apogeetec: Sub-meter Accuracy Without an External Antenna

With so much cutting-edge GNSS technology packed into one remarkably compact device, The Zeno 20 will change the way field personnel capture GIS data. 

apogeetec is a new, innovative technology developed by the Hexagon Geosystems Group to solve the number one challenge faced by field personnel when working in challenging GNSS environments: The ability to collect reliable and accurate positioning data, at any time, from anywhere.

Improved satellite acquisition with stronger signals combined with contactless offset measuring create a radically new solution to deliver survey grade accuracy.  An intuitive user experiece with the option to run Android and all of the productivity apps that come with it delivers enormous time-savings.

    The Zeno 20 is the first handheld GIS asset collector to run Android (v4.2).

    Android utilizes the second core in the Zeno 20's 1.5 GHz dual core processor and taps the full 1GB of RAM. The result is faster load and zoom times, more robust data connections, and better WLAN coverage for data correction and data synchronization.

    Run any compatible Android app to turn the Zeno 20 into your mobile office. In addition to Esri's Collector app, you can use productivity apps like Skype, Ansana, even WebEx (just don't let the boss catch you playing Angry Birds in the field.).

  • Windows Enterprise users can choose Windows Embedded Handheld (v 6.5.3) and its familiar user interface.

  • The Zeno 20 uses the Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 Dual Core platform @ 1.5GHz for unparalleled speed.

    The OMAP 4 platform integrates Texas Instruments’s industry-leading SmartReflex™ 2 technologies to enable high performance at low power. SmartReflex 2 technologies combine intelligent and adaptive silicon, circuit design and software to solve power and performance management challenges at smaller process nodes, enabling sleeker, multimedia-enabled mobile devices with long battery life and less heat dissipation.

  • True hot-swap battery. No shutdown needed. Up to three minutes of backup energy is stored between battery swap.

    Battery Specs:

    • Standby: 50 Days
    • BT Only: 20 Hrs
    • GNSS Only: 8 Hrs
    • GNSS & Modem: 7 Hrs
