      What Heading Correction Type Do I Use for My Application?

      Posted by Luke Wilson on Aug 20, 2020 11:21:09 AM

      Purpose: To determine which type of heading correction is best for different applications of the INS.

      Last Updated: June 2020

      For INS-D/DL: The “Dual GNSS” type of heading correction can be used for any application that allows the installation of the INS and two GNSS antennas with a baseline of at least 1.5 m (it can be static, quasi-static, and slowly moving objects as well as objects with high dynamic). So, any application where two antennas can be installed with a clear view of the sky and less than 1.5 meters away from one each other. When Dual GNSS type is used, the algorithm starts as soon as the GNSS receiver provides a heading solution.

      Device Connected but Device heading Differs from GNSS Heading from Dual Antenna INS

      Posted by Will Dillingham on Aug 18, 2020 11:58:23 AM


      Purpose: Diagnosing a common issue where the device is connect but heading as seen by device differs drastically compared to the GNSS heading.

      Last Updated: July 2019

      Common Issues:

      1. The antennas are connected, but the heading of the INS starts with 0 (relative heading).

      2. The INS heading differs a lot from the GNSS heading.

      Configuring Device to Track Specific GNSS Constellations

      Posted by Will Dillingham on Aug 18, 2020 11:35:08 AM


      Purpose: The purpose of this article is to show the steps to configuring usage of individual constellations, make sure to send these commands using an RS-232 connection and not to use Ethernet. It is critical that you follow these instructions carefully to not incorrectly configure the unit. If there is any uncertainty please consult a Customer Service agent. Developer options such as these may result in the Warranty of the device being voided.
