A new model of the Trimble® SX12 total station is available, now equipped with Wi-Fi HaLowTM 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.
Reliable, long-range radios are the invisible backbone of robotic total stations today. The introduction of the 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.
Traditionally, radio communications are a tradeoff between long range and the amount of data you can send. With Wi-Fi HaLow, send all the data you need, at the range that you need, without having to switch between standard Wi-Fi and long-range radio.
The key to Wi-Fi HaLow is the use of a lower frequency than standard Wi-Fi (0.9 GHz vs 2.4 GHz). Lower frequencies have a longer wavelength, which allows the signal to travel much farther and more easily penetrate through objects and walls.
Compared to long-range radio, Wi-Fi HaLow provides up to 14 times higher bandwidth. This means you can easily perform data-heavy tasks like seamlessly transfer scans or stream video.
If you already own an SX12 system, the new Wi-Fi HaLow radio technology option is available to purchase as an upgrade. Contact your local Trimble distributor for more information.
