The Trimble T7 Tablet is optimised for use with Trimble Siteworks Software, survey software tailored for construction workflows
Trimble is now offering its T7 Tablet, a rugged, lightweight and versatile device for construction surveying applications. The unit features the Trimble Siteworks Software for construction surveying, allowing it to provide real-time data to visualise cut/fill levels, calculate material volumes, check grade and communicate work orders. This can allow users to to improve productivity and decision-making.
Scott Crozier, general manager for Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction Division said, “Surveyors, supervisors and inspectors can complete tasks with less downtime, combining Trimble reliability with the flexibility to adapt to a variety of configurations and jobsite conditions.”
The unit features a sunlight readable touchscreen that supports pinch, tap and slide gestures and a digital keyboard. The device runs the Windows 10 Professional software and an Intel Pentium 64-bit quad-core processor. The processor and operating system are said to make it easy to process data in spreadsheets and run office software programs. Using third-party apps, front- and rear-facing cameras allow contractors to video conference from the field for on-the-job support and capture high-definition videos and images.
The Trimble T7 Tablet is said to be built to withstand daily construction work in various weather conditions, while remaining lightweight. It meets stringent MIL-STD-810G for drops, vibration, immersion and temperature extremes and with IP65 and IP68 ratings, is sealed against water and dust. The screen uses a Gorilla Glass display that is scratch and impact resistant.
Optional, user-exchangeable Trimble EMPOWER modules make the Trimble T7 Tablet versatile for a variety of applications. The Trimble EMPOWER Platform allows users to customise their mobile computing solution to their workflow.
Siteworks Software features an interface said to be optimised for ease-of-use and productivity. The release of the T7 increases the available hardware configuration options for Siteworks users.
