Trimble has announced the launch of next-generation mechanical total stations for land surveyors, the C5 and C3. They are designed for cadastral surveys, topographic surveys and stakeout applications.

"For many of our customers, mechanical total stations are indispensable tools for managing the daily workload,” says 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 Trimble C5 and Trimble C3 mechanical total stations come standard with autofocus technology and premium-quality Nikon optics. This 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.

The new C-Series total stations integrate seamlessly with Trimble's field and office software. With Trimble Access software, surveyors 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.
