Emlid Reach RS2 GPS antenna is crafted with an impressive level of impact resistance. The main body of the device is manufactured using a two-step injection process. The body’s internal layer is moulded from polycarbonate, which is a highly durable material that does not get affected by destructive weather elements a land surveyor is confronted with while doing GPS survey work. Amid the moulding process, a precision CNC machine threaded is inserted to form a single layer with the plastic. A special elastomer is used to cover the hard outer shell so that a shock absorber is formed around the device, thereby protecting it from impact.
