Topcon Introduces FC-500 Hand-held Data Collector for GIS

Compatible with either the Topcon eGIS or MAGNET® Field GIS software, the FC-500 is designed to create smooth and speedy dataflow between the field and office.  The FC-500 has built-in wireless Bluetooth® and WiFi connectivity, and an optional 3.5G cellular modem, allowing interaction from users in the field, to the office, and additionally to the cloud when used with MAGNET Enterprise.

“For GIS users who are dealing with massive amounts of data, the FC-500 increases productivity with information stored and accessed immediately in the cloud, making data transfer and retrieval virtually instantaneous.  Users no longer have to wait until field work is completed to analyze and display data, leading to faster project completion times and better informed decision making,” said Hooten.

“The FC-500 is rugged with an IP68 water resistance rating,” said Hooten. “The unit is built to withstand unpredictable job site conditions.”

Additional features of the FC-500 include a 1GHz processor and 8GB flash storage. When used with MAGNET Field, users can imprint file information, including GPS location, directly on photos that are taken with the internal 5MP camera.

The FC-500 can also be used as a standalone device for 2-5 meter accuracy or as part of a complete high-accuracy GIS solution.

Additional information on the FC-500 for GIS is available at topconpositioning.com.
