Trimble R8S GNSS Receiver 2016-12-29T08:05:11+00:00

In today’s competitive construction environment, getting the job done quickly and accurately is vital to your company’s success. Whether your team is doing initial concrete layout, QA/QC on finished work, or a range of other field positioning tasks, you need to be able to quickly and confidently complete your tasks on site. However, with the complexity and scheduling on the modern job site, working around other teams and obstructions is quite common. Contractors find that work can be interrupted when an obstruction lies between the point of measurement and the total station, requiring a new station setup and lost time. With the new Trimble R8S GNSS system, there is no need to maintain line of sight with the total station. Instead, the contractor only needs a clear view of the sky to capture measurements fast.

Designed For General Contractors
Originally developed for land surveyors, GPS and other Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technologies have played a role in construction for years. However, initial solutions were often complex and overwhelming for non-specialists in the building industry. With that in mind, Trimble set out to design a GNSS system specifically for general contractors. The Trimble R8s delivers sub-centimeter horizontal positioning accuracy in a lightweight, rugged design. As long as you have an unobstructed view of the sky, satellite positioning is a viable option to help you complete work faster. With the Trimble R8s, you can perform a variety of common tasks such as checking footings, retaining wall, formwork, rough grading, or performing deck layout or QA/QC on finished work.

Task Based Workflow With Trimble Field Link 2D

The Trimble R8s was designed for use with the same Trimble Field Link 2D software used to control Trimble’s total stations. This familiarity, combined with guided workflows, allows even a novice user to be up and running in a few minutes. Trimble Field Link 2D software features task-based workflows that guide users each step of the way though common field tasks. This tasked base approach minimizes the learning curve, and gets users up and running as fast as possible. Today, Trimble Field Link 2D is the one field software to use no matter what layout equipment your team needs to use for any situation. Whether it’s a robotic total station, Trimble’s innovative Rapid Positioning System or GNSS, your team can trust Trimble Field Link 2D.
