Topcon Adds Cellular Connectivity to HiPer SR for GIS

“The integrated modem provides greater functionality for the HiPer SR,” said Jason Hooten, Topcon GIS national sales manager.  The unit can now be used as a cellular base station through the MAGNET® Relay option.  In addition, the cellular feature allows the receiver to provide a connection to existing data collectors that do not contain internal cellular modems.

“With the new cellular modem and HSPA (High Speed Packet Access), the receiver not only enables users to easily obtain Spectrum-RTK (Real Time Kinematic) and RTK corrections via the Internet, it also allows it to function as a mobile base station as part of the MAGNET Relay GIS broadcasting service, ‘relaying’ corrections to multiple rovers,” Hooten said.

“The multiple configuration options make the compact and lightweight HiPer SR extremely versatile for any GIS user,” said Hooten.

Additional features of the HiPer SR for GIS include 226-channel Vanguard technology with Universal Tracking Channels and Fence Antenna® technology for signal tracking sensitivity and multi-path rejection.
