The HDS800 is the ideal tool for many types of applications. Bathymetry, dredging or coastal works are some of the Marine applications, while guidance/control requiring RTK + Heading measurements are appropriate for Machine Control. The HDS800 boosts levels of performance ahead of the most sophisticated equipment available today. Thanks to its unique design, it can also easily be carried from site to site.
The HDS800 embeds Ashtech Z-Blade Technology, a new GNSS centric signal processing technology that optimally processes all of the available satellite signals, maximizing your ability to obtain reliable GNSS Position and Heading in the widest variety of conditions. Z-Blade allows you to get and/or maintain RTK + Heading solutions even if GPS coverage is insufficient.
The innovative design integrates all the communication components (GSM/GPRS and/or UHF radios) offering an all-in-one robust solution to the user. The weatherproof, high-impact-resistant molded aluminum housing, the floating power input, the earth terminal and the optical isolation from internal circuitry of all available signals, ensures your investment is safe in all conditions.
The HDS800 offers a unique design which includes a unique set of built-in communication features, internal and removable battery which acts as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for a power source outage, internal memory expandable through USB key, UHF and GPS aerial kits with low-loss cables, and rugged mounting parts for easy and powerful installation on-board ships or various machines.
