R6 - OPUS QUESTION
I have never recorded static or produced OPUS position for an R6 as base. I need to do that now, and as always, I come here first for the answer, advice and pitfalls. I am going to set up on a random control point with R6 and need to eventually know the true position from OPUS. I am in central Oklahoma where I can't figure out how to use any RTK network.
What are you using as data collection? The data gets stored on board the R6, I think, but the trick is having a controller to start up the collection, then to end it later and download it.
You can get the Configuration Toolbox (download online) and set a new feature in the startup config (without losing your other settings) that it starts collecting static when you turn it on; then you don't need to use the controller to store or initiate the session. Then you get Data Transfer (download online) to retrieve the files. Depending on the age of the R6 ,it is likely storing .T01 files or .T02 files, and there is another download called Convet to Rinex so you can submit to OPUS.
If you are using Access you can set the survey style to collect the data, then download one of two ways.
I use the Trimble DL app on my android phone. You can control static sessions with it, but more important you can download, email and submit static files with your phone.
If you're using Access set up a Survey Style and configure the Base Options for Fast Static at 15 (or 30 for OPUS) second epochs and logging device as Receiver. Set the R6 as the Base in Bluetooth Options and start the session using Start Base in your survey style. When you put in the point number it will tell you that the point doesn't exist and you need to supply coordinates at processing time; that's a dummy light just hit OK. Turn off the collector and walk away.
When the session is ready to conclude, turn on the collector, go to GNSS Functions, end the survey, when it asks you if you want to power down say no. Go to Transfer Files (Bottom right-middle) and pull the file off the receiver. The file will now be on the collector for easy downloading. Use Trimble's Convert to RINEX utility to convert the T02 to RINEX.
