Description

Piski Multi is available as an Evaluation Kit (2.4 GHz or 915 MHz) and a Receiver Pack.  See the Purchase Options tab above for more information.

Features

Robust positioning – supports GPS L1/L2, GLONASS G1/G2, BeiDou B1/B2, Galileo E1/E5b for RTK measurements and positioning, and SBAS for robust sub-meter positioning in non-RTK mode. Additional constellations enable greater robust positioning performance in challenging skyview environments.

Centimetre accuracy – RTK corrects for ionospheric and atmospheric errors that traditional GPS receivers encounter. Thus enabling the multi-band, multi-constellation Piksi Multi to deliver localisation 100 times more accurate than GPS. The centimetre-level accuracy is critical for the safety and performance of autonomous applications.

Powered by Starling positioning engine – utilises Swift Navigation’s Starling® software positioning engine. Starling is an advanced GNSS RTK positioning engine that enhances the measurements of GNSS receivers—including Piksi Multi—to provide true precision and integrity capabilities. Starling allows Piksi Multi to support multiple constellations.

Easy to integrate – multiple high-density I/O connectors help to provide smooth and simple integration with a variety of applications and platforms. The Piksi Multi Evaluation Kit contains everything required for rapid RTK prototyping, testing and evaluation.

Cost-effective – Swift Navigation’s philosophy is that highly precise RTK solutions should be available at an affordable price. Piksi Multi is a solution at a much lower cost than comparable systems.

Compact form – smaller than a  credit card, Piksi Multi’s compact form is compatible with common GNSS modules, making it ideal to integrate into a variety of GNSS applications including, autonomous vehicles, robotics and UAS.

Loan finance

Level Five Supplies is pleased to offer finance as a payment option, iur appointed partners can work with you to make equipment purchase more straightforward.

There are many reasons to consider using finance:

  1. Improves Cash Flow: When you finance your equipment, your cash isn’t tied up in the equipment. Instead, it’s free for other investments that will grow your business, produce income, and ensure the equipment you acquire earns profits over its lifetime.
  2. Preserves Other Lines of Credit: Tomorrow can bring many opportunities. Financing equipment means you’ll have the credit available (either from the bank or other sources) to take advantage of future opportunities.
  3. Hedges against inflation: Your monthly payment remains the same over the term of the lease or loan. Money paid later in the term usually have less purchasing power than those paid at the beginning of the term…so you pay for today’s equipment needs with tomorrow’s lower-value currency.
  4. Provides 100% financing: Even “soft costs” such as training, shipping, installation, and maintenance agreements can usually be included. So you can rest easy knowing that these associated costs won’t disrupt your cash flow.
  5. Simplifies equipment changes: Hiring additional workforce? Increasing efficiency? Additional equipment can easily be added to your existing loan or lease. Or, if you’re trying to stay ahead of the competition by staying ahead of technologies, the equity in your financed equipment can be applied toward the loan or lease of new equipment. These options solve the problems of obsolescence – and make your job easier.
  6. Eliminates hidden charges: You have no compensating balances, no closing costs, and no blanket liens or other restrictive covenants that banks use to increase customers’ cost. What you see is what you get.
  7. Offers excellent rates: Our finance partner rates are highly competitive.
  8. Saves on taxes: Depending on the type of finance agreement you select, as much as 100% of your payments may be tax deductible.
  9. Offers many payment programs: Our finance partners work for you, not us. You choose the type of loan or lease that best fits your needs, and you select the length of the loan or lease term.

The finance agreement is between you and the lender, and we don’t take commission or referral fees – but we’ve done the preparatory work of allocating a broker for the US, and another for Europe, explaining the technology, validating supplier products and explaining how the technology will be used so your application process is simplified and focused entirely on the financials.

The initial part of the process usually takes less than an hour and means that you can spread the cost of a higher value purchase of equipment like this over several months or even years, allowing you to better plan your project or department budgets, but also means you can get what you need over the coming years, not just what you can afford today.
