GNSS Solutions (UK) Limited, Carlson’s UK reseller are proud to announce the launch of Carlson’s new BRx6 multi-constellation GNSS smart antenna. The BRx6 contains a multi-band 372-channel GNSS receiver, world-class Athena© RTK technology and an integrated Atlas© L-band receiver. In addition, the BRx6 contains electronic sensors that measure tilt, direction (electronic compass) and acceleration. Fully supporting SurvCE’s (Carlson’s data logging software) advanced features, such as LDL (Live Digital Level or e-bubble), leveling tolerance, auto by level, tilted pole correction and advanced stakeout features. SurvCE contains sophisticated checks for compass and acceleration anomalies to ensure accuracy.
Manufactured to Carlson’s exacting specifications by Hemisphere GNSS, the BRx6 provides robust performance and high precision in a compact and rugged package at an affordable price. With multiple wireless communication ports and an open GNSS interface, the BRx6 can be used as a precise base station or as a lightweight and easy-to-use rover.
The BRx6 receiver is powered by a state-of-the-art Athena RTK (Real Time Kinematic) engine. RTK corrections can be received over internal Satel UHF radio modem, GSM/GPRS modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or serial connection.
The BRx6 also works as a base and rover with the new Carlson Listen-Listen cloud-based low latency RTK correction delivery service. The Carlson Listen-Listen service taps into the built-in GSM/GPRS modem and negates the need for UHF radio communication and therefore eliminating any interference issues. Multiple RTK rovers, including competitor’s systems can “talk to” a single BRx6 base by GSM/GPRS modem or wifi hot spot over long distances. It reduces or eliminates dependency on VRS systems. Listen-Listen is provided on a free, 30-day trial basis with each BRx6 base and rover package purchased.
The BRx6 receiver can also be used with the subscription-based Atlas service, Hemisphere’s industry leading global correction service provided over L-band communication satellites and the internet. BRx6 users can achieve sub-decimeter positioning performance anywhere on earth, without the need for a fixed base station, a virtual reference network or other communication infrastructures.
The Carlson BRx6 GNSS receiver is designed to work seamlessly with most data collectors including Carlson’s rugged and popular data collectors: the Carlson MINI2, the Carlson Surveyor2 and the Carlson RT3 Ruggedized Tablet.
