A total station is a surveying instrument used in construction, land surveying, and other related fields to measure distances and angles with high precision. A conventional total station requires an operator to manually aim and focus the instrument, while a robotic total station has automated tracking capabilities, allowing it to follow a remote controller and target, significantly reducing the need for constant manual adjustments.
When selecting a total station, consider factors such as the instrument’s accuracy, measurement range, angular accuracy, battery life, data storage capacity, and software compatibility. Additionally, assess whether a conventional total station or a robotic one is more suitable for your specific surveying tasks and budget.
Generally, robotic total stations are more expensive than their conventional counterparts due to their advanced tracking and automation features. However, the price difference can vary depending on the brand, model, and additional functionalities offered. It’s essential to weigh the benefits of increased efficiency and reduced manpower against the upfront cost.
Total stations and robotic total stations typically have a measurement range that varies from a few hundred meters to several kilometers, depending on the instrument’s specifications. Be sure to choose a model with a measurement range that suits your surveying requirements. Keep in mind that longer-range instruments may come at a higher cost.
Yes, operating a robotic total station effectively requires training to understand its software, interface, and workflow. Many manufacturers offer training programs and resources to ensure users can make the most of the instrument’s capabilities. Proper training is crucial for accurate data collection and efficient surveying operations.
When purchasing a total station or robotic total station, it’s essential to thoroughly research your options, consider your specific surveying needs, and consult with experts or manufacturers to make an informed decision based on your budget and project requirements. here at Bench Mark we can offer training via Zoom to get you up and running.
Top-Tier Total Stations
The GeoMax Zoom40 is a top-of-the-line total station providing outstanding performance. This device combines industry-leading access EDM technology with quadruple axis compensation, making for long-distance reflectorless measurements and precise angle measurements with 3-inch accuracy. The Zoom40’s integrated laser delivers accurate and easy centering every time, and the bright beam is easily visible and eliminates the time-consuming procedures required with an optical plummet. The Zoom30 total station also delivers complete flexibility in communications with Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports, and RS232 compatibility. A completely new onboard suite of apps developed on a WindowsCE platform provides a solution to every measurement challenge. We also carry the GeoMax Zipp20, a revolutionary approach to the traditional total station in the USA. Incorporating a WindowsCE environment allows you to install survey data collection software, like the cutting-edge MicroSurvey FieldGenius directly onto the total station. Both the Zoom40 and the Zipp20 offer an enhanced user-experience through increased flexibility and affordability.
