ALTUS ANNOUNCES SECOND-GENERATION GNSS RTK ROVER, SHIPPING SEPTEMBER 2014

 

APS-NR2 Features Built-In Wi-Fi, Web Interface, Low Power Consumption and Light Weight

Torrance, CA. – May 28, 2014 – Altus Positioning Systems today announced the introduction of its new APS-NR2 RTK surveying receiver. The new product is being previewed at the 2014 Geo Business conference and exhibition in London May 28-29, and will be commercially available in September.

The APS-NR2 is Altus’ second-generation RTK rover, building on the highly successful APS-3 product series.  It features an on-board Web Interface that is easily accessed via Wi-Fi from any browser or device, for easy wireless configuration and status monitoring. In addition, real-time data is streamed via integrated Bluetooth for true cable-free operation. In parallel to RTK positioning, raw data can be recorded on internal memory (8 GB) for post-processing. 

The APS-NR2 is built around a leading-edge low-power 132-channel GPS/GLONASS L1/L2/L2C SBAS receiver, which offers robust DGNSS and RTK performance. The internal 3.5G Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE + HSPA cellular modem supports RTK network connectivity. Dual internal cellular antennae ensure a positive signal lock and minimize disruptions due to dropped calls. In addition the, APS-NR2 features an intelligent auto re-connect feature to restore cellular connections automatically after dropped calls.

The new Altus receiver comes with two Li-Ion batteries. It has a built-in USB battery charger, as well as a separate two-bay external charger. The batteries are hot-swappable, allowing uninterrupted productivity on the job.

For GIS users, the Web Interface provides an easy configuration tool to stream NMEA messages with RTK accuracy for Esri ArcGIS Online or similar mapping applications.


With Altus’ open-architecture philosophy, the user also has a choice of data collector software from Carlson SurvCE, MicroSurvey FIELDGenius or proprietary customer-developed software.


The APS-NR2 doesn’t sacrifice essential processing power or connectivity and still weighs only 0.7 kg (1.5 lb).  The compact receiver is just 69 mm (2.7 in) high and 167 mm (6.6 in) in diameter.  The rugged unit is waterproof to IP67 and has an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C.

“The APS NR2 provides a powerful combination of robust GNSS RTK performance, light weight, low power consumption, versatile Quad-band GSM + HSPA modem, on-board Web Interface, and  access and connectivity with Esri’s cloud-based platform,” said Neil Vancans, Altus president and CEO. “The result is a versatile product designed to enhance productivity and minimize downtime in the field for a wide range of surveying and geo-location jobs.”

Summary of Features:

  • Light weight – At 1.5 lbs., the APS-NR2 weighs the same as a dozen glazed doughnuts.
  • Dual-cellular antennae – With automatic switchover, users will minimize downtime due to signal loss.
  • Unlimited flexibility – It works on virtually all RTK network.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi – Users can configure and monitor the unit and stream data directly to their own tablets.
  • Supercharged – It runs all day on hot-swappable batteries and recharges from any USB port.
  • Esri Compatible – It communicates seamlessly with Esri cloud-based platforms.
  • Open architecture – Users can choose their own data collector software or interface directly with Esri ArcGIS Online.
