Following up on its introduction of the HiPer SR GNSS receiver, Topcon has introduced the HiPer V with "Vanguard" technology.
The HiPer V provides users not only the choice of GPS and GLONASS signals (as well as Galileo when operationally available), but it also includes a variety of choices of internal radio, cellular and Bluetooth communication options.
With its 226 channels and Universal Tracking, the Vanguard chipset will track signals from all available and currently planned GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellites.
Universal Tracking allows a single receiver channel to automatically select and track any satellite signal, according to the company. In addition, Topcon’s Universal Tracking will automatically weigh the best combination of available signals based on health, geometry and application, providing accuracy, speed of initialization and fixing.
