LIVERMORE, Calif. – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) released the HiPer receivers 10 years ago. Now, Topcon introduces the HiPer V with its patented Vanguard technology.
Ewout Korpershoek, TPS senior vice president and chief marketing officer, said, “Now with Vanguard onboard the HiPer V, there is no other one-stop source for the most advanced, affordable and productive GNSS receivers regardless of the application.
“The HiPer V provides users not only the choice of GPS and GLONASS signals (as well as Galileo when operationally available), but it also includes a variety of choices of internal radio, cellular and Bluetooth communication options, as well as state-of-the-art power supply.”
The core of the HiPer V is the new Vanguard GNSS technology. With its 226 channels and Universal Tracking, the Vanguard chipset is future proof, as it will track signals from all available and currently planned GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellites.
“Topcon’s Universal Tracking provides a whole new definition of ‘channel technology.’… Universal Tracking allows a single receiver channel to ‘automatically’ select and track any satellite signal,” Korpershoek said. “Because our channels are not pre-programmed to receive only one specific signal or a type of signal, Topcon users will always receive the maximum number of signals at any given time. In addition, Topcon’s Universal Tracking will automatically weigh the best combination of available signals based on health, geometry and application, providing unmatched accuracy, speed of initialization and fixing. HiPer V will work at places where other receivers will not, at highest accuracy and with greatest ease of use.”
Other unique features include the rugged, durable magnesium alloy housing, the choice of communication options and a long, rechargeable battery life.
