Compared to traditional GIS products, the S580 is a high-precision, intelligent data acquisition receiver, that can be worn or attached to the pole, offering greater freedom of movement and flexibility. The S580 can communicate with an external device such as a tablet, smartphone or PC via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Using the internal web interface, or through the Cube-connector APP, the receiver can be configured and prepared to receive RTK differential corrections and ready to be connected to any survey or GIS software. The rubber protection cover, increase device protection, non-slip and no damage, the whole device protection class reaches IP67, and resists 1.2m drops on hard surfaces.
The S580 was designed as an RTK rover receiver to receive differential corrections from the Network. However, thanks to the external Stonex SR02 radio, the receiver can also receive RTK corrections, from a base that transmits them via UHF radio modem, in the 410-470 MHz frequencies.
The SR02 external radio receives corrections from the base station and transmits them to the S580 via Bluetooth. This feature allows the S580 receiver to receive (and transmit) RTK corrections and with this capability, the receiver can be used as base and/or as rover. This configuration is an excellent and complete low-cost solution.
