Topcon Positioning Systems has released the MS Series of high precision robotic total stations in both North and South America. The senior vice president of the Topcon Positioning Systems Survey Business Unit, Denny Welch said that the MS measuring station opened a new era in ultra precision measurements.
Topcon Positioning Systems designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets.
The series it has just released includes the MS05AX with the industry’s highest 0.5” angle accuracy and the MS1AX for 1” angle accuracy. Mr Welch said that the MS05AX provides ultra-precision while the MS1AX provides long-range and versatility.
He added that the MS series ensures enhanced precision and productivity in a wide-range of applications. Department of Transportations (DOTS), high-end civil engineering firms, high-accuracy land surveying firms, universities, anyone with monitoring, tunneling and 3D industrial measurement needs will realize benefits from the MS Series as per him.
The series can be used for large scale 3D measurement applications and 2D monitoring function in real time projects. Mr Welch said that High speed is one of the key advantages for long distance measurement and tracking. This tracking can be achieved with fast turning speed and the incredible accuracy of the series which adds up to make the system ideal for the most precise topographic survey work such as high-precision control establishment or super accurate stakeout or as-built construction tasks as per him.
