Leveraging design principles typically used in military hardware, the GNSS sensor is protected against weather, moisture, vibration, dust, water immersion and unexpected circumstances that can occur in outdoor long-term deployments. In addition to its ruggedness, Duro is ready to connect right out of the box. Primary industries for this product include: robotics, precision agriculture, mapping, military, outdoor industrial and maritime.

Duro incorporates:

  • Dual-frequency RTK GNSS
  • Tough, military-grade hardware
  • IP67 rating
  • Weatherproof external enclosure design with M12 standard-sealed connectors
  • On-board MEMS IMU and magnetometer
  • Future-proof hardware with in-field software upgrades
  • Protected IO, including RS232 Serial Ports, 100mbit Ethernet, Event Inputs, PPS, PV, CANBus
  • Durable UV and chemical-resistant powder-coating
  • Flexible mounting interfaces
