Written by Topcon Positioning Group   
Thursday, 10 October 2013

Livermore, Calif., USA/ Capelle A/D Ijssel, The Netherlands – October 10, 2013 – Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of the GR-5 receiver with Vanguard™ technology, designed to optimize tracking and performance.
 
“The GR-5 is a next-generation GNSS receiver, built on multi-constellation integrated technology pioneered by Topcon,” said Scott Langbein, director of product marketing.
 
“Now with the inclusion of Topcon’s exclusive 226-channel Vanguard technology with Universal Tracking™, and the power of full-wave Fence Antenna™ technology that provides multipath rejection in difficult environment, the GR-5 operates with unsurpassed sensitivity, tracking accuracy and performance.”
 
In addition to Universal Tracking, Vanguard technology includes Quartz Lock Loop™ for signal processing in heavy vibration applications and Intelligent Tracking Optimization™ to select the best combination of available satellite signals.
 
Langbein said, “At any time, end-users can track all available satellite signals and be assured of getting accurate measurements regardless of environmental conditions.”
 
Additional features of the GR-5 include:
• Cellular and radio: The GR-5 has both cellular and radio communications, which allows it to be used in radio-based RTK and network RTK systems;
• Long-range UHF radio: The top-mounted radio antenna extends the range of RTK radio performance;
• Operating time: GR-5 hot-swappable batteries are designed for full-day operation;
• MAGNET™ Field: MAGNET Field software can be used with the GR-5 RTK system, providing the ability to share data to cloud storage and connect field crews to each other and the office.
