Overview for the Sokkia FX 101 1 Second Reflectorless Total Station
The Sokkia FX-101 Total Station with 1-second accuracy provides the advantage of on-board MAGNET Field, a cloud-based application software that enables surveyors to calculate precise measurements without using a data collector. As part of the Sokkia FX series, this highly-accurate reflectorless total station features high-end EDM, long-range Bluetooth and an advanced security and maintenance system. It also has an advanced angle encoder for stable and precise angle measurements. With USB port for easy file transfer, alphanumeric keyboard and touchscreen display, this optical instrument is the ideal choice for topographic surveying.
Reflectorless EDM and Advanced Angle Calibration
Sokkia’s exclusive RED-Tech EDM technology offers a tight beam signal and strong returns from dark or wet surfaces. This ultra-narrow EDM beam precisely measures walls, corners and through fence openings and tree branches in only .9 seconds. In reflectorless mode, this survey total station measures up to 1,640 feet away and approximately 16,400 feet to a standard prism with an incredible 2mm+2ppm accuracy. In addition, its coaxial green or red guide light provides fast and accurate aiming.
For extremely reliable angle measurement, the Sokkia FX101 has groundbreaking Independent Angle Calibration System (IACS) technology that allows the instrument to adjust its own angle measurement system. A motion clamp and tangent screw are also integrated to ensure stable angle positions even when pressing the touchscreen and keyboard. This Sokkia total station also has an EDM trigger key that allows surveyors to easily and quickly get measurements with the push of a button.
Dual-axis compensation ensures accurate leveling even on rough terrain and a built-in laser plummet with 5 brightness levels allows for quick instrument setting in all lighting conditions.
Built-in MAGNET Field Software
MAGNET Field is a cloud-based data collection software that seamlessly connects survey data in the field and office. It offers an easy to use and productive graphical interface with large touch icons that optimizes the large color touchscreen display of the Sokkia FX total station for viewing points and lines. With the onboard Windows CE 6.0 operating system, this field software features many stakeout, roading and coordinate geometry (COGO) applications that eliminate the need for a data collector.
Featuring Bluetooth Class 1 wireless technology, this survey instrument enables reliable communication with a handheld computer up to 1,000 feet away! This offers flexibility for stakeout and other field applications that require the use of a field controller at the prism pole. The system becomes very productive, similar to a robotic system where the instrument man simply needs to follow, aim, and focus on the remote prism.
Topcon TSshield Security System
TSshield is an advanced security feature of the FX total station, which allows the owner to disable the device by sending a coded signal and track its location if it is misplaced or stolen. The same module also offers daily connectivity to cloud-based Sokkia servers and automatically sends on-screen alerts for available software updates.
Connectivity and Long-lasting Battery
Easily store and transfer files to your PC or data collector with its large 500 MB internal memory, 8GB USB flash memory and RS-232C serial port. The FX-101 works up to 20 hours on a single charge and is dustproof and water resistant with its IP-65 rating.
For field operations that require a data collector, the FX-101 total station can be used with any of Sokkia's field controllers, such as the Juniper Mesa, SHC2500, SHC250, SHC236 and SHC25.
This Sokkia total station package comes with a lens cap, lens hood, lens brush, tool kit, USB stick, carry case with straps, adjusting pin, cleaning cloth, battery, battery charger and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
