Livermore, Calif. – A powerful, compact and affordable field controller  – the FC-120 – has been unveiled by Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS).

The FC-120 is available with TopSURV, Pocket Layout or Pocket 3D - Topcon's survey, layout and 3D site management software packages.

Mark Contino, vice president of survey sales, said, “The FC-120 has an innovative design that packs all the power of the FC-200 into a smaller data collector with a large array of capabilities.  Its operating system, Windows CE.NET 5.0, provides a field-proven operating environment that is well known and accepted in the surveying and construction industries.  And with a 520MHz processor, the FC-120 provides the best balance of performance and power consumption.

“With the FC-120, Topcon has designed a compact instrument with advanced software functions that are easy to use such as a large key pop-up keyboard for data entry,” Contino said. 

The FC-120 provides Compact Flash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD) card slots.  “We can’t know what might be available in five years for a CF or SD card slot but the FC-120 is ready for it.  The card access is a superior design element.  It’s a simple, yet reliable access door allowing a user to quickly add or change memory cards.” Contino said.

“The FC-120 is a valuable job site tool available at an affordable price,” said Murray Lodge, vice president of construction sales.  “It’s a rugged controller and with its advanced features, and the fact that it’s easy to learn to use and operate, the FC-120 fits the project needs for any operation.”

Features of the FC-120 include:

  • 520 MHz XScale processor;
  • Windows CE.NET 5.0 operating system;
  • Compact Flash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD) media card slots for memory expansion and connectivity options;
  • Built-in wireless Bluetooth connectivity;
  • Removable, Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries;
  • Ultra-bright TFT color touch screen display; and
  • 64 MB SDRAM, 128 MB or 256 MB memory.
