Carlson Software Introduces All New Surveyor2 Data Collector

Fast, Rugged, and Reliable

Berlin, Germany (6 October 2014) – The world’s most reliable data collector just got better with the release of the Carlson Surveyor2, the newest model of Carlson Software’s Carlson Surveyor line of data collectors, at the Carlson’s Stand 1.037, Hall 1.1 at Intergeo 2014.

Fast, durable and even more powerful, the Carlson Surveyor2 is completely ruggedized, with an IP68 water and dust resistant Ingress rating. Still weighing just two pounds, the Carlson Surveyor2 offers increased program memory (now 512KB) and increased non-volatile data storage (now 8 gigabytes) — and a 1.0 GHz processor to provide the speed surveyors need in the field. In addition, it comes equipped with significantly increased Bluetooth range – up to 1500 feet when paired with a class I device.

The Surveyor2’s new QWERTY keyboard eases data entry and is designed to be workable even for those with large hands or wearing gloves. The unit’s backlit keys and larger, brighter display screen allow users to work effectively in all lighting conditions.

“Not only did the Surveyor2 retain the durability of its predecessor, but its higher-resolution, easier-to-read display screen also comes with scratch-resistant glass,” says Bruce Carlson, president and founder of Carlson Software. “An added convenience is its enhanced battery life – up to 20 hours.”

The Surveyor2 has kept its easy-to-grip design, being thinner front to back than other data collectors when resting on a table top. The computer runs on Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and Carlson SurvCE 4.0 can be included. SurvCE is the powerful data collection software used around the world.

The Surveyor2 is designed for surveying, stake out, construction layout and GIS mapping. The easy-to-use, tab-based menu and advanced graphics in Carlson SurvCE 4.0 work perfectly on the Carlson Surveyor2, enhancing its usability. Other options available with the Surveyor2 include an integrated GSM cell modem for real-time connectivity, an integrated 5 MP camera with LED illuminator that doubles as flashlight, and a mapping grade GNSS receiver.
