Programmable Base Stations

GEM’s base station units enable remote programming via either a personal computer or the base station unit itself. The main benefit is more efficient use of memory and batteries while in the field. For example, a base station can be pre-programmed and left in the field for a month or more of operation – minimizing the infield maintenance and support of base station units on either airborne or ground surveys.

Base Station



3 Programming modes are provided:

  • Daily Scheduling
    (define working hours and minutes each day)
    This mode provides economy of memory and battery usage on a daily basis
  • Flexible Scheduling
     (set up to 30 on/off periods)
    Simply define a series of on/off periods and the base station will enable/disable itself according to your airborne or ground survey specifications. This mode provides the greatest flexibility for longer surveys where operators who may be in the field for a month or more, and who do not want to schedule their base station daily or leave it running continuously.
  • Immediate Start
    This mode is the traditional mode of starting a base station unit and leaving it until the field operator returns to physically turn off the unit.
