Trimble S3 Total Station

All you need to perform efficient surveying campaigns
is included in the Trimble® S3 Robotic Total Station
solution: An accurate and reliable instrument,
integrated robotic radio and popular Trimble
TSC3 controller optimized for Trimble Access field
software, integrated high capacity battery and dual
charger. The Trimble TSC3 controller, included in
the robotic solution, is a groundbreaking handheld
field computing solution that streamlines the flow
of everyday surveying work and the number of
peripheral devices you need in the field.

The new Trimble S3 Total Station is backed by
Trimble’s extensive and knowledgeable dealer
network providing world-class training, service, and
support to maintain your productivity. Whether you
need to equip a new survey crew, replace older gear,
or start a new office, the Trimble S3 Total Station can
be depended on to get the job done well.

The Trimble S3 Total Station is built upon proven
Trimble technologies. The instrument contains
the reliable servo drives based on MagDrive™
electro-magnetic technology with fewer moving
parts which reduce servicing requirements. It also
includes intelligent battery and power management
systems for 6 hours of operation on a single battery,
and Trimble DR technology providing exceptional
measurement performance and accuracy.


Direct Reflex (DR) technology from Trimble enables
measurement without a prism on almost any type
of surface. Operators in the field can capture
information on hard-to-reach targets in dangerous/
unsafe locations. Measure quickly and safely
without compromising accuracy. Overhead cables,
tunnels, bridges, quarry faces, stockpiles, buildings,
and elevations can all be measured quickly, easily,
and safely.

The Trimble S3 Total Station optics by Carl Zeiss
are fully coaxial for measurement confidence and
reliability. With over 100 years of high accuracy
optical instrument knowledge and expertise,
Trimble builds the Trimble S3 system with the same
high standards of quality that Trimble is known for.

The Trimble S3 runs for six hours in Robotic mode
on one internal integrated lithium-ion battery, with
no cable needed. With intelligent batteries, you
can immediately check how much power each
battery contains. The convenient, all-in-one battery
charger included in the Trimble S3 package,
allows you to simultaneously recharge your total
station and GPS/GNSS system batteries in the
same charger.

Servo and Auotkcokc
The Trimble S3 Total Stations are also available
in servo or autolock only versions. The Trimble
S3 Servo and Autolock versions contain a fixed
Control Unit with Trimble Access on board for
convenient, simple operation in any environment.

The Trimble S3 Total Station provides the
foundation for Trimble’s Integrated Surveying™
solutions. With Integrated Surveying, you can
seamlessly integrate complementary technologies
on the job site, such as Trimble GPS/GNSS and
optical measurements, which allows you to use the
most appropriate tool for the jobsite conditions.
Trimble’s field and office software combine and
manage all the data, making it easy to take
advantage of the best that each technology has
to offer. Combine the Trimble S3 with Trimble’s
GNSS receivers to create a Trimble I.S. Rover
and start reaping the productivity gains from
Integrated Surveying.

Trimble TSC2 Controller Data Collector

The Trimble® TSC2® Controller is an advanced handheld computer
especially designed for Trimble optical and GPS surveying systems.
With the Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 5.0 software operating system, the
TSC2 controller runs your choice of powerful Trimble field software.
Add specialized applications to the standard Microsoft Outlook Mobile,
Excel Mobile, Word Mobile, Power Point Mobile and Internet Explorer
programs, and the TSC2 controller becomes a powerhouse of field and
office functions on one rugged business device.

Every innovative feature on the TSC2 controller is designed to make
your job easier. Clearly view background maps and check work on the
vibrant color graphic display for greater data control and confidence.
Use the full alphanumeric keyboard, or quickly select software options
using the touch screen.The unique TSC2 controller changeable cap
enables the use of removable memory or third-party media, such as GPRS,
GPS, camera, and product scanner functions. Extend your data logging
capabilities and experience a major leap in productivity.

Eliminate cable hassles and expedite setup with integrated Bluetooth®
wireless technology. When the TSC2 controller is used with a Trimble R8
or 5800 GPS system, the rover is 100% cable free for unsurpassed
convenience and ease of use. The internal 2.4 GHz radio option is ideal
for use with a robotic system such as the Trimble S6 total station.
Using the expandable media function, a GSM/GPRS modem can add full
wireless communication to the Internet in the field.Transfer data in
your office over a wireless 802.11 LAN—again, no cables are required.
You can also use hotspots to quickly and securely share data with your
office from remote locations.

Choose the method of data transfer that suits your situation. Using an
external modem such as a cell phone with Bluetooth, send and receive
files over the Internet from the field: you don’t need to drive back to
the office. In the office, internal 802.11 technology provides wireless
connection to your network. The TSC2 controller also provides USB and
serial RS232 communication options; data can be transferred to a PC or
another TSC2 controller using a cable, Bluetooth, CompactFlash, or
Secure Digital memory card media.

The TSC2 controller is central to Integrated Surveying™ from Trimble.
With an application such as the Trimble Survey Controller™ software
onboard, collect and manage both GPS and optical data in one Job file
simply by switching the TSC2 controller between sensors. Standardize on
one flexible controller for maximized investment. And your survey team
only needs to know one interface. When field work is complete, simply
transfer the Job file to your office using the communication method
that suits your needs.
