Juniper Systems Announces Partnership with Topcon Positioning Systems

Logan, Utah - Juniper Systems is proud to announce its recent business partnership with Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS). As part of this partnership, Juniper Systems will manufacture the Topcon Tesla, the newest data collector in Topcon’s full lineup of rugged handheld computers and solutions for the survey industry.

“Juniper Systems is very excited to embark on this new partnership with Topcon Positioning Systems. We believe the Tesla is exactly the rugged data collector that the surveying world has been waiting for, and what better company than industry-leading Topcon to carry, distribute, and promote it as such,” said DeVon Labrum, director of sales and marketing at Juniper Systems.

“One of the major determining factors in partnering with Juniper Systems was the history of quality that Juniper’s products are known for,” said Scott Langbein, senior manager for TPS product management. “We’re proud to put our name on a data collector that we know will live up to its high quality, ultra-rugged standards.”

The Tesla features the advantages of both a rugged handheld and a tablet PC, without the disadvantages of either. “Its almost six-inch, ultra-bright, backlit LCD screen ensures that bigger is definitely better,” Langbein said. “This is an incredibly easy-to-learn and easy-to-operate controller . . . .” The Tesla runs the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 operating system and operates seamlessly with Topcon’s software suite, including Pocket 3D, Layout, and soon-to-be-released Magnet.

As with all other Juniper Systems rugged handhelds, the Tesla is built to IP67 standards for water and dust, and tested to MIL-STD-810G standards for water, humidity, sand and dust, vibration, altitude, shock, and temperature. The Tesla has two battery slots for 16 long hours of continued use, and the batteries are warm-swappable in the field when power loss is not an option.

Three different Tesla models are available: the Standard, Geo, and Geo 3G. All models include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology, the Geo and Geo 3G add a 3.2MP camera and GPS receiver, and the Geo 3G tops it off with an integrated 3G data modem, network approved by AT&T.
