Raven Industries has introduced its new Phoenix 300 GPS receiver which combines Raven receiver technology with a Novatel OEM engine to present a dual frequency (L1/L2), high performance receiver capable of utilizing multiple frequencies and differential correction modes.

The Phoenix 300 is a WAAS CDGPS and OmniStar VBS capable receiver that can be upgraded to OmniStar XP and HP (requires subscription service). It is capable of both sub-metre and decimetre correction accuracies, dependent on the correction signal being used. The Phoenix 300 also boasts such functions as simulated radar output, replacing the need for a radar speed sensor, and AutoRestart mode, which allows for quicker differential convergence times on start-up, making delays a thing of the past.

Ideal for use with the Raven SmarTrax or new QuickTrax steering systems, as well as with the Envizio Plus and RGL lightbar guidance systems, the Phoenix 300 uses a helix-style antenna for more efficient tracking of satellites that are positioned low on the horizon. An in-cab receiver allows for instant access to configurations and settings.

The Phoenix 300 provides an economical, scalable and ultra high accuracy DGPS receiver in the same package. If the user decides that he needs a higher level of accuracy than sub-metre for strip-till, planting or marking out rows, he can activate the decimetre mode and use the OmniStar XP or HP correction signal.

Raven Industries also has new GPS receivers with the Phoenix 200 as the first to be released in this new line, combining Raven receiver technology with the latest Hemisphere GPS Crescent OEM engine. The Phoenix 200 presents an economical, high performance sub-metre receiver capable of utilizing two differential correction solutions.

The Phoenix 200 provides features and capabilities including:

  • Sub-metre, single frequency WAAS enabled receiver. Specifically designed for use in areas where WAAS signals are weak, this is a great all-around receiver for many different types of applications and equipment.
  • Upgradeable to the new e-Dif differential correction. e-Dif is a technique that models the differential correction over a period of time and then applies it to the GPS data to maintain a consistent, relative position. e-Dif is ideal for locations where the WAAS signal is very weak or non-existent.
  • Uses a helix-style smart antenna for more efficient tracking of satellites that are positioned low on the horizon. The receiver and antenna are housed in the same enclosure for easy installation and portability to other machines.
  • Ideal for use with the Raven SmarTrax or new QuickTrax steering systems, as well as with the Envizio Plus and RGL lightbar guidance systems.
