FC-2500 Add-on robotic radio design

The FC-2500 has an add-on connection on the back of the unit to control a spread spectrum radio for robotics communication. Use this connector and an RS-1 to have a cablefree radio connection to the Topcon robotic instruments. Additional packs may be possible in the future.

Alphanumeric Keyboard

Finally a 55 key alphanumeric keyboard unit that can control the Robotic systems. We know that land surveyors in the US market prefer an alphanumeric keyboard data collector. This FC-2500 can handle the robotic radio as an expansion slot radio.

USB Flash Drive

Use the USB mini port as both a Host and Client. This On-The-Go (OTG) functionality allows for expanded memory and easy file transfer through USB flash drives or ActiveSync connection. This design also provides rugged protection. The FC-2500 can not be compromised by opening a card door or flap. The entire unit is sealed and submersible.

Removable, hot swappable battery packs

With two NiMH batteries loaded standard with 2500mAh each, battery performance can be as high as 50 hours. But with all the functionality of this device turned on and on full power drain, you can still count on 12-14 hours. The typical power drain from a Bluetooth connection to a GPS receiver will run for 24 hours. Don't ever worry about overcharging, the FC-2500 has internal temperature monitors to prevent any unexpected high temperature issues.

Waterproof and rugged

The FC-2500 is rated at IP-67, which means it can be accidentally submersed in water. The unit also has a 3 foot drop proof rating.
