Rugged Dual-Antenna GPS Receiver for Precise Heading and Position
The Trimble MS860 receiver is a 36-channel L1/L2 RTK GPS receiver with dual-antenna input that provides precise position, heading and speed of a dynamic platform. This rugged, dual-antenna receiver addresses a vast range of precise navigation applications in the fields of construction, dredging, marine survey, commercial marine, and general machine guidance.
The MS860 receiver uses Trimble's Moving Baseline RTK technique for precise heading without the need for external differential GPS corrections.
The MS860 receiver delivers positions up to 20 times per second with a latency of less than 20 milliseconds. This responsiveness is matched with horizontal accuracies of 20 mm and vertical accuracies of 30 mm.
Heading accuracies of 0.03° RMS can be achieved at 10 times per second. Heading is calculated using the Moving Baseline RTK technique. This allows the quoted heading accuracies to be obtained without the need for external differential GPS corrections. Designed for use in a high-speed, dynamic environment, the MS860 receiver offers accurate heading at rates of turn in excess of 90°/sec.
The MS860 is programmed with a single command or configured using Microsoft Windows-based Configuration Toolbox software. The system can receive RTCM SC-104 differential GPS corrections and includes support for the Controller Area Network (CAN) standard used by the automotive and construction industries to control and monitor electronic subsystems.
The MS860 is one of the Trimble MS Series receivers. These receivers share a common platform—this allows you to choose products suitable for your applications without having to redevelop software interfaces.
