Trimble has announced the launch the Trimble® T7 tablet. Built for survey and geographic information system (GIS) data collection applications, the tablet connects to the company’s suite of survey instruments and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receivers. Equipped with a 7-inch multi-touch screen, modular expansion capability, multiple connectivity options and featuring a Windows® 10 Professional operating system, the tablet is designed to streamline the flow of geospatial data between the field and office for efficiency and productivity.

Designed for the rigors of the field, the tablet features hot-swappable batteries, a design that meets military (MIL-STD-810G) specifications to protect against moisture, dust ingress, drops and shocks as well as an improved grip zone for secure handling and portability. The sunlight-readable display, protected by Gorilla® Glass, makes it ideal to view data, images and maps in all outdoor conditions. A professional grade built-in GNSS receiver supports GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou constellations as well as satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) capabilities for accurate real-time positioning.

With an Intel Pentium N4200 quad core processor, 8 GB memory and powered by the familiar Windows 10 operating system, users can run office software applications in the field. The T7 tablet leverages 4G LTE cellular data, Bluetooth® 4.2 and Wi-Fi, which allows users to upload, sync and share data in real time as well as collaborate with and receive on the job support from the office, helping to reduce time in the field.

The tablet has two Trimble EMPOWER module slots, which enables users to attach field-replaceable modules for flexible workflows. Modules currently available include a 2.4 GHz radio for controlling robotic total stations and a sub-meter GNSS receiver for increased positioning accuracy. Custom modules can also be developed for specific workflow needs. The modules can be used on any EMPOWER-compatible device.
