MS992 Smart Antenna GNSS Receiver
The Trimble® MS992 GNSS Smart Antenna is “smart” because it contains an
integrated GNSS receiver, antenna, an isolation system in a single,
ruggedized housing that can withstand even the toughest construction
site environments. It is also the only commercially available GNSS
antenna that offers the performance enhancements of a new Trimble RTK
engine and supports the newest GNSS signals. All that means increased
machine productivity and utilization in areas that were previously
difficult to use GPS machine control – including under tree canopy and
in urban canyons.
Designed for rugged operation on Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems
and CCS900 Compaction Control Systems, the MS992 is available in single
or dual configurations on the following machine types:
- Pull-type Scrapers
- Soil Compactors
- Asphalt Compactors
Dual GNSS Antennas?
The patented dual MS992 antenna configuration is a unique advantage of
the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System. Using two GNSS antennas, the
exact position of the bucket, blade or drum is calculated along with
very accurate cross slope and heading. Dual GNSS configuration is
especially advantageous for operations with dozers with angle blades,
graders, and on complex design surfaces such as super elevations.
