Drivers Manual

Network - Anchor Input - 23


Driver to be used to receive the anchor configuration/position of another Qinsy computer via a network connection.
Driver is used in conjunction with Anchor Output Driver.

Both computers should be connected through their network connection; this can either be a direct cross-over cable or though a hub.
The TCP/IP settings on both machines should be set up correctly.

Note : The anchor positions are transferred as Eastings/Northings on the survey datum so for correct visualization it is important that both Qinsy's have the same geodetic set-up.

The so-called remote anchor information can be visualized in the Navigation Display.
Anchor labels will have an '*' behind their names, to distinguish them from possible locally defined anchors.
In order to visualize remote anchors in the Navigation Display, you must enable the checkbox on the Anchors Layers Page of the View Properties.

So you can skip the second page when adding the system to the template.
