Trimble R8 Model 3 GPS

Trimble R8 Model 3 Receiver

The Trimble R8 GNSS delivers the latest advancements in R-Track™
technology, designed to deliver reliable, precise positioning
performance . In challenging areas for GNSS surveying, such as tree
cover or limited sky view, Trimble R-Track provides unmatched tracking
performance of GNSS satellite signals .

Trimble R-Track with Signal Prediction™ compensates for intermittent or
marginal RTK correction signals, enabling extended precision operation
after an RTK signal is interrupted .

The new CMRx communications protocol provides unprecedented correction
compression for optimized bandwidth and full utilization all of the
satellites in view, giving you the most reliable positioning
performance .

Featuring the Trimble Maxwell™ 6 chip, the Trimble R8 GNSS advances the
industry with more memory and more GNSS channels . Trimble delivers
business confidence with a sound GNSS investment for today and into the
future .

Broad GNSS support
The Trimble R8 GNSS supports a wide range of satellite signals,
including GPS L2C and L5 and GLONASS L1/L2 signals . In addition,
Trimble is committed to the next generation of modernized GNSS
configurations by providing Galileo-compatible products available for
customers well in advance of Galileo system availability 1,2 . In
support of this plan, the new Trimble R8 GNSS is capable of tracking
the experimental GIOVE-A and GIOVE-B test satellites for signal
evaluation and test purposes .

Flexible System Design
The Trimble R8 GNSS receiver combines the most comprehensive
feature set into an integrated and flexible system for demanding
surveying applications . The Trimble R8 GNSS includes a built-in
transmit/receive UHF radio, enabling ultimate flexibility for rover or
base operation . As a base station, the internal NTRIP caster provides
you with customized access 3 to base station corrections via the
internet .

Trimble’s exclusive, Web UI™ eliminates travel requirements for routine
monitoring of base station receivers . Now you can assess the health
and status of base receivers and perform remote configurations from the
office . Likewise, you can download post-processing data through Web UI
and save additional trips out to the field .

Enabling The Connected Site
Pair the speed and accuracy of the Trimble R8 GNSS receiver with
flexibility and collaboration tools of Trimble Access™ software .
Trimble Access brings field and office teams closer by enabling data
sharing and collaboration in a secure, web-based environment . With
optional streamlined workflows, Trimble Access further empowers
surveyors and survey teams for success . Now it is easier than ever to
realize the potential of the Trimble Connected Site . Connecting the
right tools, techniques, services and relationships enables surveying
businesses to achieve more every day

Trimble TSC2 Controller Data


The Trimble® TSC2® Controller is an advanced handheld computer
especially designed for Trimble optical and GPS surveying systems.
With the Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 5.0 software operating system, the
TSC2 controller runs your choice of powerful Trimble field software.
Add specialized applications to the standard Microsoft Outlook Mobile,
Excel Mobile, Word Mobile, Power Point Mobile and Internet Explorer
programs, and the TSC2 controller becomes a powerhouse of field and
office functions on one rugged business device.

Every innovative feature on the TSC2 controller is designed to make
your job easier. Clearly view background maps and check work on the
vibrant color graphic display for greater data control and confidence.
Use the full alphanumeric keyboard, or quickly select software options
using the touch screen.The unique TSC2 controller changeable cap
enables the use of removable memory or third-party media, such as GPRS,
GPS, camera, and product scanner functions. Extend your data logging
capabilities and experience a major leap in productivity.


Eliminate cable hassles and expedite setup with integrated Bluetooth®
wireless technology. When the TSC2 controller is used with a Trimble R8
or 5800 GPS system, the rover is 100% cable free for unsurpassed
convenience and ease of use. The internal 2.4 GHz radio option is ideal
for use with a robotic system such as the Trimble S6 total station.
Using the expandable media function, a GSM/GPRS modem can add full
wireless communication to the Internet in the field.Transfer data in
your office over a wireless 802.11 LAN—again, no cables are required.
You can also use hotspots to quickly and securely share data with your
office from remote locations.

Choose the method of data transfer that suits your situation. Using an
external modem such as a cell phone with Bluetooth, send and receive
files over the Internet from the field: you don’t need to drive back to
the office. In the office, internal 802.11 technology provides wireless
connection to your network. The TSC2 controller also provides USB and
serial RS232 communication options; data can be transferred to a PC or
another TSC2 controller using a cable, Bluetooth, CompactFlash, or
Secure Digital memory card media.


The TSC2 controller is central to Integrated Surveying™ from Trimble.
With an application such as the Trimble Survey Controller™ software
onboard, collect and manage both GPS and optical data in one Job file
simply by switching the TSC2 controller between sensors. Standardize on
one flexible controller for maximized investment. And your survey team
only needs to know one interface. When field work is complete, simply
transfer the Job file to your office using the communication method
that suits your needs.
