The BRx6 provides robust performance and high precision in a compact and rugged package. With multiple wireless communications ports and an open GNSS interface, the BRx6 can be used as a precise base station or as a lightweight and easy-to-use rover. The Carlson BRx6 GNSS receiver is designed to work seamlessly with most data collectors including Carlson’s rugged and popular data collectors: the Carlson Surveyor2, the Carlson MINI2, the FZ-M1 Tablet, and the Carlson RT3. Designed for use by surveyors, contractors, builders, engineers and many others, the BRx6 can be purchased as either a Rover or as a Base/Rover package. The Base/Rover package includes two BRx6 GNSS receivers, two hard-sided carrying cases, four BRx6 batteries with two chargers, one GPS tribrach and one tribrach adapter, and two Carlson GPS receiver poles.

GNSS Technology
The BRx6 features the modern AthenaTM GNSS RTK engine, designed with an architecture to accommodate the multiple frequencies from current satellite constellations. Users will experience fast initialization to RTK, as well as more robust performance from reception of multiple GNSS satellite constellations. The powerful and lightweight BRx6 receiver may be used as a Base or Rover.

Wireless Options
The BRx6 has an integrated UHF transceiver and a Quad-Band GSM modem for differential corrections, together with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Base or Rover configuration is user selectable with the UHF transceiver or GSM Modem for independent RTK operations. Carlson’s Listen-Listen service allows Base/Rover operation via the cellular modem. For RTK networks, the BRx6 can connect to a server with the integrated GSM modem for worldwide operation. The BRx6 also has Atlas L-Band corrections for Precise Point Positioning for a third correction option with subscription. In addition, SurvCE/SurvPC provides the option to utilize the cellular modem or Wi-Fi in the handheld computer via the Data Collector Internet feature.

Carlson’s SurvCE/SurvPC allows users to continue operations with the familiar application software. SurvCE/SurvPC has full BRx6 configuration, system status and data logging directly from the handheld computer via Bluetooth. For improved Quality Control and efficiency, SurvCE/SurvPC features an intuitive Live Digital Level with an auto record option when the BRx6 is level. With SurvCE/SurvPC, users continue to have the direct attention of Carlson’s software team to support and expand features for quality and productivity.
