Trimble TCU5 is the Controller designed to improve productivity on S5S7, and S9 total stations, offering exceptional workflow management. The TCU5 controller, powered by the latest Trimble Access 2020, improves your productivity, as does the new robotic mount and high-performance docking station.

The Trimble TCU5 is a reliable and durable controller for working with S-Series tacheometers. The device’s built-in Android operating system, Wi-Fi connectivity, and extensive compatibility options make the TCU5 an indispensable companion for more productive and faster performance. In addition, the rugged body of the device ensures that your data is safe when measured in any weather.

Trimble TCU5 allows both classical uses on Total Station and can measure by controlling it over the pole for single-person robotic use.
