Trimble Adds New Track Clearance Scanning System To Its Railway Portfolio

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today a new addition to its Railway Solutions portfolio—the Trimble® GEDO Scan System. The latest trolley system is lightweight, flexible and capable of measuring and documenting the clearance envelope for tunnels, station platforms and assets such as signals, bridges and walls to improve the safety of railway operations worldwide.

The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

The GEDO Scan System provides accurate as-built survey documentation and clearance information for railway track maintenance and modernization. The trolley system's lightweight design is ideally suited for projects where the track is under traffic or the operator is working alone. With smooth data flow from the office to field, GEDO Scan Software provides enhanced processing for track clearance applications.

"Trimble continues to expand its portfolio of railway solutions. We recently introduced a flexible GEDO CE Trolley Systems that adapts to work on various rail gauges," said Ron Bisio, general manager of Trimble's Railway Solutions Business. "Now, with the introduction of the latest system for track clearance scanning applications, the GEDO Systems can deliver a wider range of applications to enable users to increase productivity and minimize track occupation while improving the safety of railway operations."

The basic Trimble GEDO Scan System consists of the Trimble GEDO CE 2.0 Trolley System, Trimble TX5 3D Scanner, Trimble S8 Total Station, Trimble TSC3 Controller, and the Trimble GEDO Scan Field and Office Software. The system is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2013 from Trimble's Railway Solutions distribution network. For more information, visit:  http://www.trimble.com/rail.
