How do I check the GNSS tracking capabilities of my LD6 version 8 or 50?

Note that these steps are only applicable for LD6 versions 8 or 50. If required see How do I tell which version of LD6 I have?

To check the GNSS tracking capabilities on the GNSS receiver in the LD6 IMU follow the steps below:

This guide assumes the user has a computer with Septentrio RX Tools installed. To download Septentrio RX Tools Software click here.

Change following settings on LD6 to connect to RX control.

  • From the LD6 Home Page select Settings > IO and scroll through the ports to see if GNSS1 Config is configured. If GNSS1 Config is not configured, scroll to an unassigned port click Next, select Source: GNSS and Data: Config click Next, select the appropriate line standard for connection and click Next, set Baud rate to 11520 data bits (D) to 8 parity (P)to none(N) and stop bits(S) to 1. Hit Finish and then Yes on the summary screen.

    Hit Finish and then Yes on the summary screen.

    Hit Finish and then Yes on the summary screen.

  • When you have installed the RX tools software you can retrieve the report file by following the steps below.
  • Start Septentrio RXControl:

    Start Septentrio RXControl:

  • The receiver may try and use the last serial port. If this is not correct select Cancel Connection:

    The receiver may try and use the last serial port. If this is not correct select Cancel Connection:

  • Select File > Change Connection 
  • You can use either Serial or Ethernet connection (TCP/IP) to connect LD6
  • For Serial select Serial Connection, then from the dropdown list select Create New:

    For Serial select Serial Connection, then from the dropdown list select Create New

  • Select Next and the following window will appear:

    Select Next and the following window will appear:

  • Select the desired Serial Port, enter a connection name the click Finish. Now RxControl should connect to the receiver.
  • For Ethernet (TCP/IP) select TCP/IP Connection, then from the drop down list select Create New:

    For Ethernet (TCP/IP) select TCP/IP Connection, then from the drop down list select Create New:

  • The following window will appear. Input the Receiver Address of the LAN port of the LD6 which the PC is connected to, enter '9013' for Receiver Port Number and enter a Connection Name.

    Note: If Receiver Port Number is not displayed click Work Offline. From the main menu select File > Preferences and tick the box for Show port number for TCP/IP connections then repeat steps above.

    From the main menu select File > Preferences and tick the box for Show port number for TCP/IP connections

  • Click Finish. RxControl should connect to the receiver.
  • The software will now connect to the receiver.
  • Select File > Display Diagnostic Report:

    Select File > Display Diagnostic Report:

  • The following window will appear:
  • To view permissions Click IstInternalFile, Permissions to view GNSS permissions.
  • To save Diagnostic report for Upgrade select Save to PDF:

    To save Diagnostic report for Upgrade select Save to PDF:

  • If IstInternalFile, Permissions is selected the page will go to this section below shows GNSS tracking capabilities as highlighted below.
  • If enabled it will show “Enabled” if not enable will show “Not Permitted” as highlighted below:

    If enabled it will show “Enabled” if not enable will show “Not Permitted” as highlighted below:
