Overview for the Topcon PS 103A 3 Second Robotic Total Station
Take advantage of the exceptional technology and outstanding performance of the Topcon PS103A Robotic Total Station. Designed for fast and accurate single-person remote measurements, the PS103A features Topcon's exclusive TsShield security system, a long-range Bluetooth wireless communication system, and PowerTrac auto-tracking. With an accuracy of only 3-seconds, Topcon's Robotic Total Station is the ideal choice for professionals who want to take their performance to the next level.
The Topcon PS103 features Longlink, a unique communication system that uses Bluetooth to enable you to control the total station with a data controller at the prism pole. To control the total station remotely from a distance of nearly 2,000 feet, Longlink uses a small remote control unit attached to the top of the prism pole, combined with a 360-degree robotic prism. You save time, money, and improve productivity, since the entire measurement process can be completed by only one person.
Unsurpassed Robotic Capabilities
PowerTrac is the advanced auto-tracking technology that tracks the location of the prism automatically. PowerTrac is able to stay locked on target and deliver superior tracking using a laser beam emitted from the remote control unit that is on the prism pole. When a detector on the total station picks up the signal, the Topcon Robotic Total Station immediately turns in the direction of the prism, allowing you to continue measuring.
No need to worry about traffic or obstructions. PowerTrac's sophisticated technology continues to keep track of the prism's location wherever it moves. Even if the prism's location is accidentally lost, it can be picked up again in just a few seconds by the trigger key.
Ultimate Security and Maintenance with TsShield
TsShield's remarkable ability to instantly lock down your total station if lost or stolen gives you peace of mind. Using a coded signal, TsShield's web portal allows you to track the total station's location from anywhere in the world. You'll also benefit from the automatic notification of new firmware right in the control panel, ensuring you always have the latest updates at your fingertips.
Fast and Powerful Distance Measurement
Enjoy the convenience of reflectorless measurement at a distance of up to 3,280 feet, and prism measurement up to nearly 20,000 feet with the Topcon PS103's ultra-powerful EDM. An accuracy to only 0.06 inches and 0.9 second measuring time make measurement quick and easy.
Full-Featured Survey Software
Topcon offers Magnet software, the full-featured surveying software tool that allows the total station operator to perform all necessary surveying functions. Improve productivity by completing functions like description entry, calculations, and point collections, as well as lines and view points. You can even use the Magnet software to calculate COGO and adjustment functions using a field controller or the onboard computer.
Overall Superior Performance
Topcon's PS Robotic Total Station delivers outstanding performance, down to the smallest detail. You'll always have consistent, accurate angle measurements due to the self-calibrating advanced angle system. Rated "best in class" by surveying professionals, the technology boasts an exceptional level of angle measurement accuracy. With an IP65 rating, the rugged total station body is built to stand up to tough working conditions. The total station is dust-tight and protected against water jets from any angle, while the lightweight magnesium alloy housing allows for precise yet stable angle measurements.
Save data with your choice of the easy-to-access USB port, which provides up to 8 GB of memory, or use the R232C serial port to connect the robotic total station directly to a PC or laptop. Both ports keep your data safe from dust, water, and harmful debris.
The PS103A also features a high-quality control panel. The single-panel, LCD color touch screen allows you to enter letters, numbers or symbols with the 25 alphanumeric backlit keys. The Topcon Robotic Total Station comes with two batteries, each lasting for up to 4 hours of operating time.
Get ready to enjoy the benefits of the state-of-the-art technology of the Topcon PS103A Robotic Total Station. With it's numerous time and money saving features, you'll wonder how you ever managed without one.
