Trimble BX982 GNSS Rugged Receiver Enclosure

The Trimble BX982 GNSS receiver module has reached End of Life (EOL). This product has been replaced by the Trimble BX992 GNSS receiver board.



The BX982 from Trimble hosts a multiple frequency and multiple channel GNSS receiver in a rugged form factor for durability and use in harsh environments. The simplicity of the BX982 makes for rapid integration and its pinpoint accuracy (down to the centimeter), ensures users have precise heading for various applications.

The BX982 can support GPS L1, L2, L5 as well as GLONASS L1 and L2 signals. Moreover, in view of its commitment to continue as the innovator in GNSS technology, the BX982 is also Galileo capable.

With GNSS systems using single antennas, it is difficult to determine where the antenna is positioned relative to the vehicle and object of interest. If external sensors are used to augment this, they tend to drift when static. These issues are overcome by deriving heading from dual-antenna GNSS measurements. The BX982 uses independent observations from both antennas and passes these to the processor to calculate multi-constellation RTK baselines. This results in less than a tenth of a degree (2 meter baseline) heading accuracy and centimeter accurate positions.

The Ethernet connectivity on the board the BX982 allows high speed data transfer and configuration with standard internet browsers. Software commands reduce development times and simplify integration. All software features can be upgraded with passwords, allowing functionality to be changed in line with requirements.


  • Two 220 channel Maxwell 6 chips for multi-constellation GNSS support
  • Rugged package that is easy to integrate
  • Precise heading calculations achieved via dual antenna inputs
  • Support for OmniSTAR VBS/XP/G2/HP
  • FDE and RAIM supported
