Trimble S6 Total Station

Powerful And Flexible
The Trimble® S6 Total Station provides the power and flexibility required by today’s Surveying Professionals. With the industry’s most advanced technology and available feature set, the Trimble S6 Total Station will meet the changing needs of your business, allowing your investment to go further.

Trimble Vision Technology
Now available with optional Trimble VISION™ technology, the Trimble S6 gives you the power to see everything the instrument sees without a trip back to the tripod. Direct your survey with live video images on the controller. Now you are free to capture measurements, to prism or reflectorless surfaces, remotely, and with point-and-click efficiency.

The on-board camera integrates surveyed data with the live scene images, so you can verify the work that you’ve done before leaving the job site. Calibrated photo documentation provides customers with deliverables they know they can trust.

Trimble DR Plus Technology
Trimble DR Plus™ range measurement technology provides extended range of Direct Reflex measurement without a prism to exceptionally long range distances. Hard-to-reach or unsafe targets are no obstacle to the Trimble S6. Trimble DR Plus, combined with MagDrive™, creates unmatched capability for quick and safe measurements, without compromising on accuracy.

Magdrive Servo Technology
The Trimble S6 Total Station redefines surveying instrument performance with unsurpassed integration of servos, angle sensors and measurement technology. The instrument’s advanced error compensation provides fast, accurate measurement every time. With smooth, silent MagDrive servo motors, the Trimble S6 offers exceptional speed.

Trimble Surepoint Accuracy Assurance
The Trimble S6 Total Station aims and stays on target through windy weather, vibrations, handling, and sinkage. Trimble SurePoint™ technology enables the Trimble S6 to actively correct for unwanted movement ensuring accurate pointing and measurement every time. Reduce aiming error, avoid costly re-measurement and be confident in your results with Trimble SurePoint.

With its exclusive MultiTrack™ technology and Target ID capabilities, surveyors can choose the type of target, passive or active, that best suits the jobsite conditions and be confident that they will find and lock to the correct target.

Eliminate Search Time With GPS Search
With GPS Search the Trimble S6 locks onto a prism in just seconds. Using a consumer grade GPS card with Bluetooth receiver or your survey grade GNSS in a Trimble I.S. rover configuration, GPS Search uses GPS positioning at the robotic rod to locate or reacquire targets rapidly. With GPS Search, waiting for target search becomes a thing of the past.

Integrated Surveying
Put the equipment in your truck or van to the best possible use by combining your GNSS with your robotic rod into a Trimble I.S. Rover™. In clear sky, enjoy the high productivity of GNSS measurements. In obstructed areas, Trimble Access seamlessly switches to optical measurements. Or collect both GNSS and optical data simultaneously for redundant results. With the Trimble I.S. Rover, you have the freedom to use the best tool for the jobsite conditions, optimizing your productivity.

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.
