Topcon HiPer SR and Pocket 3D Bring Easy, Affordable GNSS to Construction Sites

Pocket 3D is powerful, but easy-to-use data collection and control software that has become the de facto standard for grade checking and other measurement applications on a job site. The new version 10.0.2 makes it fully functional with the recently introduced HiPer SR receiver.

The new receiver is not only “perfect for contractors, but also for other non-traditional GNSS users such as landscape architects, law enforcement forensics projects or any others requiring high-accuracy 3D positioning,” said Tony Vanneman, Topcon construction products marketing manager.

Its field-rugged and fully-integrated design delivers a 1,000-foot working radius through Topcon’s new LongLink™ technology.“This innovative wireless data link was developed specifically for the HiPer SR, and provides reliable and interference-free base-to-rover communications that don’t require an FCC license to operate,” Vanneman said. “It’s never been easier to realize the productivity benefits of one-man GPS control,” he said.

Topcon, who led the precision RTK receiver industry with the first ever fully integrated systems, “continues to set the standard with state-of-the-art devices combining leading technology in ultra-compact designs. Cable-free and simple to operate, the HiPer SR is the most compact professional-grade base and rover RTK system available for the construction and survey industry,” he said.

“We took the best signal tracking technologies and packaged them in a small, energy-efficient design,” he said.“Anyone looking for a rugged, easy-to-use, low-cost 3D GPS system will find what they need in the HiPer SR.”

Additional key features of the HiPer SR include:

— Shock-resistant magnesium alloy housing – allowing the HiPer SR to take a 6 ft. (2m) pole drop onto concrete;

— Weighs only 1.8 pounds (0.8kg);

— 226 channel Vanguard™ technology, featuring Universal Tracking Channel™ technology, supports all satellite constellations;

— Fence Antenna™ technology;

— Quartz Lock Loop™ technology for superior GNSS tracking in high-vibration environments, such as on a four wheeler;

— Capable of simultaneous LongLink operation with multiple rovers;

— Sealed battery pack provides more than 15 hours of operation.
