Pacific Crest is a leading brand of wireless data communication solutions designed for positioning and remote sensing applications. The combination of world class communication and GNSS technology with Pacific Crest’s reputation for customizing solutions, results in an unrivaled offering in the marketplace. Pacific Crest provides a total customer solution that reduces the size, cost, and complexity of critical data communications and positioning systems.
Pacific Crest serves a broad cross-section of major markets with its rugged and reliable radio and positioning solutions. These markets are broken down into two discrete application segments: precise positioning and remote sensing.
Precise positioning applications include land/marine surveying, construction and machine control, agriculture, and infrastructure monitoring. These applications utilize both Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) technology and the radio links that communicate Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) corrections from GNSS reference stations to GNSS rover receivers. Pacific Crest radios are the communication links required for precise positioning.
Remote Sensing applications include environmental monitoring, water management, and pipeline/transmission line management. These applications require the broadcast of digital information from remote sensing devices to central offices that process the data for decision making. Devices such as weather stations, pH meters and pressure sensors relay their measurements to radio links for broadcast back to the central stations which, in turn, send command/control instruction back to the remote sensors.
Pacific Crest radio modems provide wireless data links for RTK positioning and remote sensing. These broad spectrum transceivers offer up to 35 Watts of power and over-the-air link rates as high as 19,200 bps. The rapidly growing line of Advanced Data Link (ADL) products include: the ADL Vantage Pro, a 35-Watt programmable UHF radio; the ADL Vantage, a 4-Watt programmable UHF radio for survey applications; the ADL Sentry, a 4-Watt radio for remote sensing and monitoring environments; the ADL Foundation, a transceiver OEM board; the ADL RXO, a receive-only OEM board; and the ADL Uplink, a ruggedized handheld computer that streams Internet-based RTK corrections to a radio for rebroadcast into areas of poor cell coverage.
Pacific Crest is a leading brand of high-performance data links for the Geomatics industry based on the acceptance of its communications protocols as the standard for RTK surveying. Compact and lightweight, the radios are also watertight and rugged enough for the toughest environments. They are easily configurable in the field with an enhanced user interface. Easy-to-integrate modules are also available to system integrators seeking the best radio modems possible.
