SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today a new generation of GNSS devices for GIS field applications—the Trimble® Juno® 3B and 3D handhelds. With the new Trimble Juno series, mobile workforces ranging from public utilities to municipalities are empowered with rugged, integrated GNSS handhelds that are optimized for everyday field work such as asset management, data collection and inspections.
The Trimble Juno series provides a complete, integrated package of positioning, imaging and communications for flexibility. Two versions are available. The Juno 3B has an integrated GPS, a 5 MP autofocus camera and Windows Mobile software. The Juno 3D includes all of the features of the Juno 3B plus 3G wireless technology, which allows users to transfer data faster and stay connected to the office with an integrated mobile phone.
"The new Juno series is the latest innovation from Trimble for the GIS community," said Daniel Wallace, general manager of Trimble's GIS Data Collection Division. "Re-designed from the ground up, these handhelds will help users get more out of the field and into their GIS."
Designed for GIS Workflows
Professional, geo-enabled fieldwork requires dedicated field software and systems built for map-centric computing. The Trimble Juno series are lightweight, yet high-performance handhelds for industry-specific applications such as Trimble Field Inspector software used in gas, electric and water utilities and Trimble Municipal Reporter™ software which is used for incident reporting in government agencies. For non-specialized tasks, Trimble TerraSync™ software and the Trimble Juno make a streamlined combination with fast access to GIS workflows in the field. Easy access to professional-grade data collection enables GIS managers to take advantage of distributed workforces for maintenance of GIS data.
Rugged for Tough Outdoor Conditions
Designed in a pocket-size package that is resistant to dust, water and shock, the new Trimble Juno series can operate in a variety of harsh environments with its IP54 rating. It has an improved sunlight-optimized screen that maintains exceptional clarity in outdoor conditions, including direct sunlight. Text, background maps and photos are crisp and easy to view.
Feature Packed and Fully Integrated
Field workers can collect GPS data, capture and link photos to features, and send and receive data from the field using a single device. Combining the benefits of a GPS device, camera, PDA and mobile phone, the Juno 3D handheld provides mobile workers with the tools they need in a compact package—there's no more managing multiple devices, batteries and connections. For ultimate field productivity, the Trimble Juno handhelds offer a long-life battery for all day use, typically 10 plus hours using GPS, as well as increased memory and a powerful processor for large GIS applications.
High-Sensitivity GPS Receiver
For standard positioning applications such as navigation, the high-sensitivity receiver delivers optimal yield to log positions quickly in difficult environments. Field workers are not restricted where they can perform everyday field work. Whether next to buildings or under tree cover, users can quickly get a position to begin data collection and asset management tasks.
5 Megapixel Autofocus Camera with Flash
The Juno series includes a high-resolution camera with geotagging capabilities enabling field workers to take photos as part of their workflow. No extra equipment, batteries or file transfers are required. With the camera, teams can document exactly what they see in the field.
Wireless Data and Voice Capability
With 3G cellular capability, the Juno 3D is ideal for increased collaboration with the office, receiving work orders and sending real-time field conditions. High transfer speeds mean less time spent waiting for downloads. Users can have access to the most current data and improved communications without an additional mobile phone.
The new Trimble Juno 3B and 3D handhelds are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2012 from Trimble's worldwide Mapping & GIS authorized distribution channel. For more information, visit: www.trimble.com/juno.
Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring position or location—including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies, such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user. Wireless technologies are utilized to deliver the solution to the user and to ensure a tight coupling of the field and the back office. Founded in 1978, Trimble is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif.
