Topcon Announces New Total Station with Enhanced Reflectorless Range
Topcon Positioning Group has announced the latest addition to its line of reflectorless total stations for the construction and mining market — the GPT-3500LN. With a measuring distance of 2000m, the GPT-3500 is designed to measure further than any non-prism instrument in its class.
“Incorporating the Topcon advanced time-of-flight pulse technology, the EDM is fast and powerful,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “The Topcon algorithm filters signal noise to provide accurate measurements even on dark and wet surfaces, where other reflectorless technology might fail.”
Along with its onboard data collection software, the GPT-3500LN can connect to an external field controller, enabling field to office connectivity with MAGNET® suite of software solutions. The system can also be paired with a prism to allow for a measurement range of up to 3000 metres.
Additional features include a rugged IP66 rated design, on-board TopField application software, and battery life of up to eight working hours.
