Total stations are a form of electronic theodolite regularly used in the land surveying and construction industry. They offer increased productivity and cost savings by allowing the quick and accurate measurements of angles and distances on-site. A popular choice among construction professionals, total stations help you collect data and process it at record speed, minimising the time you need to spend in the field.
Unlike a mechanical total station, which is a manual instrument, robotic total stations can be operated and controlled at a distance by a trained operator. After the initial set up at a particular point, the device can be adjusted remotely using bluetooth technology. This means that the surveying and construction process can be performed by a single individual, rather than a dedicated total station team. It is easy to adjust for distance as well as vertical and horizontal angles and the built-in computer will collate the relevant data with total accuracy.
What this means for customers in the building construction industry is a smoother surveying process. It lets you spend less time on site and, thanks to the accuracy of robotic total stations, results in less rework on your construction project. This provides a significant increase in productivity, saving time and producing fewer mistakes.
Whenever we introduce new technology to our online store, we like to ensure it comes from manufacturers we can trust. Chief among them are Trimble and Spectra Precision, both highly-regarded in the surveying and construction industry for the quality of their devices. Both manufacturers have produced exceptional robotic total stations that offer value for money for private customers and commercial companies alike. Benefiting from a range of impressive features and high levels of accuracy compared with their competitors, a robotic total station from either company is an asset on all miner of projects.
Robotic total stations are most often seen in the land surveying and construction industries, where the offer improved on-site efficiency by streamlining several essential tasks. These include location surveys and distance measurement – both crucial to civil engineering works – both of which help with saving time as you create and collect data.
