SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 17, 2012-Trimble introduced the next generation of its Trimble GPS Pathfinder family-the Trimble Pro 6H and Pro 6T receivers for GIS and mobile mapping. The Trimble Pro series with advanced features allows mobile workers to configure a solution for a wide range of applications, delivering increased flexibility in professional GIS data collection. The series offers a new streamlined form-factor and dramatic productivity improvements in difficult GNSS environments with Trimble Floodlight technology.
The modular Trimble Pro series receiver allows users to
choose their setup configurations:
for use with Trimble data collection devices such as the Trimble Juno or Nomad G
series handhelds, or Yuma tablet computer, the Trimble Pro series can also be
used with other tablets and handhelds with NMEA output
or postprocessed GIS workflows
receiver can be deployed in a backpack, on a pole or mounted on a vehicle
• Two models
are available-the Trimble Pro 6H delivers decimeter accuracy, while the Pro 6T
is the submeter model for standard GIS applications
“With the availability of the new Pro series receivers,
data collection professionals now have access to the productivity-enhancements
of Floodlight technology in both integrated and modular configurations,” said
Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble’s GIS Data Collection Division.
“While some prefer the convenience of an integrated, all-in-one handheld,
others will appreciate the Pro series’ flexibility to choose from a range of
data collection devices such as a high-resolution tablet or lightweight Trimble
Improved Performance in Tough GNSS Environments with
Trimble Floodlight Technology
For maximum productivity in high-accuracy applications,
Trimble Floodlight technology allows users to collect decimeter accuracy data
in the toughest GNSS environments. Buildings and trees can cause satellite
shadow and limit the environments where high-accuracy GNSS data collection can
be performed. Unique to Trimble, Floodlight technology combines a range of
innovative techniques to increase the availability of positions and boost
accuracy in areas affected by satellite shadow. Using Floodlight technology,
the Pro series can keep teams productive without compromising on accuracy.
Users can work with fewer disruptions and ensure better data, faster data
collection and higher field efficiency.
Built for Intensive Data Collection Campaigns
Trimble Pro series receivers are rugged and built to
withstand the rigors of long hours in tough outdoor conditions, yet optimized
for high-accuracy GIS data collection workflows. For applications such as
utilities inspections and timber stand valuations, Trimble Pro receivers
provide long battery life and tough construction for dependable service over
the course of rigorous data collection projects.
With its IP65 rating, the receivers offer reliable
operation, even after prolonged exposure to water and dust. An integrated
antenna reduces the complexity of the system for fast setup and swift data
collection campaigns. Field workers can be up and running with minimal
training, saving time and money. Combined with a Trimble handheld solution and
Trimble TerraSync™ software, the complete system provides dedicated field
workflows to simplify data collection and improve integration with the GIS for
total workflow improvements.
The new Trimble Pro 6H and 6T receivers are available now
from Trimble's worldwide Mapping & GIS authorized distribution channel. For
