Carlson Software is releasing its new Carlson Surveyor2, the newest model in its Carlson Surveyor line of data collectors. The Surveyor2 is paired with Carlson’s easy-to-use software to provide a powerful, complete solution for surveying, stakeout, construction layout and GIS mapping.

Designed and manufactured by Juniper Systems, the Carlson Surveyor2 is built to withstand the harshest conditions, with an IP68 rating for dust and water, and superb durability when dropped or exposed to cold, heat or other rugged environments. With minimal increases in weight, it offers greater memory and data storage, a faster, 1.0 GHz processor, and significantly improved Bluetooth range of up to 1,500 feet.

“The Surveyor2 and SurvCE together create an advanced solution for surveying applications, while maintaining simplicity and ease of use,” says Debbie Trolson, geomatics market manager at Juniper Systems. “The Surveyor2 offers significant improvements over its predecessor, providing surveyors with the features they need to perform their work productively and effectively.”

The data collector also features a new QWERTY keyboard with large buttons for easy data entry, enhanced battery power with more than 20 hours of runtime, and a larger, brighter display, providing high visibility in any lighting conditions. The Surveyor2 runs Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5.3 and can be purchased with Carlson SurvCE 4.0, Carlson’s data collection software. SurvCE offers a tab-based menu and advanced graphics for easy-to-use functionality.
