Overview for the Leica Builder 200 6 Second Reflectorless Total Station
The Leica Builder 200 (6-Second) Reflectorless Total Station combines innovative technology with superior workmanship, allowing you to perform all of your measurements with ease. The Leica Builder Total Station is fast and easy to operate, even without special training. Its' robustness and versatility have made it a popular choice in numerous fields, such as surveying, construction, landscaping, archaeology, steel construction, and crime and accident scene reconstruction.
The Leica Builder Reflectorless Total Station offers precise and accurate measurements of up to 260 feet without a reflector, and 820 feet with reflector tape. Since the technology of a reflectorless total station allows you to get data without placing a prism at the target point, you'll save time and money. The surveying instrument will also allow for improved safety by allowing you to gain access to locations that were previously dangerous or difficult to reach, such as scaffolding, checking clearance of power lines, or natural obstacles like large bodies of water or unstable ground.
Setup Wizard for Easy Setup
The Leica Geosystems 6-second Total Station is designed to help you quickly and easily complete all measuring tasks at your survey site from the beginning of your project until the end.The simple, clear and intuitive graphical interface is easy to use, even for beginners. Start first with the Leica 200 setup wizard, which makes setup quick and trouble-free. Just follow the wizard to level the Builder, define your control line, enter desired offset values from plan, and follow the display to set out or record the points you need. It's easy, and takes only a minute or two.
Pinpoint Laser Technology For Precise Measurements
Unlike a wide laser beam that can give you inaccurate measurements by measuring the surrounding area, the Leica optical device's laser pointer features pinpoint technology, which allows you to focus the laser exactly on the point you need measured. Measuring around obstacles like fences, telephone poles, or tree branches is simple with the Leica laser, since the narrow beam cuts right to the spot you need to reach. The laser beam can also be used as a pointer, and can be turned on or off with the touch of a button.
You will also be able to precisely measure the distance to walls and corners with the Leica Builder Total Station. Try measuring the corner of a roof with a standard laser beam, and you'll find that the broad laser has measured not just the corner of the roof, but the wall of the house directly underneath. The Leica Builder's narrow beam will target only what you want - the corner.
Versatile and Simple to Learn Application Software
Use the Leica 200 Total Station's PowerSite Software right from the start, even if you don't have previous experience using a total station. The versatile software is easy to learn, and is designed to suit the specific needs of surveying sites. Setup with control line or coordinates, for example, follows the same procedure used when setting up with tape, and both also use the preset axis automatically as the reference line, allowing you to work with line and offset values straight from your original plan. And of course, the free choice of setup positions enables you to take measurements quickly and easily.
The Leica Builder Electronic Total Station comes with Construction Data Manager, a Windows based application that supports the exchange of data between the Leica total station and your PC. The Construction Data Manager can be used for data import and export, data handling, and upload of firmware and additional languages. The Construction Data Manager also works seamlessly with a PC or handheld interface for data collection.
The Construction Data Manager also works with the measurement functions included in the Leica Builder Total Station. These five predefined measurement functions allow you to calculate measurements for a wide spectrum of construction tasks and facilitate daily work in the field, such as layout, as-built, angle and distance, tie distance, and area and volume.
The Area function can help you determine how many roof tiles you'll need for that roof, if those windows will fit on your newly-built house, or let you double-check how much asphalt you need for a soon-to-be paved parking lot. The As-Built function allows you to record as-builts quickly and accurately, while the Line Layout function makes it easy to check columns, formwork, greenhouses, racking, fencing lines or terraces for structural alignment. The Volume function means you'll no longer be stuck rough-guessing truckloads. The Leica Builder's fast and accurate volume determination will help you keep right on top of your earthworks progress.
The Leica 300 Builder also includes several features that make using your total station even easier. The Builder gives you multilingual support by allowing you to view up to 3 languages on the total station's control panel. You can choose from a total of 24 languages that are available in the Construction Data Manager. And there's no need to worry about unauthorized use of your Leica Builder Total Station: the Leica Builder possesses a Theft Protection Feature, which prompts the user for a Personal Identification Number after start-up. If the wrong PIN is typed in five times, the system locks down, but can be opened up with the Personal Unblocking Code found on the total station's delivery papers.
You'll also enjoy the Leica Builder's endless drives, which hold the total station securely while giving full 360 degree rotation. You not only save time, but the Builder remains steady at all times, without the bulky locking knobs that can cause errors if not locked.
Even though the Leica Builder was built to withstand heavy use at construction sites, numerous other professionals are finding it a valuable tool for gathering the measurements they need. Landscapers, gardeners and archaeologists are discovering that the Leica Builder enables them to provide superior service while saving time and money. Regardless of your profession, the Leica Builder 200(6-Second) Reflectorless Total Station will help you fulfill all of the measuring tasks you need quickly and accurately.
