LIVERMORE, Calif. – March 17, 2011 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduces its patented Fence AntennaTM technology and expanded channel support in the new GR-5 GNSS receiver. The GR-5 provides industry-leading tracking sensitivity and multipath rejection in a compact and lightweight package.
In 2006, Topcon introduced the GR-3 GNSS receiver, which made the term “precise positioning” commonplace, and set the global standard for satellite signal reception and job site accuracy. The arrival of the GR-5 raises the bar again: the best just got better.
Ray O’Connor, president and CEO of TPS, said, “Topcon’s innovative Universal Signal Tracking and patented antenna technologies are the foundation of the new GR-5. With 216 channels and multi-constellation tracking, the GR-5 guarantees that an investment in Topcon’s industry-leading technology today will pay dividends into the foreseeable future.”
