You may need a Topcon total station for your next big mine surveying or construction trip with your company. Or maybe you have a surveying hobby and decided that this total station is what you're looking for. Whatever the case, you may want to consider the following key points before making your purchase.
Picking the right Topcon total station begins with asking yourself what task you want it to perform and how you want it to work. Are you using it in mine surveying or construction? Finding a Topcon total surveying station requires considering the following broad categories:
After you determine which price range, model, and condition you want, contemplate what unique components you want your Topcon total station to have. Angular accuracy and EDM range will affect the efficiency in which you will be able to perform your specific job or hobby. Some devices have a communication port and dual display. You may also want the Topcon total station to come equipped with its original battery and/or case.
There are a few factors you may want to keep in mind if you have decided to purchase a used Topcon total station. In addition to deciding if you want it to come with the original case and battery, you'll want to think about the year it was released and how much use it has. You may find that a preowned Topcon total station relased from 1998 that has had minimal use fits your needs better than a Topcon total station from model year 2010 that has had heavy use.
With the latest total station technology in an IP65 rated housing, the OS can handle whatever you need to accomplish. Built for on-the-go tasks with a far reaching, precise firing EDM, extended use batteries, and data collection software right on the instrument. Take charge of sites with world-class accuracy from the OS series by Topcon.
High accuracy and responsive robotic total stations for sale or for hire in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin and Launceston in Australia. After-sales service, repair and calibration services for your total station are also available via our national network of Service Centres, which means maintenance is on your terms and your team can productive in the field for longer.
The super long battey life provides for almost a full week's worth of work in the field before you need to recharge the battery. The batteries can be used with our Topcon HiPer V GNSS receiver as well as our other current Topcon total stations.
Dual Graphic backlit LCD Display on both sides of the ES Series total station have the same display--for those jobs when you are inverting the telescope, you still read the display or get measurements without having to turn the instrument. Great for those days when you need to turn multiple angles/distances to traverse points.
The quick and easy trigger key is located on the right-had side of the total station. This allows the instrument operator to easily and quickly press the trigger key right from the horizontal tangent to get a measurement.
MAGNET Field is a powerful and intuitive field application software that enables you to collect survey mapping data and perform construction and road layout using total stations, levels, and GNSS receivers.
We perform the tough environmental tests to ensure long-term operation even under the rough site environments. GM Series total stations are thoroughly inspected with dust-proof and water-proof test chambers. In addition, the various tests against vibration, drop, temperature, and humidity were successfully passed to achieve the best environmental spec. The measuring distance accuracy test on base line and the instrument leveling and angle accuracy test and adjustment by collimator system ensure your satisfaction on GM Series product quality.
Among the refinements for electronic distance measure instruments (EDMI) were electronic data recording devices that accepted data directly from the instrument and allowed for downloading to a variety of devices. Eventually, the need for separate instruments for measuring angles and distances was ended with the introduction of the total station, which combines a theodolite and an EDMI.
The National Geodetic Survey Aeronautical Survey Program obtained its first total station, a Topcon ET-1, in 1985. When the distance range on the total station models improved sufficiently, use of stand-alone EDMI for airport surveys ended.
Currently, a total station, which allows for distance measurements of up to 3,900 feet (1,200 meters) without a reflector, is being tested and evaluated. A hand-held, reflector-less laser made by Riegl is also used by the Aeronautical Survey Program to measure distances to airport obstructions such as tops of trees.

The global robotic total stations (RTS) market reached a value of US$ 736.3 Million in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 1136.3 Million by 2027 exhibiting a CAGR of 7.10% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.A robotic total station (RTS) refers to an electronic instrument that allows remote operation. It is extensively used to measure vertical and horizontal angles, surveying, excavating, and constructing dams and plant chimneys. It is utilized to perform calculations and inspection as it consists of a combination of an electronic distance meter and electronic theodolite.
Significant growth in the construction industry across the globe is a prime factor driving the market growth. RTS is widely used to increase productivity and accuracy as it significantly simplifies the construction layout process. In line with this, the increasing demand for robotic total stations for modernizing surveying tools and techniques for accurate calculation of coordinates, land surveying, and eliminating manual errors of recording and reading is driving the growth of the market.
The publisher provides an analysis of the key trends in each sub-segment of the global robotic total stations (RTS) market, along with forecasts at the global, regional and country level from 2022-2027. Our report has categorized the market based on type, application and end user.Breakup by Type:
Topcon Positioning Group displayed its GTL-1000 scanner at Intergeo 2019, which took place Sept. 17-19 in Stuttgart, Germany. According to the company, the GTL-1000 is a compact scanner integrated with a fully featured robotic total station, enabling a site engineer to complete a layout and scan on a single setup. read more
Performing a survey of utilities exposed during a construction project using a laser scanner and total station can be cost prohibitive and as a consequence is rarely done. A research project involving Costain and Bentley has found that photogrammetry using a consumer grade smartphone results in a 3D model of comparable accuracy to a laser scan survey and is much more cost efficient. They have also found a way to make 3D models created from the pictures captured with a smartphone available over the web. 2b1af7f3a8
