April 2, 2015 – Trimble announced the Trimble SitePulse
System, an affordable and easy-to-use Site Positioning System designed for
superintendents, foremen and field engineers on heavy civil construction sites.
Instead of using paper plans, the new SitePulse System empowers field managers
with the same 3D constructible model and digital information that construction
surveyors, grade checkers and machine operators’ use. This can result in
improved communication, less rework and better decision-making.

April 2, 2015 – Trimble announced the Trimble SitePulse
System, an affordable and easy-to-use Site Positioning System designed for
superintendents, foremen and field engineers on heavy civil construction sites.
Instead of using paper plans, the new SitePulse System empowers field managers
with the same 3D constructible model and digital information that construction
surveyors, grade checkers and machine operators’ use. This can result in
improved communication, less rework and better decision-making.

 

By connecting more people on the jobsite, communications
between the field and office can be improved and up-to-date information can be
shared wirelessly. Using the Trimble SitePulse software with the new Trimble
SPS585 GNSS Smart Antenna, field managers can take photographs that are tagged
with GNSS position, date and time to create an audit trail of day-to-day
activities, and provide thorough documentation of work completed over the
course of the entire job for invoicing and payments. In addition, SitePulse
allows superintendents and foremen to ensure work is on schedule and validate
work quality without waiting for an internal or contract surveyor.

 

With a simple, easy-to-use interface, Trimble SitePulse
field software is built for construction managers who do not have a surveying
background. The software runs on either the Trimble Site Tablet or any
third-party Android tablet, giving contractors the flexibility to choose the
hardware platform that best fits their needs and budget.

 

The new Trimble SPS585 GNSS Smart Antenna is a versatile,
compact and budget-friendly receiver that can be moved quickly from a truck to
a range pole using a built-in magnetic mount. The SPS585 can access
multi-constellation GNSS satellites and provides typical positioning accuracy
of 10-centimeters (0.33ft.) using Trimble RTX–based services, which stream GNSS
corrections via satellite to the receiver without the need for a traditional
base station.

 

The Trimble SitePulse System leverages Trimble Connected
Site technology, including VRS networks, Internet Base Station Service (IBSS)
and wireless data sync to provide efficient system configuration and
streamlined workflows. Trimble Connected Site solutions transform the
construction industry by utilizing technology to increase efficiency, improve
productivity and reduce rework.
