Trimble Wireless Data Controller Connects Office and Job Site


Construction Technology & Software

Wireless capabilities for the Trimble® LM80 Layout Manager incorporates a powerful rugged controller and office software for real-time two-way data transfer between the project design team in the office and the general and landscaping contractors at the jobsite to increase efficiency and productivity.

The system creates a digital replica of the landscaping plan in the field. It connects to both mechanical and robotic total stations for accurate, fast and simple layout. Designed for use on the building construction job site, the wireless data controller for the system is rugged, includes wireless communications, Bluetooth connection capabilities, a highly visible screen, and a fast processor.

The wireless capabilities give contractors accurate control of their layout, especially jobs with various design elevation elements. As part of Trimble's Connected Site™ construction solutions, the wireless capability allows for the real-time transfer of design files between the office and jobsite. Design engineers can make changes immediately available to the contractor, and the contractor can transfer in real-time as-builts to communicate progress reports and problems. Additionally, the fast processor and highly visible screen make it easy to work with complex building designs on the jobsite.

The wireless data controller for the Trimble LM80 Layout Manager, Trimble LM80 Layout Manager version 4.2 and Trimble LM80 Desktop version 2.2 are available now through Trimble's Construction distribution channel.
