Current Models

TR-600 Tricorder

Starfleet's current standard issue tricorder is the TR-600 Tricorder. Unlike earlier models , the standard TR-600 tricorder can handle both standard tricorder and medical tricorder functions, eliminating the need for separate devices. It also has a larger touchscreen interface, similar to a PADD, to provide users with more versatility. This new form factor has led to some officers referring to the TR-600 as a triPADD.

TR-590 Mark XI Tricorder

The previous model, the TR-590 Mark XI Tricorder, is currently still authorized for use but is gradually being phased out.
