California, USA, 22 May 2007: Trimble introduced two new products on May 22 as part of its Connected Site model the TrimbleR7 System with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) capabilities and the Trimble MultiTrack Target for both passive and active optical targeting.
Trimble R7 GNSS System:
The Trimble R7 GNSS System is a multi-channel, multi-frequency GNSS receiver and UHF radio in one compact rugged unit. Powered by R-Track technology, an enhanced Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) engine, the Trimble R7 GNSS now supports both the next-generation GPS L2C and L5 signals and GLONASS L1/L2 signals. The Trimble R7 GNSS includes Bluetooth capability for wireless connection to a Trimble controller, such as the Trimble TSC2 Controller.
The Trimble R7 GNSS System is designed to support their original Integrated Surveying solution. Surveyors can combine GPS and optical data in one job file in powerful field software such as Trimble Survey Controller software. They can then transfer the job file to Trimble office software, such as Trimble Business Center, for processing.
Trimble MultiTrack Target:
The Trimble MultiTrack Target is a target designed for the Trimble S6 Total Station and Trimble VX Spatial Station can operate as a normal passive prism as well as an active target.
With the Trimble MultiTrack Target users can find and lock to the correct target. Nearby reflective surfaces, including road signs, cars, warning vests and other on-site prisms, do not impact tracking during surveys. Active tracking also offers longer range, and the 360 degree active LED rings ensure the correct target is tracked from any angle.
