Leica Geosystems Introduces New Series of Surveying Total Stations

Leica Geosystems today announced the introduction of the TPS800 series of total stations for a variety of surveying and construction applications.

The new-generation TPS800 products are fast, easy to learn, accurate, flexible and optimized for field usage.

The standard TC800 models provide extended-range electronic distance measuring up to 3,000 meters using an infrared laser beam with prisms or reflective targets.  The TCR800 models also offer reflectorless measurements up to 200 meters under good light and target visibility conditions using a visible red laser beam.  The narrow laser beam permits accurate, rapid measurements to small points, such as the corner of a building.  The user can quickly switch from reflectorless to IR measuring at the touch of a button.

The TPS800 products are available in three levels of accuracy:  2” (0.6mgon), 3” (1.0mgon) or 5” (1.5mgon).  All models feature a minimum reading of 1”.

The system has been designed for ease of use, with fast startup routines, a large high-resolution display, and alphanumeric keypad with mobile-telephone-style data entry.  There is even an easy-to-use function that permits shots to a hidden point pole to measure inaccessible points.

The TPS800 products come with a wide range of onboard software to improve efficiency in gathering and processing data, including optional COGO and Road Alignment applications.  An innovative “Construction” application combines all tasks that typically are executed in building and construction work into one workflow.  

Other features include standard camcorder batteries, electronic dual-axis compensator, endless drives and laser plummet.  A serial data interface allows communication with PCs and other devices via cable or Bluetooth wireless connections.
