Hemisphere GNSS Launches Next-Gen H220 OEM Board
Offers fast RTK initialization times over long distances
Hemisphere GNSS has launched the Crescent Vector H220, a low-power, high-precision OEM board. The single-frequency, multi-GNSS H220 provides added benefits over the prior generation H200 with a more robust positioning and heading solution. It integrates Atlas GNSS Global Correction Service.
Designed with a new hardware platform, it offers true scalability with centimeter-level accuracy in either single-frequency mode or Atlas-capable mode that supports fast RTK initialization times over long distances. The H220 offers fast accuracy heading of better than 0.30 degrees at 0.5 meters antenna separation in ideal conditions and aiding gyroscope and tilt sensors for temporary GNSS outages. The 109-millimeter-by-71-millimeter module with 34-pin header is a drop-in upgrade for existing designs using the H200.
The latest technology platform enables simultaneous tracking of all L1 constellations including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS. The updated power management system efficiently governs the processor, memory and ASIC for multiple integration applications. The H220 offers flexible and reliable connectivity by supporting Serial, USB and CAN for ease-of-use and integration. Optional output rates of up to 50 Hz are also supported.
The H220 offers integrated L-band support for Atlas corrections providing global sub-meter position accuracy. Hemisphere’s Tracer technology helps maintain position during correction signal outages. H220 is designed for applications including antenna pointing, marine survey, machine control, and any project where high-accuracy positioning and heading is required.
