Carlson BRx6 - Carlson Software

GNSS Receiver
GNSS Technology
The BRx6 features the modern AthenaTM GNSS RTK engine, designed with an architecture to accommodate the multiple frequencies from current satellite constellations. Users will experience fast
initialization to RTK, as well as more robust performance from reception of multiple GNSS satellite constellations. The powerful and
lightweight BRx6 receiver may be used as a Base or Rover.
Wireless Options
The BRx6 has an integrated UHF transceiver and a Quad-Band GSM
modem for differential corrections, together with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Base or Rover configuration is user selectable with the UHF
transceiver or GSM Modem for independent RTK operations. Carlson’s Listen-Listen service allows Base/Rover operation via the cellular modem. For RTK networks, the BRx6 can connect to a server
with the integrated GSM modem for worldwide operation. The BRx6
also has Atlas L-Band corrections for Precise Point Positioning for a
third correction option with subscription. In addition, SurvCE/SurvPC provides the option to utilize the cellular modem or Wi-Fi in the
handheld computer via the Data Collector Internet feature.
The BRx6 GNSS receiver with SurvCE/SurvPC delivers a modern and flexible GNSS
RTK product for precision surveys, with an
intuitive and familiar application software.
