Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) announced it was making its MS Series of high-precision robotic total stations in North and South America.
Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. designs and manufactures precision positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets. TPS’ parent company, Topcon Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange – 7732), was founded in 1932.
The series recently introduced to the North and South American markets includes the MS05AX with the industry’s highest 0.5” angle accuracy and the MS1AX for 1” angle accuracy. The device is used for large-scale 3D measurement applications and also has a 2D monitoring function for real-time two-dimensional projects.
The series also may be used with a prism, reflective sheets or reflectorless, creating options and efficiencies for large monitoring fields, as well as a pre-scan search function used to ‘teach’ the instrument where the targets are in the monitoring field.
