Trimble® SPS855 and SPS985 Modular GPS Receivers


Specifications of the Trimble SPS855 GNSS Modular Receiver

The Trimble® SPS855 GNSS Modular Receiver is simply the most advanced construction modular receiver on the market. Its position-only or position and heading capability set it apart from the competition. Its ease of configuration and use as a base or rover, and its choice of antennas make it truly universal - capable of any operation.

The SPS855 combines the radio and GPS receiver in a single housing. You can secure the majority of your investment inside a site trailer, vessel cabin, or carrying case, protected from the elements and/or theft, leaving only the antennas outside.

Available in a range of options to suit your individual applications, flexibility and performance requirements, versatile Trimble GNSS receivers are a future-proof investment. The SPS855 uses all currently available satellite signals including L1, L2 and the GPS modernized L2C code. It can be upgraded with GLONASS and L5 GPS signals to optimize performance in areas of tough GPS-only conditions and maximize your investment well into the future.

It is also part of a larger family of receivers that have the same user interface, the same accessories and the same workflows, allowing multi-unit fleets to be created with interchangeable components.

Specifications of the Trimble SPS985 GNSS Smart Antenna

Built on the advanced Trimble Maxwell™ 6 chip and Trimble 360™ technology, the SPS985 GNSS Smart Antenna can utilize more GNSS constellations, satellites, and signals than traditional GPS, so it delivers greater accuracy in more challenging conditions such as under tree canopy and in urban areas. That also means more uptime using the system and more productivity for job crews.

The SPS985 is powered by advanced Trimble R-Track technology and the following satellite systems and correction sources:

  • Features & Benefits:
  • GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS and Chinese Compass Navigation System
  • Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) such as WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, and QZSS
  • OmniSTAR VBS, XP or HP
  • Precision GNSS base station (RTK corrections)
  • DGPS using UHF radio links (RTCM)
  • Virtual Reference Station (VRS)
  • Trimble Internet Base Station Service (IBSS)
