Why Choose Trimble Nomad 5?

The Nomad 5 can be used in nearly any industry but it’s ideal for people working in the field because it’s drop, dust resistant, and rugged. If you work outside in all weather conditions, you’ll appreciate that the screen works perfectly in the rain. Other applications we recommend this rugged handheld for include: warehouses, transport yards, delivery vehicles, production lines, and retailers.

Need a device that can be used all day without charging? Trimble claims the 3200mAh removable battery included with the Nomad 5 provides up to 10 hours depending on display setting, connectivity, data processing, etc. With an optional second battery, you can warm swap batteries which means the Nomad 5 can be used heavily on shifts without running out of juice.
