Lightweight, Rugged Trimble Site Tablet Enables Better Decision Making On The Construction Site

Stocks in this article: TRMB

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) introduced today the new Trimble ® Site Tablet, a lightweight, rugged and fully connected field computer for construction applications. The new Trimble Site Tablet and on-board Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software provide real-time data to construction professionals for visualizing cut/fill levels, calculating material volumes and communicating work orders to enable better decision making. It is designed for daily outdoor use on the construction site with advanced connectivity to eliminate delays associated with driving data updates from the office and jobsite.

The announcement was made at Trimble Dimensions 2012.

Connected Controller

The Trimble Site Tablet is an integral component of the Trimble Connected Site ® solution, with built-in cellular modem and communications features to keep data flowing to and from the construction site. With real-time information, the site supervisor can make quicker, more informed decisions. A grade checker can receive the design model, create new measurements and then send the measurement and stakeout results back to the office for review. Design changes originating in the office can also be sent to the Trimble Site Tablet so field crews are rapidly updated with current information. All of this is accomplished without personnel leaving the site or their desk, dramatically increasing productivity and reducing costs.

Using the Windows ® 7 Professional operating system, the Trimble Site Tablet also allows users to work with the same documents and software programs they would in the office, including Business Center – HCE software powered by Trimble.

Rugged Inside and Out

The Trimble Site Tablet is rugged and built to withstand the daily abuse of construction work, but it does not add extra weight to achieve its toughness. It meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for drops, vibration and humidity; and with an IP65 rating, it is protected against dust and water. The full-color, seven-inch screen uses a Gorilla ® Glass display that is scratch and impact resistant.

New Direct Sunlight Readable Touchscreen Display

The display also features a new dual-technology system created specifically to enhance sunlight readability for outside work. No matter how bright or direct the glare on the jobsite, the Trimble Site Tablet is clear and easy-to-read. A multi-touch capacitive touchscreen allows users to type, pan, and zoom with fingers, a stylus or capacitive gloves.
