TURIN, Italy/ FORT ATKINSON, Wis., USA – March 1, 2017 – Topcon Agriculture announces a new modular GNSS permanent RTK (real-time kinematic) base station — the MR-2. Combining all current and planned constellation tracking with a comprehensive set of communication interfaces, the MR-2 is designed to service any precision application requiring high performance RTK positioning.
“The MR-2 delivers navigation support for a wide-range of applications — it is an ideal component for OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) needing a custom, high-accuracy modular design for easy integration,” said Jason Hallett, vice president of Topcon global product management. “Its housing is water and dustproof and is built to withstand harsh environments with superior vibration and shock tolerances. The MR-2 is also designed as a ‘future-proof’ system — meaning it tracks all current and planned constellations — making it a smart investment in the expanding GNSS environment.”
A variety of communication interfaces such as Ethernet, serial, and CAN are available. The MR-2 also offers best-in-class multipath rejection.
