Trimble ACU Controller

Postby Michael O'Connor » Mon Jan 20, 2003 7:06 pm

I'm on the verge of purchasing the Trimbble 5603 DR200+ Robotic with their ACU Controller and data collection products. How does this equipment marry with MS CAD 2002?

Geodimeter File format

Postby Glen Cameron » Tue Jan 21, 2003 7:50 am

If i remember correctly, that unit uses the Geodimeter coding to download the data. If this is the case, you will need to use their Geotools program to do the down/uploading between the computer and the unit. Once on the computer we can read in the Geodimeter format.

Here is an example of a file format that works:

Here is a file that I documented that explains the use of the codes we do work with. The order the codes are found in is VERY important for it to work. If you set your instrument up to record these codes, then we should be able to read in your jobs cleanly. This example has a short traverse of 3 stations as well as 3 side shots from one of the setups.
I hope it helps.

When I read the file above in, I read it as a Stacked 400+ NEW format.
