Trimble SX12 Scanning Total Station with Wi-Fi HaLow Radio, Work robotically, Reliable, long-range radios are the invisible backbone of robotic total stations

Trimble SX12 Scanning Total Station description

The introduction of the Trimble SX12, Reliable, long-range radios are the invisible backbone of robotic total stations today.Trimble SX12 with Wi-Fi HaLow model now brings the benefits of this radio to Trimble users, allowing the SX12 to quickly and easily work robotically, including at long ranges. With the NEW Trimble SX12 3D Scanning Total Station, working harder has never been easier. It combines innovative technology with simple and intuitive functionality to help you save time, maximize efficiency and get more done in the field. The SX12 is the one instrument you need to handle any surveying project by integrating surveying, imaging and 3D scanning capabilities into your everyday workflow

Now Trimble SX12 equipped with Wi-Fi HaLow radio technology
Wi-Fi Halow provides a more reliable and robust connection—up to 14 times higher bandwidth than long-range radio. It makes it easy to complete data-heavy tasks like scanning transfers or video streaming.
Wi-Fi HaLow is a variation of Wi-Fi that operates at a different frequency band, providing a longer range but lower throughput compared to standard Wi-Fi. It's similar to the difference between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies commonly found in home routers.
