Product Overview

Trimble TSC5 Controllers are wirelessly connected, rugged handheld data collectors for GNSS or total station operations. Trimble controllers give construction surveyors, grade checkers and site engineers total control over their on-site tasks. Designed for construction site operations, the TSC5 offers integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, built-in camera, GPS and long battery life in a lightweight, shock, dust and water resistant package.


The Android-based TSC5 survey controller features a 5-inch screen and full keyboard that ensures fast, efficient operation, even while wearing gloves. Rugged yet lightweight, with all-day battery power, the TSC5 is easy to carry and easy to use for on-site tasks.


As part of the Trimble Connected Site, Trimble controllers come standard with integrated Wi-Fi capability for instant network access.

  • Wirelessly sync with the office to receive GNSS corrections via the internet
  • A construction surveyor or grade checker can receive the design model, create new measurements and then send the measurement and stakeout results back to the office for review
  • Design changes originating in the office can be sent to the controller so field crews are rapidly updated with current information without leaving the site or the office, dramatically increasing productivity and reducing costs

Trimble controllers are water and dust resistant to withstand the toughest weather and jobsite conditions.

  • Military-spec, rugged design, engineering and performance
  • Designed for operation in all light conditions
  • Operate in a wide range of temperatures

Trimble controllers are designed to operate with Trimble Site Positioning Systems hardware, including the SPS986 and SPS785 GNSS Smart Antennas, R750 GNSS Modular Receiver, and SPS series total stations. Integrated Bluetooth wireless technology delivers cable-free communication between the controller and Trimble GNSS receivers.
