MAGNET Field: Status - SV Tab (Satellite View)

About the Status menu

The Status menu Displays information about the current position of the GNSS receiver, RTK status, and satellite constellations.

Status is comprised of four tab windows

  • Position
  • System
  • Scatter Plots
  • SVs (Satellite View)

Note: 

The options available in this menu are dependent upon the instrument type specified in the Survey Job Configuration within the Configure Menu 

Accessing the Status Menu

  • To access Status from the MAGNET Field Home screen
  • Click the Setup icon 
  • Click the Status Icon

Using theS Vs tab

  • When opened the default view is of the Position tab
  • Click the SVs tab

The SVs tab displays a graphical representation of the position of the satellites in the sky or the signal - to - noise ratio  (SNR) values

The right side of the dialog shows a list of sateliite constellations being tracked

  • Toggle between SNR and Plot to observe the satellites skyplot or the signal-to-noise ratio for the satellites signals.
  • Click List to obtain the table displaying the satellites parameters
  • Click SNR to display a graphical representation of the Signal to Noise Ratio

 

  • The list shows the Satellites being tracked at a given time
  • By pressing the corresponding icon, you can display or hide each satellite on the skyplot or in the List representation

Note: satellite constellation availability depends on the purchased OAF and corresponding settings in the Tracking dialog (Instrument Wizard Configuration) and GNSS receiver type.

  • The GPS satellites constellation icon is always available.
  • To review the data for a specific constellation Click on the icon for the values you wish to hide
  • In this example, notice only satellites from the GLONASS constellation are displayed
  • Click plot to return to the Skyplot view
  • Click List to obtain the table displaying the satellites parameters:
  • The check box defines whether the satellite is used in position computation. 
    • CA: shows the signal to noise ratio in the C/A channel on the L1 frequency [dB*Hz]
    • EL: shows the elevation angle of the satellite
    • AZ: shows the azimuth of the satellite
    • H/U: shows whether the satellite is healthy or unhealthy
    • L2: shows the signal to noise ratio in the P channel on the L2 frequency [dB*Hz]
    • L2C: show the signal to noise ratio in the C/A channel on the L2 frequency [dB*Hz]
    • L5: show the signal to noise ratio on L5 frequency [dB*Hz]
  • Select the Option button on the upper left corner of the diplay to access
  • Antenna Setup to view the current selection in the instrument configuration
  • Reset RTK command
  • Tracking to configure the GNSS receiver to track the satellite systems and satellite signals and to select a satellite constellation to be used for position computation
