New! Product of the Week

Leica Geosystems introduced MC500, a 12-channel dual frequency GPS receiver. The MC500 survey-grade product is packaged in a rugged aluminum housing and incorporates ClearTrak signal processing technology for signal reception, satellite tracking, multipath mitigation and jamming resistance. It uses real-time kinematic (RTK) techniques to provide ten independent position solutions per second with latency of 50 milliseconds to an accuracy of one centimeter. The MC500 is ideal for earthmoving and mining equipment, hydrographic, agriculture, port control and monitoring applications. (Leica Geosystems, Torrance, Calif.)
