November 27, 2012 In Receiver

Topcon is proud to be the world leader in advanced satellite positioning technology. As the original pioneer of dual-constellation and G3 triple-constellation integration, Topcon continues to lead all other manufacturers with the most sophisticated receiver technology and design.

One look at the GR-5, and you notice the advanced antenna design. This patented Fence Antenna™ technology provides industry-leading tracking sensitivity and multipath rejection in a compact and lightweight package. By combining this antenna with the latest innovations in tracking algorithms, Topcon has given the GR-5 our most highly advanced tracking performance ever!

The GR-5’s tracking capabilities are not only state-of-the-art, but also deliver unmatched value to our customers by providing accuracy levels superior to other RTK systems in difficult environments. While other systems sacrifice accuracy for tracking performance, the GR-5 gives you the best of both! The GR-5′s design didn’t stop simply with new antenna and tracking technologies, it also boasts numerous advancements such as: an increased number of channels, extended battery life, expanded internal memory options, new internal modem design, internet-compatible firmware, MAGNET software capable and much, much more. It all sums up to… More Performance. More Accuracy. More Productivity.
