SLX-2
• GPS,WAAS, L-band, RTK,
and more
easy configuration using NMEA 0183
commands and queries.
• Sub-meter 95% horizontal
accuracy and up to 5 Hz
position update rates provide
the performance you need.
The SLX-2 also has an on-board socket and
mounting holes for an optional CSI Wireless
SBX beacon receiver.
New built-in real-time
kinematic positioning engine
provides better accuracy than
standard C/A code processing
•
• New COAST™ technology
allows the SLX-2 to operate
with old correction data
New raw measurement data
provides information needed
for post-processing
•
Optional on-board socket for
installation of a CSI Wireless
SBX beacon receiver
•
On-board regulated power
supply eliminates the need for
an external power supply

Introducing the SLX-2
The SLX-2 is the most
sophisticated, cost-effective OEM
DGPS receiver system in the
world today. Only the SLX-2
delivers such a complete offering
at a competitive price.
Fully Featured
The SLX-2 includes GPS, WAAS,
L-band,
real-time kinematic,
post-processing, high accuracy,
high position update rates, and

A variety of DGPS sources
Regardless of where you are in the world or
your situation, the SLX-2 will deliver accurate
positioning using one of a variety of built-in
correction sources.
The SLX-2 offers WAAS, L-band, and RTK
DGPS operation. It also accepts any external
RTCM SC-104 correction data. The SLX-2 is
easily augmented with DGPS Beacon
reception by dropping in a CSI Wireless SBX
beacon engine.
WAAS
The US Federal Aviation Administration’s
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is
now undergoing rigorous final testing for its
Initial Operational Capability. Other WAAScompatible space-based augmentation
systems are also under development, such as
the European Geostationary Navigation
Overlay System (EGNOS) and the Japanese
MTSAT Satellite-based Augmentation System
(MSAS), among others. The SLX-2 provides
compatibility for each of these free
correction services.
accuracy does not degrade as a function of
distance from a base station. OmniSTAR is a
subscriber-based service and offers
competitive service rates.
DGPS Beacon
Many authorities around the world have
installed networks of DGPS radiobeacons
that broadcast free GPS correction
information. When in range of a DGPS
beacon, the optional on-board SBX will
provide accurate, reliable correction data.
Real Time Kinematic
CSI Wireless is proud to introduce a new
RTK engine for the SLX-2. This robust L1
RTK solution provides a more accurate
position than receivers processing only C/A
code position solutions. After a short
initialization, this DGPS mode will provide
you with better than 20-cm horizontal
accuracy (95% confidence) in real-time.
COAST™ Technology
Our new COAST™ technology allows the
SLX-2 to use old correction data without
seriously affecting the quality of your
positioning. Using COAST™, the SLX-2 is
less likely to be affected by differential
outages due to differential signal blockages,
weak signal, or interference. No other
product offers this flexibility.
OmniSTAR®
What is the warranty?
The SLX-2 is capable of using the
OmniSTAR® Worldwide DGPS Service that
provides users with high quality correction
data. Using correction data from a network
of reference stations, OmiSTAR’s Virtual Base
Station algorithms ensure that positioning
CSI Wireless is committed to its customers
and products, and offers a limited one-year
warranty on parts and labor.
