OVERVIEW AND FEATURES
The BRx6 is an all-new multi-GNSS, multi-frequency smart antenna designed by
and for surveyors. The BRx6 delivers robust performance and high precision in the
field in a compact and rugged package. With multiple wireless communication
ports and an open GNSS interface, surveyors can use the BRx6 in a variety of
operating modes. The BRx6 can be configured as a precision base station sending
RTK corrections via UHF radio or using the new Carlson Listen–Listen cloud-based
low latency RTK correction delivery service. Configured as a lightweight and easy
to use rover, the BRx6 connects to your base or virtual reference network via UHF
radio, internal GSM cell modem, Carlson Listen-Listen or in Data Collector Internet
mode. While the BRx6 is typically configured through SurvCE or SurvPC, it contains a
built-in web UI used to control, manage, and upgrade the BRx6 with new firmware
and activations. BRx6 uses the powerful Athena RTK engine and is Atlas (L-band
satellite corrections) capable.
ATHENA RTK ENGINE
The BRx6 GNSS receiver uses Hemisphere’s Athena RTK (Real Time Kinematic)
technology to deliver state of the art precise RTK positions. The localized
corrections are processed on the rover to achieve superior accuracy and
BRx6 User Guide
2
repeatability. Performance testing has shown positioning accuracy at the
centimeter level.
Athena RTK has the following benefits:
·
Improved Initialization time - Performing initializations in less than 15 seconds at better
than 99.9% of the time
·
Robustness in difficult operating environments - Extremely high productivity under the most
aggressive of geographic and landscape oriented environments
·
Performance on long baselines - Industry-leading position stability for long baseline
applications
ATLAS L-BAND
The BRx6 uses Atlas L-band, Hemisphere's industry leading correction service to
achieve accurate positions anywhere in the world. With Atlas, the positioning
accuracy does not degrade as a function of distance to a base station, as the data
content is not composed of a single base station’s information, but an entire
network’s information.
Atlas L-band can be added as a subscription. Atlas L-Band has the following benefits:
·
Positioning accuracy - Competitive positioning accuracies down to 2 cm RMS in certain
applications
·
Positioning sustainability - Cutting edge position quality maintenance in the absence of
correction signals, using Hemisphere’s patented technology
·
Scalable service levels - Capable of providing virtually any accuracy, precision and
repeatability level in the 2 to 100 cm range
·
Convergence time - Industry-leading convergence times of 10-40 minutes
Atlas L-band is not currently supported in SurvCE 5.04. It may be supported in
subsequent releases of SurvCE.
If your BRx6 is equipped with a 400 MHz radio you may be required
to obtain a valid radio license for your jurisdiction.
aRTK POSITION AIDING
aRTK is an innovative feature available in the BRx6 GNSS receiver that mitigates
the impact of land-based communication instability. Powered by Hemisphere’s
Atlas L-band correction service, aRTK provides an additional layer of
communication redundancy to RTK users, assuring that productivity is not
impacted by intermittent data connectivity.
BRx6 receives the aRTK augmentation correction data over satellite, while also
simultaneously receiving the land-based RTK correction data. The BRx6 internally
operates with two sources of RTK correction, creating an additional layer of
correction redundancy compared to typical RTK systems. Once the satellite
BRx6 User Guide
3
correction data process is established (which takes as little as a few seconds), the
BRx6 will continue to generate accurate RTK positions if the land-based RTK
correction source becomes unavailable for a period of time.
SurvCE 5.04 does not currently support Atlas L-band or aRTK. These functions may
be supported in future releases of SurvCE. When aRTK is supported, it will always
be enabled in the BRx6 when using Carlson’s SurvCE and SurvPC data collection
software.
SUREFIX RTK POSITION
In order to provide high fidelity quality indicators to users, the BRx6 contains an
additional processor, the SureFix processor that runs in combination with the RTK
engine. The SureFix processor takes several inputs, such as GNSS data, data
preprocessing results and generated RTK solutions. The SureFix processor takes
all available information including GNSS data, Athena pre-processing results and
generated RTK solutions and by using functional and stochastic analysis methods
determines the quality of the current RTK engine solution. Only those positions
which have the highest quality are flagged as SureFix positions and are designed in
SurvCE and SurvPC as FIXED+ positions.
WHAT’S INCLUDED
The BRx6 is available as a single unit or two units (base/rover setup). Figure 1-1
shows the parts included in the single unit kit and Table 1-1 lists the parts included

