Trimble Introduced TSX and Leveling Modules for TDS Survey Pro 4.0

Trimble introduced the Trimble Systems Extension (TSX) and Leveling modules for the Tripod Data Systems (TDS) Survey Pro 4.0 field data collection software package. The TSX module is available in two configurations: the Total Station (TS) option supports robotic total stations, and the Integrated Surveying (IS) option supports surveying with either robotic total stations or GPS instruments. With the TS option, Survey Pro users can now more easily aim a robotic total station remotely from a Trimble TSCe or Recon data collector. Survey Pro 4.0 has a fine-turning routine with a unique graphical interface, which allows for remote aiming for even, precise turns and a new graphical tap-to-turn feature that enables turn commands by simply tapping on the map. In the IS option, a new Start Survey Wizard in Survey Pro takes users through a streamlined GPS setup procedure for easier, more reliable GPS connections. Digital cell phones can now be used in place of a radio data link for GPS communications. The Leveling module for TDS Survey Pro 4.0 provides direct support for Trimble DiNi series digital levels and in-field data storage to the Trimble controller. The TSX module will ship with the Trimble TSCe and Recon controller kits. Trimble Survey Pro has only been discontinued with the release of TDS Survey Pro with TSX on the TSCe and Recon.
