The features and benefits of the Trimble R780, make it a go-to resource for anyone interested in this advanced GNSS technology.

Key Features of the Trimble R780

Multi-Constellation GNSS Support – The Trimble R780 leverages multiple GNSS constellations including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and BeiDou. This broad satellite support ensures better accuracy and reliability, even in challenging conditions like dense urban areas or under heavy foliage. 

Trimble R-Track Technology – Trimble’s proprietary R-Track technology enhances the receiver’s capability to utilize a broader range of signals. This technology improves performance, especially in environments where traditional GNSS systems struggle.

Advanced Correction Sources – The R780 supports a variety of correction sources, including:

  • CenterPoint RTX: Delivers high-precision GNSS corrections via satellite or internet.
  • Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS): Such as WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, and QZSS.
  • RTK Corrections: From precision GNSS base stations.
  • DGPS using UHF radio links: Utilizing RTCM protocols.
  • Virtual Reference Station (VRS) and Trimble Internet Base Station Service (IBSS)

Rugged and Durable Design – The R780 is engineered for durability. It combines ruggedness and compactness, making it one of the toughest GNSS receivers available. This ensures minimal downtime and maximum productivity, even in the harshest conditions.

Tilt Compensation – Equipped with tilt compensation technology, the R780 allows for accurate point capture even when the receiver is not level. This feature is particularly useful for surveying hard-to-reach areas and increases data collection efficiency.

The Benefits of the Trimble R780
