Overview for the Gowin TKS 202 2 Second Total Station
The Gowin Electronic Total Station (2-second) TKS202 has a proven track record of accuracy and reliability. Although originally used as a surveying instrument, the electronic total station's precision have made it to the instrument of choice for construction sites, crime and accident scenes, archaeological sites, and insurance agencies.
Use the tilt sensor to check for perfect leveling of your total station, and the atmospheric correction function to adjust for atmospheric fluctuations. Then zero in on your target with the telescope's 30X magnification and optical plummet, which give you a crystal clear image of the point you'd like to measure at a distance of up to 6,562-feet with a single prism.
While a single prism is sometimes sufficient, the Gowin gives you the option of adding a triple prism, extending the total station's measurement capabilities to nearly 9,000 ft.
The Gowin TKS202's preloaded versatile software makes numerous measuring functions as simple as pressing a few buttons. Determining station coordinates, calculating complicated spiral curves over long distances, determining the horizontal distance and height difference between a start point and a series of sub-selected points, and performing setting out are just some of the measurements that can be calculated by the total station's microprocessor.
Display and Keypad
Use the 24 character alphanumeric keyboard to enter data, or choose the softkeys to quickly input functions specific to your needs. Once your data is ready, you'll have an easy time reading it from the dual screen displays, which allow you to view the display no matter which direction the total station faces. The LCD screen is easy on your eyes, and features clear, crisp text that can be seen from any angle.
Long-life Battery and Memory
You'll also appreciate the exceptional performance of the Li-Ion battery, which provides 14 hours of continuous distance and angle measurement, or 60 hours measuring angles only. And you won't have to worry about the information you collect during all of that time. The internal memory stores a record 24,000 points - more than any other comparable total station- and you can upload or transfer information via a standard RS-232 data port.
In order for you to get the most from your Gowin 2-Second Total Station, the package also includes a plastic carrying case, battery charger with one Li-Ion battery, tool kit for adjusting and maintaining your total station, rain cover, instruction manual, and 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
You can boost your productivity even more by adding software and controllers from Topcon and Sokkia, ensuring the Gowin fits seamlessly in with the other total stations that you own. The raw data formats are even compatible with the Topcon GTS-6 and GTS-7.
