Base Station Installation Technical Procedure

1-Install GPS Base Antenna (Zephyr Geo Mdl 2) in known points.
2-Put the rover in the pole that is supposed to be a base station
3-Connect GPS Base Antenna to Rover by using Controller TSC3
4-Measure points continuously for 2 hours (minimum)
5-In TSC3,

1-General Survey

  • Measure
  • Continuous Topo
  • Type: Fixed Time
  • Height antenna: 0.000 m
  • Time Interval: 0m1s
  • Point Name Start: 1
  • After finishing the measurement, export data of the rovers in the TSC3 Controller
  • Define the coordinate points that are supposed to be base stations by averaging position data
  • Open IP Address of Base Receiver SPS855 on PC
  • Base configuration menu
  • Input the coordinates (E, N, Z)
  • OK
  • Put the Base Antenna to the pole that is supposed to be the base station
  • Check the point in known points with the rover.
