Features and Benefits
Trimble ProPoint Technology
Trimble xFill Technology
Using the Trimble SPS986 GNSS Smart Antenna and Trimble Siteworks Positioning Software, capture accurate points while standing, walking or driving the site in a vehicle, while the receiver is not level. From inside the vehicle, contractors can set the height of the antenna and quickly interrogate surface models using the real-time 3D surface display. Tilt compensation allows for faster data collection—create larger digital terrain models faster and with improved accuracy.
- Easy to learn for beginners, saves time for experienced surveyors.
- Easily and safely survey hard to reach areas (corners, traffic lanes, utility flowlines).
- From a moving vehicle, capture higher accuracy measurements on steeper slopes.
- Capture more accurate volume measurements to save time and money on material planning.
- Auto-measure antenna height.
- Faster measurements, more efficient stake-outs.
When used as a rover, the SPS986 enables wide variety of site measurement tasks including pole-mounted for grade checking, ATV-mounted for progress monitoring, and truck-mounted for site supervision.
For initial site reconnaissance, you can deploy it with satellite-delivered GNSS corrections without a base station. For higher accuracy site measurements such as grade checking, it can receive Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) corrections via the internal wideband radio, Wi-Fi or the Internet.
A grade checker can mount the SPS986 to an ATV and easily conduct site topos, check as-builts and verify road centerlines where it is not easy or safe to walk with a range pole. Extending its productivity, the same unit can then be mounted on the roof of a supervisor’s truck roof to collect and manage progress data.
Wi-Fi Base Station
As a base station, the SPS986 incorporates Wi-Fi communications for small site projects and wideband radio for long-range operations on large projects.
Designed for ease of use, it will automatically establish a connection and transmit RTK corrections to another rover or machine control system. When it is that easy, construction crews can spend more time doing the work and less time setting up and maintaining the equipment.
