Are we able to add "Bottom of Bumper" or similar per the attached diagram as a method to measure an R10 antenna height in Trimble Access, Business Centre etc...?
The answer is No. Bottom of bumper can not be specific within Trimble Access/Trimble Business Center. Please find below all possible measurements to determine the height for R10 receiver (TA General Survey User Guide 2017.10, page 322).
This is a feature request.
what is the reason to have the opportunity to measure to "Bottom of Bumper"?
Are the other options not sufficient enough for the customers?
Can you provide me a few reason why this feature is needed in Trimble Access?
Some Trimble local dealers elect to have R10 extension Lever as an optional extra. Hence, if wanting to use the R10 on a Tripod for say Static observations, there is no method for an accurate antenna slant height measurement.
With the housing of the R10 being so much smaller than say an R8s, my feeling is that it wouldn't possible to measure a very accurate slant height e.g. to the bumper or signature (yellow) line because the tape would have to bend around the mounting surface on the tripod to take a reading. This is the purpose of the lever on the R10 extension. Perhaps you could provide a photo if you disagree?
Keep in mind also that the R10 extension can now be used with any supported receiver or antenna in Trimble Access.
Maybe so Andrew, but it would certainly be more accurate than the current options being Bottom of Antenna Mount or Bottom of Quick Release.
Do you know if that Antenna diagram came from Trimble?
I completely agree with you! I've complained why a center of bumper/yellow line isn't a measuring option in Access just like on every receiver from the 5800 through the current R8s! There's an add on lever extension which is poor or Trimble to do. In current Access, they've even smartly eliminated the "true height" entry option for a total station height now only able to enter a height to "bottom notch" which is a very good diagonal/slant measurement... just like the yellow line on the R10.
He noted where that diagram came from, plus it looks like Steven works at Trimble.
