Powerful And Flexible
The Trimble® S6 Total Station provides the power and flexibility required by today’s Surveying Professionals. With the industry’s most advanced technology and available feature set, the Trimble S6 Total Station will meet the changing needs of your business, allowing your investment to go further.

Trimble Vision Technology
Now available with optional Trimble VISION™ technology, the Trimble S6 gives you the power to see everything the instrument sees without a trip back to the tripod. Direct your survey with live video images on the controller. Now you are free to capture measurements, to prism or reflectorless surfaces, remotely, and with point-and-click efficiency.


The on-board camera integrates surveyed data with the live scene images, so you can verify the work that you’ve done before leaving the job site. Calibrated photo documentation provides customers with deliverables they know they can trust.

Trimble DR Plus Technology
Trimble DR Plus™ range measurement technology provides extended range of Direct Reflex measurement without a prism to exceptionally long range distances. Hard-to-reach or unsafe targets are no obstacle to the Trimble S6. Trimble DR Plus, combined with MagDrive™, creates unmatched capability for quick and safe measurements, without compromising on accuracy.

Magdrive Servo Technology
The Trimble S6 Total Station redefines surveying instrument performance with unsurpassed integration of servos, angle sensors and measurement technology. The instrument’s advanced error compensation provides fast, accurate measurement every time. With smooth, silent MagDrive servo motors, the Trimble S6 offers exceptional speed.

Trimble Surepoint Accuracy Assurance
The Trimble S6 Total Station aims and stays on target through windy weather, vibrations, handling, and sinkage. Trimble SurePoint™ technology enables the Trimble S6 to actively correct for unwanted movement ensuring accurate pointing and measurement every time. Reduce aiming error, avoid costly re-measurement and be confident in your results with Trimble SurePoint.

With its exclusive MultiTrack™ technology and Target ID capabilities, surveyors can choose the type of target, passive or active, that best suits the jobsite conditions and be confident that they will find and lock to the correct target.

Eliminate Search Time With GPS Search
With GPS Search the Trimble S6 locks onto a prism in just seconds. Using a consumer grade GPS card with Bluetooth receiver or your survey grade GNSS in a Trimble I.S. rover configuration, GPS Search uses GPS positioning at the robotic rod to locate or reacquire targets rapidly. With GPS Search, waiting for target search becomes a thing of the past.

Integrated Surveying
Put the equipment in your truck or van to the best possible use by combining your GNSS with your robotic rod into a Trimble I.S. Rover™. In clear sky, enjoy the high productivity of GNSS measurements. In obstructed areas, Trimble Access seamlessly switches to optical measurements. Or collect both GNSS and optical data simultaneously for redundant results. With the Trimble I.S. Rover, you have the freedom to use the best tool for the jobsite conditions, optimizing your productivity.

Trimble CU Controller

An Innovative Windows CE .NET Device
The Trimble® CU controller is an advanced detachable control unit especially designed for Trimble optical and GPS surveying systems*1*. On its Windows® CE.Net operating system, the Trimble CU controller runs your choice of powerful Trimble field software*2*, plus other specialized Windows software as needed.

Smart Hardware
Every innovative feature on the Trimble CU controller is designed to make your job easier. Clearly view background maps and check work on the color graphic display for greater data control and confidence. The 1 GB of memory lets you take all your base data (point lists, background maps) into the field.

Access frequent functions via dedicated instrument control keys. Quickly select software options using the touch screen.

Trimble S6 Total Station

Integrated Bluetooth Wireless Technology
Eliminate the hassle of cables and expedite setup with integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology. When the Trimble CU controller is used on an instrument such as the Trimble R6 or Trimble S6 rover, the system is 100% cable free for unsurpassed convenience and ease of use.

Flexible Communication Options
Choose the method of data transfer that suits your situation. Using an external modem such as a cellphone with Bluetooth, you can send and receive files over the Internet while in the field: you don’t need to drive back to the office. When in the office, the Trimble CU docking station provides fast data transfer to your computer. The Trimble CU also provides USB and serial communication options.

Data can be transferred to a PC or another Trimble CU using a cable, Bluetooth, a CompactFlash Card reader, or a USB memory device.

Built For The Field Whatever The Conditions
The Trimble CU controller is rugged enough for any job in any weather. It holds an environmental rating of IP55 and operates in extreme temperatures of –30 ºC to +55 ºC (–22 ºF to +131 ºF). It can also withstand a pole drop of 1.0 m (3.3 ft) onto a hard surface. The display and keyboard are illuminated, so you can finish any job fast even in low lighting.

The Trimble CU controller receives power from the optical instrument or the especially designed holder, which attaches to a robotic or GPS rover pole.

One Controller, One Software, One Interface, One Job File
The Trimble CU controller is central to Integrated Surveying from Trimble. With software such as the Trimble Survey Controller™ software onboard, collect GPS and optical data in one Job file simply by switching the Trimble CU 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. A surveyor’s work flow has never been easier.

*1* The Trimble CU Controller is designed to support Trimble’s latest surveying systems, including the Trimble R8 GNSS System, Trimble S6 Total Station, Trimble S8 Total Station, and Trimble VX Spatial station. The Trimble CU also supports the Trimble 3600/5500/5600 optical instruments via the Trimble CU Adapter.
