Mini prisms are used extensively within the surveying industry as a way to accurately measure distances between two or more points. They offer many benefits to the professional surveyor, including increased accuracy (particularly compared to the optical method of calculating distance), and improved productivity. They are usually attached to a prism pole, a carrier, or even a surface, when used for monitoring. With so many different types of carriers and prism poles on the market, it’s important to get the right adapter for the job.
While it’s perfect possible to rig up a prism pole on-site without using a specialist adapter, it’s not advisable for precision use. You’re unlikely to get the same height offset as you would with the appropriate adapter to connect to the poles or other devices. With the right connector, you can assure a stable fit for your mini prism pole, guaranteeing the highest possible accuracy while on site.
We have an extensive selection of survey accessories in permanent stock, which makes it simple to find the perfect prism pole adapter for your project. Whatever tools you’re using on site, we can help you attach the appropriate adapter in place. This includes all standard reflectors, as well as branded models.
As well as attaching mini prisms to poles and surfaces, we also supply a range of connectors suitable for use with tripods, theodolites, GPS equipment, and more. From tribrach adapters to connect a prism to your tripod, to GPS antenna adapters for maximum precision, we have everything you need in stock.
