BERLIN, Sept. 26, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced the release of the Trimble® C5 and Trimble C3, the next generation of mechanical total stations to support land survey professionals with their cadastral survey, topographic survey and stakeout needs. The new Trimble C-Series mechanical total stations enhance the Trimble portfolio with new productivity boosting features that make everyday field work easier and faster.
The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2017, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.
The Trimble C5 and Trimble C3 mechanical 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 underscores our commitment to all types of surveying customers and a wide variety of applications."
The new C-Series total stations integrate seamlessly with Trimble's industry-leading field and office software. With Trimble Access™ software, users can harness the full potential of the C-Series 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. In the office, Trimble Business Center enables users to quickly plan and generate customer deliverables. With a variety of modules to streamline work in both the field and the office, users are able to meet a wide range of surveying challenges with Trimble C-series total stations.
The Trimble C-Series of mechanical total stations is expected to be available from Trimble's global distribution network during the fourth quarter of 2017. Standard total station accessories are also available.
