What is robotic total station?
Simple in concept, a Robotic Total Station (RTS) is a Total Station that allows remote operation. This means you only need one operator and can perform far more calculations and inspections in less time than with a traditional Total Station.
What is a Leica TS16?
Leica TS16 robotic total station is a self-learning hard worker, just like yourself. It combines the engaging Leica Captivate field software, ATRplus for a robust targeting performance, PowerSearch for prism fast search, a camera for image-assisted surveying and documentation.
What is the disadvantage of total station?
The main limitation of using a total station is to conduct a topographic survey is the line of sight and range. It cannot measure what the laser cannot reach.
Which brand total station is best?
Leica Geosystems CS35 Construction Tablet Computer. Leica MPR122 360° Prism. Leica GPR113 Circular Mini Prism, w/ Red Holder. Leica iCON CC80 Tablet Computer. Leica iCON iCT30 Construction Layout Tool. ICON iCR80 Robotic Construction Total Station.
Which is better GPS or total station?
Total Station based systems provide the highest possible degree of accuracy for site positioning, stakeout, grade checking and measurement. A Total Station-based system has a more limited range than a GNSS-based system and is better suited for projects where accuracy is a key factor.
What are the four types of total stations?
Scanning Total Stations. Robotic Total Stations. Autolock Total Stations. Total Mechanical Stations.
What the difference between an RTK and a total station?
Survey with GPS Real Time Kinematic (RTK) has the advantage of being faster and easier than the total station, but on the other hand the accuracy of GPS Real Time Kinematic (RTK) is considered lacking.
Why is Leica overpriced?
“First, Leicas are made in small numbers, which is more expensive. Second, they’re made for engineering quality without any regard for price. Leica fans see this and embrace it, but value-seekers think the prices are insane.”
Why Leica has no autofocus?
Despite having patented autofocus technologies as early as 1960, no Leica M rangefinder has ever had autofocus. Rumor has it that back in the day, the company decided that all its customers knew how to focus manually, and they wouldn’t want to rely on the camera to do it for them.
