motorized total station theodolite can track a
target and take more than 15 XYZ coordinate
measurements per minute. It can measure vertical
and horizontal angles better than 1 arc second and
uses state-of-the-art EDM technology to measure
It can be visually fine-tuned to a cross-hair
target or placed into tracking mode to
automatically home in on or track the target. It
can be set up as a fully automated measurement
system for some applications.
The accuracy features are enhanced by the use of
real-time calibration against Invar scale bars, and
spherically mounted corner-cube retroreflectors.
See current work for
information on EMS' new automated measurement
system which replaces the traditional eyepiece with
a video sensor head. The system self-centers
on the target's video image.
