GPS Rover Essentials Kit
New to GPS technology? Consider Trimble’s Site Positioning Essentials Kit. With a budget-friendly price tag this kit bundles Trimble’s proven quality and accuracy. This kit is a great solution for grade checkers, site engineers and contractors. Inexperienced users can be using the system for site positioning tasks in under an hour.
The Site Positioning Essentials Kit will equip you with all the tools necessary to stay on top of a hectic job. With it, you can quickly tackle any measurement task, including initial site surveys to verify elevations and to check volume estimates for site, road and rail construction, mining or landfill projects. You no longer have to wait for a contract surveyor to check progress or stock volumes as this kit allows you to conduct daily or periodic site measurements. You can even get real-time cut/fill records everywhere on the site – not just at intermittent points created by conventional methods. Address any potential problems on site immediately by recording layer information and calculating volume changes with the Site Positioning Essentials Kit. This kit also allows you to verify grade and capture as-built information as well as do slope staking, set out utility lines, roads and other site features.
The kit comes Connected Site-ready, helping you eliminate downtime, increase efficiency and reduce costs.
The Site Positioning Essentials kit can be added to, with Trimble’s SCS900 Site Control Software functionality, down the road as your needs change, so there’s no loss of investment. The kit can also be used with a GNSS base station or any of the virtual correction sources, including Trimble Internet Base Station Service and Trimble VRS Now.
The Site Positioning Essentials Kit includes Trimble® Site Mobile, SCS900 Site Control Software and the SPS985L GNSS Smart Antenna. Trimble Site Mobile combines a camera, controller and smartphone into one lightweight device. This device is loaded with an entry-level version of the SCS900 Site Controller software, which is designed to be simple to learn and use and is ideal for using GNSS to measure points, check grade and navigate points of interest. This version of the software is easily upgradeable when you need to perform more complex tasks.
The included SPS985L GNSS Smart Antenna is a rugged, accurate rover. Designed for the construction site, the SPS985L provides you with accurate construction site measurement and includes an integrated wideband radio for receiving corrections. A web-based, smartphone compatible interface is used to setup and configure the antenna. The SPS985L can be used with your own base station, Internet Base Station Service (IBSS) or a VRS network. GPS, GLONASS and QZSS satellite constellations are standard. The optional Trimble xFill™ technology is available for short gaps in correction messages as well.
