Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The ABX800 has reached End of Life (EOL). Trimble has identified the ABX-Two as a suitable replacement product for the ABX800.



Ashtech’s ABX800 is one in a series of professional GNSS sensors designed for absolute-accuracy, general-purpose, real-time positioning uses. The unit comes in a small, robust, lightweight, weatherproof case. It houses one GNSS MB800 board.

The ABX800 is built for easy integration into OEM applications where centimeter-level accuracy is required. It has a power supply that increases the input voltage range from 9 to 36 V DC. All the while, it retains low power consumption even though the amount of power input voltage may fluctuate.

The ABX800 is designed for operation in the field under unfriendly conditions. Due to the small footprint needed for installation and its light weight, the unit is well suited to airborne uses, where weight is at a premium.

This smart receiver has at its core a single- or dual-frequency GLONASS/GPS/SBAS MB800 board, recently introduced to the market. It is equipped with AshTech’s Z-Blade technology, which accounts for its high-quality performance. The ABX800 is low-cost choice for heading plus pitch/roll applications and DGPS/SBAS positioning.
