Overview for the Leica Builder 300 9 Second Reflectorless Total Station
Easily perform even the most complicated surveying measurements with the Leica Builder 300 (9-Second) Reflectorless Total Station. Designed especially for constructions sites, the rugged total station features a sophisticated yet simple to use interface, even if you're a beginner.
The Leica Builder Reflectorless Total Station allows you to take precise measurements up to distances of 395 feet, without the need for a detail pole operator. You save time, money, and improve safety while surveying in dangerous or difficult to access locations, such as bridges, overhead power lines, hostile pets, or natural bodies of water.
Easy Setup Wizard
Getting started with the Leica Geosystems Total Station is easy thanks to the computerized set up wizard. The 6-line LCD graphic display is crystal clear, while the intuitive interface ensures you'll be able to setup your total station successfully - even if you've never done it before. Start by following the display to level the builder, define your control line, enter desired offset values straight from your original plan, and set out or record the points. Within minutes, your Leica Total Station will be ready to use.
Pinpoint Laser Technology for Precise Measurements
Taking precise measurements with a standard laser can be imprecise and inefficient. That's because standard laser beams are wider than the Leica laser, which means every time you aim the laser, you not only measure the target, but the area around the target as well. That leads to inaccurate measurements, causing problems later on. The patented Leica laser, on the other hand, is narrower, allowing it to be aimed with bulls'-eye precision under and around common obstacles like telephone poles or tree branches.
Versatile and Easy to Learn Software
Leica's robust software suite, PowerSite, is included with every Leica Builder Electronic Total Station. Easy to learn, the versatile software can perform setup with control line or coordinates, and follows the same procedure used when setting up with tape. You can even 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 easy choice of setup positions enables you to take measurements quickly and efficiently.
Coupled with the Windows- based Construction Data Manager, you'll be able to easily upload or download data, install your choice of 3 of 24 optional languages on the control panel, or transfer data directly to your PC or laptop. You can even use a handheld data collector so that your data is always within reach.
Eight Pre-loaded Measurement Functions for Maximum Usability
The Leica 300 Builder comes complete with eight different pre-loaded software functions which can be quickly accessed through the applications program menu. Use the layout function to ensure alignment accuracy of columns, fencing lines, and formworks, and to ensure against racking in greenhouses or other structures.
The area and volume function is perfect for checking to see if those windows fit, or to be doubly sure how much asphalt to order for a parking lot. Ideal for tender preparations of all kind, the area and volume function also allows for capturing of aligned surfaces, giving you the data you need on the spot.
Keep track of your earthworks progress by instantly estimating how much yardage was really moved at the end of the day: the Leica Builder 300 allows you to get fast and accurate volume determination so that you won't need to guess when doing mass haul cuts and fills, stockpile monitoring, and cutting to formation.
Other application programs also allow you to perfrom numerous measurements quickly and easily. With a few presses of a button, you'll be able to check if drainage is at the right grade, if formwork is vertical, or whether or not sufficient clearance exists between a crane and a roof. Plus, all checks can be done on site, giving you immediate results - even when measuring to non-accessible points.The Leica 300 Total Station's microprocessor does all the hard work for you.
Use a USB stick to upload or download data, and record up to 15,000 points to the Leica Total Station, so that you'll never need to worry about losing your data. You can also choose to use the cable-free connection to upload a new AutoCAD plan on site, or transfer data directly from your PC or laptop with the R232 serial port.
The Leica 300 Builder also features 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.
No matter what purpose you decide to use the Leica Builder 300 (9-second) Reflectorless Total Station for, you'll find that Leica Builder is the best solution for helping you save time, money, and improve safety, allowing you to spend more time focusing on being a leader in your industry.
