Carlson BRX7

BRx7 instrument

OVERVIEW

The BRx7 GNSS receiver with SurvCE/SurvPC delivers a modern and flexible GNSS RTK product for precision surveys, with an intuitive and familiar application software. The lightweight BRx7 receiver may be used as a Rover, or as a Base to send corrections to RTK UAVs or GNSS Rovers.

The BRx7 provides a class-leading 800+ channels, 8gb of memory, tilt compensating ability, and a rugged, compact, IP67-rated housing. Best-in-class RTK performance is provided by the Athena GNSS engine, supporting multi-frequency GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, IRNSS, and Atlas L-band capability. The BRx7 has an integrated dual-band UHF transceiver and a Quad-Band GSM modem together with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Typical applications include Topographic and Engineering Surveys, Construction, Mapping and GIS. Click here to learn more about the Carlson BRx7’s best-in-class features and benefits.

SUREFIX®

SureFix works with the GNSS engine to provide high-fidelity RTK quality information, resulting in improved RTK accuracy, availability, and guaranteed precision with virtually 100% reliability. Particularly helpful when working near or under canopy, the SureFix processor takes several inputs and determines the quality of the RTK solution. This additional process provides the user with high-fidelity information about the quality of the RTK solution, and an invaluable indicator of current accuracy.
