Leica RedLine delivers seamless performance with Total GPS and Dual GPS for improved workflow

(Norcross, Ga., 4 March 2008)  Leica RedLine is more than just another new product for the construction site professional – it’s the world’s most versatile construction site positioning range solution. With the new “Total GPS” and “Dual GPS” capabilities, RedLine significantly improves the workflow on the construction site.

Total GPS: Uninterrupted productivity under all conditions
Total GPS changes the construction site workflow. It harnesses the power of Total Station and GNSS technologies to eliminate interruptions due to obstacles and offer a range of accuracies for every task from rough to finish grading. Even if there are no GPS signals available, such as under a bridge or a tunnel, Total GPS allows the Leica PowerTracker total station to automatically take over positioning and continues to provide millimeter accuracy. If visibility between the Leica PowerTracker and prism is cut, Total GPS uses GNSS technology to keep the machine on grade.

Using Leica RedLine sensors and the Leica PowerGrade 3D system on the machine, Total GPS offers the maximum flexibility in operation and upgrade possibilities. Total GPS takes advantage of TPS and GNSS to speed through projects with reduced machine downtime, improved quality, and increased operator. Total GPS puts the full power of these technologies for quick setup, all under control of the on-board PowerGrade 3D system.

Dual GPS: Reliable excavating with dual positioning
Dual GPS combines the advantages of both single and dual GNSS positioning for maximum excavator productivity. Dual positions provide precise bucket position in real-time even on moving platforms (e.g. barges or pontoons) without interrupting work. The unique Leica PowerBox and PowerAntenna combination allows on-the-pole survey tasks to be carried out with the PowerAntenna used on the machine, for example, quick stake outs or grade checks, while the machine continues to work with a single GNSS position from the PowerBox. While operating in single antenna mode, the operator must simply rotate the machine after tracking to a new location before 3D operation can commence.

Leica RedLine: The future of construction positioning
Leica RedLine is the most complete 3D positioning solution in the construction industry. From the office to the field and back again: Leica RedLine offers the perfect solution for each construction site design task and all machine control applications. RedLine provides products and solutions for the office, for base station set-up, data capturing and surveying as well as machine control and final as-built verification. Robust and modular design, accuracy and flexibility, all controlled by a simple user interface designed specifically with the construction site in mind for maximum time and cost savings in every phase of the project.
