Septentrio Launches New GNSS Receiver
Developed for time and frequency transfer applications
Septentrio has launched its most advanced GNSS receiver yet for dedicated time and frequency transfer applications, the PolaRx5TR.
“Septentrio’s timing receivers have established themselves as trusted market leaders for time and frequency transfer applications” says Francesca Clemente, product manager for the PolaRx product line. "The PolaRx5TR continues in this tradition with updated GNSS technology, compliance to new standards set by CCTF and an auto-calibration feature reducing initial setup times."
The PolaRx5TR is the newest addition to Septentrio’s PolaRx product line of GNSS receivers. The new receiver has 544 hardware channels and supports all major satellite constellations including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and IRNSS. A calibration circuit is incorporated into the PolaRx5TR to measure and compensate for the internal delay. The feature removes the need for calibration using external equipment and ensures measurement latching is always accurately synchronized with the PPS input.
Septentrio’s newest receiver is fully compliant with the new format CGGTTS version V2E of Consultative Committee for Time and Frequency (CCTF) recommendations. Septentrio’s Advanced Interference Mitigation (AIM+) technology is also standard. Up to eight independent logging sessions can be configured logging to either the 16 GB internal memory or to an externally connected device.
Septentrio designs, manufactures and sells high-precision, multi-frequency, multi-constellation GPS/GNSS equipment, which is used in demanding applications in a variety of industries including marine, construction, agriculture, survey and mapping, GIS, and UAVs. Septentrio receivers deliver GNSS positions scalable to centimeter level, and perform under heavy scintillation or jamming. Septentrio receivers are available as OEM boards, housed receivers and smart antennas.
