Vector V500 GNSS Compass Smart Antenna

Vector V500 GNSS Compass Smart Antenna

The Vector V500 GNSS compass smart antenna from Hemisphere is an all-in-one multi-frequency, multi-GNSS smart antenna which provides precise heading and RTK-level position.



The Vector V500 GNSS compass smart antenna from Hemisphere supports multi-frequency GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, IRNSS and QZSS for simultaneous satellite tracking. The Vector V500 is Atlas L-band capable and is powered by Hemisphere’s Athena RTK engine.

The all-in-one Vector V500 is a complete compass system that offers GNSS-based RTK positioning, heading, heave, pitch and roll. The Vector V500 introduces support for Ethernet, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi in addition to NMEA 0183/2000. Built with a rugged design, the Vector V500’s rugged enclosure works reliably in harsh environments and is ideal for professional marine applications.

The Vector V500 combines the Eclipse Vector H328 OEM board with two superior multipath- and noise-rejecting antennas in a single enclosure. Requiring only a single power/data cable connection, this allows for fast and reliable installations, even in the presence of strong radio transmissions. The Vector V500 delivers 0.17 ° heading accuracy along with RTK positioning and Atlas L-band accuracy of up to 8 cm (95%). It is also capable of providing reliable < 1° per minute heading for up to 3 minutes after loss of GNSS occurs.
