Chandler, Arizona (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Group Mobile, well known for carrying the top brands in rugged laptops, rugged tablet PCs, rugged smartphones, and rugged handheld computers has extended its product line to include new models of Trimble's Yuma 2 rugged tablet computer. The Yuma 2 tablet, which already provides the best sunlight readable display on the market, is now available with a 1-2 meter real-time Enhanced GPS positional accuracy using SBAS satellites.
New 1-2 Meter Enhanced Accuracy
Enhanced GPS uses SBAS and a GPS Accuracy Algorithm to provide dramatic improvements. Under the correct conditions, Enhanced GPS allows data collection with 1-2 meter accuracy in real time, while gathering raw data output for post-processing applications. The Enhanced GPS is integrated into the tablet form factor, adding no weight or need to attach an external GPS receiver to collect GPS data.
The Yuma 2 Enhanced GPS models (GL and GLX), using the GPS L1 band, offer dependable performance in reduced signal environments. The Yuma 2 with Enhanced GPS tests at an average cold start of less than 33 seconds, and a warm start of less than 3 seconds. The Yuma 2 GL is designed to work with Trimble VRS, a solution provided by Trimble Positioning Services. The GLX version also adds the 3.75 GSM data connectivity option into the tablet.
The standard 2-4 meter GPS configurations and the new 1-2 meter Enhanced GPS models of the Yuma 2 both support connecting an external GPS antenna that can be utilized when workers are inside a vehicle.
"We designed the Yuma 2 with Enhanced GPS for field workers who move from place to place to collect asset location information,” said Victoria Gagnon, business development manager of Trimble's Mobile Computing Solutions Division. “With the new Enhanced GPS models, they won't have to waste their time waiting for a system to warm up.”
The Enhanced GPS configurations are accompanied by the many features and options already available in Trimble’s Yuma 2 tablet computer, including 1.6GHz dual core processor, 4GB RAM, choice of 64GB or 128GB Solid State Drive options, 3.75 GSM connectivity option, Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional operating system, and more. The Yuma 2 is built rugged from the inside out, with IP65 protection from dust and water, and with military-grade MIL-STD-810G certification for temperature, altitude, humidity extremes, vibration and shock.
"Trimble outdoor rugged tablets have always been a popular choice among our customers because of their outstanding ruggedness and reliability, as well as Trimble’s years of experience in outdoor rugged mobile solutions," said Stephanie Kreitner, marketing director for Group Mobile. The new Yuma 2 models will provide even greater accuracy and efficiency for our customers."
