Field solutions for land and construction surveying

May 15th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Trimble announced its TSC7 Controller, a field solution for land and civil construction surveyors. It was designed based on customer feedback and provides a tablet experience with a physical keyboard and a 7” sunlight readable touchscreen that supports pinch, tap and slide gestures. Front and rear-facing cameras allow users to conduct video conferences with their office from the field for on-the-job support, and capture high definition videos and images that provide valuable context to their data and clients. The TSC7 runs Windows 10 Professional, powered by an Intel Pentium 64-bit quad-core processor. The processor and operating system make it possible to process data in spreadsheets and run office software programs. An ergonomic form factor, IP68-certified rugged design and optional, user-interchangeable modules make the controller a flexible solution for surveying applications. Trimble also announced a new version of its field software, Access 2018, with a new user interface and graphics capabilities. It also has more intuitive menus and screen navigation to take advantage of the TSC7’s touchscreen and computing power. Access 2018 also integrates with Trimble Sync Manager to enable cloud-based data management.
