A quick and easy-to-use mounting system for vehicles

The RT-Strut is a fast car mounting system for our GNSS/INS products. Equipment can be mounted securely on the strut in most vehicles in minutes.

Quick to install

The RT-Strut fits between the floor and the roof of the car. A built-in spring provides the necessary force required to keep the RT-Strut in place. Fitting is simply a matter pulling a lever.

Secure multiple products

A number of different brackets mean the RT-Strut can be used to simultaneously mount multiple products. This is particularly useful in automotive ADAS applications where it is often necessary to mount a GNSS/INS product in the car along with an RT-Range S product.

Improved measurement accuracy

Our INS+GNSS products measure the slightest movement with great accuracy. The RT-Strut provides a rigid mount in every axis, so you know you’re measuring the movement of the vehicle – not movement of the product.

Supplementary Retaining Strap System

To improve the safety and security of our RT mounting solutions, the RT-Strut is now comes with a Supplementary Retaining Strap System. This important new safety feature is for use when the RT-Strut is mounted in the vehicle cabin to prevent it moving forwards in the event of a crash. The system attaches to an ISOFix point in the vehicle to ensure stability of the unit during testing. We recommend that the Supplementary Retaining Strap System is used whenever the strut is mounted in the cabin. Full details of installation can be found in the addendum to the manual, which can be download here.

Please note: Your safety is important. We have designed the RT-Strut and provided the Supplementary Retaining Strap System to ensure safe use of OxTS products. However, it is important that you perform your own risk assessments of any testing you do, in order that you and your colleagues stay safe.
