The Sokkia SHC500 field controller is designed for land surveying, mapping, and GIS professionals who want to operate Magnet Field or Geo Pro software solutions.





Put maximum processing power and mobility in your hands with the SHC500. With touchscreen technology similarly found with smartphones, the field controller has internal GPS and a sunlight-readable display that delivers in all elements. Like all of our solutions, you can customize it to meet your needs and create your own workflows.

Handheld power
The Sokkia SHC500 field controller is designed to meet the demands of construction, mapping, and survey professionals. It works with all Sokkia GPS receivers and total stations. With internal GPS, a 5-megapixel camera, and the ability to run your choice of field software, the power is in your hands.  It includes a capacitive touch screen, similar to many smartphones. The display surface is also extremely scratch resistant, and much more pierce-resistant to sharp objects as compared with other resistive displays.

Built to last  

In addition to IP68 certification, which protects against dust and is waterproof up to one meter, the SHC500 is independently certified to MIL-STD 810G standard and can operate in temperatures ranging from -30ºC to 60ºC.

Speed on demand 

Windows Mobile® 6.5 provides a modern operating environment and added expandability with other software applications.  The 1 GHz processor drives any field application software with ease. The external ports are located at the base of the unit: USB Host, USB client micro,  power, and audio. The USB is easily used in the field to quickly copy a large job, coordinate or DXF  files. The DB9 serial port is perfect for older total stations that still require a cable.

Keep in focus 

A 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash comes as standard equipment. Store hundreds of photos on the built-in 8GB flash storage, and easily transfer them to a computer or USB stick. The proven hand-held device fits naturally in your hand and is a comfortable addition to your rover pole.

Also is available with an optional 3.5G cellular modem for active internet connections from your project sites – immediate file transfer, chat messaging, and full project management using web services. The optional internal cellular modem is capable of sending and receiving data to the cloud, making it easy to communicate with field crews when projects need to be changed.
