VNet 6 Dual-Frequency GNSS CORS System

System FeaturesTechnical parametersApplicationsMore Information

The VNet 6 is built on HI-TARGET's sophisticated GPS/GNSS technology. Combined with HI-TARGET’s many years of experience and knowledge in establishing CORS/VRS system and monitoring system, HI-TARGET has the proprietary software to be used, such as HI-TARGET ZNetCaster and HI-TARGET ZNetVRS for CORS/VRS, HI-TARGET VNetStream and HI-TARGET GPSMonitor for monitoring. All these software are perfectly working for these applications. The VNet 6 is able to achieve extra high accuracy in real time by utilizing single-epoch algorithm.
The VNet 6 also provides an open platform to be fully compatible with the third party software on the current market.
Adopting advanced Pacific Crest Maxwell 6 custom survey GNSS technology, The VNet 6 GNSS Continuously Operating Reference Station(CORS) system with 220 channels for multi-constellation tracking provides high accuracy, productivity and efficiency. It is capable of tracking signals from GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Compass(BeiDou) constellations.
The VNet 6 is embedded with Linux operation system to support multi-user, multi-task and multi-platform operation with complete system connectivity. Five RS232 ports, Ethernet port, GSM antenna port, high accurate atomic clock port, and four power inputs combined with an industry leading 20Hz data rate, the VNet 6 provides high speed connections both in and out of the reference station.
The VNet 6 provides data for postprocessing and it provides an accurate reference station service that can be used in the filed by multiple one-person crews. The reference station network can be built up with several reference stations to increase the area of coverage. With the capability of collecting and saving RINEX and BINEX data, the VNet 6 is fully compatible with the existing CORS networks in the world market, perfect for establishing new CORS systems or expanding current CORS networks.
The VNet 6 has exceptionally low power consumption, simultaneously supports multiple-way AC/DC power supply such as solar or wind-solar hybrid power supply. Also, the VNet 6 has backup power supply to ensure no data is missed. The VNet 6 has internal compact flash card with up to 1GB of data storage and available for maximum 32GB data storage extension by SD card. It supports long-time massive data storage, and the data is well backed up during output.
Using Internet Protocol, the VNet 6 with powerful remote management functionality provides full receiver status, data access, configuration, firmware updates, as well as a variety of security levels and access controls.
