Monitoring prisms are complementary pieces of kit for your electronic distance measurement devices, such as total stations or GPS equipment. The optical coatings and ability to mount to objects and surfaces means that monitoring prisms consistently deliver accurate angle measurements for various surveying applications. Alongside our traditional monitoring prisms, we also offer a selection of monitoring ball prisms which provide pinpoint accuracy from any angle. Discover our survey equipment hire service for short or long term rentals of monitoring prisms, or browse our range of used surveying equipment for quality products at affordable prices.
There are several models of monitoring prism on the market and we have a selection of the very best. These include copper-coated and silver-coated varieties, both designed for deformation surveys or other situations where they need to be permanently mounted to a structure. In addition to our standard monitoring prisms, we also stock monitoring ball prisms.
A monitoring prism has many applications, being compatible with a wide variety of electronic distance measuring instruments. Of course, in these circumstances it’s not the distance that we are looking to measure, but the stability of the surroundings. These prisms can be used alongside laser levels, total stations, and theodolites to ensure high levels of precision and accuracy during deformation surveys. These prisms are used extensively in the field and are essential for the mining and tunnelling industries.
