LEA-6N supports GPS and GLONASS positioning required by M2M applications in Russia


The LEA-6N  (17.0 x 22.4 x 2.4 mm) supports all available satellite positioning systemsThalwil, Switzerland – April 2, 2012 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), the Swiss positioning and wireless module and chip company, announces an all-in-one satellite positioning receiver module, the LEA-6N. The low-power, cost-effective module delivers fast, high-accuracy positioning and is targeted at industrial telematics applications in Russia such as vehicle tracking, mobile resource management and the ERA-GLONASS emergency call system.

The module works with GPS, Russian GLONASS, and Japanese QZSS satellite positioning systems. It also supports all civilian Satellite Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS).

“The LEA-6N delivers clear new benefits for our industrial customers in terms of global support of all available satellite positioning systems, easy to mount LCC form factor, low power consumption and cost effectiveness” said Thomas Nigg, VP Product Marketing at u-blox, “LEA-6N will also support our CellLocate hybrid indoor positioning system; when used together with our wireless modules, the location of valuable assets or people can be determined anywhere, indoors and outside.”

Samples of LEA-6N are available mid-April 2012, with evaluation kit EVK-6N and mass production in June 2012. For more information, contact the u-blox office nearest you, or meet us at Machine to Machine 2012 stand E21 during April 3-5 in Paris.

Reston, VA and Fredonia, PA, USA - Feb. 7, 2012 - u-blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company, has been chosen as the GPS technology provider for Grace Industries, a manufacturer of mission-critical personal safety devices. Grace’s latest intrinsically-safe personal tracker, the SuperCell® SC500-GPS, relies on u-blox 6 GPS technology to report critical location data of remote workers.

 

Text Box: The SuperCell® SC500-GPS is an intrinsically safe personal tracker ideal for workers in flammable environmentsSuperCell® SC500-GPS is a networked, motion-sensing, two-way emergency radio device with automatic “man-down” alarm. The device is used in critical safety applications where a worker’s location and safety status needs continuous monitoring. With its intrinsically safe, ignition-proof design, the device is of particular interest to the oil and gas industry, as well as railroad and trucking companies handling hazardous or highly flammable materials.

 

“After careful analysis and rigorous testing, Grace chose u-blox GPS because of its high performance, reliability, and quality”, said Bob Campman, Vice President at Grace. “SuperCell SC500-GPS provides the ultimate level of confidence for companies with mobile workers in remote or hazardous locations, where safety and location can be monitored simultaneously”.

 

“Grace’s selection of u-blox GPS technology is a testimonial to the superiority of our products”, said Nikolaos Papadopoulos, President of u-blox America. “With the SC500-GPS, tasks such as aircraft fuelling or gas pipeline repairs can now be performed safely while offering companies peace of mind and better insurance terms.”
