UNI-Connect is the app, working on any device device with a browser, to control the UNI-GR1 and the Uni-Connect comes free with the UNI-GR1. It allows you to measure points, create logs and much more! You can use it with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or personal computer. It also works with different operating systems: ipad, android or windows. With this, we guarantee you flexibility on the work field!
See how many satellites the device is connected to!
The dashboard shows how many satellites signals the UNI-GR1, GNSS receiver, is connected to. On this screen, you can see how many satellites the device has traced and how much connection the device used. Not every signal is good, therefore the device is only connected to the favorable signals. You can also see what correction data method the device is set to. In this case, it is RTK, which ensures centimeter accuracy!!
What tells the statusbar?
The status bar shows all connections. On the status bar you can see if you are connected to Bluetooth, WiFi, mobile data and Uni-Cloud. If there is no connection, you can configure it in settings.
Store a position point?
With the Uni-connect you can save position points and save them in layers. If you work with different types of objects in the field, it is useful to store them in layers. So first select or simply create a layer and save your point.
As a result, these layers ensure that there is no confusion between the various objects. This way you can view one layer separately, for example, the obstacles, to draw your conclusions.
The Stake-out option.
With the Uni-Connect we also offer the stakeout option. With this survey tool, you can easily locate the points you need to work with. So suppose, you have received an assignment where the points have already been recorded on a map. You must mark these points. Then you can do this easily with the UNI-GR1 and the Uni-Connect!
Add or manage your layers!
Just like most surveying software, UNI-Connect also works with layers. If you measure points from different objects, you will like to store them in separate layers. Consider, for example, a layer for buildings, a layer for trees, a layer for guidance, a layer for obstacles. As a result, these layers ensure that there is no confusion between the various objects. This way you can view one layer separately, for example, the obstacles, to draw your conclusions.
Simply give each layer a different name and save them in different colors to make a distinction. Of course, you can also add a description.
Here you can define the properties of a layer. Suppose you have measured a cabling and saved it in a layer, then you would like to save its properties in this layer. That is therefore also possible with Uni-Connect. Consider, for example, the formulation of the cable tension, length or diameter.
Manage your survey settings.
You can configure the settings separately for each project. This way you can set the minimum accuracy of the UNI-GR1. You can also set the minimum connection solution. You can choose between three options Fix, Float, and Single. With the single stand, the device has no correction data connection; it then has a direct connection to the satellite. At the float position, the device is looking for a fix. With the fix position, the device has a very good connection with the right connector. Therefore this setting is recommended.
When measuring, you probably want to take into account the length of the pole that you use to record the positions. You can also set this in the survey settings. Our pole has a length of 2 meters, but this can also be adjusted.
Manage the profiles!
With the profile page, you can set the UNI as a base station of a rover. You can also select which correction data you want to use in this field. These options are standalone, which means that no correction data is used. Differential GPS, so that a measuring accuracy of 2 meters can be achieved. And the third option is RTK through which centimeters of quality can be achieved.
It is also possible to set in the profile through which medium the output of the positioning data has to transfer. These options are Bluetooth, serial and micro-USB. You can also set up the UNI as a base station. A base station is a GNSS receiver set up at a certain location to collect data for differentially correcting data of other GNSS receivers. The default mode of the UNI is Rover.
Configure your general settings!
With the general settings things like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and mobile data can be set. The uni-cloud can also be set here as a Hotspot, which is very useful for fieldwork because men have direct access to the internet while work can continue. And now you think where should the system be updated? You can also perform your updates within these settings.
Afraid of software problems? Don’t worry. We will give you free updates, so the UNI-GR1 and the UNI-Connect will always be up to date. This includes an update to compensate for tilt.
Manage your projects
Aha, get started with projects! With the UNI-connect app, you can easily start and create projects. You simply press the green button “new project” and you start the new project. Give this new project a name and optionally you can add a description that can be useful if a project needs a certain detail. Of course, you can configure different settings for each project.
Export your work to cloud or SD
You can export the projects to the cloud or save them to an SD card. You must choose the desired format. Your data can be exported as the CSV or the DXF format. Is there a certain format in which you like to work, but is not listed here, please inform us and we will ensure that it will be ready for you!
