Emlid has released the Reach RX network rover, a high-performance multi-band RTK rover with a focus on simplicity.
To start a job, simply enter the credentials for your corrections network (NTRIP), no more configuration is required. Reach RX fits in a pocket and is easy to carry anywhere you go.
Uncompromising centimeter accuracy
Emlid Reach RX is a multi-band rover tracking GPS/QZSS, Galileo, Glonass, and Beidou. It’s designed for working with any corrections network (NTRIP) to provide centimeter-accurate positioning. If no network is available, you can create your own using Emlid Reach RS2 or RS2+ as a permanent base and Emlid Caster to send RTK corrections.
From the box to a FIX in under 60 seconds
Emlid Reach RX connects to the ReachView 3 app over Bluetooth Low Energy. The app uses the Internet connection on your device to access the corrections stream and send it to the rover over Bluetooth. Reach RX eliminates the chance of getting a wrong setup, as it doesn’t require any configuration. Now you can trust collecting and staking out points to your team members even with no in-person training.
Rugged rover with a pocket-sized design
Emlid Reach RX has an incredibly compact design. The pocket-sized rover weighs just 250 grams. You can take Reach RX wherever you go—carry it in a backpack pocket or attach it to your clothing. Reach RX features IP68 ingress protection. The rover operates at temperatures ranging from -20 to +65 °C (-4 to 149 °F).
The Reach RX battery gives you 16 hours of work on one charge. The receiver charges from a power bank, USB wall charger, or a computer USB port over Type-C.
Surveying with the ReachView 3 app
Reach RX comes with the ReachView 3 app for iOS and Android. With ReachView 3, all you need to do is to enter the network credentials for Reach RX, and you are all set for collecting or staking out points. If you stick to another app, you can stream your positional information from Reach RX and continue gathering data for your project with a familiar interface.
Emlid Reach RX is available for pre-order at the Emlid online store for $1599. The shipping starts in early October.
