I’ve been working on setting up an RS2 to feed RTK GNSS data into a ground penetrating radar unit. I just got it working and thought I would share my setup for others to learn from.
I used a standard RS2 with the cable to a female serial port. I have it attached to a GSSI SIR4000 GPR data controller. If using an analog antenna you plug the serial cable directly into the SIR4000, if using a digital antenna you plug the serial into the antenna itself.
In the ReachView software I setup the RTK ‘Correction input’ as you typically would using an NTRIP caster.
In the ‘Position output’ I set the Output 1 to On and Set the method to ‘Serial’, Device to ‘UART’, Baud rate to ‘19200’, format to ‘NEMA’.
In the GSSI software I selected GPS configuration and set the baud rate to match the 19200 and pressed start.
And that was it!!
