PPP
Support

RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so you can now get centimeter-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy.

16GB of storage
160+ days of logging at 1 Hz

Built-in
LTE Modern

Reach RS2+ features a power-efficient LTE modem with 2G/3G fallback and global coverage. Now corrections can be accessed or broadcasted over NTRIP independently, without relying on an Internet connection on your phone.

22 hours
on 1 charge

Up to 22 hours of autonomous work when logging data and up to 16 hours as a LTE rover, even in cold weather—no more need to carry spare batteries with you. Reach RS2+ can charge from a USB wall charger or a power bank over USB-C.

Surveying with
Emlid Flow

With Emlid Flow, you can collect and stake out points and control all the features of Reach receivers, such as setting up a base station, logging RINEX data, and configuring NMEA output.

The app is available both for Android and iOS, supports thousands of coordinate systems and is translated into multiple languages.

Get Emlid Flow for iOS - download from the App Store
Get Emlid Flow for Android - download from Google Play

Point collection:
save points & export data to CSV

Record each position as a point with centimeter precise coordinates. Export projects and open them in GIS or CAD software like AutoCAD, ArcGIS, QGIS, and others.

Cordinate systems based on

WGS84, NAD83, GDA2020
and others

Stakeout: find points
position on the ground

Stakeout is used to find exact physical locations of points. They can be collected in Emlid Flow or imported from other CAD or GIS software.

Logging in RINEX:
record raw data, position,
and base correction logs

Record raw data, position and base correction logs. Point collection and recording of RAW data are independent processes and can be used simultaneously. Emlid Flow has a simple and intuitive interface for logging configuration and control.

We provide our version of RTKLib for PPK. It’s free and can be downloaded from our docs.

PPP for OPUS

RINEX raw data logs are compatible with PPP services so you can now get centimeter-precise results in any place on Earth. Process RINEX files in an online service and get position with absolute accuracy.

Connectivity

Real-time position
streaming in NMEA

Reach provides data in standard NMEA that is used by most GIS apps. Simply connect your device to Reach over Bluetooth or with a cable, and turn on “Position output” in Emlid Flow.

Reach can turn on & off automatically

Reach is able turn on and off in sync with an external battery connected over RS-232. This helps when the power button is hard to reach. For example, if the receiver is placed on the roof of a tractor.
Compatible apps

FieldGenius for Android, ESRI Collector, QField and others

Interfaces

RS-232, TCP, Bluetooth

NTRIP or another Reach as a base station

Reach RS2+ needs a base station as a source of corrections. That’s a requirement for centimeter accuracy in RTK and PPK. Base might be either another Reach RS2+ receiver or an NTRIP service. VRS is also supported.

Reach RS2+ works seamlessly with other Reach receivers over any link.

Engineered to
be tough

Reach RS2+ is designed to work even in the most challenging environments.

IP67

RS2+ is waterproof up to 1m depth. All connectors are completely sealed and protected from water and dust with silicone plugs.

-20 to +65 ˚C

We extensively tested Reach RS2+ in conditions that simulate coldest winters and hottest summers.

Polycarbonate body

Polycarbonate, an extremely durable material that is used in bulletproof glass, makes Reach RS2+ impact-resistant.

Covered with
elastomer

This is a rubber-like material that forms a shock absorber around the whole device. In a sophisticated manufacturing process, elastomer is permanently bonded to the polycarboante base so that if your bipod falls over, Reach RS2+ will bump off no marks left.

LoRa radio

868/915 MHz

Frequency range

Up to 8 km

At only 100mW

300% more range

Compared with FSK radios at the same power
LoRa Spread Spectrum modulation can work on distances up to 4 times longer compared with traditional FSK radios at the same power output. This gives Reach RS2+ robust radio performance without sacrificing battery life. LoRa radio is used to connect rover to base when Internet-delivered corrections are not available.

Industrial battery

LiFePO4

Industrial battery that handles both high and low temperatures well.

USB-C

Reach RS2+ charges from any USB port and power bank.

2,000+ cycles

of charging and discharging while maintaining original capacity.
Reach RS2+ works for up to 22 hours in static logging and up to 16 hours in RTK with cellular on. You don't need to worry about having spare batteries or replacing them in the field. Hot-swaps are a thing of the past.

Reach RS2+ is the evolution
of Reach RS2 receiver

LTE modem

The new Reach RS2+ comes with a power-efficient LTE modem which enables you to connect to 2G, 3G and 4G networks, providing connectivity when and where you need it.

Dual diversity antennas

While Reach RS2 had one cellular antenna, RS2+ features dual diversity LTE antennas for better cell reception on the edge of the networks.

20+ design improvements

Based on field experience of Reach RS2, we added more than 20 design improvements that are going to ease your work.
