The new Leica Zeno 5 is said to be an entrylevel, rugged personal digital assistant (PDA) for organisations that require a durable compact device with integrated modem and high-sensitive GPS.
The Leica Geosystems technology supports field workers by combining a mobile phone with asset collection and management capabilities. The Leica Zeno 5 is said to be shock resistant, withstands a drop from to 1.8m, and is protected against water and dust. The large 9.4cm screen is optimised for sunlight readability and is said to maintain exceptional clarity in outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Field workers can collect features and descriptive information using the in-built, high-sensitive GPS data, attach photos to the collected assets, and synchronise, with high-speed up- and download times, with the office using a single and compact device, all in a full working day without recharging the Zeno 5.
Johannes Hotz, senior product manager at Leica Geosystems, said: “Together with our Zeno Field application, the Zeno 5 provides an easy-to-use, streamlined GIS data collection and management solution. The Zeno Connect, as stand-alone application or SDK, enables our software partners to combine their industry specific solution with our high-accuracy data collection solutions.”
