Eos Announces New High-Accuracy GNSS Receiver Product Line
The Eos entry-level product, the Arrow Lite sets a new performance standard for high-accuracy GPS receivers that’s compatible with all mobile devices. The company claims users won’t find a better value for a high-accuracy, sub-meter GPS receiver that’s Bluetooth compatible with iOS, Android and Windows.
The second in the Eos product line, the Arrow 100 is the company's advanced real-time, sub-meter GNSS receiver that utilizes both GPS and GLONASS, and is expandable to Galileo, Beidou and QZSS. It sets a new performance standard for sub-meter GNSS receivers by offering superior tracking under tree canopy, around buildings and in rugged terrain, the company says. In addition to supporting SBAS in North/Central America, Europe, Northern Africa, Japan, India and Russia, the Arrow 100 also supports OmniSTAR’s world-wide, real-time sub-meter service.
The most advanced Arrow receiver is the Arrow 200, a dual-frequency, multi-constellation RTK GNSS receiver capable of 1cm accuracy in real time. The Arrow 200 is claimed as the first iOS-compatible RTK and OmniSTAR receiver in the world that works with all models of iPads and iPhones via wireless Bluetooth connection. An iOS NTRIP app that allows the user to log into any RTK network is also available. The Arrow 200 will provide state-of-the-art RTK performance for years to come, says Eos, because it supports current and future satellite constellations: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. It also supports OmniSTAR’s G2, XP and HP real-time world-wide decimeter services.
“After spending more than 12 years designing high-accuracy Bluetooth GNSS receivers,” said Chief Technology Officer Jean-Yves Lauture, “I believe Eos has set the new standard for high-accuracy GNSS receivers that work across all mobile platforms, no matter if it’s iOS, Android or Windows.” All Arrow receivers employ long-range (1km) universal Bluetooth connectivity, so the user can interface to any brand of smartphone or tablet, whether it’s iOS, Android or Windows-based. A variable-power Bluetooth implementation allows the Arrow receivers to communicate up to one kilometer from the mobile device.
Arrow receivers have been optimized to run all day on battery power. The battery pack is field-replaceable and rechargeable separately. It contains smart charging logic so expensive battery chargers are not needed. All Arrow receivers have been designed to meet IP-67 specifications for immersion in water and are completely dust-proof, so they will survive in the harshest environments. The Arrow receiver product line is targeted at high-accuracy applications like GIS, environmental, agriculture, electric/gas/water utilities, surveying, machine control and federal/state/local government.
