Model SXBlue - GPS featuring External Power, SBAS and Bluetooth Connectivity (IP65)
The SXBlue is a compact GPS and SBAS module that offers sub-meter performance suitable for a variety of applications including Forestry, Mining, Machine Navigation, Precision Agriculture, GIS and Mapping, at a price that you can afford.
The SXBlue provides a wireless link with any Bluetooth enabled PDA, computer or device, thus eliminating the need for cumbersome cabling.
High Performance GPS
The SXBlue delivers sub-meter positioning accuracy, low power consumption and optional 2, 10 or 20Hz position update rates. It uses a new GPS engine architecture that provides faster startup and acquisition times. With a current almanac and ephemeris, the SXBlue will provide a position within 35 seconds. If it’s been powered within the last couple hours, the SXBlue will provide a position within approximately 20 seconds.
The US Federal Aviation Administration’s Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is now undergoing rigorous final testing for its Initial Operation Capability. Other WAAS-compatible Space Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) are also under development elsewhere such as the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS) and the Japanese MTSAT Satellite-based Augmentation System (MSAS), among others. The SXBlue provides compatibility for each of these free services.
The SXBlue features a Bluetooth and an RS-232 serial ports, both of which may be independently confi gured for versatility. For example, both ports might be set to output either NMEA 183 or RTCM-104. The RS-232 might be configured for RTCM-104 input. A series of LED on the front panel provides useful monitoring information such as Power, GPS, DGPS, SBAS Lock and Bluetooth connection.
COAST Technology allows the SXBlue to use old correction data for up to 45 minutes or more without seriously affecting the quality of your positioning Using COASTTM, the SXBlue is less likely to be affected by differential outages due to differential signal blockages, weak signal, or interference. No other product offers this flexibility.
