Trimble TSC2 Controller Data Collector


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.
