WESTMINSTER, Colo., Dec. 30, 2008 — Spectra Precision introduced the EPOCH 35 GNSS system. The Spectra Precision EPOCH 35 system uses accurate GPS and GLONASS technology for cadastral, topographic, control, stakeout and other precision survey applications.
The EPOCH 35 is a complete GNSS system that includes a base, rover, field software, data collector, and radio. The system rover features integrated Bluetooth capability, an internal radio modem and battery. In North America, the system operates with the popular TDS Survey Pro field software. Outside the U.S., the system runs Spectra Precision Field Surveyor. These field software solutions operate on the Spectra Precision Recon or Nomad data collectors.
For RTK surveying, the base system may include a choice of radio modems that provide either a long- or short-range data link from the base to the rover. In addition, Network RTK is also supported by simply connecting to an external data capable cellular modem. Back at the office, surveyors can use the Spectra Precision Office Software for post-processing and quality control.
“The EPOCH 35 GNSS is an easy-to-use, yet powerful solution for everyday surveying applications,” said Frank Dorenkamp, general manager of Spectra Precision. “The new GPS plus GLONASS solution reinforces our commitment to create an outstanding product portfolio to meet the needs of our customers.”
The system operates without line-of-sight between points, and can be used in any weather. Designed as a multi-purpose, integrated system, the EPOCH 35 GNSS system provides surveyors with total flexibility. Built especially for tough surveying conditions, the compact and lightweight EPOCH 35 GNSS system can handle drops, extreme temperatures, dirt, and water.
