The Belgian firm’s new dual-antenna integrated heading receiver is aimed at applications in industry and precision agriculture.

Septentrio’s latest high-precision GNSS receiver delivers accurate pitch or heading and roll information along with its highly accurate positioning, according to the firm.

Material released by Septentrio states that the newest receiver is ‘designed as an ‘install-and-forget’ device providing continuous positioning for demanding industrial applications. Machines and autonomous systems now have access to heading and pitch or heading and roll information immediately from power-up allowing trajectory path optimization and fully informed navigation from mission start.’

In line with previous products like its lightweight Altus NR3 receiver and the single-antenna AsteRx SB, the AsteRx SB ProDirect is a minimal device in form and function, aimed at providing top shelf positioning performance at its price point, at the expense of a large feature set.

“The AsteRx SB ProDirect brings the very essence of GNSS positioning and position independent heading, needed for robotics, machine control and similar applications”, said Chris Lowet, Product Manager at Septentrio.

“It comes in a simple no-frills, ruggedised, easy-to-install package so you can quickly get started and have reliable positioning and heading throughout your project.”
