Topcon Introduces Newest Data Controller for Surveying Solutions

LIVERMORE, Calif. – February 11, 2016 — Topcon Positioning Group announces the latest addition to its line of data controllers for construction and surveying professionals — the FC-5000. The 7-inch sunlight-readable display field controller is designed to provide operators a larger, more versatile and faster handheld computer for the modern construction site.
“At 7-inches, the FC-5000 has the largest handheld data controller screen in our product line,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “The display has a capacitive touch interface — with finger, glove, small tip stylus and water capable options — that is optically bonded to increase visibility. With the press of a key, a user can change the orientation of the screen from portrait to landscape to increase visibility when viewing maps or drawings.”
The controller is compatible with all Topcon GNSS receivers and total stations — operating MAGNET® Field, Site and Layout software.
“The FC-5000 comes with two built-in cameras — an 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash for field photography — and a 2 MP camera on the front for video meetings.  With 64GB of flash storage, users can store hundreds of photos in the unit, which can be easily transferred to any computer or USB stick,” said Kerwin.
Additional features include an optional 4G LTE cellular modem, internal GPS navigation, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi, and a battery life of 10-plus hours.
