Sokkia Releases SHC500 Field Controller

LIVERMORE, Calif. – February 11, 2016 – Sokkia introduces an addition to its line of field controllers for construction and surveying applications — the SHC500. It is designed to provide operators a compact handheld option with numerous features and benefits, including a 4.3-inch touchscreen display and optional 5 MP camera with built-in LED flash.

The SHC500 is designed for the professional operating MAGNET® Field, Site and Layout software. The data controller works with all Sokkia GNSS receivers and total stations, and meets or exceeds all field application requirements.

Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products, said, “With a sunlight-readable screen, even in bright conditions the controller is perfect for modern project sites.  It is built rugged — waterproof up to one meter with an IP68 rating — securing the unit and optional built-in LED flash camera and 8GB flash storage.

“The SHC500’s optional internal cellular modem allows operators to send and receive data through the MAGNET suite of software solutions. Field crews can easily communicate when projects need to be changed or if important data is required back in the office,” said Kerwin.

Additional features include standard Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi connectivity, 23 control buttons with numeric input, and a capacitive-touch interface.
