Mount & Antenna - Vest & Pole GPS GNSS GIS Eos Arrow receiver

Arrow Quick Start Guide

Mount & Antenna: Vest & Pole

This is Step 3 of 3 // Return to Step 1

Your Arrow, paired device, and application are all set up. To complete the setup:

  1. Extend pole and mount on vest
  2. Assemble and mount antenna/plate
  3. Connect Arrow to antenna cable

A. Extend Pole and Mount on Vest

Looking at the 3-section pole from the top (small) end, turn each section counter-clockwise to unlock, pull out to full extension, then turn clockwise to lock into place.

Place the vest on a flat surface with the back facing up. Slip the extended pole, largest section downward, into the narrow pocket on the left side.

Open up both sides of the velcro fastener straps. Allow the pole to lay across the metal plate, and bring one of the strap ends around and snug it across the pole, attaching the velcro. Bring the remaining side of the velcro strap around, and secure it in the same way.

B. Assemble and Mount Antenna/Plate

Take the antenna in your hand, the side with the mounting holes facing you, and the gold screw connector pointing toward your body. With the other hand, grasp the antenna plate similarly, with the flat side facing you, and the elongated end toward your body. Now bring the plate over, laying the flat face onto the mounting hole side of the antenna, looking to line up the holes on both items. With the hand holding the antenna, grasp the plate as well, to snug them together.

Using the 4 provided mounting screws, line up plate and antenna, and secure the screws so plate and antenna are snug.

Flip the antenna assembly over, and bring the central screw hole down onto the threaded top of the pole. Screw the two together.

C. Connect Arrow & Antenna

If you are using the 1-piece cable, screw one end to the the antenna connector, and the other to the Arrow unit. Slip the Arrow unit into your belt pouch or accessible pocket.

If you are using the 2-piece cable with the BNC connectors:

Note the connectors on the ends of the two sections of antenna connection cable:

  • Right-angle connectors for attaching to Arrow unit & antenna
  • BNC connectors for connecting the two cable sections

Take the BNC (no right-angle) connectors in each hand, and note the small metal pins on either side of one, which match the slots on the other. Slip one into the other and screw down until it secures with a click.

Slip the Arrow unit into your belt pouch or accessible pocket. Finally, attach the remaining end of the antenna cable to the Arrow unit.

The Arrow can now connect with the satellites, and you should now see submeter location data coming into your Eos Tools Pro app once you bring it back up.


Install Data Collection Application

In almost all cases, Eos customers will also install a third-party application to handle field workflows, such as data collection or inspections. Eos partners with a variety of industry-leading companies (e.g., Esri) to recommend software products that already integrate with Arrow GNSS receivers and their location metadata. Explore our partner directory for apps we recommend. In addition, if you have a proprietary application and you would like it to be compatible with Arrow GNSS, simply contact our team for next steps.
