SP85 GNSS Receiver Provides Enhanced Connectivity and Positioning Performance
WESTMINSTER, Colo., Jan. 13, 2020—Spectra Geospatial announced today the SP85 GNSS receiver. The receiver adds new functionality and performance over its SP80 predecessor. When using the SP85, survey professionals can achieve fast, high accuracy GNSS-based positioning worldwide.
Built on the patented Z-Blade™ technology, the multi-constellation SP85 receiver uses 600-channel tracking to deliver unprecedented positioning accuracy and acquisition speed using all major satellite navigation and augmentation systems, including the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS). With Z-Blade, the receiver can operate GPS-only, GLONASS-only, Galileo-only or BeiDou-only mode, if needed.
The SP85 includes time-saving features such as dual hot-swappable batteries for all-day performance as well as Real-Time kinematic (RTK) bridge and RTK backup. Integrated 3.5G cellular, WiFi and UHF communications enable optimal connectivity options for VRS access, text messaging and e-mail. A unique anti-theft technology helps track unauthorized movement.
The SP85 is supported by Spectra Geospatial Survey Pro field software to provide GNSS workflows that are powerful and easy to use. In the office, information from the SP85 can be processed using Spectra Geospatial Survey Office software. In addition, the SP85 has a built-in, sunlight-readable display that provides information on satellite tracking, RTK status, battery level and available memory. The receiver is water- and dust-proof and meets rigorous requirements for drops, shock and vibration.
“For years, customers worldwide have relied on the dependability of the SP80 GNSS receiver. The next-generation SP85 offers our customers increased speed and accuracy along with the durability and reliable performance they expect from Spectra Geospatial,” said Olivier Casabianca, vice president of Spectra Geospatial.
The SP85 GNSS receiver and the optional Survey Pro field software are available through the Spectra Geospatial global dealer network. For more information visit: www.spectrageospatial.com or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
