The GPS16X-HVS is a global positioning system (GPS) receiver that provides position, velocity, and timing information. Campbell Scientific configures the GPS16X-HVS and modifies its cable so that the receiver can more easily interface with our data loggers.
Benefits and Features
Supports real-time WAAS or RTCM corrections for accuracy of 3 to 5 m
Attaches directly to a CR300-series, CR6, or CR1000X, regardless of functionality
Connects directly to a CR800, CR850, CR1000, or CR3000 datalogger when PPP time-synchronizing functionality is not used.
Processes data from up to 12 satellites depending on the number of satellites viewable above the horizon
Allows the data logger clock to be set to the highly accurate GPS time
Configured by Campbell Scientific to output RMC and GGA data strings at 38400 bps
Extremely accurate timing pulse (PPS) can be used to synchronize time between the data logger and other instruments
