July 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Topcon Positioning Group introduced the T-18 handheld controller designed to drive geopositioning, construction, mapping and vertical construction applications. The controller includes a 3,7-inch sunlight-readable display with a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of internal storage, and up to 10 hours of battery life. For Magnet Field data collection, the new controller offers a durable ergonomic solution with faster processing, a larger screen, better connectivity and longer battery life than previously available comparable systems. The controller also features a 3.5G cellular modem for connectivity with company’s field data collection solutions for sending and receiving data to the cloud company account. The cellular option makes it easy to communicate with field crews when projects need to be changed or if important data is required back in the office. Additionally, the modem can be used for real-time kinematic (RTK) correction services. Additional key features include standard Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, as well as an IP65 rating for dust and water protection in demanding job site conditions.
