Spectra Geospatial SP85 GNSS Receiver

The SP85 is a next generation GNSS receiver that combines decades of GNSS RTK technology with revolutionary new GNSS processing. Featuring the new 600-channel “7G” chipset combined with the patented Z-Blade™ technology, the SP85 system is optimized for tracking and processing signals from all GNSS constellations in challenging environments.

Product Details

Unique 7G GNSS-Centric Technology: Patented Z-Blade processing technology running on a next generation Spectra Geospatial 600-channel 7G ASIC fully utilizes all 6 GNSS systems: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, IRNSS and SBAS, in addition to MSS corrections delivered via L-band. Unlike GPS-centric technology which requires a minimum number of GPS satellites for GNSS processing, Z-Blade™ unique GNSScentric capability optimally combines GNSS signals without dependency on any specific GNSS system.

SMS and Email Messaging: SP85 has a unique combination of communication technologies including an integrated 3.5G GSM/UMTS modem, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and optional internal UHF transmit radio, providing unmatched connectivity for the user. SP85 can use all available RTK correction sources and connect to the Internet from the field using WiFi hotspots, where available. The internal UHF transmit/receive radio allows for quick and easy setup as a local base station. This saves time and increases the surveyor’s efficiency, allowing for more productive workflows.

Anti-Theft Protection: A unique anti-theft technology secures the SP85 receiver when installed as a field base station in remote or public areas and can detect if the receiver has been disturbed, moved, or stolen. This technology allows the surveyor to lock the device to a specific location and make it unusable if the device is moved elsewhere. In this case, the SP85 receiver will generate an audio alert and show an alert message on its display.

Reliable Design for the Field Use: The SP85’s rugged housing, created by Spectra Geospatial‘s engineering design lab in France, incorporates a host of practical innovations. Dual hot-swappable batteries can be easily exchanged in the field as a one hand operation for an interruption-free working day, ensuring surveyors remain productive until the job is done. The impact-resistant fiberglass reinforced casing, designed to withstand 2 meter pole drops and waterproof to IP67, ensures that SP85 can handle the toughest outdoor conditions.

The Spectra Geospatial Experience: With the most advanced and rugged field data collectors from Spectra Geospatial, surveyors get maximum productivity and reliability every day. Spectra Geospatial Survey Pro software is specifically tailored for the SP85 GNSS receiver providing easyto-use, yet powerful GNSS workflows, letting the surveyor concentrate on getting the job done. Spectra Geospatial Survey Office Software provides a complete office suite for post-processing GNSS data and adjusting survey data, as well as exporting the processed results directly back to the field or to engineering design software packages. Combined with Spectra Geospatial field and office software, SP85 is an extremely powerful and complete solution.
