With what is said to be its combination of the latest tracking, motorised turning, angle accuracy and software technology, the new PS-AS series instruments are designed for applications such as stakeout and as a key component of a Local Positioning System, used for 3D machine control.
“The PS-AS has a strong prism-tracking ability and the fastest reacquisition time in the industry,” said Davies. “Tracking faster with high accuracy measurements equates to a savings of time and money on every job.”
Key features of the PS-AS series include TSshield: Topcon’s advanced security and maintenance technology; PowerTrac technology, said to increase prism tracking power; and what Davies says is a “fast and powerful EDM.” The new series also includes Topcon’s exclusive LongLink communications technology, advanced angle accuracy and a water resistant IP65 design.
Data collector software options include Topcon’s Pocket3D or MAGNET Field Site.
The PS-AS series is available in 1 and 3 arc second interval versions. The standard kit includes two batteries, dual-tray battery charger, USB flash drive, and accessories.
