Trimble Site Positioning System Essentials Kit Offers Affordable, Easy-to-Use GNSS Solution

The Essentials Kit is comprised of the new Trimble Site Mobile controller, Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software and Trimble SPS985L GNSS Smart Antenna for a complete GPS positioning solution. Using GPS, a grade checker or site engineer can check a grade, slope or alignment more accurately and in less time than with traditional construction survey methods.

“The Trimble Essentials Kit is an exciting new addition to our positioning portfolio,” said Elwyn McLachlan, business area director for Trimble Site Positioning Systems. “Budget-conscious contractors can realize a quick return on investment by giving more personnel on the job site access to technology, enabling more productive and efficient field crews.”

New Hardware and Software, Same Trimble Quality
The slim, lightweight and rugged Trimble Site Mobile controller is an all-in-one mobile device that enables enhanced connectivity in the field. Featuring a large, capacitive touch screen with superior sunlight readability, an integrated 8-megapixel camera and the convenience of a built-in smartphone, the Site Mobile eliminates the need to carry multiple devices on the construction site.

A new, entry-level version of Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software has been designed to run on the Site Mobile controller. The software is simple to use and learn, making it ideal for contractors who are new to construction technology. In addition, the SCS900 is upgradeable to more complex functionality as a contractor’s needs change.

The SPS985L GNSS Smart Antenna has the same tough casing and compact design as other Trimble GNSS Smart Antennas at an attractive price point. For accurate construction site measurement, the SPS985L provides precision Real Time Kinetic (RTK) positioning by using GPS and GLONASS.

The Essentials Kit can be upgraded to take advantage of Connected Site® technology, including VRS® networks, Internet Base Station Service (IBSS), Trimble Remote Assistant and wireless data sync. Trimble Connected Site solutions transform the construction industry by utilizing technology to improve efficiency and productivity, while minimizing waste and expense.
