Emlid, the creators of Reach, centimeter-accurate RTK GNSS receiver, has launched pre-orders for its multi-band GNSS receiver Reach RS2.
The new receiver features built-in LoRa radio, 3.5G modem and a survey app for iOS and Android.
Reach RS2 gets fixed solution in seconds and provides positional accuracy down to several millimeters.
The receiver tracks GPS/QZSS (L1, L2), GLONASS (L1, L2), BeiDou (B1, B2), Galileo (E1, E5), and SBAS (L1C/A) and reliably works in RTK mode on distances up to 60 km, and 100 km in PPK mode.
Additionally, its multi-feed antenna with multipath rejection has been designed to offer “robust” performance even in challenging conditions and its RINEX raw data logs are compatible with OPUS, CSRS-PPP, AUSPOS, and other PPP services.
Reach RS2 features a power-efficient 3.5G HSPA modem with 2G fallback and global coverage and its corrections can be accessed or broadcasted over NTRIP independently, without relying on internet connection.
For remote areas, Reach RS2 has built-in LoRa radio that the company said has proven to be a “reliable link” for RTK corrections on distances up to 8 km.
The LiFePO4 battery of Reach RS2 is designed for 16 hours work as 3.5G RTK rover on one charge regardless of weather conditions.
Shipping of the first batch starts in mid-June 2019.
