Topcon Introduces T-18 Handheld Controller
Topcon’s T-18 handheld controller is designed to drive geopositioning, construction, mapping and vertical construction applications. It includes a 3.7-inch sunlight-readable display with a 1GHz processor, 1GB of internal storage, and up to 10 hours of battery life. The T-18 features a 3.5G cellular modem for connectivity with Topcon MAGNET solutions for sending and receiving data to the company cloud account. The cellular option makes it easy to communicate with field crews when projects need to be changed or if important data is required back in the office. Additionally, the modem can be used for RTK (real-time kinematic) correction services, Topcon says. Additional key features include standard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as an IP65 rating for dust and water protection in demanding jobsite conditions.