INSTALLING/CONNECTING BRX6
INSTALLING BATTERIES
The BRx6 uses a single rechargeable Li-ion smart battery (11.1 V - 37.74 Wh). When
installing the battery, ensure the contact points are facing up towards the
“Carlson” logo. Slide the battery into the designated spot until the “battery tension
bar” clicks and locks the battery into place. The typical run time of a BRx6 battery is
4 – 5+ hours depending on the operating mode. The BRx6 kit provides two
batteries, as noted in the “What’s Included?” portion of this user guide.
Battery Tension Bar
Figure 2-2: Battery installation
To remove the battery, push the battery tension bar to the left. The battery
should pop out of the battery compartment. When swapping batteries in the
BRx6, it is recommended that the BRx6 be powered-down or turned off, the old
battery removed and the new battery inserted in the battery compartment, then
power up the BRx6.
The remaining charge level of a BRx6 battery can be tested by pressing the battery
icon on the right side of the battery. The charge level is indicated by the number
of LEDs lit on the back of the battery. Four LEDs indicate a charge level greater
than 75% (4+ hours of battery life), two LEDs indicate a charge level of around 50%
(approximately 2 hours of battery life). A depleted battery will display either one
flashing LED or no LEDs will be lit.

INSTALLING BRX6 ON A TRIBRACH
The BRx6 mounts flush to the tribrach, by securing the 5/8” metal mounting
portion of the BRx6 to the standard 5/8” male portion of the tribrach. Using
approximately 3-4 ft./ lbs. of torque, secure the BRx6 onto the mount in a
clockwise rotation.
Figure 2-5: Installing BRx6 on a Tribrach
QUICK RELEASE INSTALLATION AND OVERVIEW
The quick release attaches to the 5/8” bottom mounting portion of the BRx6. This
adapter then connects to the top of a pole mount or the top of the tribrach mount.
This design allows the BRx6 to be removed from either mounting point at the push
of a button.
Figure 2-6: Quick Release Adapter
BRx6 User Guide
10
INSTALLING THE ANTENNA ARM
The antenna arm is typically used when the BRx6 is configured as a base using the
internal UHF radio and mounted on a tripod. The antenna arm moves the UHF
antenna away from the BRx6 and has the UHF antenna pointing up as shown in
Figure 2.6.
Figure 2-7: BRx6 mounted on tribrach with UHF antenna arm
The BRx6 UHF antenna arm is found in each BRx6 receiver kit and consists of two
pieces, the antenna arm and the UHF antenna as show in Figure 2-7.
Figure 2-8: Antenna Arm kit
To install the antenna arm, place the end of the arm with the 5/8” hole over the
5/8” mounting screw on the tripod/tribrach/survey pole, making sure the TNC
connector on the end of the antenna arm is pointing up. Screw the BRx6 onto the
tripod/tribrach/survey pole. The BRx6 holds the antenna arm in place. Attach the
antenna arm’s gold SNA connector to the UHF connector on the BRx6. Now attach
the UHF antenna onto the TNC connector on the end of the antenna arm. The
installation should appear as shown in Figure 2-6 above.
BRx6 User Guide
11
INSTALLING THE BRX6 ON A RANGE POLE
Using the standard 5/8” mount on the bottom of the BRx6, you can secure the unit
to a field standard 5/8” range pole. The BRx6 should be placed carefully on the
range pole, to ensure cross-threading does not occur, while rotating the unit in a
clockwise direction. Apply approximately 3-4 ft/lbs. of torque to the unit.
Figure 2-9: Range Pole Installation
CONNECTING TO AN EXTERNAL POWER SOURCE
The BRx6 has two main power sources. The first being an internal, removable
battery which is described in the earlier portion of this chapter. The second source
of power is the external power cable. The external power cable consists of two
separate cables shown in Figure 2-9 that plug together using a two pin SAE
connector. The shorter cable has a 5-pin (Lemo) connector on one end that plugs into the
BRx6 and a 2-pin SAE connector on the other end. The longer cable has a 2-pin SAE connector
that plugs into the shorter connector on one end and two alligator clips on the other end for
