Septentrio has expanded its global positioning system (GPS) and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) portfolio with the new AsteRx-m3 product family.
The receivers target various use cases and according to the manufacturer feature the lowest power consumption on the market, allowing longer operation times.
Septentrio also promises short set-up times and affordability without comrpomising on performance.
“With the AsteRx-m3 product family, Septentrio redefines state-of-the-art GNSS positioning performance,” commented Danilo Sabbatini, product manager at Septentrio. “It was a challenge to design a product that delivers multi-frequency and multi-constellation positioning, combined with Septentrio’s renowned GNSS+ technology while optimising power. The AsteRx-m3 product not only excels in this but does so at a reduced cost”.
The company’s receivers promise “centimetre-level accuracy, availability and reliability in a credit-card sized board”.
The new product family includes three types of GNSS OEM boards.
AsteRx-m3 Pro is the rover receiver, tracking signals from all available GNSS constellations on three frequencies and operating both in single- and dual-antenna modes.
The AsteRx-m3 ProBase, as its name suggests, is a product designed to operate as a reference station for RTK and PPP-RTK networks. It can be used as a base station or for network densification.
The AsteRx-m3 Pro+, its maker said, is the best-in-class full-feature OEM receiver board, flexible enough to fit into any application and to be used either as a rover or a base station in a single- or a dual-antenna mode.
