Trimble Geo XH 6000 Series Geographic Data Collector

Trimble Geo XH 6000 Series

Trimble GeoExplorer 6000 Series GeoXH

The Trimble® GeoExplorer® 6000 series takes GNSS productivity to a
whole new level. Bringing together the essential functionality for
high-accuracy field work in one device, the GeoXH™ handheld delivers
real-time decimeter (10 cm / 4 inch) accuracy positioning and high
photo capture.

Together with the latest field software enhancements and GNSS
innovations—including Trimble Floodlight™ satellite shadow reduction
technology—the GeoXH handheld establishes a new standard for GNSS
system performance and handheld data capture.

Decimeter accuracy without the wait
For field workers recording the location of buried infrastructure,
distinguishing between closely spaced assets, or relocating buried
equipment, the GeoXH handheld delivers the accuracy and speed required
to ensure that the work of recording new asset locations or navigating
back to previously captured assets is fast and reliable.

Floodlight satellite shadow reduction
Trees and buildings create satellite shadows, limiting the environments
where reliable high- accuracy GNSS data collection can be performed.
Using the innovative Trimble Floodlight satellite shadow reduction
technology, the GeoXH handheld continues to deliver productive, usable
positioning data in areas where legacy GNSS receiver systems cannot.

With Floodlight technology, the GeoXH receiver can compute positions
even with very weak satellite signals. Floodlight technology increases
the number of positions that are gathered in difficult locations, and
boosts accuracy in those places where normally only low accuracy data
is available. With the GeoXH handheld, field crews can now work with
fewer disruptions, meaning better data, faster, at less cost.

Never-seen-before display performance
The GeoXH handheld includes a sunlight-optimized display designed
specifically for outdoor operation. It maintains exceptional clarity in
all outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Text is crisp and
easy to read. Background maps and photos are rich and vibrant. At 4.2″
(10.7 cm), the display is also big, so the touch panel is spacious and
easy to control.

Work online, anywhere, cable-free
With the GeoXH handheld, wireless connectivity options including
cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® technology ensure that field workers can
remain in contact with the office and each other, even from remote

Bluetooth technology also enables wireless connection to other external
devices such as Bluetooth-enabled laser range finders, barcode
scanners, or underground pipe locators.

High quality photo capture
A photograph is often the best way to capture information about an
asset, event, or site. The GeoXH handheld includes a 5 megapixel
autofocus camera with geo-tagging capability. The camera can be
controlled by the TerraSync™ software and other third-party
applications, so photo capture and linking of images to GIS features is
seamless and simple to integrate with existing data capture workflows.

Designed for work
The GeoExplorer 6000 series was designed with a single goal in
mind—delivering a high-accuracy handheld GNSS system that works faster,
longer, and in more places than any other.

The Lithium-Ion battery provides up to 8 hours of GNSS operation on a
single charge, and can be swapped on-the-go without shutting down the
device—enabling near-continuous operation and minimizing field worker

The GeoXH handheld is powered by a super-fast OMAP 3503 series
processor and 256 MB RAM. With 2 GB of internal storage and the
capacity to add an additional 32 GB via SDHC card, the GeoXH handheld
has the capacity and power needed to work with high resolution maps and
the most complex datasets.

The fully ruggedized IP65 construction is designed to withstand the
harshest environments. Wherever field workers go, they can take the
GeoXH handheld with the confidence that the equipment can handle the
toughest conditions.

These smart design features combine with unprecedented accuracy and
productivity to deliver the ultimate high performance handheld
field solution.

*1* SBAS (Satellite Based Augmentation System). Includes WAAS available
in North America only, EGNOS available in Europe only and MSAS
available in Japan only.
*2* HRMS refers to Horizontal Root Mean Squared accuracy, 1-sigma
(68%). Except in conditions where most GNSS signals are affected by
trees, or buildings, or other objects. The following factors increase
the availability of specified H-Star accuracy: availability of GPS
& GLONASS data at the base station(s) used for corrections, longer
elapsed time tracking uninterrupted L1/L2 carrier phase data, use of
the optional external Tornado antenna, tracking of more satellites with
L2 measurements, shorter distance to the base station(s), and use of
more (than one) base stations for postprocessing. Specified H-Star
accuracy can normally be achieved for baseline lengths of 100 km or
less. H-Star accuracy is typically achieved within 2 minutes. 45 minute
carrier postprocessed accuracy is limited to data collected within 10
km of the base station. Except when using VRS corrections, accuracy
varies with proximity to base station by +1 ppm for code postprocessing
and real-time. Carrier postprocessed accuracy varies with proximity to
base station by +2 ppm.
*3* Tested by Trimble with default system settings at 21°C ambient.
Actual run time will vary with conditions of use.
*4* 3.5G edition handhelds only. The GeoXH 3.5G edition handheld is
PTCRB certified and can operate on supported networks that do not
require carrier certification. Consult with your local reseller for
more information.
*5* Bluetooth and Wi-Fi type approvals are country specific.
GeoExplorer 6000 series handhelds have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi approval in
the U.S. and in most European countries. For further information please
consult your local reseller.
*6* NMEA output is an optional upgrade.
