Trimble Introduces Next Generation Mechanical Total Stations - 02/10/2017

Trimble has announced the release of the C5 and C3, the next generation of mechanical total stations to support land survey professionals with their cadastral survey, topographic survey and stakeout needs. The C-Series enhance the Trimble portfolio with new productivity boosting features that make everyday field work easier and faster. The announcement was made at INTERGEO 2017.

The Trimble C5 and C3 total stations come standard with autofocus technology. With premium-quality Nikon optics, the new C-Series reduces time in the field with improved measuring speed and the longest electronic distance measuring (EDM) range of any Trimble conventional instrument. Users can also protect their investment with the optional Trimble L2P (Locate2Protect) for asset security to locate lost, stolen or missing equipment as well as the optional Trimble AllTrak location technology for asset management to track and manage jobsite tools.

"For many of our customers, mechanical total stations are indispensable tools for managing the daily workload,” said Ron Bisio, vice president of Trimble Geospatial. “Our continued innovation in this category underlines our commitment to all types of surveying customers and a wide variety of applications.”

The C-Series integrates seamlessly with Trimble's industry-leading field and office software. With Trimble Access software, users can harness the full potential through intuitive, step-by-step data collection in the field. The C5 includes Trimble Access software on-board. The C3 provides an option to operate the instrument with either its on-board software or Trimble Access on a handheld controller such as the Trimble TSC3.

The Trimble C-Series of mechanical total stations is expected to be available during the fourth quarter of 2017. Standard total station accessories are also available. For more information, visit:
