Reliable RTK-correction signal:
The strong foundation to build on
All SBG steering systems utilize the most accurate GPS technology available: RTK-DGPS. To gain full benefit from your RTK Steering System, you must have a reliable RTK correction signal. This RTK signal can be produced in different ways.
A permanent RTK base station guarantees a reliable and – above all – repeatable position accuracy. An RTK base station sends the correction signals via a radio modem. Depending on set up, overall height and landscape a radius between 5-25 km can be covered. An SBG base is characterized by a flexible design, free choice of type of radio modems, antennas and set-up.
The RTK SmartBase is a compact mobile base station, without the disadvantages of an ordinary mobile RTK station. The RTK SmartBase offers the flexibility of a mobile base station, combined with the guaranteed repeatability of a permanent RTK base station. The RTK SmartBase is the perfect solution to be fully independent of third parties. Read More…
In a growing number of regions and countries Network RTK services are now available, providing nationwide coverage at a high accuracy level. The correction signal is received using a GSM modem: the GeoConnect 3G. This modem is easily configurable through the GeoSTAR 250 giving the user the ability to enable a different SIM card, switch Network RTK provider or switch from 2G to 3G network.
- Preventing and bridging signal interruptions
- The GeoConnect 3G uses both the UMTS (3G) and GPRS (2G) GSM-network.
- Working with up to 4 SIM cards using a 2nd GeoConnect.
- Up to 3 minutes working after loss of correctionsignal.
