Topcon claims that its HiPer VR GNSS receiver is compact, light and benefits from advanced GNSS technology. The firm says that the rugged design is built to withstand harsh construction environments.
Using Topcon’s sophisticated GNSS chipset with Universal Tracking Channels technology, the HiPer VR tracks every satellite signal. The compact, rugged design also features an integrated IMU and eCompass.
The HiPer VR can be used for static or kinematic GNSS post-processed surveys: as a network RTK rover with the FC-5000's internal 4G/LTE cellular modem; as a UHF/Longlink jobsite RTK rover; and also in Topcon’s patented Hybrid Positioning solution.
Key features include universal tracking technology for all satellites and constellations (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, IRNSS, QZSS, SBAS) covering all modernised signals, as well as a compact form factor ideal for Millimeter GPS and Hybrid Positioning. They also include a novel 9-axis IMU and ultra-compact 3-axis eCompass, as well as an integrated 400 MHz UHF Tx/Rx Radio Modem and an ultra-compact 3-axis eCompass that compensates for mis-levelled field measurements out of plumb up to 15°.
