 Trimble S7 3" Total Station

The Trimble® S7 Total Station combines scanning, imaging and surveying into one powerful solution. Now you only need one instrument on the job site to perform all your data capture. Create 3D models, high accuracy visual site documentation, point clouds, and more using the Trimble S7, Trimble Access™ field software and Trimble Business Center office software.

The Trimble S7 is the ultimate system for efficient surveying, allowing you to adapt to any situation and increasing your productivity in the field. The combination of SureScan, Trimble VISION™, FineLock™ and DR Plus technology, along with many other features, means you’ll be able to collect data faster and more accurately than ever before.

Integrated 3D Scanning
Save time in the field and in the office with Trimble SureScan technology. Now you have the flexibility to perform feature-rich scans every day. Efficiently capture the information you need to create digital terrain models (DTMs), perform volume calculations and make topographic measurements faster than with traditional surveying methods. SureScan technology enables you to collect and process data faster by focusing on collecting the right points, not just more points

Improved Trimble VISION Technology
Trimble VISION technology gives you the power to direct your survey with live video images on the controller as well as create a wide variety of deliverables from collected imagery. Capture measurements to prisms or reflectorless with point-and-click efficiency via video. Quickly document your site and add notes directly to the pictures in the field to ensure you never miss that critical information. Back in the office, you can use your Trimble VISION data for measurements, or to process 360-degree panoramas and high dynamic range (HDR) images for even clearer deliverables.

Superior Accuracy with Trimble DR Plus
Trimble DR Plus range measurement technology provides extended range of Direct Reflex measurement without a prism. Now you can you measure further with fewer instrument set-ups and enhance your scanning performance. Trimble DR Plus, combined with the smooth and silent MagDrive™ servo technology, creates unmatched capability for quick measurements, without compromising on accuracy.

Stay On Point
Reduce aiming error, avoid costly re-measurement and be confident in your results with Trimble SurePoint™. The Trimble S7 Total Station aims and stays on target through wind, handling, and sinkage, actively correcting for unwanted movement ensuring accurate pointing and measurement every time. With its exclusive MultiTrack™ technology and Target ID capabilities, surveyors can choose the type of target, passive or active, that best suits the job site conditions and be confident that they will find and lock to the correct target.

Manage Your Assets
Know where your total stations are 24 hours a day with Trimble Locate2Protect technology. See where your equipment is at any given time and get alerts if your instrument leaves a job site or experiences unexpected equipment shock or abuse. Trimble InSphere™ Equipment Manager lets you view usage and keep up-to-date on firmware, software and maintenance requirements. With Trimble Locate2Protect and InSphere Equipment Manager, you can rest assured knowing your equipment is up-to-date and where it should be.

Powerful Field and Office Software
Choose from a variety of Trimble controllers operating the feature rich, intuitive Trimble Access field software. Streamlined workflows like Roads, Utilities and Pipelines guide crews through common project types, helping to get the job done faster with less distractions. Trimble Access workflows can also be customized to fit your needs. Back in the office, trust Trimble Business Center to help you check, process and adjust your optical and GNSS data in one software solution.

Trimble TSC3 Field Controller Data Collector
The Trimble® TSC3 controller with Trimble Access™ software is a groundbreaking handheld field computing solution that streamlines the flow of everyday surveying work and the number of devices you need in the field. 

A Powerful engine for Driving Trimble Access Software
Part of a trusted line of field controllers, the Trimble TSC3 controller is rugged and designed for surveyor’s workflows. It performs Trimble Access operations fast and delivers ample power to run third-party applications on the Windows® platform.

Make Pictures an essential part of your workflow
With a built-in 5 MP Autofocus camera and LED flash, you can take digital photographs of your job site right from the controller. No extra devices, batteries, or file transfers are required, 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 in real-time
The TSC3 controller enables wireless Internet connectivity through an integrated GSM/GPRS modem. This allows Trimble Access software to facilitate a constant flow of information between field and office, including real-time synchronization of field and office data with Trimble AccessSync software. You can download and upload important files any time and from anywhere, as needed. Data collection, processing, analysis, and delivery are faster and more efficient.

A wealth of communication options let you transfer critical information no matter the environment: Connect with VRS™ connections using the internal modem. Access your office network through 802.11 LAN, or USB and serial RS232 communication options.

For all of your surveying applications
The rugged TSC3 controller is purpose-built to make both Integrated Surveying and Spatial Imaging jobs easier, more efficient, and more flexible:

  • Easy-to-use interface
    • Control your survey and verify your work on the large, bright, high-resolution LCD touchscreen. With the option of a QWERTY or conventional alphanumeric keyboard, data entry is quick and easy.
  • An internal compass
    • Receive direction cues even when you are stationary or moving backwards.
  • Integrated GPS
    • Employ GPS Search on a conventional survey without an external GPS receiver. You can also navigate and find control points and other assets quickly.
  • Cables eliminated
    • Bluetooth® wireless technology eliminates cables in surveying systems. An internal 2.4 GHz radio option is also ideal for controlling Trimble robotic systems.

Designed to Support your daily workflow
Trimble Access field software available on the TSC3 controller offers numerous features and capabilities to streamline the flow of everyday surveying work. Streamlined workflows – such as Roads, Monitoring, Mines, and Tunnels —guide crews through common project types and allows crews to get the job done faster with less distractions.

Survey companies can also implement their unique workflows by taking advantage of the customization capabilities available in the Trimble Access Software Development Kit (SDK). The Trimble Access SDK provides software developers with the tools to customize and extend Trimble Access.

With a bright, daylight readable display, integrated communications, and integrated survey workflows, the fully integrated TSC3 controller will make your field work more efficient.


  • Large, bright, high-resolution screen makes instrument control easy
  • Optimized for Trimble Access field software
  • Fully-integrated camera, GPS navigation, and communications
  • Improved collaboration and control through constant connectivity
