Today NovAtel Inc., a  leading supplier of high precision OEM Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) components and subsystems, announced the addition of the OEM638  GNSS receiver card and the ProPak6  enclosure to its OEM6 family of high precision positioning products.


The most advanced card within NovAtel’s OEM6 GNSS receiver family, the OEM638 tracks all existing and planned constellations including GPS, Beidou, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS. By providing flexible positioning options, from standalone metre-level to AdVance  RTK centimetre-level accuracy, the OEM638 offers the flexibility to meet a wide range of positioning requirements. A powerful API, 4GB on board data storage, wide input voltage and a host of interface options simplifies integration, decreasing time to market and overall system costs.


The ProPak6 is NovAtel’s most sophisticated GNSS enclosure product, offering metre-level to centimetre-level positioning in an extremely rugged, water resistant IP67 housing. Standardized software and hardware connections, including multiple RS-232/RS-422 serial ports, CAN Bus, USB host and device, as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and optional cellular radio, speeds time to market and maximizes user capabilities.



Jason Hamilton, Director of Marketing for NovAtel stated, “With the addition of the OEM638 GNSS receiver card, NovAtel’s OEM6 product line offers an even wider range of positioning options on our standardized technology platform. With three compact form factors to choose from, the OEM6 product line gives us the ability to meet the unique size, weight and performance requirements of our customers.” Mr. Hamilton added, “Our ProPak6 provides a powerful enclosure option for integrators looking for positioning flexibility, multiple communication options and Ethernet support for remote configuration and access of data logs. It was designed to simplify the integration process, by accelerating time to market and ensuring maximum return on investment. ”


The ProPak6 is ideal for reference station, timing and general position applications.


The OEM638 and ProPak6 will be available to order July 26, 2013, with shipments beginning in August, 2013.
