Livermore, Calif. – January 14, 2011 – Topcon Positioning System’s (TPS) new GTS-240NW series of total stations are designed to provide “unmatched functionality and dependability in its class, backed by Topcon’s industry-leading technologies,” according to Denny Welch, senior vice president of the TPS survey business unit.
The new system features Topcon’s onboard TopField and Road software, which “dramatically increases efficiency in topo data collection, construction layout, as well as road stakeout tasks,” Welch said. The new 24-key alphanumeric keyboard allows for “quick inputting of point numbers, codes, and other essential data.”
Other key features of the GTS-240NW series include:
• 2.5” highest telescope resolving power
• Point guide for stakeout/layout
• Laser plummet for quick set up
• Bluetooth® wireless connectivity
• IP66 dust and water protection rating
• 10-hour battery operation
Welch said, “With the enhanced functionality, the GTS-240NW allows for data collection and layout work without using an external controller or PC.” For end users preferring to use a field controller, the new series provides the wireless capability for a convenient connection.
