Monitoring prisms are complementary pieces of kit for your electronic distance measurement devices, such as total stations or GPS equipment. Its optical coatings and ability to mount to objects and surfaces means that it consistently delivers accurate angle measurements for various surveying applications.
Alongside our traditional monitoring prisms, we offer a selection of monitoring ball prisms which provide pinpoint accuracy from any angle.
There are several models of monitoring prism on the market and we have a selection of the very best available for purchase from our online store. 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.
