Measuring 147 x 113 x 45 millimeters and weighing only 337 grams, the FlexPak6 builds on NovAtel’s FlexPak-G2 series of products by adding OEM6 features such as RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) for improved GNSS system integrity, NTRIP client and server capabilities for seamless integration into network reference applications, and 100-hertz measurements for high-dynamic applications.

The FlexPak6 features a translucent design to allow users to view internal status LEDs for easy diagnosis, while a wide input voltage range (+6 to +36 VDC), field-upgradable software, and an array of interface options, including Ethernet and CAN Bus, facilitate the enclosure’s integration.

Ben Greenwood, product manager for NovAtel enclosures, says “The lightweight form-factor of the FlexPak6 enclosure makes it ideal for weight and power-sensitive application such as UAV and robotics.”

The FlexPak6 is available to order immediately; product shipments will commence in April 2011. For further information regarding the product visit the NovAtel website.
