Without accurate survey data, there would not have been highways, railroads, skyscrapers, large irrigation projects and power plants. The Spectra Ranger 3RC Data Collector with Survey Pro Robotics was especially designed to gather land data even under the most extreme weather conditions. With its reliable on-board software, this handheld surveying tool can be used to control powerful robotic total stations. It also has a built-in Windows operating system, ergonomic keypad and military-grade durability to maximize productivity in all kinds of surveying, building and construction projects. In addition, this device is economical because it spares you the expense of a separate GPS receiver and digital camera.
What is a Data Collector?
A data collector is an electronic device that records precise measurements of coordinates, angles, distances, elevations and more. It is battery powered, portable, and equipped with a microprocessor, internal memory for data storage, and wireless features for connectivity and data transfer. This advanced handheld field computer increases efficiency and productivity in topographic surveying, mapping, and construction projects. With built-in keypad, LCD display and field software, it can be used in conjunction with total stations for viewing, analyzing and manipulating collected land data using a PC.
Easy Operation and Connectivity
For viewing background maps and checking work for greater data control, the Spectra Ranger 3RC has a large touch-screen color display that can be viewed easily in sunlight and is illuminated for easy use even in low lighting. It features a full alphanumeric keypad, which means you can input numbers, letters or symbols quickly and easily. In addition, this surveying field data collector has an integrated GPS receiver for accurate positioning information; a 2.4 GHz radio module for using the device easily with existing Spectra robotic total stations; and a customized 5-megapixel camera with LED flash that includes geotagging through Microsoft pictures & videos software. Geotagging is the addition of a current geographic location to the image or video using this device's integrated GPS receiver, which helps you find a variety of location-specific information efficiently. Its integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability allows cable-free connection with other field instruments and PCs. It also works as a host computer as well as a client device via USB connection.
This state of the art device comes standard with a high-speed 800 MHz processor and 256 MB RAM for running large applications with ease and 8 GB of onboard memory for storing data. It also has an accelerometer that automatically rotates the graphics on the screen based on the device's angle and an integrated compass that determines accurate direction even while standing still. This survey tool also provides USB and 9-pin serial communication options; data can be transferred easily to a PC using a cable, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or a high-capacity SD card media.
This portable data collector runs with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional operating system, the worldwide industry standard for PDAs. You can run specialized mobile version of all your favorite programs including Internet Explorer, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Media Player. It also comes standard with Adobe Reader for viewing PDF files and SatViewer for configuring and enabling the advanced features of the integrated GPS. This application communicates with the GPS receiver to compute your current position, speed, direction and height.
