New high-precision clever antennas for sturdy efficiency in tough environments – in GNSS
Trimble has introduced two new GNSS smart antennas, the AX940 and AX940i, designed for a wide range of high-precision applications such as precision agriculture, construction milling machines, forest harvesters, autonomous vehicles, port automation and mobile mapping. The AX940i also has built-in inertia sensors for tight integration with a positioning and orientation motor.
With the support of GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS, and NavIC with multiple frequencies and multiple constellations, the antennas can provide reliable accuracy at the centimeter level in a variety of environments. In addition, the Trimble AX940 and AX940i provide reliable, high-precision positioning without the limitations of a local base station or cell modem using Trimble RTX correction services.
The AX940i’s built-in inertial sensors allow tight integration with GNSS observations into the RTK / RTX positioning and orientation engine and provide continuous, high-rate, low-latency output to guidance and control systems.
The Trimble AX940 and AX940i offer flexible interfaces for fast data transfer and configuration. simplified integrations shorten development times; An intuitive 3D graphical webpage allows easy input of the lever arm for easier setup.
The fully featured smart antennas are equipped with 336 channels to support multiple constellations, Trimble RTX and OmniSTAR support, flexible RS232, USB, CAN and Ethernet interfaces, and advanced monitoring of the RF spectrum. The AX940i also has WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity for wireless interface and control.
Using Trimble Maxwell 7 technology, the AX940 and AX940i are equipped with flexible signal management that enables the use of all available GNSS constellations and signals.
“The new AX family of intelligent antennas offers the latest GNSS and inertial technology in an easy-to-integrate and robust form factor,” said Thomas Utzmeier, general manager of Trimble OEM GNSS. “The intelligent antennas are reliable, robust and compact and an ideal option for OEMs and system integrators to add high-precision positioning to their applications quickly and easily.”
The Trimble AX940 and AX940i smart antennas are available immediately.
