Emlid GNSS Receiver

GNSS receivers from Emlid

Many possibilities at a small price

The Emlid Reach RS2+ is the ideal device for fast and easy GNSS measurements. By receiving signals from multiple satellite systems, highly accurate positioning is possible in the shortest possible time. The device can be easily controlled via your own smartphone instead of heavy and bulky field computers.

The free Emlid Flow app is available for iOS and Android operating systems and offers the most important functions when taking satellite-based measurements. It is possible to measure points in the field. In addition, imported points can also be marked out in place.

The integration possibilities with other Emlid products as well as other suppliers are numerous. The Reach RS+ and RS2+ can be used as both a rover and a base.

A new product on the market is the Emlid Reach RX. The RX is the smallest and lightest (only 250g !!!) GNSS receiver in EMLID's product range and provides centimeter accuracy even under difficult conditions.

Emlid Reach RX

The Reach RX is a multi-band network rover that focuses on user-friendliness. It is easy to set up via Bluetooth; almost no configuration is required. Simply add the network correction data (NTRIP) and start surveying within seconds.

Small and extremely lightweight, the Reach RX fits in any pocket, so you can take it almost anywhere to survey points with RTK to centimeter accuracy in seconds. The Reach RX tracks GPS/QZSS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou and finds a position in under 5 seconds, even in difficult conditions.

Emlid Reach RS2+

The Reach RS2+ is the high-end solution for cost-effective measurements of coordinates anywhere in the world. It receives satellite signals from a wide range of providers (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, ... ) and thus obtains positioning with centimeter accuracy within a few seconds. The correction data required can be obtained from a self-built base station via LoRa or from correction data providers via the Internet. The internet connection is established conventionally by an insertable SIM card, or even more simply via Wi-Fi hotspot, from a smartphone.

The rugged housing and long battery life make the RS2 the ideal outdoor professional. It defies extreme temperature and weather conditions thanks to its IP67 certification.

With the help of standard output formats, the Reach RS2 can also be used in conjunction with other GNSS receivers. Correction data can be provided via a wide variety of options using the standardized RTCM3 transmission format. The transmission of coordinates in NMEA format to further software or hardware is also supported. For post-processing of the coordinates, you can also save the raw data of the measurement in RINEX format.


Emlid Reach RS+

The Emlid Reach RS+ is the slightly cheaper alternative to the RS2, but still a full featured GNSS receiver. The RS+ is a single-band receiver, which can lead to a slightly more unstable measurement especially in difficult conditions. Internet connection when used as an RTK rover is only accessible via the Wi-Fi function. The RS+ is slightly less accurate than the RS2, especially when more than 10km away from reference stations.

The Reach RS+ can operate well in a base-rover combination with the RS2 or other GNSS modules. By transmitting correction data via LoRa radio to the rover, the RS+ can also achieve high repeatable accuracies.

Emlid Flow

The control of all Emlid GNSS receivers is realized via the Emlid Flow App. The latest version is the Emlid Flow App, which has been available for iOS and Android operating systems.

The Emlid Flow app offers the following options:

  • Easy measurement of points in different coordinate systems
  • Export of measurement data in .csv format
  • Import of measurement points into the project in .csv format
  • Staking out points with live direction indicators
  • Configuration of the rover
  • Configuration of base-rover combinations

Emlid GNSS modules

The Reach M2 and Reach M+ GNSS modules are used for a wide range of applications and for integration into existing hardware solutions. The main area of application is aerial photography with the help of UAVs, where flight routes can be made more precise or photogrammetric images can be geo-tagged directly during creation. Thus, errors in post-processing can be prevented.

With numerous accessories, the modules can also operate as low-budget RTK receivers. These modules can also be applied as a base rover combination with other Emlid products. They can thus also be integrated into various systems where GNSS modules are required.

How Emlid GNSS receivers work

Simple satellite-based measurements without complex technology

Emlid receivers and modules are ready for use within a few minutes without time-consuming setup or booting of the hardware. With the help of one's own smartphone, all relevant settings of the devices can be made. It also controls them and provides an internet connection for the receiver. Optionally, a tablet, mobile computer or further smartphone can also be used for control.

Depending on the application, quick measurements over a shorter observation period as well as measurements over a longer time can be set to make results more precise. In addition to the measuring mode, the stakeout function can also be used to find and measure imported point lists in the field.

If the functions of the simple in-house Emlid Flow software are not sufficient, the measurements can also be made and expanded with the help of other common apps. In this way, point codes can also be realized and geometries acquired.

Project data is saved either on the control unit or the receiver and can be transferred to the computer with just a few actions.
