TRIMBLE has introduced its next generation of high-accuracy Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers for Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection and mapping.
The GPS Pathfinder ProXH receiver is a high-performance integrated GPS receiver, antenna and battery all in a compact and lightweight unit.
The ProXH receiver uses Bluetooth technology for cable-free communications to a field computer and Trimble's new H-Star technology to provide subfoot (30cm) positioning accuracy, making it the highest performing GPS receiver for mapping on the market today.
The ProXH receiver can deliver subfoot accuracy rapidly and reliably with a minimum of technical overhead - a cost-effective combination that has been lacking until now.
The ProXH receiver is ideally suited for use in high accuracy mapping, data collection and asset management such as water/wastewater, utilities, cadastral, telecommunications, transportation as well as construction and engineering applications.
In recent years, these industries have experienced increased requirements for sub-foot accuracy which, in the past, could only be addressed by long location occupation times or the use of survey grade systems that deliver a much higher accuracy than required.
In addition to the ProXH receiver, the all-new GPS Pathfinder Pro series also includes the ProXT receiver. In the same convenient form factor as the ProXH, the ProXT receiver delivers submeter accuracy.
Trimble H-Star technology is a combination of the ProXH receiver technology, field data collection techniques and postprocessing that allows users to achieve subfoot accuracy. With the addition of an external Zephyr antenna, eight-inch (20cm) accuracy can be obtained.
The ProXH and ProXT receivers come with a variety of mounting options - belt, backpack, range pole or on a vehicle.
