CHC i80 GNSS Receiver
The i80 represents the pinnacle of productivity on today’s jobsite. The i80 is the smallest receiver on the market incorporating dual hot swappable batteries, allowing continuous uninterrupted work. All these features integrated into a small ergonomic package results in the most productive day of surveying possible.
- Light & ultrarugged eliminates user fatigue
- Tilt & azimuth allow for more shots to be collected using RTK
- Advanced connectivity integrates into any process with nearly any hardware
- Common work flows without a data collector
- Future proof design for years of productivity
The i80 represents the pinnacle of productivity on today’s jobsite. Leading technology with superior capabilities, the i80 has tracks all five constellations, ten frequencies, and uses every connectivity method available. The i80 is the smallest receiver on the market incorporating dual hot swappable batteries, allowing continuous uninterrupted work. All these features integrated into a small ergonomic package results in the most productive day of surveying possible.
The CHC i80 provides numerous communication methods to support varied workflows and any peripheral device. The builtin modem provides RTK corrections and serves data via 802.11 WiFi to nearby devices. The hotspot feature also allows for connectivity and configuration via any browser supported device which removes the classical limitation of expensive propriety data collection devices for hardware setup. CHC’s superior UHF radio technology provides users with a 25% range increaseeven when mixing and matching with non CHC radios.
Out of Plumb Measurements
The internal MEMS measures and compensates for tilt in all axis and acceleration over 100x per second providing cm positions up to an unmatched 30 degree tilt. With the advanced MEMS, users no longer need to take their eyes off their software as the electronic bubble and orientation values are automatically displayed onscreen.
True Autonomous Operation
The user friendly LCD interface allows for numerous receiver setup tasks to be performed without an external device. Operations such as: Static Logging, AutoBase, AutoRover, UHF configuration, and GSM setup can be easily done via the simple Function/Accept button pair. Unique to CHC receivers is its ability to be used with APIS which allows an AutoBase receiver to automatically join a pool of online bases that rovers can automatically connect to for quick and easy “1 to 1″, or “1 to many” configurations.
CHC continues to build on it’s reputation of rugged and reliable. The i80 is constructed of a cast magnesium chassis, doubled sealed gaskets, protected connectors, and vibration dampened internals. This contributes to itsâ€™ outstanding field survivability of IP67 and ability to resist extended periods of high vibration to MILSTD810F.
Never will you be locked into a fixed software & hardware solution. The CHC i80 receiver is supported by multiple third party software controller programs. The i80 supports common industry standards and proprietary protocols allowing you to easily migrate your inventory to our more productive and open platform.
