Stonex S980A GNSS RTK Receiver

Manufacturer: | Category:

The Stonex S980A GNSS RTK receiver has reached End of Life (EOL). Stonex recommends the Stonex S980+ GNSS RTK receiver as a suitable replacement.



The Stonex S980A GNSS RTK receiver, with an integrated Hemisphere GNSS Phantom 40 GNSS board, has 800 channels and tracks all the present constellations and satellite signals (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS & IRNSS). All GNSS signals are included at no additional cost.

Through the 4G GSM modem, a fast internet connection is guaranteed and the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules allow for reliable data flow to the controller. These features combined with the integrated 2-5 watt radio make the S980A the perfect base station receiver.

The color touch display and the possibility of connecting an external antenna makes the S980A an extremely effective receiver for every type of job. The S980A is also equipped with an E-Bubble and the optional IMU technology: fast initialization, up to 60° inclination.

The S980A has a 1PPS port which can be used in applications that require precise synchronization time to ensure that multiple instruments work together or that use the same parameters for system integration based on precise time.
