Spectra Precisionís Next Generation Survey Receiver Sets a New Industry Standard for Connectivity


Spectra Precision introduced today its next-generation Spectra Precision® SP80 GNSS receiver. Designed to meet the evolving needs of the survey market, the new SP80 is an innovative survey solution that combines cutting-edge GNSS technology and a unique combination of communication capabilities with a distinctive and ergonomic design. The SP80 is an ideal GNSS receiver specifically designed for mainstream surveying and construction applications such as cadastral, topographic, control, stakeout and network RTK.

Spectra Precision SP80 features exclusive Z-Blade™ GNSS-centric technology running on a new-generation, 240-channel 6G chipset. The SP80 is capable of fully utilizing all 6 available GNSS systems (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS), but can also be configured to use only selected constellations in an RTK solution (GPS-only, GLONASS-only or BeiDou-only).The SP80 is also the first GNSS receiver on the market to be compliant with the new RTCM 3.2 standard, including the recently approved MSM RTCM messages, which also makes it the only receiver ready to support all available GNSS corrections.

The extended communication capabilities of the SP80 receiver provide a unique combination of a 3.5G GSM/UMTS modem, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and an optional transmit UHF radio. The receiver’s built-in WiFi and 3.5G modem can provide an Internet connection for RTK corrections and also send SMS or e-mails with system alerts. The SP80 features a unique anti-theft technology to safeguard the receiver and can detect if it is has been disturbed while in the field (for example, when operating as a GNSS base). The anti-theft protection feature informs the surveyor via SMS or e-mail if the SP80 receiver is moved and can provide its position to facilitate recovery.

The Spectra Precision SP80 is extremely rugged and waterproof, yet compact, lightweight and ergonomic for ease of use in the field. When the UHF transmit radio module is used, its UHF antenna remains protected inside the rugged rod, extending the radio range performance. Powered with dual hot-swap batteries for typical all day operation, the SP80 receiver is an ideal tool for any surveyor.

“The Spectra Precision SP80 introduces several major enhancements and innovations, including the new 6G GNSS ASIC with enhanced Z-Blade technology, unique SMS and e-mail messaging and patented inside-the-rod mounted UHF antenna. In addition, SP80 was designed as an extremely reliable receiver, making it suitable for a variety of challenging surveying projects," said Olivier Casabianca, business area director of Trimble's Spectra Precision Division.

Availability 

The Spectra Precision SP80 receiver is expected to be available in February 2014 through the Spectra Precision global dealer network. For more information visit: http://www.spectraprecision.com/ or email: sales@spectraprecision.com.
