HI ArduSimple team,
I have 1 simpleRTK2B for my application. I would now build an RTK base with Long Range radio. Would you please let me know the hardware setup and the additional hardware I need. Is there any tutorial available?
Thanks,

You need:
1x rover LR https://www.ardusimple.com/product/simplertk2b-lr-rover-ip65/
1x radio LR for your existing board: https://www.ardusimple.com/product/radio-module-long-range/

LR radios are pre-configured, you can load our configuration files to base and rover: https://www.ardusimple.com/configuration-files/

Hi Ardusimple,
I follow your suggestion to change both boards to rover configuration.
+ USB cable connects POWER_XBEE and PC
+ run XCTU, close u-center
[case 1] simpleRTK2B #2007 [rover] port detected but no detection of any XBEE (2 XBEE tested)
[case 2] simpleRTK2B #2007 [rover] port detected and 2 XBEE detected as
i) 115200/8/N/1/N – AT; XBee SX 868; MAC: 0013AxxxxxxxxxxA
ii) 115200/8/N/1/N – AT; XBee SX 868; MAC: 0013AxxxxxxxxxxD
Hope that I can get some suggestions from your side.
Thanks,
Best Regards,
mw2

Hi mw2.parkis,
seems like one of your simpleRTK2B boards is defective/damaged. Unfortunately the only way to continue is to send the “failing” board + one radio (so we can reproduce your problem) for service. You can contact us at info@ardusimple.com to start the return process.

HI Ardusimple team,
My boards have been sent to your company last week. I would like to know what is the normal period for the analyzing process?
Thanks,
mw

Hi mw2.parkis,
If you have a tracking number please send it to info@ardusimple.com. Usually it takes one week / 10 days for the analysis / repair.
