The MB800 has reached End of Life (EOL). Trimble has identified the MB-Two as a suitable replacement product for the MB800.



Ashtech’s MB800 is a multi-constellation, multi-frequency board that is especially created to augment RTK presence and safeguard data integrity. Equipped with Z-Blade technology, which makes equal use of all GNSS signals, it provides outstanding performance and new way of procuring several GNSS constellations for surveying tasks and extremely accurate positioning data.

The MB800 is designed to replace the MB500 unit as a drop-in module to provide enhanced features, a number of data formats, and communicated messages. It functions as a rover as well as a base. To meet specific customer requirements, several GNSS modes are available. These are switched into action by means of optional firmware.

Advanced multi-path rejection and signal tracking ensure utmost data reliability. Centimeter accuracy is obtained over long distances.

MB800 supports upgraded RTK functions. These include RTK network with mediator corrections, RTK against moving or static base for corresponding positioning, and pitch/roll/heading measurements. Dual RTK engine automatically chooses the most suitable position available.
