Auto tracking function enhances your productivity drastically

Auto tracking

The DS series, with the auto tracking function, requires no operator at the total station - it locks and tracks prism constantly enabling the immediate measurement as soon as target prism is located at any point, also operator to control survey from the rover side. With the auto tracking function, time for alignment adjustment and focusing operations, required on the manual total station, are completely eliminated, thus increasing measurement speed and enhancing productivity of measurement work.

Remarkable differences in productivities

  • TOPO
    The Auto tracking function is very effective to perform TOPO survey. You just need to carry a prism pole with data collector and visit points to be measured. Numerous points can be measured and collected very quickly with such simple operation.

  • Stake-out
    Users also benefit from the auto tracking function for in stake-out survey work. It is so easy and quick to find stake-out points, by just following navigation on the screen of data collector, without communicating with operator at the instrument or moving along with the fixed direction. The more stake-out points you locate, you can get higher productivity compared with conventional instrument.

New Auto Collimation "Xpointing Technology"

New Auto Collimation  Xpointing Technology Xpointing

The Topcon DS unitizes Xpointing technology featuring a new intelligent algorithm that automatically aims to the prisms with precise by corrected angle readings.
The Xpointing technology works even in dim or dark conditions where the prism is difficult to be found. Whatever the job requires and wherever operators must go, the DS makes your job done easier and faster while still maintaining accuracy.

Fast and Powerful EDM

long distance

The 1,000m (3,280ft) reflectorless measurement can be achieved by the smaller beam spot size of the EDM. Measurements can be as fast as 0.9 seconds in the accurate fine mode to most object surfaces over the longer distance.

Exclusive LongLink™ Communications

LongLink LongLink

Can be used to establish a wireless linkage with a data terminal at the prism side, up to 300m* distance away. Longlink™ provides the user the ability to enter code descriptors at the remote prism pole enabling more effective data collection, as well as graphical navigations in stakeout work.
*subject to environmental conditions for radio transmission
