High-Performance GNSS Receiver for Real-Time Network Applications 
With its instant real-time multi-data streaming capability, the ProFlex 500 base station offers easy access to RTK corrections for real-time centimeter accurate land surveying and high-precision mapping applications.With built-in Ethernet capability and complete embedded Web server, for full control and monitoring, the ProFlex 500 base station provides survey and GIS professionals an efficient and cost-effective alternative to public or private network corrections.

The new ProFlex 500 NTRIP Caster features make it possible to access various sources of data from different base stations through a single Internet connection, as well as protect these sources of corrections from unauthorized users. The embedded NTRIP Caster allows ProFlex 500 owners to set up a network of up to 10 different mount points and up to 100 users. The network serves the needs of both the Survey and GIS markets by providing very affordable access to both centimeter-level and/or the decimeter-level real-time accuracy.

Flexibility
ProFlex 500 is a highly versatile product that can possibly be upgraded from a basic L1 GPS-only to L1/L2, and up to GPS/GLONASS configurations. Each ProFlex 500 can also be set up as a rover and is fully compatible with the ProMark and MobileMapper product ranges for complete cost-effective survey and mapping RTK solutions.
Dependable and Rugged
We have included in ProFlex 500 all the features you need for precise and reliable positioning, including internal and removable battery, which acts as an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) in case of power source outage, and an internal memory expandable through USB key.

The innovative design integrates all the communication components (Ethernet, GSM/GPRS, UHF radio, Bluetooth) offering an all-in-one robust solution to the user. Rugged and IP67 rated, the receiver is made to withstand harsh environments. Its high-impact resistant molded aluminum housing ensures that your investment is safe in all conditions.

Outstanding GNSS performance, combined with flexibility and scalability, makes the ProFlex 500 a perfect solution for your current and future positioning needs.