connecting to any external 9 to 24 volt DC power source (for example, a sealed lead
acid motorcycle battery). Connecting external power maybe a reasonable solution
when setting up a permanent base or setting a long term base in a remote area.
BRx6 User Guide
12
Figure 2-10: External Power Connector
When connecting a BRx6 base to an external Satel or PacCrest UHF radio, the
short BRx6 power cable (PN: 8030.064.66) can be replaced with an accessory
cable that also connects to the external radio. When using a Satel radio, the BRx6
power cable to receiver and external Satel radio (PN: 8030.064.056) also has a
connector to the radio’s communication port. (Due to the design of the Satel
radio, a separate power cable is required). When using a PacCrest radio, the BRx6
power cable to receiver and external Pac Crest radio (PN:8030.064.046) provides
power to the radio and also connects to the radio’s communication port.
CONNECTING TO AN EXTERNAL DEVICE
The BRx6 kit comes with an external data cable (PN: 8030.064.026). This cable
(see Figure 2-10) has a 7-pin Lemo connector on one end, and both a DB-9 serial
connector and a full-size client USB connector on the other end. The 7-pin Lemo
connector plugs into the BRx6 and the USB or serial connector plugs into the
external device being connected.
Figure 2-11: External Device Connector
BRx6 User Guide
13
When the USB connector is plugged into a PC or laptop, the BRx6 appears as an
external memory device the same as if a thumb drive or USB memory stick was
plugged into the computer. If raw log files are stored on the BRx6’s internal
memory, File Explorer can be used to drag and drop the files from the BRx6 to
computer.
USING THE BRX6 FN AND
KEYS
The BRx6 menu and display can be navigated using the FN and Power ( ) keys on
the BRx6. The FN key allows you to scroll through each item on the device menu
display. The key acts as an enter key for selecting menu options. The key
also acts as a power key to turn the BRx6 ON and OFF (see the section below).

HOW TO DOWNLOAD STATIC DATA
You can download static data from the BRx6 using either the WebUI “Download”
tab and by a direct USB connection to your PC. Using the USB connection is
typically faster than using the WebUI, especially for large static log files.
When using the WebUI, tap the green “Download” button next to each file to
download one by one, or select multiple files and tap the green “Package” button to
package the selected files in the compressed “tar” format and download.
To download files using a USB connection to your PC, follow the procedure
described below.
1.
Turn off the receiver, then connect the cable with the USB connector to
the communication interface of the receiver (7-pin Lemo) port, and finally
insert the client USB connector into USB port on the PC. Turn the BRx6 back
on and a new removable drive will appear in on your PC. The drive will be
named “media”. The drive number will depend on your PC configuration
and other prompts as show below, may appear:
BRx6 User Guide

LIMITS ON WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied
warranties or conditions, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to Licensee. In that case, any
implied warranties or conditions which would then otherwise arise will be limited in duration to ninety
(90) days from the date of the license of the Software or the purchase of the Product. The warranties
given herein give Licensee specific legal rights and Licensee may have other rights which may vary from
jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
12
CHANGE TO WARRANTY. No employee or agent of Hemisphere is authorized to change the warranty
provided or the limitation or disclaimer of warranty provisions. All such changes will only be effective if
pursuant to a separate agreement signed by senior officers of the respective parties.
13
WARRANTY CLAIM. In the event Licensee has a warranty claim Licensee must first check for and install
all Updates that are made available. The warranty will not otherwise be honored. Proof of purchase
may be required. Hemisphere does not honor claims asserted after the end of the Warranty Period.

