Future Proof Investment

Trimble Modules are designed to work across all of our EMPOWER base platforms, available now and in the future. If you require more functionality later on, you don’t need to buy a whole new handheld, just add on a module.


The modules are easily swappable in the field and office for changing workflows, and multiple modules can be combined on EMPOWER Platforms that have 2 module bays.

Lower Cost

No need to pay for features you don’t need. Buy the base platform and upgrade functionality with modules later if necessary. We’ve moved the higher cost components to modules to lower the cost of the handheld and make upgrading easier.

Cross Platform Support

Trimble EMPOWER Modules are supported multiple devices, including our Android Nomad 5” handheld, Windows 10 Yuma 7” tablet, and Windows 10 Ranger 7” handheld with full keyboard.
