Satellite receiver product line is based on u-blox’ GLONASS chipset

NL-662U USB based receiver is equipped with a u-blox GLONASS chipsetThalwil, Switzerland and Berlin, Germany – July 3, 2012 – Navilock, a trademark of Tragant Handels- und Beteiligungs GmbH, announces a new family of GLONASS receiver products including the NL-662U USB based receiver (pictured left), equipped with a u-blox GLONASS chipset.

Since the end of 2011 the Russian satellite navigation system GLONASS has been available worldwide. Similar in functionality to the US-NAVSTAR GPS system, GLONASS satellites transmit positioning data over distinct frequencies (Frequency Division Multiple Access, or FDMA, versus GPS which uses Code Division Multiple Access, or CDMA).

The new GLONASS receiver products have internal patch antenna in various configurations to serve different installation requirements. Four housing variants with USB or serial MD6/TTL interfaces are available for installation on vehicles or boats.

The u-blox GLONASS chipset features high accuracy to support precision location-based applications such as navigation, datalogging or tracking.

The products provide -158 dBm signal sensitivity with extremely low power consumption to insure reliable performance and long battery life. The u-blox GLONASS chipset facilitates hot starts in less than 3 seconds.

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.”
