OVERVIEW

The Carlson RT5 and RTk5 are fast, ruggedized Windows® data collectors designed for surveying, stake-out, construction layout and GIS mapping, and are bundled with Carlson SurvPC7 – the Windows-based data collection program. The RT5 and RTk5 can also run SurvPC7 with Esri for live access to view and update an ArcGIS Online database in the field. With 8GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, you can collect and analyze your data quicker than ever before.

The Carlson RTk5 also includes an advanced GNSS solution, allowing new levels of freedom and accuracy in a compact, light, versatile package. The Carlson RTk5 comes with a custom-built pole and cradle, a survey-grade antenna, a small portable helix antenna for handheld GNSS use, and provides a light, versatile, all-in-one solution for land surveyors, engineers, GIS professionals, and anyone else in need of advanced GNSS positioning with an RTK rover.
