Topcon recently rolled out its new HiPer II, an integrated, dual-constellation (GPS + GLONASS) Real Time Kinematic (RTK) and static receiver.
“The new HiPer has fully customisable functionality and provides industry-leading flexibility to fit any survey requirement, from the most simple of chores to the most complex assignments,” says Mark Contino, vice president of product marketing.
The system supports both GPS and GLONASS signals, and offers a choice of internal radios and cellular modems, including the choice of spread spectrum or digital UHF frequencies, and GSM or CDMA modems.
It also provides expanded internal SD memory storage and supports multiple field controllers and software solutions, including TopSURV and Pocket-3D.
Contino said its IP67 environmental rating means “the HiPer II can withstand the harshest work conditions.”
Additional features of the HiPer II include:
- rugged, lightweight magnesium alloy construction
- Bluetooth wireless operation
- easy-to-read LED control panel
- voice messages for receiver status
- removable, rechargeable Li-ion battery.
“The HiPer II is also the perfect network RTK rover, and eliminates all the hassles associated with external modems or cables,” Contino said.
“The unit’s clear voice messaging system is multilingual and gives operators information about RTK status, low battery and memory status without having to look down at the field controller.”
