Trimble R12i GNSS receiver incorporates tilt compensation

Press Release 1 Sep - 12:33 SAST

Information from Trimble

Introduced today, the Trimble R12i GNSS receiver is the latest addition to the company’s global navigation satellite system (GNSS) portfolio. The receiver incorporates inertial measurement unit (IMU)-based tilt compensation using Trimble TIP technology, which enables points to be measured or staked out while the survey rod is tilted.

The tilt compensation capability builds on the company’s ProPoint GNSS positioning engine, which offers flexible signal management that enables the use of all available GNSS constellations and signals. In addition, the engine enables new TIP technology. The company’s TIP technology allows users to mark and measure points in areas previously inaccessible for GNSS rovers such as building corners, or in hazardous situations, for example the edge of an open excavation.

The receiver operates calibration-free out of the box and is resistant to magnetic interference from sources such as cars or electrical utility boxes. The R12i’s real time automatic inertial navigation system (INS) integrity monitoring can detect and correct for IMU biases introduced by use over time, temperature or physical shocks, helping ensure measurement quality and integrity for the life of the receiver.

The Trimble R12i GNSS System is available through Trimble’s Geospatial distribution channel.
