Trimble SPS700 Total station
The Trimble® SPS700 construction total station builds on over 50 years of total station technology to deliver unmatched performance for construction jobsite applications. The simple solution to all your site measurement and stakeout applications, the SPS700 construction total station takes little or no setup time and requires only two known points to establish position and orientation. Not only does the SPS700 provide superior tracking during measurements and stakeout, but the single-person operation increases cost savings and productivity.

Innovative technology
Exclusive MagDrive™ servos provide quiet, effortless operation and the fastest, most responsive and accurate tracking available. Unique SurePoint™ technology autocorrects instrument pointing for mislevelment and internal calibrations in real time.

Guaranteed, precise point measurement
Unique Active Target technology assures correct lock onto the right prism at all times during operation for constant, accurate positioning. Automated target pointing, tracking and sighting lets a traditional two-person crew operate with greater efficiency than a crew running a servo or mechanical total station.

Exclusive MultiTrack™ capability provides coaxial target tracking capability to any reflective foil target, prisms or prisms with Active Target ID (identification). This unique technology allows you to use conventional prisms for backsight, control point or monitoring applications and unique prisms with Target ID for site measurement and stakeout operations, eliminating locking errors in robotic mode during the search process.

Direct Reflect DR 300+ long-range reflectorless measurement
Quickly and safely measure hard-to-reach or unsafe places up to 600m away without a target or walking on the surface. You’ll realize significant increases in productivity and safety when measuring stockpiles, profiling cuttings and rock faces.


  • Totally cable-free at instrument and robotic rod for rapid setup and hassle-free operation during site measurement and stakeout in any operating conditions.
  • Servo controls and telescope focus located on side panel provides fast and convenient instrument operation
  • Long battery life allows over 6 hours of instrument robotic operation on one smart lithium ion battery and over 12 hours remote operation from an additional battery on the robotic controller holder.
  • Eccentric, detachable handle allows a full 90° vertical sweep of the telescope for steep sights and operation in tight spaces
  • Autolock and Robotic configurations allow operation in poor visibility or darkness with normal levels of efficiency.

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.

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
  • GPS navigation, and communications
  • Improved collaboration and control through constant connectivity
