(Norcross, GA October 2011) – The Leica GR25 GNSS Reference Server is more than just a reference receiver. With integrated internal and external device management, multi-user management, high end security, modular and scalable design, the GR25 GNSS Reference Server will grow with users’ needs and keep their GNSS applications and networks fully up to date. The newest member of Leica Geosystems’ trusted GNSS Spider family is designed for numerous permanent and semi-permanent GNSS network installations and monitoring applications. The GR25 is ideal for RTK and static networks, single base station, field campaigns, structural monitoring, atmospheric and seismic studies and offshore positioning.
Integrated System: Powerful and Highly-versatile for All Use Cases
Designed to withstand the most demanding environments the Leica GR25 provides a fully ruggedized IP67 housing. It allows easy and professional installation, with well-spaced ruggedized connectors, including a ruggedized Ethernet port. A built-in display and keypad allows configuring and performing basic setups and operations without the need of a controller or PC. Using your LAN DHCP services and the GR25 optional 19” rack mount, this is a truly “Plug and Play” GNSS receiver.
Its Intelligent Power Management has four configurable power sources including two external inputs, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a removable internal battery with charger that can provide up to 20 hours of data logging backup. The integrated slot in communications port and device management allow communication backup without the need of an external UPS for up to 16 hours with GPRS/UMTS.
The new Leica RefWorx Onboard Software with a built-in web interface allows the system to be configured via Internet (LAN, WLAN, GPRS, UMTS), USB and Bluetooth. It supports 28 languages and all common web browsers.
The Leica GR25 provides flexible data management with the best choice of storage options. Many years of data can be stored on the removable SD card (up to 32GB) or on an external USB disk. Independently create up 10 mixed loggings sessions (MDB, RINEXv2 and v3, Hatanaka) and push them to a variety of FTP locations.
Secure and Reliable Operation
A built in Firewall, default closed ports, comprehensive user administration and detailed event log (including communications) allow secure system administration of the GR25 Reference Server and Services.
Due to its open design the GR25 Reference Server can be used with many Network RTK software suites using either proprietary or standard common formats. Simple Network Management Protocol support allows the GR25 Reference Server to be easily integrated into existing IT service monitoring applications.
GNSS Modernization – Future Proof Design
As with all Leica GNSS receivers, the GR25 supports a variety of GNSS signals including L1, L2, L5 and supports Galileo tracking including AltBOC.
The Leica GR25 is available as of 25 October 2011. For more information please contact your Leica Geosystems sales representative. http://www.leica-geosystems.us/en/Local-Sales-Reps-and-Distributors_42123.htm
