Topcon FC-2500 Data Collector

624MHz XScale processor with Windows CE.NET 5.0 operating system
Windows CE.NET operating system provides a modern operating environment and added expandability with other application software. The fast 624MHz processor leads in performance and reliability.

Built-in 5 mega pixel camera
That’s right, a full 5.17 mega pixel camera with auto focus picture taking ability. That is why we built-in 2Gb of RAM.The camera has an auto-focus function and a flash illumination. Store photos in BMP or JPG format, and if you fill the memory, simply use a common USB flash drive to offload images.

Extra Memory
The FC-2500 is loaded with all the memory you should need. Primary program ram is 256Mb. In addition, it includes 2GB Flash storage memory. We want you to use the camera and know those file sizes can add up fast.

Bluetooth and WiFi
Bluetooth and WiFi come standard. No need for expensive upgrades or CF cards. We built these into the standard unit. We provide a way to turn them off as well to conserve battery power when you do not need WiFi or BT. With Topcon’s other advanced systems coming to market with built-in WiFi, this form of data exchange will become more and more important. Use your device in a typical Hotspot to surf the web, check weather, e-mail files back to the office, etc

Bar Code Reader
The digital camera doubles as a bar code reader. Laser pointers identify the bar code and scan that information directly into the text field you have your cursor placed. Imagine your stakeout locations having a barcode attached to the stake. Simply place your blinking cursor into the description or point number field of TopSurv and press the Bar Code scan button. The field will fill with the bar code information. There are so many possibilities for this function that we are sure our users will surprise us with unique applications.

Windows CE 5.0
This operating platform is the most stable in today’s platform offerings. Simple and familiar functionality leads to fast learning curves. It also allows higher resolution images to be processed.

FC-2500 Add-on robotic radio design
The FC-2500 has an add-on connection on the back of the unit to control a spread spectrum radio for robotics communication. Use this connector and an RS-1 to have a cablefree radio connection to the Topcon robotic instruments. Additional packs may be possible in the future.

Alphanumeric Keyboard
Finally a 55 key alphanumeric keyboard plus joystick unit that can control the Robotic systems. We know that land surveyors typically prefer an alphanumeric keyboard data collector. This FC-2200 can handle the robotic radio as an expansion slot radio.

USB Flash Drive
Use the USB mini port as both a Host and Client. This On-The-Go (OTG) functionality allows for expanded memory and easy file transfer through USB flash drives or ActiveSync connection. This design also provides rugged protection. The FC-2500 can not be compromised by opening a card door or flap. The entire unit is sealed and submersible.

Removable, hot swappable battery packs
With two NiMH batteries loaded standard with 2500mAh each, battery performance can be as high as 50 hours. The typical power drain from a Bluetooth connection to a GPS receiver will run for 24 hours. Don’t ever worry about overcharging, the FC-2500 has internal temperature monitors to prevent any unexpected high temperature issues.

Waterproof and rugged
The FC-2500 is rated at IP-67, which means it can be submersed in water. The unit also has a 4 foot drop proof rating.

Alphanumeric, Ruggedized Design
If you are looking for an alphanumeric controller that provides big-time results, look no further than Topcon’s FC-2500. The FC-2500 field controller incorporates the graphical Windows CE.NET 5.0 operating system on a crisp, bright, color touch screen display that makes your field data come alive. This powerful operating system, combined with the versatility of USB jump drive removable media for data storage and transfer.

5.17 MP Camera
Capture Reality in yet an additional device from Topcon. Topcon understands that a picture is worth more than a thousand words. This highly advanced camera can be used to associate photos with stored TopSurv points as Photo Notes. For every topo shot, as photo note can be stored.
