Trimble has expanded its GPS Pathfinder family with the release of the Trimble Pro 6H and Pro 6T receivers for GIS and mobile mapping. The Trimble Pro series with advanced features claim to allow mobile workers to configure a solution for various applications and to offer unparalleled flexibility in professional GIS data collection.

According to the company, the series comes in a streamlined form-factor and delivers dramatic productivity improvements in difficult GNSS environments with Trimble Floodlight technology. Likewise, the modular Trimble Pro series receiver gives users the flexibility to choose their setup configurations optimized for use with Trimble data collection devices such as the Trimble Juno or Nomad G series handhelds, or Yuma tablet. The devices can also be used with other tablets and handhelds with NMEA output.

The products boast real-time or post-processed GIS workflows, noted the company. Additionally, the receivers can be deployed in a backpack, on a pole or mounted on a vehicle. Two models are availablethe Trimble Pro 6H delivers decimeter accuracy, while the Pro 6T is the submeter model for standard GIS applications.

Unique to Trimble, Floodlight technology combines a range of innovative techniques to increase the availability of positions and boost accuracy in areas affected by satellite shadow, stated the company. Using Floodlight technology, the Pro series can keep teams productive without compromising on accuracy. Users can work with fewer disruptions and ensure better data, faster data collection and higher field efficiency.

Trimble Pro series receivers are rugged and built to withstand the rigors of long hours in tough outdoor conditions, yet optimized for high-accuracy GIS data collection workflows, added the company. For applications such as utilities inspections and timber stand valuations, Trimble Pro receivers claim to provide long battery life and tough construction for dependable service over the course of rigorous data collection projects.

With its IP65 rating, the receivers offer reliable operation, even after prolonged exposure to water and dust, Trimble noted. An integrated antenna reduces the complexity of the system for fast setup and swift data collection campaigns. Field workers can be up and running with minimal training, saving time and money. Combined with a Trimble handheld solution and Trimble TerraSync software, the complete system provides dedicated field workflows to simplify data collection and improve integration with the GIS for total workflow improvements.

The Trimble Pro 6H and 6T receivers are available now.
