Livemore, Calif. | February 17, 2021 – Sokkia announces the availability of new robotic total stations designed to improve job site productivity. The iX-1200 and iX-600 total stations are professional-level positioning tools for survey and layout in the building construction and infrastructure trades. Engineered for integration with field controllers, software and GNSS receivers, the total stations are designed as part of a full workflow solution.
Ray Kerwin, director of global product planning, said, “The high-performance technologies incorporated into the design provide increased prism-tracking strength. Through a combination of optical sensing and ultrasonic motors, UltraTrac technology helps users stay locked onto the prism — and productive with less down time resulting from the need to reacquire prism lock — even in dynamic job site conditions.
“The system also features the RC-PR5A remote controller option used on the prism pole so the user can quickly and simply reestablish the connection between prism and total station.”
Additionally, advanced users can take measurements in almost any environment while easily switching to the most appropriate technology — total station measurement integrated with GNSS measurement — through an optional upgrade to Hybrid Positioning technology.
The total stations, available in multiple accuracy models, can be used with the SHC6000 field controller and GeoPro or MAGNET Field software for optimal performance. Additional information on the iX is available on the Sokkia site here.
