The RTK Surveyor was created to do business with inexpensive, off the rack equipment. Right here we’ll explain just how to build a Rover and Base.
Shown here’s the typical RTK Rover setup. A monopole created for digital cameras can be used. A mobile phone owner try clamped toward monopod and the RTK Surveyor is mounted. The ?” cam bond with the monopole is modified to ?” 11-TPI and a L1/L2 antenna are connected. A Male TNC to Male SMA cable connects the antenna to the RTK Surveyor. No broadcast is needed because RTCM correction information is provided by a cell phone over Bluetooth.
We have completed a lot of evaluation together with the u-blox L1/L2 antenna and it’s excellent for all the rates and proportions. Mounted to a ground dish you’re getting good results. It’s just slightly ungainly when installed to the top of a monopole. We recommend the ‘ufo’ style L1/L2 antennas simply because they posses a more substantial antenna element and a somewhat big soil airplanes than the u-blox antenna.
If you’re shopping for a monopole (aka monopod), buy one that’s 65” in total or better to make sure that the antenna can be above your head. We’ve have best of luck with all the Amazon Essentials brand name.
We strongly suggest against utilizing a rigid helical antenna arrangement as found below. The RTK Surveyor just isn’t designed for this type of configurations might lead to permanent injury to the antenna connector. (más…)
