Features and Benefits
Trimble SPS361 and SPS461 GPS Heading and Positioning Receivers
The Trimble® SPS361 and SPS461 GPS Heading and Positioning Receivers are modular, dual-antenna systems for marine construction and hydrographic survey. The receivers can partner with Trimbles HYDROpro software to provide the tools for precise placement of piles, bridges, caissons, offshore drilling rigs and coastal defenses - providing you with dredge head positioning; vessel positioning, vessel heading, and pitch or roll.
Both the SPS361 and SPS461 provide precise GPS heading. The Trimble SPS361 supports MSK Beacon. The SPS461 includes all the features of the SPS361 plus it's available with internal 450 or 900MHz radio and is upgradable to varying levels of positioning, including precision RTK.
Features and Benefits of the SPS361 and SPS461
The Trimble SPS361/461 GPS Heading Receivers offer numerous benefits for marine construction contractors, including:
- Rapid deployment, easy integration
- High-precision, dual-frequency GPS heading with fast initialization
- Data to easily determine the position of other sensors on a vessel (in partnership with Trimble HYDROpro)
- Support for a range of correction services to provide the position accuracy you need
As one-receiver systems the Trimble SPS361 and SPS461 are cost-effective and ideal for either permanent or temporary installation. Both receivers employ dual-frequency antennas for enhanced performance over single-frequency antenna solutions—Trimble offers a range of antennas to suit each marine customer's application needs.
The Trimble® SPS361/SPS461 is supported by HYDROpro marine construction software or can be easily integrated into any OEM solution via standard NMEA data output.
The Trimble SPS361 and SPS461 GPS Heading and Positioning Receivers partner with Trimble HYDROpro software to provide the tools for dredge head positioning, vessel positioning, vessel heading, and pitch or roll.
They also support:
- Precise placement of structures such as breakwaters, bridges, caissons, piles, marina piers and coastal defenses
- Dredge vessel positioning
- Positioning and tracking of barges, tugs and other construction vessels
- Offshore rig positioning and anchor handling applications
- Hydrographic surveys for applications such as channel maintenance, dredging progress, environmental surveys, and bed erosion
