Trimble Surveying Solutions for Utilities
Trimble's surveying solutions addressing the needs of the utilities industry span a broad range of activities including:
Combining the latest in GNSS, optical, and imaging technologies with streamlined software workflows and wireless communications, Trimble solutions help you quickly capture the data you need and turn it into actionable information.
Utility Project Planning
Boundary surveys for easement planning and topographic surveys for distribution network route planning are a few of the many activities needed during project planning for extending utility distribution networks. Trimble's high accuracy GNSS solutions provide rapid and robust positioning capabilities with powerful field software to help you get the job done as efficiently as possible.
Trimble R8 GNSS Receiver with Trimble Access and Trimble Business Center
Boundary surveys for easement planning and topographic surveys for distribution network route planning are a few of the many activities needed during project planning for extending utility distribution networks. Trimble's high accuracy GNSS solutions provide rapid and robust positioning capabilities with powerful field software to help you work productively. The Trimble R8 GNSS receiver makes use of all the available satellite constellations to provide precise results even in difficult GNSS environments. Combined with the powerful surveying tools in the Trimble Access field software and the advanced processing, quality assurance, and adjustment tools in Trimble Business Center office software, you have a powerful set of surveying tools to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
Asset Mapping & Maintenance
Utility companies are seeking higher accuracy asset mapping information, especially for underground assets such as electric and telecom lines, gas pipes, etc. Creating and maintaining digital maps and asset databases with better than "shovel width" accuracy enables utility companies to provide more precise information about underground assets locations when faced with excavation activities near those assets. In some regions, the availability of high accuracy asset mapping information helps utility companies better manage liability issues related to third party damage to these assets.
Trimble Access with Trimble R8 GNSS Receiver and Trimble Business Center
Use the Trimble R8 GNSS to collect centimeter-level positioning information of assets, then record attribute data and even digital images of each point in the Trimble Access field software. All asset information is stored in one database for effortless transfer to Trimble Business Center for QC and analysis before integrating the new or updated information into your GIS.
Trimble Survey Manager on Trimble Tablet with Trimble R8 GNSS Receiver (Europe only)
With Trimble Survey Manager on the Trimble Tablet, users can easily collect high accuracy GIS data in the field and visualize the new or updated information, using the same software in the field as is used in the office. Users can create and load GIS data models and import or export different models to industry standard GIS databases. Coupled with the large screen and ruggedness of the Trimble Tablet and the fast and accurate GNSS positioning of the Trimble R8 GNSS, this system is an ideal solution for the high accuracy utility mapping needs in Europe.
Monitoring dam structure movement is an important element of their maintenance and safety programs. Dam maintenance and monitoring programs include various approaches and techniques, depending on the behavior of the dam over time and the associated risk assessment. Trimble provides monitoring tools to support a broad range of risk mitigation plans, ranging from periodic deformation monitoring and analysis to real-time monitoring and alerting.
Trimble Access Monitoring Module with Trimble S8 Total Station and Trimble 4D Control Standard Office Software
For low risk situations where the dam structure has been very stable and periodic deformation monitoring program is appropriate, Trimble offers an easy to use and easy to learn, specialized Monitoring module in the Trimble Access field software suite. Used in conjunction with the Trimble S8 Total Station, Trimble's most advanced optical platform for surveying and engineering work, you have a field system with the highest levels of field productivity coupled with high precision measurement capabilities. Back in office, Trimble 4D Control Standard software provides powerful data analysis for reviewing structure motion over time, enabling appropriate maintenance and safety actions to be taken.
Trimble 4D Control Advanced Office Software with Trimble S8 Total Station
If dam structure deformation reaches a level warranting more frequent monitoring, Trimble's solutions can be scaled up from post-processed analysis to real-time monitoring. Trimble's real-time monitoring solutions provide continuous 24/7 remote data collection, analysis, and warning alarms to immediately alert personnel to structural movement. At the heart of this system is the Trimble 4D Control Advanced office software, controlling any number of Trimble S8 instruments to remotely collect continuous data for analysis and reporting.
For large or small real-time monitoring projects, the Trimble's complete solution provides unsurpassed performance and total peace of mind.
