Leica Geosystems Announces New Features for Sprinter M-Series Electronic Levels

(Norcross, Ga., 5 September 2006) Leica Geosystems today announced the release of new firmware for the Sprinter 100M electronic levels with new line-leveling applications and on-board GSI commands.

The new line-leveling applications cover the most common field leveling procedures practiced by engineers and surveyors, including backsight and foresight (BF), backsight, foresight and foresight, backsight (BFFB) and backsight and intermediate sight and foresight (BIF). The new on-board commands facilitate two-way communications between the instrument and a PDA or data collector.

Existing Leica Sprinter 100M instruments can be upgraded for a nominal fee, and new units may be ordered with this optional firmware.

“The Sprinter products have established a strong reputation for reliable, fast, error-free leveling on a wide range of construction jobs,” said Dan Dykhuis, director, construction sales and marketing. “The new line-leveling functions will improve productivity in the field and will provide full elevation control in any construction site.”
