A superior design
for fatigue-free

When Trimble developed the new TSC7, we created multiple options before choosing an innovative, streamlined design. Dual ergonomic grip zones enable easy, safe handling and reduce fatigue while freeing one hand to type or carry another tool. The hand straps are easy to use and offer maximum comfort. An improved stylus stores inside the unit’s housing and includes a lanyard that can be attached to either side of the unit. The tilted keypad and screen face the user for easy viewing and protect the screen if dropped. And the redesigned pole mount is easy to clip on, take off and store.

When you work with the new TSC7, you can send and receive emails, access the Internet and hold face-to-face discussions via apps such as Skype, all while in the field. It’s made possible by the seven-inch display and two cameras—one field facing for documentation; the other front facing for communication. The rear camera has a flash. The front camera is supported by a noise-cancelling microphone.

Every element of the Trimble TSC7 is designed to make life in the field easy. That’s even true of the batteries. They’re hot swappable; replacement takes about 30 seconds and you don’t lose connections to your survey instruments while doing so. The batteries keep you posted too: two LED light displays tell you how much power you have remaining. You can replace them under all types of weather conditions, no tool required.
