Compact tablet for geospatial field applications

September 3rd, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Trimble’s new T7 tablet is purpose-built for survey and geographic information system (GIS) data collection applications. This portable and ultra-rugged tablet connects to the company’s suite of survey instruments and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers. Equipped with a tough 7-inch multi-touch screen, modular expansion capability, multiple connectivity options and featuring a Windows 10 Professional operating system, the table streamlines the flow of geospatial data between the field and office. The T7 features hot-swappable batteries and a rugged design that meets military (MIL-STD-810G) specifications as well as an improved grip zone for secure handling and portability. A professional grade built-in GNSS receiver supports GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou constellations as well as satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) capabilities for accurate real-time positioning. The T7 features two Trimble Empower module slots, which enables users to attach field-replaceable modules for flexible workflows. Modules currently available include a 2.4 GHz radio for controlling robotic total stations and a sub-meter GNSS receiver for increased positioning accuracy. Custom modules can also be developed for specific workflow needs. The tablet can be paired with multiple systems such as the Trimble S-Series total stations, SX10 scanning total station and R-Series GNSS receivers. The tablet can run the latest field applications including Trimble Access and TerraFlex software.
