Trimble Copernicus Ii
Ideal Solution for Mobile Products, Pick & Place Assembly
The Trimble® Copernicus® II GPS receiver delivers proven performance and Trimble quality for a new generation of position-enabled products. It features the TrimCore™ navigation software for extremely fast startup times and high performance in foliage canopy and urban canyon environments.
The Copernicus II is fully compatible with all applications using the previous generation of Copernicus module. The Copernicus II module is a complete 12-channel GPS receiver in a 19 mm × 19 mm × 2.54 mm thumbnail-sized module. The module is packaged in tape and reel for high-speed pick and place manufacturing processes; 28 edge castellations provide RF and I/O interface without the need for connectors. Each module is manufactured and tested to Trimble's highest quality standards.
The sensitive Copernicus II GPS receiver can autonomously acquire GPS satellite signals and quickly generate reliable position fixes in extremely challenging environments and under poor signal conditions. The unit also accepts aided GPS (A-GPS) data for faster startups in very weak conditions.
In Stationary Mode the Copernicus II GPS receiver can produce an accurate and stable PPS with an indoor antenna
- •Self survey
- TRAIM on clock and frequency
- Noise filter to reduce PPS variance
The Copernicus II GPS module is a complete drop-in, ready-to-go receiver that provides position, velocity, and time data in a user's choice of three protocols. Trimble's powerful TSIP protocol offers complete control over receiver operation and provides detailed satellite information. The TAIP protocol is an easy-to-use ASCII protocol designed specifically for track and trace applications. The bi-directional NMEA 0183 v3.0 protocol offers industry-standard data messages and a command set for easy interface to mapping software.
Compatible with active or passive antennas, the Copernicus II GPS receiver is perfect for portable hand-held, battery-powered applications. The receiver's small size and low power requirement make it ideal for use in portable appliances, sports accessories, personal navigators, cameras, computer, and communication peripherals, as well as vehicle tracking, navigation, and security applications.
COPERNICUS II STARTER KIT
The Copernicus II Starter Kit provides everything you need to get started integrating state of the art GPS capability into your application. The kit includes the reference interface board (see above). Also included are a power converter, power adapter, GPS antennas, and the software for you to readily check out how easy it is to add Copernicus GPS to your application.
The Copernicus is supplied packaged in tape and reel for the pick-and-place manufacturing process in reel sizes of 100 and 500 pieces. Smaller quantities are also available.
