Trimble introduced its Trimble TDC100 handheld data collector at the 2016 Esri User Conference, which is being held July 27 to July 1 in San Diego, California.

An entry-level GNSS device for a variety of geographic information system (GIS) applications, the Trimble TDC100 combines both smartphone and ruggedized data collection capabilities in a single, mobile device, the company says in a news release.

The Android-based TDC100 can run commercially available or in-house developed applications on a professional, IP-67 ruggedized platform with a sunlight readable display and user replaceable batteries. The built-in GNSS receiver also provides real-time accuracy.

The Trimble TDC100 is available in two models — both models are available with an Android operating system and Wi-Fi, with an optional 4G LTE cellular version. It has a high-resolution 5.3-inch display, an 8 MP (Wi-Fi model) or 13 MP (4G LTE model) camera, and lithium-ion batteries in standard or enhanced capacity. It also supports GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou, as well as satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) capabilities.

“GIS professionals using GNSS handheld devices for a wide range of data collection applications are expressing a desire for smartphone like capabilities in a built-to-last form factor,” says Ron Bisio, vice president of Trimble’s geospatial division. “We believe the TDC100 will be a workhorse. It has been designed for mobile workers who need a functional field computer that is tougher than a consumer-grade device, while providing easy-to-use features and convenience that people have come to expect. Users can collect and retrieve highly accurate spatial data anytime, and from virtually any place, while remaining in touch with the office — with a single device.”

Trimble TDC100 is expected to be available through Trimble’s geospatial distribution channel in mid-August 2016.
