CES have recently purchased the latest Trimble GPS antenna. This new technology is a game changer when it comes to collecting survey grade GPS observations.  With its internal IMU and accurate tilt meter it enables us to survey areas not previously suitable to GPS.

In the realm of land surveying, precision and accuracy are paramount. The Trimble R12i, a ground-breaking GNSS receiver, has revolutionised the industry with its advanced features and exceptional performance. In this blog, we explore how the Trimble R12i is empowering modern surveyors to elevate their work to new heights of accuracy and efficiency.

Unmatched Accuracy and Reliability:

Surveying demands unwavering precision, and the Trimble R12i delivers on this front. Equipped with Trimble’s most advanced GNSS technology, this receiver provides unparalleled accuracy even in challenging environments. With access to multiple global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and advanced signal processing algorithms, the R12i ensures consistent positioning accuracy down to the centimetre level. Surveyors can rely on its robust signal tracking capabilities, mitigating obstructions such as trees and buildings. By minimising errors and providing dependable results, the Trimble R12i instils confidence in surveyors, enabling them to make informed decisions based on accurate data.

Advanced Features for Enhanced Efficiency:

Efficiency is a key aspect of modern surveying, and the Trimble R12i excels in streamlining surveying workflows. This receiver boasts advanced features that enable surveyors to work faster and smarter. The ProPoint™ GNSS positioning engine ensures rapid initialisation and fast convergence times, reducing waiting periods and enabling surveyors to start collecting data promptly. Additionally, the Trimble TIP (Trimble Inertial Platform) technology enables continuous positioning during temporary GNSS outages, maximising productivity in challenging environments.

Moreover, the R12i supports the Trimble CenterPoint® RTX service, providing precise positioning worldwide without the need for a base station or VRS network. This eliminates the time-consuming process of setting up and maintaining base stations, enabling surveyors to work efficiently in remote or inaccessible areas.

Enhanced Connectivity and Data Management:

The Trimble R12i facilitates seamless connectivity and data management, further enhancing surveying efficiency. With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, surveyors can easily connect the receiver to field controllers, tablets, or smartphones, allowing real-time data transfer and remote control. This wireless connectivity enables efficient collaboration among surveying teams, reducing delays, and optimising project timelines.

Additionally, the R12i is compatible with Trimble’s field software solutions, such as Trimble Access and Trimble Business Centre. These powerful software packages provide a comprehensive suite of tools for survey planning, data collection, and analysis. Surveyors can effortlessly import, process, and analyse data, saving valuable time and ensuring accuracy throughout the surveying workflow.

Conclusion: The Trimble R12i has become an indispensable tool for modern surveyors, empowering them to achieve unmatched levels of accuracy, efficiency, and productivity. With its advanced features, seamless connectivity, and reliable performance, the R12i has revolutionised the surveying industry, enabling us to take on complex projects with confidence and precision.
