- Combining a high-performance GPS/GNSS receiver and an antenna in a single ruggedized housing, AntaRx is easy to install and offers multiple communications options
Septentrio, a leader in high-precision GNSS* positioning solutions, has announced the launch of a new smart antenna, ideal for machine automation and control in construction, precision agriculture and logistics.
The AntaRx smart antenna is robust inside and out. Enclosed in a ruggedized housing, it can handle high levels of shocks and vibrations and is ready for operation in harsh industrial environments.
Built on Septentrio’s long standing GNSS experience, this multi-frequency receiver delivers high-accuracy RTK positioning down to the centimeter level. Equipment manufacturers and system integrators can benefit from the versatile offering including INS (Inertial Navigation System) integration, dual antenna mode, and 4G cellular communication.
“AntaRx combines the renowned positioning quality of Septentrio with a high-quality antenna, in a rugged and compact housing for simplified installation. The product targets industrial applications such as construction and mining, offering a high degree of robustness validated through extensive testing against industry standards,” stated Silviu Taujan, Product Manager at Septentrio. “AntaRx is available in several configurations, either as a GNSS smart antenna or as a GNSS/INS smart antenna system, integrating an industry leading IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit).”
Septentrio adds AntaRx to their established machine control GNSS receiver portfolio, with positioning solutions used by some of the largest construction companies in the world. This receiver technology integrates Septentrio’s GNSS+ algorithms, including advanced multipath mitigation, which allows uninterrupted operation in challenging conditions such as near high structures or machinery. High update rate and low latency ensure accurate plan execution during fast movement or rotation
