Hemisphere S320

Until the introduction of the Hemisphere S321, the S320 was Bench-Mark’s best-selling, most rugged survey grade GNSS antenna. This was the pinnacle of GNSS technology when it was released. This receiver is well made, that to this day we still have numerous customers running the Hemisphere S320. Every used Hemisphere S320 that comes through the doors at Bench-Mark is completely cleaned and refurbished. We ensure that every part on the receiver is working and up to the standards you expect. We subject all of our used S320’s to a 3 km baseline radio test, if the unit is not up to snuff, we do not sell it. You can be assured that here at Bench-Mark that all of our equipment is up to the highest of standards.



The Hemisphere S320 is both cellular and UHF radio capable. The Hemisphere S320 has the flexibility to always get the job done, no matter what application you are looking to work with. The internal 1 Watt 400 Mhz radio is the radio you can easily get 3 km of range out of. This is the radio that has the ability to get the job done on the larger sites that you need to work on. The S320 also has the ability to work as a network rover. In fact, the S320 was the original receiver that our own StormCaster internet RTK was designed around. This is the receiver that you can rely on to act as a base or rover, on any StormCaster setup. Simply use the supplied StormCaster Script File, and start surveying right away.


Athena RTK Engine

The Hemisphere S320 also contains the industry leading Athena RTK engine. This is the same RTK engine found on Hemisphere’s S321+ receiver. Although the S320 does not get access to multi-constellation and multi-frequency capability, the S320 still performs well in high traffic environments other receivers would struggle in. This is the receiver that will surprise you. This means that the S320 has SureTrack Intelligence. With SureTrack; Long-range RTK baselines, reliable RTK in congested environments, removal of concern for the mixing of GNSS data from various manufacturers is all possible. Even if the base is GPS
only, the rover can deliver complete GNSS performance where others may not. The RTK rover uses every satellite that is available, not just the satellites available at the base. This is the receiver that can deliver superior performance in environments the competitors would struggle in.



One of the features that the S320 was renowned for was the hot swappable battery capability and the long lasting battery life. Although the battery life is no longer the original 10 hours, the S320 still boasts an impressive 5 hours of battery life. However, with two built battery slots, the Hemisphere S320 you can hot swap one battery at a time without ever turning off the receiver. There is never any reason to run out of battery with the Hemisphere S320, it is always ready to go when you are. The S320 is also built Surveyor Tough. This is the receiver that has been built for surveyors. Everything about the Hemisphere S320 has been built to survive. With an environmental rating of IP67 and a shock rating of EP455, this is the receiver that will take the abuse you expect it to see in the field. This is the receiver that you can rely on for years to come.

  1. Brady Lange – PotashCorp

    I’ve now had plenty of time to learn how to effectively use the equipment it seems to be working perfectly.

  2. Kevin – Bullee Consulting

    Next time we buy another RTK System we will not even consider anything else, we love the s320.

  3. Mathieu – Northcan Surveys

    This Hemisphere S320 tracks satellites and holds a fix position better than any GPS I have ever used before.

  4. Bill – JWL Engineering

    Accuracy is amazing, I turn it on and it just works!

  5. Kevin – University of Calgary

    I like it. Works well around trees and buildings…stays fixed longer, and if fix is lost, regained faster once back out in the open.

  6. Patrick Russnak – Lecor Construction

    I use the S320 it every day for the pipeline work it has performed very well, with near-perfect accuracy. I am very happy with the unit.

  7. Adam – SNC-Lavalin Inc.

    I have had no complaints from my 10 survey crews, so I will take that as a good sign.

  8. Tom Carter – Eagle Creek Technical

    So far so good, no problems. Thanks!

  9. Gord Cunningham, Survey Contractor

    This Hemisphere S320 works just fine.

  10. Casey Pennington – Vesecky Engineering & Surveying

    It is all going well.

  11. Dustin – Pinter & Assoc.

    It’s runs good every day!

  12. Roger – County of Vermilion River

    The equipment is working great.

  13. Steve – Madison Resource Solutions

    The s320 equipment has been working very well for me. Any glitches I have experienced have mainly been my finger input problems.

  14. Michael Byrne – Northwest Harris

    The S320s are working great! It’s one of the smarter purchases I’ve made. The accuracy is 2 times better than using my old sokkia 2700is! The company is very happy with the amount of stakeout I complete.

  15. Bill – TJC Engineering

    The system is working well!

  16. Andrew – BMC Services Ltd.

    The system works really nice.

  17. Cam , A.L.S.

    So far so good, it’s been working pretty good. What I really appreciate is your service.

  18. Danny Benson – Timbercraft

    The S320 is working perfectly, as for the Hemisphere GPS I couldn’t be happier. I can’t believe the difference between the old unit I had before and the S320. It has cut my field work time almost in half so easy to setup, very fast RTK lock fixes and I really like the Carlson software.

  19. Alex Campbell – Northcan Surveys

    Everything is working fine.

  20. Eric A. Zabate – Clifton & Assoc. ltd.

    So far so good, it’s working well. Surveying has been easier since I got it.

  21. Duncan Spenst – Water Security Agency, SK

    The system has been working excellent! We are definitely getting more distance from the base with the Pacific Crest external radio. We were out surveying in some rugged terrain a couple weeks ago and were about 8 miles south of the base and we were still able to get a fix solution.

  22. Paul Grimard – Arpenteur-Géomètre

    L’équipe de support technique de Carlson a rapidement trouvé la solution (qui originait de la configuration de Windows). Ce petit mot pour vous réitérer mon entière satisfaction de faire affaires avec vous et Carlson, tant au point de vue de la qualité des produits qu’à celui des services; je vous recommande à mes collaborateurs !

  23. Edward Salmon – Edward Salmon Surveys, Fort McMurray, AB

    The performance of the S320 receivers is outstanding. The fix comes very fast and holds it in areas that I didn’t get before.

  24. Tammy Smith – OGL Engineering

    Great customer service!

  25. David Harris. Aspen Survey co California

    The S320 units work great I’ve tested them on a private course with great results. Couple these nice receivers with the great service from Bench-Mark and you have a winning team. Simply the best survey purchase I’ve ever made.
