The FC-120 is available with TopSURV, Pocket Layout or Pocket 3D — Topcon's survey, layout and 3D site management software packages.

According to Neil Other, Topcon Positioning Systems’ Australia and New Zealand sales manager, the FC-120 incorporates an innovative design that packs the power of the previous model FC-200 into a smaller data collector with a large array of capabilities.

Its operating system, Windows® CE.NET 5.0, provides a field-proven operating environment that is well known and accepted in the surveying and construction industries.

Fitted with a 520MHz processor, the FC-120 provides the best balance of performance and power consumption.

“With the FC-120, Topcon has designed a compact instrument with advanced software functions that are easy to use such as a large key pop-up keyboard for data entry,” Other said. 

The FC-120 provides Compact Flash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD) card slots. 

“We can’t know what might be available in five years for a CF or SD card slot but the FC-120 is ready for it.  The card access is a superior design element.  It’s a simple, yet reliable access door allowing a user to quickly add or change memory cards,” he said.

“The FC-120 is a valuable job site tool available at an affordable price.

“It’s a rugged controller and with its advanced features, and the fact that it’s easy to learn to use and operate, the FC-120 fits the project needs for any operation,” said Other.

Features of the FC-120 include:

  • 520 MHz XScale processor
  • Windows® CE.NET 5.0 operating system
  • Compact Flash (CF) and Secure Digital (SD) media card slots for memory expansion and connectivity options