LICENSEE REMEDIES. In all cases which involve a failure of the Software to conform in any material
respect to the documentation during the Warranty Period or a breach of a warranty, Hemisphere's sole
obligation and liability, and Licensee's sole and exclusive remedy, is for Hemisphere, at Hemisphere's
option, to (a) repair the Software, (b) replace the Software with software conforming to the
documentation, or (c) if Hemisphere is unable, on a reasonable commercial basis, to repair the
Software or to replace the Software with conforming software within ninety (90) days, to terminate
this Agreement and thereafter Licensee shall cease using the Software. Hemisphere will also issue a
refund for the price paid by Licensee less an amount on account of amortization, calculated on a
straight-line basis over a deemed useful life of three (3) years.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL HEMISPHERE BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR INDIRECT DAMAGES INCLUDING ARISING IN RELATION TO
ANY LOSS OF DATA, INCOME, REVENUE, GOODWILL OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS EVEN IF HEMISPHERE
HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. FURTHER, IN NO EVENT WILL
HEMISPHERE'S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY HEREUNDER, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY
KIND, EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY LICENSEE TO HEMISPHERE TO PURCHASE THE PRODUCT.
THIS LIMITATION AND EXCLUSION APPLIES IRRESPECTIVE OF THE CAUSE OF ACTION, INCLUDING BUT
NOT LIMITED TO BREACH OF CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, TORT, BREACH OF
WARRANTY, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND WILL SURVIVE A
FUNDAMENTAL BREACH.

Licensee and Licensee may also have other legal rights which may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

parties have entered into this Agreement in reliance on the limited warranties, warranty disclaimers
and limitations of liability set forth herein, that the same reflect an agreed-to allocation of risk between
the parties (including the risk that a remedy may fail of its essential purpose and cause consequential

and acknowledges that Hemisphere would not have been able to sell the Product at the amount
charged on an economic basis without such limitations.

copyright or other intellectual property right by the Software or by its use, in accordance with this
Agreement and documentation, PROVIDED THAT: (a) Hemisphere has the right to assume full control
over any action, claim, demand or proceeding, (b) Licensee shall promptly notify Hemisphere of any
such action, claim, demand, or proceeding, and (c) Licensee shall give Hemisphere such reasonable
assistance and tangible material as is reasonably available to Licensee for the defense of the action,
claim, demand or proceeding. Licensee shall not settle or compromise any of same for which
Hemisphere has agreed to assume responsibility without Hemisphere's prior written consent. Licensee
may, at its sole cost and expense, retain separate counsel from the counsel utilized or retained by
Hemisphere.
19
INFRINGEMENT. If use of the Software may be enjoined due to a claim of infringement by a third party
then, at its sole discretion and expense, Hemisphere may do one of the following: (a) negotiate a
license or other agreement so that the Product is no longer subject to such a potential claim, (b) modify
the Product so that it becomes non- infringing, provided such modification can be accomplished
without materially affecting the performance and functionality of the Product, (c) replace the Software,
or the Product, with non-infringing software, or product, of equal or better performance and quality, or
(d) if none of the foregoing can be done on a commercially reasonable basis, terminate this license and
Licensee shall stop using the Product and Hemisphere shall refund the price paid by Licensee less an
amount on account of amortization, calculated on a straight-line basis over a deemed useful life of
three (3) years.
20
The foregoing sets out the entire liability of Hemisphere and the sole obligations of Hemisphere to
Licensee in respect of any claim that the Software or its use infringes any third party rights.
