Topcon Announces MR-1 Modular GNSS Receiver

The MR-1 receiver incorporates 72 universal tracking channels and is capable of tracking all signals from GPS, GLONASS and SBAS satellite systems that are currently operational and available for public use. VISOR technology, with dual antenna input support on the receiver, extends capability to enable precise heading determination through use of differential phase computations.

“It has superior tracking capabilities in the most challenging environments,” Rihner said. “It is built to withstand harsh conditions, offering an IP67 dust and water resistance rating as well as a superior level of vibration and shock tolerance.”

The MR-1 was designed with ease-of-use in mind for the operator with “a simple API interface supporting easy system integration and setup.”

Rihner said, “The mature communication interface of the MR-1 allows operators to quickly integrate Topcon’s premium GNSS tracking performance within new systems, and quickly delivers world-class positioning and navigation support to varied applications.”

Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (TPS) designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets. TPS’ parent company, Topcon Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange  – 7732), was founded in 1932.
