Vector V500 GNSS Compass Smart Antenna

Vector V500 GNSS Compass Smart Antenna

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



The Vector V500 GNSS Compass Smart Antenna from Hemisphere supports multi-frequency GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, and IRNSS (with future firmware upgrade and activation) for simultaneous satellite tracking. The V500 is powered by Hemisphere’s innovative and industry-leading Athena RTK engine and is Atlas L-band capable.

Using Hemisphere’s Eclipse Vector technology, the all-in-one V500 is a complete compass system that offers GNSS-based heading, pitch, roll, heave, and RTK positioning. The V500 introduces support for Ethernet, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi in addition to NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 and offers unmatched ease of installation. Purpose-built for challenging applications, the V500’s rugged enclosure works reliably in harsh environments and is ideal for professional marine applications requiring high-precision heading combined with RTK or Atlas positioning.

The V500 is Hemisphere’s flagship rugged smart antenna, which combines the recently announced Eclipse Vector H328 OEM board with two superior multipath- and noise-rejecting antennas (spaced 50 cm apart) 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 V500 delivers 0.17 degree heading accuracy along with RTK positioning and Atlas L-band accuracies of up to 8 cm (95%)*, providing class-leading accuracy.
