Trimble S5 Total Station

All you need to perform efficient surveying campaigns is available in the Trimble® S5 Robotic Total Station solution: An accurate and reliable instrument, DR Plus EDM, MagDrive™ technology, the popular Trimble TSC3 controller with Trimble Access™ field software and quick data processing with Trimble Business Center office software. Trimble has been manufacturing the industry’s leading robotic total stations for over a decade. You can depend on the Trimble S5 Total Station to keep you productive in the field no matter what you encounter.

Trimble Technology
The Trimble S5 Total Station is built upon proven Trimble technologies like SurePoint™, MagDrive and our DR Plus EDM, helping you work more efficiently while maintaining the highest accuracy possible. Smooth and silent, Trimble MagDrive electro-magnetic technology means fewer moving parts, which reduces servicing requirements. Trimble SurePoint ensures accurate pointing and measurements by actively correcting for unwanted movements like wind, handling, and sinkage. The Trimble DR Plus EDM allows you to measure with fewer instrument set-ups and enhance your direct reflex performance.

Manage Your Assets 24/7
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 jobsite or experiences unexpected equipment shock or abuse.

Trimble InSphere™ Equipment Manager system lets you view usage and keep up-todate 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.

Robotic and Autolock
The Trimble S5 Total Stations are available in robotic or Autolock®-only versions. The Trimble S5 robotic and Autolock versions have an optional TCU data collector with Trimble Access field software for convenient, simple operation in any environment.

Integrated Surveying
The Trimble S5 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 GNSS receivers and optical measurements.

Powerful Field and Office Software
Choose from a variety of Trimble controllers operating the feature rich, intuitive Trimble Access field software. Streamlined workflows 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 software to help you check, process and adjust your optical, leveling, and GNSS data in one software solution. No matter what Trimble instruments you use in the field, you can trust that Trimble Business Center office software will help you generate industry-leading deliverables.

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.
