Original Press Release
New Trimble TSC3 Controller Makes Construction Operations Easier
Press release date: March 4, 2011
-- Integrated communications, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a cellular modem, keep data flowing between field instruments, job crews and other stakeholders--for instant connections to the office and clients. The integrated 3G modem also can provide instant access to the Internet for receiving base station corrections as well as emailing and synching files with the Connected Community.
-- The 5 megapixel digital camera makes it easy to collect site information and visually record site conditions for documentation and quality control. No extra devices or batteries are required, and images are automatically geotagged and associated with measured points for easy identification. 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 Using the two-way data capability reduces delays and rework associated with using outdated information and synching data only at the end of the workday.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. The Trimble TSC3 controller is available now through Trimble's worldwide SITECH® Technology Dealer channel and the Heavy and Highway Construction Distribution Channel.
