Trimble launches TDC150 field computer

By on 12 April, 2019

Trimble’s new Android-based lightweight field computer features a built-in GNSS antenna, 5.3 inch sunlight-readable touch screen and ‘all day’ battery.

The firm’s latest rugged handheld computer for GIS data collection, inspection and management activities gives access to Android apps, such as Trimble’s own TerraFlex and PenMap software, and Esri’s Collector for ArcGIS mobile map.

The TDC150 has a rear facing camera, with a new feature of TerraFlex indicating when the camera and receiver are aligned over feature, enabling centimetre-level horizontal accuracy while the device is being held.

“Adding the ability to get the level of horizontal accuracy required in a handheld configuration without the need for an external pole and antenna, and the new camera-based data logging workflow, gives our customers the flexibility to accomplish more while out in the field,”¬†said Rachel Blair-Winkler, business area manager for Trimble Mapping & GIS solutions.

The TDC150 is available now through Trimble Geospatial distribution partners.
