New Trimble TSC3 data controller

By on 2 March, 2011


The new Trimble TSC3 data controller is the latest groundbreaking handheld field computing solution that streamlines the flow of daily surveying work and the number of peripheral devices which surveyors need in the field.  It allows add images to surveys easily with the integrated camera and automatic geotagging with the internal GPS for easy identification.

A Powerful Engine For Driving  Trimble Access Field Software

The latest in a trusted line of field controllers, the Trimble TSC3 controller is designed for the surveyor's workflows. It performs Trimble Access software operations fast and delivers ample power to run third-party applications on the Windows® platform.

Make Pictures An Essential Part Of Your Workflow

With an in-built 5 MP Autofocus camera, you can take digital photographs of your job site right from the controller and images are automatically geotagged for easy identification.

Easily record the qualitative information that survey data alone can miss, such as site conditions or work progress. The benefits of including images as part of your workflow are almost limitless: from easy data handover to in-field quality assurance.



Communications That Bridge Field And Office

The TSC3 controller enables wireless Internet connectivity through an internal GSM/GPRS modem. This allows real-time synchronisation of field and office data files with Trimble AccessSync software,  any time and anywhere. Data  collection, processing, analysis, and delivery are faster and more efficient. Connection with the local VRS network is also enabled by the internal GPRS modem

For All Surveying Applications
The rugged TSC3 is purpose-built to make both Integrated Surveying and Spatial Imaging jobs easier, more efficient and more flexible :

  • QWERTY or ABC alphanumeric keypad  for quick and easy  data entry
  • Large and bright high resolution LCD touchscreen makes survey field work more efficient
  • An internal compass allows you to receive direction cues even when you are stationary or moving backwards.
  • The integrated GPS enables you to employ GPS Search on a conventional survey without an external GPS receiver. You can also navigate and find control points and other assets quickly.
  • Bluetooth wireless  technology eliminates cables in surveying systems. An internal 2.4 GHz radio option is also ideal for controlling Trimble robotic systems.
