Pacific Crest ADL Vantage Pro

Most modern GPS RTK receivers come with an integrated radio modem, typically with a power output of 1 watt. While this may be enough for a construction site, if you are trying to survey over a baseline longer than 3 km your receiver’s internal radio may not have the range. Terrain can also negatively affect your range, with the enhanced under canopy performance of the Hemisphere S321 survey receiver you will be able to track your satellites, but be unable to receive RTK corrections from your base, as the interference of the thick vegetation will degrade radio performance. With 5 programmable power settings from a minimum of 2 watts to a maximum of 35 watts, the ADL Vantage 35 can be optimized for your job site. Working in a ditch? Set up your ADL Vantage 35 on the edge and turn repeater mode on, and your Vantage 35 will re-broadcast your base signal. Working over long distances? You can set the power on your ADL Vantage 35 to maximize your range and conserve your battery life. With the Pacific Crest ADL Vantage 35 base radio, you can ensure that you will never have to waste time on the job site.

Pacific Crest is the most commonly used brand of radio in the Land Surveying market, and the ADL Vantage 35 is their premier product. The ADL Vantage 35 gives you the capability to survey more area than ever before, with achievable ranges more than 40 km. The ADL Vantage 35 is programmable with up to 45 frequencies, meaning you will never have to worry about interference. The user friendly graphic interface gives you the ability to change your frequency right there in the field. If you are working in a “dead zone” the combination of the Hemisphere S320 GNSS RTK Receiver and the ADL Vantage 35 allows you to use your external radio as a repeater. All ADL Vantage 35 radios are rated IP67 for exposure to water and dust, and can be submerged up to 1 meter for half an hour. The Vantage 35 is backwards compatible with all existing Pacific Crest radios, most Trimble radios, and is capable of being configured for use as a Base Radio with most GNSS Survey Receivers on the market today.

Accessory

Our Geo-Measure radio antenna tripod is great for RTK base stations. This tripod with antenna mast gets your radio antenna to the desired height easily! The aluminum mast with a 5/8” x 11” threaded tip telescopes to 7.5 ft (2.3 m) and the tripod itself can be set to 5.5 ft (1.7 m) for a total elevation of 13 ft (4 m). Combine the antenna with our Geo-Measure base radio power kit – includes a 12V, 33 Ah sealed lead acid battery, and has a deep cycle -40oC rating. Kit comes with two SAE (trailer plug) cables with 15-amp fuse, hard impact shipping case, and base battery smart charger.

How do I get longer RTK range?

Real Time Kinematic surveying relies on a live data-link between the two receivers. Modern GNSS receivers have an integrated radio to provide this link at a broadcast power of one to two watts. By connecting an external radio data-link, like the ADL Vantage 35, your survey range can go from a 3-4 km radius to a 35 km radius.

How Expensive is a base booster radio?

A base booster radio is the most cost-effective method of broadening your survey reach. When paired with an antenna tripod, your reach can extend up to 35 km from your base. Bench-Mark has new and used stock available with prices varying accordingly.

What is an RTK Repeater?

An external base radio can also function as a repeater radio. A repeater radio receives the corrections broadcast by the base on its internal radio and re-broadcasts them. This allows you to extend the reach of your RTK corrections into dead zones in your survey area.

With 15 years of technical experience, Bench-Mark troubleshoots and correct most issues over the phone, and effectively remediate more extensive issues with our technical expertise. We have provided Pacific Crest base radios to the Western Canadian survey market since our inception and are committed to providing you with the highest level of technical support. We are always able to answer your questions, because of our extensive experience with these systems.
