Trimble SX12 Applications

Swiftly document every feature of a land title survey with a powerful combination of high accuracy surveying and 26,000 points-per-second 3D scanning. Capture the location of boundaries, buildings, easements and site improvements in a seamless process. Back in the office, engineers can immediately visualize the site and surrounding context, including right-of-way features, encroaching elements and complex structures. When it comes time for rendering, CAD technicians can easily understand and extract additional site information from scan data and images without costly site revisits.



Count on the focused and exceptionally visible laser pointer to stake out points or measure topo points with ease, even at night. Use Trimble® Access™ to easily compare scans to a reference surface such as a horizontal floor, inclined or vertical wall, or cylinder. Reference colorized point clouds to instantly identify surface irregularities, then mark issues in the field using the laser pointer.



Achieve discrete total station point measurement and 3D scanning with one powerful instrument. Easily stake out mine features using the ultra-bright, high-power laser, then scan to efficiently collect georeferenced point cloud data. Boost accuracy and speed when performing volumetric surveys, including overbreak and underbreak comparisons.



Improve safety and reduce costs by avoiding road closures and keeping surveyors out of harm’s way. Efficiently scan road corridors and intersection details such as roadway surfaces, overhead power lines and lane markings. Capture flow-lines, manholes, and right-of-way monumentation with prism observations, then use Trimble Business Center’s automated tools to extract point features such as signs and pole attributes and 3D linework for curb and gutter. Incorporating detailed panorama imagery, provide site context like never before to improve deliverable quality and communications between you and your clients.



Capture rich, accurate and complete geometrical and visual documentation of bridges, dams, tunnels, complex structures and more. Work smarter and faster on as-builts, clearance, deformation monitoring and retrofit design projects. With simple framing techniques and 600 m scan ranges, it’s easy to collect detailed data, even on large or remote structures.
