Hemisphere GNSS Rolls Out A222 GNSS Smart Antenna
Purpose-Built for Harsh Outdoor Applications
Hemisphere GNSS launched the A222 GNSS Smart Antenna. Purpose-built for harsh outdoor applications, the A222 is ideal for both agriculture and basic indicate systems markets as well as other markets requiring flexible positioning.
“When we designed this product, we targeted performance and flexibility,” says Miles Ware, director of marketing, Hemisphere GNSS. “With simple configuration steps and easy-to-use activations, the A222 is designed to grow with your needs, providing consistent performance and precise accuracy at every turn.”
The A222 can be configured from L1-only to multi-GNSS, multi-frequency, RTK-capable. It adds a system component, empowering tractor and farm equipment manufacturers to deliver their own guidance and control solutions to their customers. Designed to excel in challenging environments, the A222 uses Hemisphere’s Athena RTK engine and is Atlas L-band capable. Easy-to-mount and customizable configurations make the A222 versatile.
The A222’s dual-Serial, CAN and pulse output options are compatible with almost any industry-standard interface.
It is Atlas-capable and has the ability to use the new Atlas AutoSeed technology. Atlas AutoSeed allows users to suspend Atlas use for any period, and upon returning to their last location, AutoSeed rapidly re-converges to a high-accuracy converged position.
A222 comes pre-configured with Atlas Basic activated. Atlas Basic provides users of both single- and multi-frequency Atlas-capable products the ability to achieve SBAS-equivalent performance anywhere in the world where the Atlas correction service is available. Atlas Basic offers accuracy of 30 centimeters to 50 centimeters, and instantaneous sub-meter DGPS-level accuracy.
