Topcon announces MR-1 modular GNSS receiver

Compact, advanced technology, rugged design, simple integration

LIVERMORE, Calif. – September 19, 2011 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announces the release of the MR-1, a rugged, compact GNSS modular receiver with advanced technology.

“The new MR-1 receiver is a ruggedized GNSS platform that delivers Topcon’s G3 and VISOR™ technologies in a compact and easy to integrate package,” said Charles Rihner, vice president of the Topcon Emerging Business Unit.

The MR-1 receiver incorporates 72 universal tracking channels and is capable of tracking all signals from GPS, GLONASS and SBAS satellite systems that are currently operational and available for public use. VISOR technology, with dual antenna input support on the receiver, extends capability to enable precise heading determination through use of differential phase computations.

“It has superior tracking capabilities in the most challenging environments,” Rihner said. “It is built to withstand harsh conditions, offering an IP67 dust and water resistance rating as well as a superior level of vibration and shock tolerance.”

The MR-1 was designed with ease-of-use in mind for the operator with “a simple API interface supporting easy system integration and setup.”

Rihner said, “The mature communication interface of the MR-1 allows operators to quickly integrate Topcon’s premium GNSS tracking performance within new systems, and quickly delivers world-class positioning and navigation support to varied applications.”
