SXBlue Platinum

Quick start guide -

Powered by its 394 channels, the SXblue Platinum uses all-in-view constellations with triple frequency and it offers the ability to use a global or local coverage of corrections (SBAS, L-Band and RTK).

The new receiver is the same, compact, lightweight, palm-sized unit as the SXblue product series, which is completely dustproof and ruggedized. The internal, rechargeable, field replaceable Li-Ion battery has on-board LEDs for easy access battery life information.

With the scalable SXblue Platinum Basic, the user can activate at anytime any frequency or constellation after its initial purchase. The receiver is also field upgradable which, means that you can activate these options remotely at your convenience.

Atlas delivers its correction signals via L-band or it can stream data over the internet (NTRIP) at accuracies ranging from meter to subdecimeters levels ensuring the best available vertical and horizontal accuracy.

With a wide variety of compatible software and mobile devices, our team can help you choose the perfect solution for your applications such as agriculture, engineering, mining, utilities, surveying, GIS...

Some of the many compatible softwares such as ESRI Collector, ArcPad, Fulcrum, TerraGo Edge, and MicroSurvey FieldGenius and many others.

iSXBlue RTN, a free iOS application for NTRIP/DIP configuration, is available on the App Store.
