interoperability via comprehensive suite of software tools:

FAST SurveyTM field software simplifies data collection and real-time operation.

GNSS SolutionsTM
office software provides powerful support to a wide range of applications, handling both real-time and post-processing data within the same project.

Real Time Data Server Software (RTDS)
is a new software offering land surveying companies the possibility of using GNSS equipment to build their own direct IP RTK corrections server.

The ProMark 500 innovative design, comprehensive user interface and wide range of communications will empower you to extend your survey horizons. Combined with the new FAST Survey field software on MobileMapper CX data controller, plus the highly regarded GNSS Solutions office software, the ProMark 500 system is the unique result of GPS+GLONASS+MAGELLAN.
