LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S./ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands – October 16, 2018 – Topcon Positioning Group announces new accessories for the FC-5000 field computer — a landscape-style keyboard along with a stylus. The accessories are designed to improve performance in the field in harsh weather conditions.

“The new keyboard quickly and easily attaches to the FC-5000 with a clip and ram mount ball. It features a positive response, raised key, and a full QWERTY keyboard design,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “It offers an excellent alternative if touchscreen operation is inhibited by poor weather environments, or when operators need to enter detailed alphanumeric descriptions as well as navigate through MAGNET® Field menus without using the touchscreen.”

Additionally, the electrically grounded stylus is designed to only look for positive responses, improving the performance of the touchscreen in snowy, rainy, wet or cold conditions.

“The new stylus with the electrical grounding improves reaction time on the display in cold or wet weather environments,” said Kerwin.

The accessories can be used together or separately as a complement to the field computer.
