Versatility the Focus of New Topcon GNSS Receiver
The new MR-2 modular receiver tracks current and planned constellations
Topcon Positioning Group is offering a new modular GNSS receiver system — the MR-2. The system combines all current and planned constellation tracking with a comprehensive set of communication interfaces. It is designed to service any precision application requiring high-performance RTK positioning and heading determination.
“The MR-2 delivers navigation support for a wide-range of applications; it is an ideal component for OEMs needing a custom, high-accuracy modular design for easy integration,” says Jason Hallett, vice president of Topcon global product management. “Its housing is water and dustproof and is built to withstand harsh environments with superior vibration and shock tolerances.”
The MR-2 can perform as a mobile RTK base station, marine navigation receiver, mobile mapping device and as a GNSS receiver for agricultural, industrial, military or construction applications.
“The MR-2 is also designed as a ‘future-proof’ system, meaning it tracks all current and planned constellations, making it a smart investment in the expanding GNSS environment,” Hallett says. “The MR-2 also provides a variety of communication interfaces such as Ethernet, serial, and CAN, allowing for easy integration into any application.”
Using Topcon HD2 heading determination technology, the MR-2’s dual antennas compute high-performance heading and inclination determination alongside the RTK positioning engine for precise navigation and guidance applications.
Topcon says the system also offers best-in-class multipath rejection and, using Topcon Quartz Lock Loop technology, can operate without disturbances in high vibration environments.
