Spectra Precision SP80

Spectra Precision has announced a new GNSS receiver, known as the SP80. The receiver features Spectra Precision’s Z-Blade GNSS technology running on a sixth generation 240-channel chipset. The SP80 is capable of accessing the 6 available GNSS systems (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS), but can also be configured to use only selected constellations in an RTK solution (GPS-only, GLONASS-only or BeiDou-only).

The SP80 is also the first GNSS receiver on the market to be compliant with the new RTCM 3.2 standard, including the recently approved MSM RTCM messages, which also makes it the only receiver ready to support all available GNSS corrections.

The receiver provides a 3.5G GSM/UMTS modem, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and an optional transmit UHF radio. The receiver’s built-in WiFi and 3.5G modem can provide an Internet connection for RTK corrections and also send SMS or e-mails with system alerts.

Additionally, it features anti-theft technology to safeguard the receiver, and can detect if it is has been disturbed while in the field (for example, when operating as a GNSS base). The anti-theft protection feature informs the surveyor via SMS or e-mail if the SP80 receiver is moved and can provide its position to facilitate recovery.

The receiver is ruggedised and waterproof, yet compact, lightweight and ergonomic for ease of use in the field. When the UHF transmit radio module is used, its UHF antenna remains protected inside the rugged rod, extending the radio range performance.
