Crescent® Vector™ H200 Board
key features
Next Generation, High Performance GNSS Module
• Extremely accurate heading with short baselines
• L1 GPS/GLONASS RTK capable
• L-Band capable (LX-2 module required)
• Fast RTK acquisition and reacquisition times
• Excellent coasting performance
• 10 cm heave accuracy with RTK
• Strong multipath mitigation and interference rejection
The Crescent® Vector™ H200™ GNSS module is the next generation,
single frequency, high-performance GNSS heading, positioning, and
attitude module available on the market from Hemisphere GNSS.
The Vector H200 GNSS module provides integrators with an
opportunity for developing sophisticated marine, navigation, and
land applications in challenging, dynamic environments. The H200
module uses Hemisphere GNSS’ advancements in Vector technology;
advanced multipath mitigation techniques and Hemisphere GNSS’
patented Multifunction Application.
Vector H200 is capable of providing heading of 0.04° with a 5 meter
antenna baseline and either RTK1, L-Band1, or SBAS positioning
depending on your location requirements.
Integrate the robust Vector H200 module into your applications
to experience exceptional heading, positioning, and attitude
performance within a compact size. Diversity and cost savings makes
it an ideal part of your solution for system integrators.
