Surveying and measurement solutions specialist Leica Geosystems has selected Getac's rugged Android tablet for its new mobile surveying device.
Leica Geosystems' new Leica Zeno GG04 plus Tablet Solution uses the Getac tablet to provide the platform for all weather, all terrain deployments for geospatial data collection.
The company says the solution is intended for use in sectors such as utilities, public services, transportation and construction, and to enable highly accurate geospatial data capture in the field.
The Getac fully rugged ZX70 Android tablet has been designed to be easy to hold, and to operate in outdoors conditions. The 7-inch IPS display is designed to be easy to read, even in direct sunlight, while the LumiBond 2.0 touchscreen allows for full operation of the tablet in the rain and even while wearing gloves.
The Android operating system has seamless support for Leica's Zeno Mobile software, allowing for high accuracy Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positions to be utilized and rich attribute data to be collected to be collected easily in the field
The Getac ZX70's integrated 4G modem can transmit large data files quickly and easily, even from remote locations. The fast, stable and reliable data connection also allows users to effectively utilise Hexagon Geosystems' HxGN SmartNet correction service, enabling accurate GNSS measurement to within one centimetre.
The device is also backed by a full warranty.
"The Getac ZX70 provides the missing piece of the puzzle for the complete surveying solution we wanted to bring to our customers," said Alexander Fischer, Senior Product Manager for Asset Collection & Management, Leica Geosystems. "Not only is it extremely durable and reliable, but the powerful Android operating system and flexible connectivity make it the perfect partner to our Zeno Mobile software and GG04 plus smart antenna. Customers can be confident of optimal performance, regardless of the environment they're in or the weather conditions faced."
"The ZX70 offers best-in-class durability, connectivity and usability, and has been designed to withstand shocks, drops, rain, vibration and more, making it the perfect hardware partner for Leica's industry leading Zeno Mobile software and Smart Antenna," said Amanda Ward, Director, EMEA Product and Solutions at Getac. "In the past, tape measures were used to triangulate positions in the field, which is neither reliable nor accurate. The combination of Getac's ZX70 tablet with the Leica Zeno Mobile software and GG04 plus smart antenna saves time for both field and back-office teams, whilst the high-accuracy GNSS increases the validity of asset data and reduces the risk of errors."
