Does anyone know, if the new C3 and C5 mechanical total stations have external memory (like SD-card, USB) to store the data on? Which are some of the common export formats, that you can use?
Thanks for the answers!Regards
C5 have about 3.2GB free internal memory when Trimble Access is installed.
Data can be downloaded via USB in two ways:
SD card is not available.
Data can be exported in fixed Trimble Access formats like: csv, shp, dxf and various custom formats which can be found by default in Trimble Access.
How do you export data via Pen Drive, I tried doing that but didn’t work, I assumed it was cause I was plugging in a 32GB pen drive.
From Trimble Access go into Job, Import/Export. Then select either Export fixed format ( CSV, SDR33, DC, JXL, Shape file or DXF) or Export custom format (uses a Style Sheet to define the format). In either option under file name, navigate to your Pendrive. If the USB Pendrive doesn't show up, Try and smaller one, preferably USB 2 rather than USB 3.
The C3 runs different onboard software so the process will be different. Please refer to the User Guide if you have a C3.
Have Trimble Acess on the C3, would try to get a USB 2.0 Pendrive. Also a colleague mentioned to me that after 60 points stored, he’d have to close job and reopen job then carry out station orientation. I found this strange since the C3 has almost 4GB of storage and storage isn’t the problem. Is there a break-limit for this instrument...appreciate your reply.
You must be referring the the C5 as the Access does not run on the C3, and only the C5 has 4GB of Flash Memory. However you shouldn't have any problems collecting more than 60 points at a time, with either the C3 or C5 . If the problem persists I would recommend contacting your dealer.
