Carlson Software recently released its new Carlson Surveyor2, the newest model in its line of data collectors. The Surveyor2 is paired with Carlson’s software to provide a powerful, complete solution for surveying, stake out, construction layout, and GIS mapping. Designed and manufactured by Juniper Systems, the Carlson Surveyor2 is built to withstand the harshest conditions, with an IP68 rating for dust and water and superb durability when dropped or exposed to cold, heat or other rugged environments. With minimal increases in weight, the new Surveyor2 offers greater memory and data storage, a faster, 1 GHz processor, and significantly improved Bluetooth range — up to 1,500 ft. The data collector also features a new QWERTY keyboard with large buttons for easy data entry, enhanced battery power with 20-plus hours of runtime, and a larger, brighter display, providing great visibility in any lighting conditions.
