Ultra-Rugged Specs Met by Hi-Tech Mg Housing

The new GR-3 GPS satellite tracking unit from Topcon Positioning Systems is a major breakthrough in technology.

Project managers at Topcon wanted the GR-3 enclosure to be as advanced as the technology inside: ultra-rugged and durable but lightweight for portable field use; waterproof; dustproof, with fail-safe EMI shielding. A high-tech CWM hot-chamber magnesium die casting was the clear housing choice– shock rated to survive 6.5 t. pole drops to concrete.
