Trimble 5603 DR200+ Total Station
The Trimble 5600 Total Station series gives you access to the best and most productive measuring methods available for every measuring situation for every measuring situation for unassisted operation.

Servo gives you a 30% productivity increase
The 5600 series is equipped with 4-speed servo operation that gives variable speed, faster, smoother and more accurate aiming. Servo is the platform for measurement automation and for further upgrades to increased productivity.

Upgrade to Autolock and the productivity increase is 50%
Autolock™ technology enables semi-robotic operation, with measuring and recording taking place at the total station. The 5600 series seeks out the RMT target (Active Remote Measuring Target), locks to it, and follows it during movement between points. No fine adjustments needed, no focusing, no problems working in the dark (the instrument will locate the target in any situation), and no work-related injuries from constant turning of the total station. In most cases the Autolock feature makes it possible to stake out and gather survey data as fast as the rodman can move.

Upgrade to Robotic and the productivity increase is 80%
Robotic operation offers the same advantages as Autolock—in addition, it allows you to work on your own. Robotic measuring offers more than increased productivity and reduced personnel costs. It also gives higher quality measurements all the control initiation and registering take place at the measuring point, where any errors or discrepancies are quickly identified.

Combine Robotic with DR200+ to double productivity
The long-range Direct Reflex EDM system (DR200+) option on the 5600 series allows you to measure up to 600 meters against a white object and 200 meters against Kodak Grey (the international standard to determine the range of reflectorless total stations). That’s 3.3 times further than any other reflectorless total station! And the range using a single prism is 5.5 kilometers. Combining DR200+ capability with robotic operation results in the ultimate total station.

True Integrated Surveying
There are situations where measuring by GPS is more productive than by using a conventional total station, and vice versa. Trimble Integrated Surveying™ solutions offer you the best of both worlds. Simply move the control unit from one system to the other in a matter of seconds and go on with your survey. The software environment is identical and the data flow seamless.

Trimble ACU Controller
Trimble’s revolutionary ACU controller incorporates a sophisticated graphical display and Bluetooth™ technology. The result is a cable-free or on-board data collection solution that gives you even more flexibility than ever before.
The ACU is specifically designed to attach to Trimble field sensors—it simply clips on to your total stations, your robotic rovers, or your RTK GPS rover poles—whatever you are working with. The ACU provides a single user interface to the most advanced on-board applications available.

Graphical display
The easy-to-use, color touch-screen display provides you with ultimate control over your data. Instant results make light work of visualization, navigation, data selection, positioning, and stakeout. Errors and omissions are greatly reduced because you can thoroughly check your data in the field.

Built-in Bluetooth capability gives you a short-range cable-free solution at the pole—set up is quicker and cable hassles become a thing of the past.

Trimble 5603 Total Station

The ACU controller provides a common user interface for all your fieldwork regardless of the type of measurement technique or sensor used. The Trimble ACU is attachable to the “hot shoe” on the Trimble 5600 or 3600 Total Stations, Trimble 5600 robotic rover, and the Trimble 5800 RTK Rover pole.
USB, serial, and ethernet communications are provided as standard, giving you fast and flexible data transfer options. In addition, the ACU is Internet-capable, with an external wireless modem you can easily send and receive files while you’re in the field.

Choice of software
The Trimble ACU offers you a choice of software: Trimble Survey Pro software from TDS**, and Trimble Survey Controller™ software. In addition, the Windows CE operating system supports other specialized application software.

Built for the field
Trimble ACU is powered by the instrument, or the robotic/RTK rod holder. The internal battery provides one hour of stand-by operation when detached from the instrument or rover. Environmentally rated to IPX4, and able to withstand a drop of up to 1 meter (3.3 feet) onto a hard surface, the ACU is rugged enough for any job.
In addition the heated screen system allows for operation at extreme temperatures from –20° C (–4° F) to +55° C (122° F).
Dedicated instrument control keys provide rapid access to frequently used functions and minimize keystrokes during data, code, or attribute entry.
Both the color display and keyboard are illuminated so that you can keep working in low-light conditions. In full sunlight or total darkness the ACU is an all weather, all visibility controller for any time of the day or night.

Wide range of applications
The ACU is ideal for a wide range of survey and measurement applications, including:

  • Topographic surveys
  • High-accuracy GIS
  • Engineering
  • Construction
  • Architecture
  • Asset Management
  • Mapping
  • Cadastral
