New Trimble TSC3 Controller Makes Construction Operations Easier
Powerful New Controller Provides More Jobsite Control and Field Connectivity to
The TSC3 is a key component of the Trimble Connected Site™ portfolio of productivity-enhancing solutions that streamline site measurement and stakeout operations for highways, small and large commercial sites, landfills, waste disposal facilities, tunnels, railway construction and mines. To withstand these harsh construction environments, the TSC3 features a large 4.2 inch, sunlight-readable touch screen display, ruggedized bumpers and long battery life. The controller is shock, dust and water resistant for durability.
GPS Navigator, Wireless Communications, and Camera in One Unit
The new TSC3 controller features onboard GPS, wireless communications and a digital camera, combining the benefits of multiple handheld devices into a single unit.
These advanced capabilities and communications incorporated into one handheld allow contractors to realize significant savings by eliminating the time and cost of physically driving data updates to and from the field. Engineers can send design changes or work orders to contractors and crews in the field. The contractor can transfer progress reports, on-site problems, and as-built data back to the office on completion of on-site operations. Site issues and completed work can be photographed and sent back to the office overlaid on the site map—making it easier for managers to make instant decisions regarding remedial work.
Using the two-way data capability reduces delays and rework associated with using outdated information and synching data only at the end of the workday. Reducing delays and rework increases the likelihood that projects will finish on time and under budget.
