Reach RS3: Emlid’s Revolutionary RTK GNSS Receiver with IMU Tilt Compensation

Emlid, a pioneer in precision positioning technology, has unveiled its latest innovation: the Reach RS3 RTK GNSS receiver. Engineered as the flagship model in Emlid’s Reach RS3, it is designed to deliver unparalleled survey-grade precision, even in the most challenging and hard-to-reach environments. With its integrated IMU tilt compensation technology, the Reach RS3 redefines surveying boundaries, allowing users to achieve exceptional accuracy at large tilt angles without compromising efficiency or reliability.

Tilt Compensation for Unmatched Versatility

One of the standout features of the Reach RS3 is its advanced tilt compensation capability, which enables surveyors to conduct measurements at significant tilt angles while still maintaining survey-grade accuracy. Unlike traditional methods that require constant manual adjustments to ensure the instrument is level, the Reach RS3 streamlines the workflow by eliminating the need for frequent bubble checks. This accelerates the data collection process and enables surveyors to access previously inaccessible locations, such as building corners, obstructed areas, points on roadways, edges of excavations, or even underwater sites.

The Reach RS3 comes factory-calibrated and is ready to use right out of the box. Whether you’re walking with the receiver or tilting it to initialize, the setup process is effortless and intuitive. Moreover, the receiver is magnetically immune, meaning that metal objects and electronic devices in the vicinity do not interfere with its accuracy, thanks to the IMU-based tilt compensation technology that operates independently of magnetometers.

Versatile Compatibility for Seamless Integration

The Reach RS3 is a versatile multi-band receiver that serves as both a base and a rover, providing users with flexible options for receiving corrections from various sources, including CORS stations, other Reach receivers, or third-party bases. Whether utilizing LoRa communication or 450 MHz radios, the Reach RS3 ensures compatibility with a wide range of surveying equipment, allowing users to mix and match RTK receivers within their fleet for optimal performance.

Features Tailored to Every Surveying Need

In addition to its groundbreaking tilt compensation technology and versatile compatibility, the Reach RS3 boasts many features designed to meet the diverse needs of surveyors across different industries and applications. With its rapid fix acquisition time of approximately 5 seconds, the Reach RS3 delivers centimeter-accurate positioning even in challenging environments with partially obstructed sky views or tilted orientations. Moreover, the receiver supports RINEX logging and PPP (Precise Point Positioning) services, enabling users to achieve high-accuracy results anywhere, anytime.

Equipped with a built-in LTE modem, the Reach RS3 allows for seamless connectivity and communication, facilitating the transmission and reception of corrections via NTRIP services. Furthermore, the industrial-grade battery ensures extended operational endurance, with up to 22 hours of logging or 18 hours of continuous RTK rover operation on a single charge. For extended fieldwork sessions, a standard power bank can easily power the receiver, ensuring uninterrupted performance.

Comprehensive Software Suite for Enhanced Productivity

To complement the hardware capabilities of the Reach RS3, Emlid offers a full software suite tailored for professional surveying applications. The Emlid Flow mobile app, available for both iOS and Android devices, provides users with a comprehensive set of tools for managing field-related tasks, including receiver configuration, RINEX logging, point collection, and stakeout. Users can subscribe to the Emlid Flow Survey Plan for enhanced productivity and project management, which offers additional features such as coding, linework, localization, and WMS/WMTS maps.
