Sokkia has unveiled a new radio modem designed to offer advanced radio connectivity with GNSS receivers. The R4S-BT UHF radio provides an external option for use with the Sokkia GCX receiver line.

The UHF multichannel radio modem has a tuning range of up to 70 MHz. Additionally, the radio features an IP67 certified housing with internal batteries that is designed to be easy to carry with versatile mounting options.

“The R4S-BT makes the GCX GNSS receiver into an even more scalable and modular solution,” said Jason Hallett, vice president of global product management at Sokkia. “It is perfect in situations without a network connection or when long-range Bluetooth technology is not enough on its own. Survey and mapping professionals can simply add on this external UHF and extend the range between the base and rover.”

Connectivity options include wireless data transfer and USB connections.
