1
Precision and performance values assume a minimum of 9-satellites in multipath clear, EMI free, obstruction free environment with reasonable atmospheric conditions and satellite geometry. Network based solutions based on shortest actual baseline. Post-processed accuracy is dependent on baseline length and time-on-point, 24-hour observations may be required. Stable mounts and generally accepted survey practices are required for the highest order survey results.
2 Battery life varies with temperature and battery age. An external power source is recommended for static occupations lasting longer than 8-hours and base operation longer than 4 hours. Elevated and extreme cold working or storage temperatures (> 85F, <-20F) hasten capacity loss.
3 Assuming 14-tracked satellites.
4 Initialization times assume reasonable baseline, constellation and number of SVs in a multipath and obstruction clear environment.
5 Price includes Ground Shipping to most USA address.
6 There is no public GLONASS L3 CDMA ICD, receiver is not guaranteed to be fully compliant with this signal.
