XPosition

XPosition

A-XGPS

The XPosition module provides connectivity between high precision GPS and inertial navigation devices to Rockwell Automation’s Logix (ControlLogix® and CompactLogix™) family of controllers.

The module operates in a Logix “owned” mode. With a Logix connection the input and output assemblies will provide additional diagnostics information which will be available in the Logix controller environment.

The module uses an external GPS receiver to provide accurate position information. The external GPS or inertial navigation device provides various accuracy estimates allowing the user to make informed decisions for high precision position and velocity applications.

The XPosition module supports dual antenna receivers, allowing users to access Yaw, Tilt and Heading data.

The integrated webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of GPS time, position, and velocity without the need for any additional software.
