New Trimble GNSS receiver includes advanced tilt compensation

By on 2 September, 2020

Trimble has rolled out the new R12i GNSS receiver incorporating calibration-free tilt compensation.

The inertial measurement unit (IMU) based tilt compensation capability of the Trimble R12i enables points to be measured or staked out while the survey rod is tilted, and the company says that allows land surveyors to complete work faster and more accurately.

The new Trimble TIP technology builds on the company’s ProPoint GNSS positioning engine, which it claims delivers more than 30 percent better performance in challenging environments compared to the Trimble R10-2 receiver across a variety of factors, including time to achieve survey precision levels, position accuracy and measurement reliability.

“The R12i represents Trimble’s dedication to perfecting the user experience with the industry’s best GNSS engine and now robust tilt compensation,” said Ron Bisio, senior vice president of Trimble Geospatial.

According to Trimble, the TIP technology allows users to accurately mark and measure points in areas previously inaccessible for GNSS rovers such as building corners, or in hazardous situations, for example the edge of an open excavation. The receiver operates calibration-free out of the box and is resistant to magnetic interference from sources such as cars or electrical utility boxes.

The R12i also features real time automatic Inertial Navigation System (INS) integrity monitoring. This system allows users to detect and correct for IMU biases introduced by use over time, temperature or physical shocks helping ensure measurement quality and integrity for the life of the receiver.
