Designed specifically for harsh machine control environments, the multi-frequency, multi-GNSS Hemisphere Vector VR500 smart antenna offers precise heading, RTK positioning and easy installation. The VR500 excels in the toughest machine control environments, meeting stringent IP ingress and MIL-STD202G shock and vibration requirements. A fully scalable solution, the VR500 tracks GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS and IRNSS and is also Atlas L-band and SBAS capable.

Designed for ease-of-installation, the all-in-one unit connects with just one cable supporting integration of CANbus and UHF RTK radio with position and heading messages. The powerful and easy-to-use webUI allows the user to control, manage and upgrade firmware and activations using Wi-Fi. VR500 offers a robust set of connectivity options allowing corrections to be received via radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Serial.

Powered by Athena GNSS engine, VR500 provides centimeter-level RTK. Athena excels in virtually every environment where high-accuracy GNSS receivers can be used. Integrated L-band adds support for Atlas GNSS global corrections for meter to sub-decimeter level accuracy while Tracer technology helps maintain position during correction signal outages. VR500 also uses Hemisphere’s aRTK technology, powered by Atlas. This feature allows the receiver to operate with RTK accuracies when RTK corrections fail.
