GSSI Announces GS Series GPR Product Line for Geophysical and Environmental Surveys
Published: 9/12, 2019
GSSI, introduces the new (200 HS antenna, the first of the next-generation high-performance GS Series, designed for applications that require deeper depth penetration. Designed to operate on 200 MHz, the antenna serves as the foundation for the GS Series, which is ideal for geophysical, geotechnical, or environmental applications that require high reliability under challenging survey conditions.
The newly designed 200 HS antenna is paired with the HS Module and wirelessly connects to a Panasonic Toughpad G1 or SIR 4000 control unit. The wireless HS Module incorporates system electronics, an internal GPS, and connectivity ports in an IP65-rated housing. The 200 HS uses GSSI’s patented HyperStacking technology, which improves signal to noise performance and increases the antenna depth penetration, nearly double the conventional GPR antenna designs, under all soil conditions.
The 200 HS is FCC, RSS-220, and CE certified. The GS Series features a modular design that allows the user to select which controller best suits their needs; the rugged SIR 4000, combined with our new WiFi Module, or the Panasonic G1. Both controller options provide different advantages to the customer. The SIR 4000 builds on the same user interface and menu options that customers are familiar with to accommodate the 200 HS. The Panasonic G1 features a GIS map mode that will display GPR data collected on the left side of the screen and a location map on the right side of the screen.
Designed alongside the 200 HS are several survey accessories to enhance the ease of use in data collection. The antenna comes with a tow handle with various grip options. Optional accessories include a GPS mount and a four-piece wheel kit that will decrease the wear of the antenna on prepared surfaces such as grass and asphalt.
