Trimble VX DR Plus Spatial Station
Capture and combine scanning, imaging and surveying deliverables with the singular solution designed for surveyors. Integrating the technologies of advanced optical surveying, metric imaging and 3D scanning, the Trimble® VX™ Spatial Station is the only surveying instrument that does it all and does it with ease.

Capture the shape of the real world - every day
Expectations from surveying customers are evolving . To improve the efficiency of capturing advanced Spatial Imaging deliverables, Trimble provides an integrated solution for bringing these technologies together within the traditional workflows surveyors already use. So you have the flexibility to perform feature-rich scans every day, without the complexity of setting up a separate scanning system or switching to specialized field software.

With the Trimble VX Spatial Station, you can efficiently capture the information you need to create digital terrain models (DTMs), volume calculations, and perform topographic measurements faster than with traditional surveying methods.

Video-assisted control
Trimble VISION™ gives you the power to see everything the instrument sees. Direct your work with live video images on the controller . Now you are free to capture measurements to prism or reflectorless surface with a point and click

Combine GNSS and Optical Data
Take your productivity even further by adopting Trimble Integrated Surveying™ workflows – simply add your GNSS receiver to your robotic rod and powerful Trimble field software will seamlessly take care of the rest . This allows you to collect GNSS and optical data while simultaneously scanning a surface or site . With the built-in imaging and 3D scanning capabilities, you can capture the shape of objects of interest, such as a nearby building or power lines while you perform your traditional survey work.

With the long range capabilities of the Trimble DR Plus EDM, you measure further with fewer instrument set-ups and enhance your scanning performance.


The Trimble VX Spatial Station is designed for surface scanning, enabling the instrument to measure the shape of a surface for surface modeling and volume calculation.  Separating itself from other total stations, it captures and combines scanning, imaging and surveying deliverables. integrating the technology of advanced optical surveying, metric imaging and 3D scanning.   The Integrated camera in the VX Spatial station enables the user to frame the area to be scanned and to take snapshots for documentation purposes.

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.
