TORRANCE, Calif. – Altus Positioning Systems announced its new handheld ProCyon system for GIS applications.
The new ProCyon from Altus integrates the flexible, rugged Psion WORKABOUT PRO
handheld computer with Altus’
APS-3 RTK GNSS receiver for a powerful GIS data-acquisition platform.
The ProCyon system delivers
one-centimeter RTK accuracy using an external antenna, integrated camera and
quad-band GSM modem. Additionally, the ProCyon has hardware expansion slots,
making the addition of new modules fast and easy, as well as a range of
available add-ons, including fingerprint scanners and the largest selection of
RFID readers on any handheld device.
The ProCyon Windows Mobile
operating system accommodates ESRI ArcPad and ArcGIS applications. Both
programs utilize NMEA messages that are standard outputs from the integrated
GNSS receiver in the ProCyon.
“The ProCyon is built on the
industry-standard platform of the Psion WORKABOUT, one of the world’s
top-selling Windows Mobile devices,” said Neil Vancans, CEO and president,
Altus Positioning Systems. “The ProCyon is an answer to the needs of many
utilities already using Psion products.”
Altus is showcasing the ProCyon and other GPS/GNSS products in
booth 2802 at the Esri 2012 Users Conference in San Diego.
