Data Sheet: (4011GPSCompass.pdf)

The 4011 GPS Compass Sensor from ppm is a high precision SBAS-capable single-frequency GPS receiver built for the most demanding applications.

The 4011 GPS Compass is designed for seamless integration into navigation and surveying solutions and guarantees reliable position and heading data.


Accurate and reliable
Processing data from 2 GPS antennas and 2 receiver on the powerful CPU, azimuth calculations are extremely fast and reliable (on average, in approx. 25 seconds after switching it on). The configuration of the system can be individually adjusted by the user.

Simple installation
The 4011 GPS Compass can be installed quickly in a flexible manner. The antennas that are supplied are small, extremely robust and impress with their reception quality, and the configuration software that is supplied runs on PDAs with Windows Mobile or on PCs with the Windows operating system. The 4011 GPS Compass calculates the position and the heading exceedingly fast. The receiver is SBAS-compatible and provides submeter positioning accuracy.

Wide range of applications
The 4011 GPS Compass can be applied in many fields:

  • Navy
  • Aviation
  • Agriculture
  • Container logistics
  • Military applications
