Trimble TSC5 Controller is ergonomic design is lightweight, easy to grip, and ideal for rugged environments. The TSC5 is resistant to shock, dust, and water. A brightly lit, anti-glare screen and backlit alphanumeric keypad enable fast, efficient operation in tough conditions, even while wearing gloves.

How is long does the battery last?

At this point, I can not speak from experience, but according to the specs sheet, the Trimble TSC5 survey controller will last up to 15 hours using internal GPS and backlit. This compares to the TSC3 survey controller pretty good which specs say that it lasts up to 18 hours with GNSS RTK usage. I know this is not apples to apples. But it is promising that it should last a full day of busy surveying.

How about the weight of the TSC5 controller?

Next to the battery life, this is exciting news the Trimble TSC5 survey controller actually weighs a little less than TSC3. Standing at 934g (2.06 lb), the TSC5 controller is 106g lighter than TSC3. This can be the TSC which we were looking for as a worthy replacement to TSC3.

What are Trimble Empower Modules?

So, as usual, some hardware modules will enable to upgrade of TSC5’s functionality from EM100 GNSS module, which will give a user a GNSS receiver with integrated antenna, to EM120 2.4 GHS Module for use with robotic total stations, to EM110 1D/2D Barcode Imager Module for easy integration with barcode functionality, EM111 1D/2D barcode Imager & USF 902-928 MHz RFID Module – NA[North America] – EU [European Union} for barcode and RFID reader.
