Stonex S980 GNSS Base Station Receiver

Stonex S980 GNSS Base Station Receiver

Manufacturer: | Categories: ,

The Stonex S980 has reached End of Life (EOL). Stonex has replaced the S980 with the S980A as an upgrade to the original.



The Stonex S980 integrated GNSS base station receiver is a compact, high-performance GNSS receiver with 555 channels that incorporates the NovAtel OEM729 board and tracks all the present constellations and satellite signals (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS & IRNSS). All GNSS signals are included at no additional cost.

A fast internet connection is guaranteed through the 4G GSM modem while the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules allow reliable data flow to the controller. These features combined with the integrated 2-5 watt radio make the S980 the perfect base station receiver.

The color touch display and the possibility of connecting an external antenna makes the S980 an extremely effective receiver for every type of job.

The S980 is also equipped with an E-Bubble and the optional IMU technology: fast initialization, up to 60& inclination. The 1PPS port can be used in applications that require precise synchronization time to ensure that multiple instruments work together or use the same parameters for system integration based on precise time.
