Overview for the Topcon GTS 252 2 Second Total Station
The Topcon GTS-252 Total Station is a compact and durable optical instrument for recording precise distance and angle measurements with 2-second accuracy. As part of Topcon’s new GTS200 series, this total station is ideal for land surveying and construction stake-out and works with a variety of prisms and data collectors for long-range distance measurements.
Accurate and Reliable
Along with 2-second accuracy, the Topcon GTS-252 has 30x magnification allowing surveyors to read slope and horizontal distances up to 7,545 feet with a single prism and take angle measurements to as little as 0.3 second.
This field surveying instrument features an enhanced absolute encoder that can recall its last position as soon as the power is turned on. It also has a tilt sensor and dual-axis compensator for perfect leveling and an optical plummet to precisely mark the total station’s location.
Survey Software and Memory
With onboard software built-in, measuring points for calculating or processing is fast and easy. And with 24,000 points of internal memory, the GTS252 total station can store large amounts of field data, which can then be transferred using a standard Topcon 9-pin cable to your PC or data collector.
Functionality and Features
This Topcon total station comes standard with a dual display and alphanumeric keyboard for fast data entry. The IP-54 environmental rating protects it against dust and water splashes, while the rechargeable Ni-MH battery provides up to 9 hours of continuous distance and angle measuring, or up to 40 hours measuring angles only!
Compatible with Topcon Data Collectors
For more advanced layout tasks, the GTS-252 can be used with any of Topcon's field controllers capable of running MAGNET Field software, such as the Topcon Tesla, FC-2600, FC-250, FC-236 and FC-25.
This GTS252 total station package comes with a lens cap, tool kit with case, plastic rain cover, silicon cloth, battery, battery charger, carrying case and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The excellent precision and durability of the Topcon's GTS-252 total station makes it perfect for every day surveying. With 2-second angular accuracy, long range distance measurements, onboard programs and plenty of data storage, this land surveying tool provides a value priced measuring solution.
