Sokkia Introduces SHC5000 Field Controller

LIVERMORE, Calif. – February 3, 2016 — Sokkia introduces the latest addition to its line of field controllers for use with construction and surveying applications — the SHC5000. Operating MAGNET® Field, Site and Layout software, the newest field controller is designed to provide a more versatile and faster handheld computer for GNSS receivers and total stations — with the largest screen size in the Sokkia line.

“The SHC5000 boasts a 7-inch sunlight-viewable screen, which makes it the largest in our line of field controllers,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “The display’s capacitive touch interface comes with finger, glove, small tip stylus and water capable options.  Operators can change the screen from portrait to landscape when viewing maps or drawings, depending on which orientation is preferable.”

The SHC5000 comes with two built-in cameras. One uses an 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash that is designed for uses such as field photography. The second has a 2 MP camera on the front side of the unit for purposes such as video meetings. 

Additional features include 64GB of flash storage, an optional 4G LTE cellular modem, internal GPS navigation, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi, and a battery life of 10-plus hours.
