SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today functionality updates to its integrated GNSS survey receiver portfolio, which includes the Trimble® R4, Trimble R6, Trimble R8 GNSS systems and is rounded out by the recently released Trimble R10 GNSS System. The updates include increased satellite tracking and Real Time Kinematic (RTK) performance. These improvements modernize the integrated receiver portfolio to add functionality, flexibility and capability as well as more options for surveyors.
"With the introduction of the next generation Trimble R10 GNSS system we felt it was an ideal opportunity to modernize the complete integrated receiver portfolio," said Erik Arvesen, vice president of Trimble's Survey Division. "The additional functionality in the Trimble R4, R6 and R8 provide surveyors with more capability, flexibility and additional receiver options to meet their ever-changing business needs."
Trimble R8 GNSS System
As an industry-leading GNSS system, the Trimble R8 includes integrated Trimble Maxwell™ 6 ASICs offering 440 channels. Powered by Trimble 360 technology, the Trimble R8 provides consistent and reliable tracking of signals for all existing GNSS constellations and augmentation systems, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. Using the Trimble R8, surveyors can connect directly to the controller, receive RTK network corrections and access the Internet via comprehensive communication options.
Trimble R6 GNSS System
Featuring Trimble R-Track™ satellite tracking technology, a Trimble Maxwell 6 ASIC with 220 channels and support for all GPS and QZSS signals with GNSS upgrade options, the Trimble R6 provides surveyors with a completely scalable and flexible solution. The Trimble R6 supports GPS L1, L2, L2C, and L5 signals and QZSS as standard and offers upgrade options to support GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou signals. The Trimble R6 delivers the accuracy and reliability required for precision surveying with superior tracking and RTK performance.
Trimble R4 GNSS System
Designed for use with the new Trimble Slate Controller and Trimble Access™ field software, the Trimble R4 GNSS System provides a dedicated and reliable GNSS solution that is effective for both real time and post-processed GNSS surveys. The Trimble R4 now supports GPS L1, L2, and L2C and QZSS signals as standard and also offers GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou support upgrade options. The system includes Trimble R-Track technology and a Trimble Maxwell 6 ASIC with 220 channels.
Trimble R10 GNSS System
The Trimble R10 GNSS system is the premier solution of the integrated survey receiver portfolio. Designed to increase productivity, the Trimble R10 provides powerful functionality, including Trimble 360 receiver technology, precise position capture with Trimble SurePoint™ technology, the cutting-edge Trimble HD-GNSS processing engine and Trimble xFill™ bridging technology to "fill in" for RTK corrections in the event of temporary radio or Internet connection outages.
The updated configurations of the Trimble R4, R6 and R8 as well as the Trimble R10 GNSS system are available now through Trimble's Survey Distribution Channel. For more information, visit: www.trimble.com/survey.
