A full 10 Hz telemetry GPS with micro SD memory card, TEK Vario, and acceleration sensor!
The new version 3 replaces the GPS-Logger 2 and remains fully compatible.
The new hardware offers:
- a new GPS module for better GPS reception even under difficult conditions
- further improved pressure sensors for even finer vario resolution with less noise
- a horizontally aligned TEK connection for easier installation, especially in narrow hulls
The GPS-Logger 3 is a fully-fledged GPS system that was specially developed for the needs of model making.
It is extremely small and light, but has excellent properties and possibilities.
With a recording rate of up to 10 Hz and the micro SD memory card, recordings of almost any length with high detail resolution are possible.
Telemetry via 2.4 GHz systems with a back channel is an integral part of the GPS-Logger 3 and fully integrated.
According to our philosophy of supporting as many systems as possible, the GPS-Logger 3 also speaks the telemetry of:
- Jeti duplex
- Multiplex M-Link
- Graupner HoTT
- JR DMSS
- Spectrum (via spectrum adapter)
The telemetry used only has to be specified once in the settings in the GPS logger 3. This is done either via our PC program "GPS converter" or with the UniDisplay. In delivery state, HoTT is selected.
With a built-in high-resolution pressure sensor, the GPS-Logger 3 uses telemetry to implement a high-quality Vario and, with the integrated TEK connection, also enables the use of compensation nozzles. This gives you a Vario function that shows very accurate real ascent and descent regardless of the "stick thermal".
A second pressure sensor is installed for an exact height measurement even when operating with a TEK nozzle, which delivers correct height data regardless of the speed.
The built-in 3-axis acceleration sensor provides information about the loads in flight. The acceleration of all three axes can be displayed here at every waypoint in the recording and also by telemetry.
The new OLC competition format, the Online Contest, is also optimally supported by the GPS-Logger 3. The built-in noise sensor (ENL = engine noise level) provides data that automatically detect the engine running times in a climb. The IGC file required for the OLC is created directly on the memory card and digitally signed, no conversion software is required.
Likewise, the GPS logger 3 can be used for another competition format, namely soaring league.
Soraingleague.net is a new website for easy online evaluation of glider flights with every model. Simple as it gets!
When operating with Multiplex M-Link, all data on the sensor bus is automatically logged by the GPS logger 3 and also written to the memory card> MSB data logger.
In addition to your own measured values, the GPS-Logger 3 can also read out the complete data of our UniLog 1 + 2 and UniSens-E live via a direct connection cable and write it to the memory card.
All measured values of the GPS-Logger 3 can be viewed directly live on our UniDisplay. All settings and alarms can of course also be conveniently programmed via the display.
The data is displayed and evaluated in 3D in Google Earth TM . All you need to convert to Google Earth TM format is our free software "SM GPS Converter" and the free Google Earth TM in the standard version.
Our GPS-Logger 3 is also supported by the well-known software LogView. Here the GPS data can also be converted into the Google EarthTM format. In addition, the values can also be displayed in normal curve / table form and much more.
The GNU DataExplorer for evaluating the data is available on a Java basis and therefore also suitable for Mac or Linux in addition to Windows.
Regardless of whether it is a glider, aerobatic machine, helicopter, HLG or slow flyer, the GPS-Logger 3 can be used in almost any area due to its light weight and compact size. Of course, the GPS-Logger 3 is not only suitable for model flying. It can also be installed in RC boats, RC cars, etc.
And the GPS-Logger 3 can:
10 Hz GPS, i.e. 10 measurements per second
particularly good resolution of the data
micro SD memory card
almost unlimited recording and easy reading of the data
Data is saved on the memory card as plain text
Further processing possible with many programs
high-resolution Vario with TEK connection
Height measurement with a second pressure sensor with automatic zeroing after switching on
Integrated 3 axis acceleration sensor up to + - 16 g
Direct creation of the IGC file for the online contest (OLC) with integrated engine noise sensor for the ENL measurement
full telemetry support for Jeti Duplex, Multiplex M-Link, Graupner HoTT, Futaba, JR DMSS, FrSky and Spektrum (via Spektrum adapter)
direct connection of UniLog 1 + 2 and UniSens-E possible for data recording (not during Futaba, JR DMSS and FrSky operation)
Recording of all data on the multiplex sensor bus when operating with M-Link
Connection for receiver signal for remote control of certain functions
Recording of the receiver battery voltage
Power supply by receiver battery
Internal backup battery (battery) for a quick start of the GPS
Start of recording can be set by various conditions
The current status is signaled by three LEDs
direct viewing of the measured values live with our UniDisplay (not during Futaba, JR DMSS and FrSky operation)
Parameter settings possible via PC, UniDisplay and telemetry
Rapid conversion of the data into the 3D representation with Google Earth TM through our free "SM GPS converter" software.
The program is available free of charge on our homepage www.sm-modellbau.de in the menu item Software & Updates .
Supported by the LogView software
LogView is a very extensive and yet easy-to-use evaluation program for the PC that supports a large number of different measuring and charging devices from the model construction area.
Supported by the GNU DataExplorer software
The GNU DataExplorer is just as extensive as LogView and, in addition to Windows, also suitable for Mac and Linux.
free firmware updates possible via memory card (the firmware file is available on the Internet at www.sm-modellbau.de in the menu item Software & Updates)
Technical data and the complete range of functions can be found in the operating instructions.
