The recently launched Trimble NetR9 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reference receiver will be able to support the most challenging applications for the agricultural, mapping, construction, and surveying industries, as well as the earth science groups.
The NetR9, a Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) receiver, was launched for infrastructure, accurate scientific and network applications. The NetR9 can offer maximum functionality and features to users by using just one receiver.
The highly versatile receiver can be utilized as a component of a network solution or a standalone receiver. It provides the total functionality for a geodetic reference station.
It can be specifically utilized for supporting coastal beacons based on differential global positioning system (DGPS), post-processing applications as a field campaign receiver, as a reference station that gathers information for advanced specialized studies, for real-time kinematic (RTK) corrections as CORS, and ultra precision positioning as a component of the Trimble VRS network. It can also be utilized to monitor the VRS networks’ integrity, and physical infrastructural deformation like manmade and natural structures, oil platforms, mines, dams, and bridges
By supporting the latest CMRx communications protocol, it is able to offer corrective suppression to ensure optimized bandwidth as well as complete utilization of all satellites under view. This helps to provide customers with more sturdy positioning data as well as the most dependable positioning capability available currently in the market.
The rugged, light weight receiver has been optimized for field applications with in-built rechargeable batteries. The low power consuming receiver can be utilized during extreme weather conditions and remotely connected projects. It has been awarded the IP67 rating that implies it is totally dust-sealed and can be immersed for about 30 min up to depth of a meter of water. It complies with the MIL-STD standard for temperature extremes, vibration, and drops. Its physical memory is integrated in the circuit board resulting in increased protection of data, specifically for extreme conditions.
Trimble's Infrastructure Division general manager, Pierre Desjardins, revealed that his company was able to redefine once again the industry standard for multi-constellation, high-reliability and ultra fast receivers, thereby offering the required flexibility to customers to tackle present and future challenges.
