First publishedin World Highways
Topcon is introducing its MAGNET Construct 2.0 app to deliver connectivity between more instruments. The MAGNET Construct 2.0 is the firm’s next generation app that is intended to drive a wide variety of Topcon total stations from a user’s smartphone or tablet. The first version of the app was purpose-built to drive the LN-100 Layout Navigator system alone. This unit is now available for most Topcon instruments and can run from Android devices or the latest Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch hardware. According to the firm, the MAGNET Construct 2.0 app offers options to wirelessly connect to and drive a total station for fast measurements as well as graphical guidance for data. The cross–platform compatibility of the MAGNET Construct 2.0 app is said to make precise measurement solutions for diverse applications more accessible.
MAGNET Construct also offers secure connectivity to MAGNET Enterprise web services for real-time data exchange from active project sites to and from the office. The app is available on both the Apple App Store as well as Google Play.
