Overview for the Sokkia DX 105AC 5 Second Motorized Total Station
The Sokkia DX-105AC (5-Second) Motorized Total Station helps you take precise and accurate survey measurements in less time than ever before. The auto-pointing feature shortens the amount of time spent targeting the prism by enabling the Sokkia DX to automatically find the prism, while the exclusive MAGNET on-board software allows you to easily and confidently calculate complex survey and engineering functions.
Not only can you perform extremely reliable angle measurement with the groundbreaking advanced angle measurement system, you can even use Bluetooth wireless communication to connect an external data collector to the DX total station, turning the motorized surveying instrument into an economical robotic total station.
It’s easy to accurately target prisms with Sokkia’s Direct Aiming Technology. Even in poor lighting conditions, the Sokkia Motorized Survey Total Station is able to precisely locate the direction of the prism. That’s because the DX uses an intelligent algorithm that automatically collimates to the prisms, giving the correct angle readings. Just “rough aim” the Sokkia DX, press the trigger button, and you’ll get the exact measurement to your target with 5-second accuracy.
The Sokkia DX Robotic Upgrade Kit is an auto tracking firmware upgrade for the Sokkia DX total station series. This extremely reliable auto-tracking capability enables the total station to automatically point to the prism for one-man operation and rapid measurements. It comes on a USB memory stick and can be installed at any time on any previously sold Sokkia DX-105AC total station.
Bluetooth Wireless Communication
The exclusive Longlink communication allows you to enjoy the benefits of an economical robotic total station by connecting the DX total station with an external data collector. Record data for codes, as-builts and rod heights at the prism rod at a distance of up to 984 feet – all while eliminating the most common field errors. You’ll save money while reaping the benefits of a state of the art motorized total station.
The Sokkia Total Station features numerous measurement options, so you can choose the option that best fits the job at hand. Quickly measure distances reflectorlessly, with reflective sheet targets or with single or triple prisms. You’ll especially appreciate Sokkia’s patented RED-tech technology, which uses an ultra-narrow beam that makes it easy to measure to locations that would normally be difficult to measure accurately.
Confidently measure to roof overhangs, manhole covers or building corners with unerring accuracy. Unlike standard total stations which have wide laser beams, the Sokkia laser beam measures only the target area and not the surrounding area.
Plus, the motorized Sokkia Total Station uses only one beam for both the laser pointer and the EDM, which prevents frustrating measurement errors while ensuring fast and accurate aiming. And with a measuring speed of only 0.9 seconds, tasks like ROAD, coordinate geometry, and more are finished in half the time of a standard total station.
The DX-105AC Surveying Total Station allows you to easily and conveniently measure to difficult or dangerous locations such as bridges, building scaffolding or overhead power lines. Save time, boost productivity, and improve safety while reflectorlessly measuring distances from as little as 12 inches to 3,280 feet. RED-tech EDM technology gives you value by continuing to take precise, accurate distance measurements, even in locations that are poorly lit, wooded, or otherwise difficult to take measurements. For example, it’s common for standard total stations to accidentally target a reflective object other than the target, especially when using reflective sheets. The Sokkia DX, however, lets measurement begin in seconds with the auto-pointing feature, which can quickly find the prism to start measuring.
Powerful MAGNET Field Software
The MAGNET software family allows you to provide the standard of service that your clients expect. MAGNET Field, the powerful on-board software, computes standard surveying and engineering measurement functions such as coordinate geometry, ROADS, stakeout, and much more. MAGNET Cloud is a complete data management solution that offers a seamless connection between the total station, an external data controller and numerous other devices. Exchange data, track assets, or share data with a coworker simply by using your smartphone to transfer information from the Cloud.
Exclusive TSshield Security
You will also appreciate the piece of mind gained by TSshield, the world's first advanced security system designed to protect your total station if it is lost or stolen. The advanced system includes a security feature that locks your Motorized Total Station if access is attempted by unauthorized users.
TSshield allows you to manage Sokkia total stations online through a web portal, enabling you to locate and secure the surveying instrument. In the event that the total station is lost or stolen, TsShield's online portal allows you to view its location on a map and lock or unlock the total station as needed. Receive notification of firmware releases directly from the control panel, and then download the updates straight from the online portal. You can also use the online portal to manage a specific total station's operating time more effectively, saving you time and maintaining job effectiveness.
Smart Design with Connectivity to Sokkia Data Collectors
The single panel Sokkia Survey Total Station features a TFT QVGA color LCD touch screen, backlit for easy viewing in dim or dark lighting conditions. The 26-key alphanumeric keyboard allows convenient entry of data in either numbers, symbols or letters, and is also backlit for easy visibility. The Sokkia DX also includes numerous ways to store data: the total station’s internal memory stores up to 500MB of data, and the included USB stick and holds up to 8MB of additional memory. It also features an IP65 rating, and is not only dust-tight but also protected against access to hazardous part and water jets at any angle.
For field operations that require a data collector, the Sokkia DX total station can be used with any of Sokkia's data collectors, such as the Juniper Mesa,SHC2500, SHC250, SHC236 and SHC25.
This Sokkia total station package includes a hard carrying case, USB memory key, two detachable and rechargeable Li-Ion batteries, a battery charger, power cable, lens cap, lens hood, lens brush, screwdriver, tool pouch, laser caution sign board, adjusting pin, cleaning cloth, carrying strap for hard case and user manual.
