Septentrio, a leader in high-precision global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning solutions, has recently announced an expansion of its GPS/GNSS* original equipment manufacturer (OEM) portfolio with AsteRx-m3 product family. AsteRx-m3 receivers target various use cases and offer flexibility and affordability with no compromises of performance. They feature the lowest power consumption on the market, allowing longer operation times. Their new easy-to-integrate design ensures short set-up times and faster time-to-market.
“With the AsteRx-m3 product family, Septentrio redefines state-of-the-art GNSS positioning performance,” commented Danilo Sabbatini, Product Manager at Septentrio. “It was a challenge to design a product that delivers multi-frequency and multi-constellation positioning, combined with Septentrio’s renowned GNSS+ technology while optimising power. The AsteRx-m3product not only excels in this but does so at a reduced cost.”
All AsteRx-m3 products represent the next generation of technology in the GNSS OEM market, delivering centimetre-level accuracy, availability and reliability in a credit-card sized board. The new product family includes 3 types of GNSS OEM boards. AsteRx-m3 Pro is the rover receiver** tracking signals from all available GNSS constellations on three frequencies. Simple and powerful, it operates both in single and dual antenna modes. The AsteRx-m3 ProBase is a product designed to operate as a reference station for RTK and PPP-RTK networks. It can be used as a base station or for network densification. Last is the AsteRx-m3 Pro+, the full-feature OEM receiver board flexible enough to fit into any application and to be used either as a rover or a base station in a single or a dual antenna mode. By offering its next-generation GNSS technology in a diversity of products Septentrio aims to improve customer experience while optimising prices.
*Global navigation satellite system including the American GPS, European Galileo, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou, Japan’s QZSS and India’s NavIC. These satellite constellations broadcast positioning information to receivers which use it to calculate their absolute position.
** A rover receiver, unlike a base station, is a receiver on the move. This type of receiver calculates its position with centimetre-level accuracy by analysing signals from various GNSS satellites and by using correction information from base station receivers.
