SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 4, 2011—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the new Trimble® LaserAce™ 1000 rangefinder, an easy-to-use handheld measurement tool combining a laser distance meter, digital inclinometer, sighting scope and Bluetooth® wireless technology. The new rangefinder expands Trimble’s portfolio by seamlessly integrating with its Geographic Information System (GIS) data collection solutions.
The LaserAce 1000 rangefinder provides simple point-and-shoot capability to measure the range, height and slope of passive targets up to 150 meters (500 feet) away. Using the compact and lightweight LaserAce 1000, field workers can capture measurements in hard-to-reach places from a safe, convenient location in just seconds—increasing productivity and efficiency. By providing offset measurements, the LaserAce 1000 rangefinder makes it possible to remotely gather high-accuracy measurements of virtually any location—next to buildings, under dense canopy and even indoors.
“The LaserAce 1000 rangefinder is ideal for applications in which accurate measurements are needed, but physical occupation is either impractical or unsafe,” said Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble’s GIS Data Collection Division. “Wireless data connections with Trimble GNSS handhelds and field software make the rangefinder a natural extension of current workflows providing our customers with more complete measurement solutions.”
The Trimble LaserAce 1000 rangefinder is available now from authorized Trimble distributors. For more information, visit: www.trimble.com/laserace.
