Long-range reflectorless measuring technology will be offered as a standard feature on the full line of TPS700 and TPS1100 series surveying total stations.

Leica Geosystems will offer long-range reflectorless measuring technology as a standard feature on its full line of TPS700 and TPS1100 series surveying total stations. Construction grade total stations will continue to be available with standard reflectorless capability.

Leica’s unique reflectorless electronic distance measuring (EDM) technology uses an extremely narrow visible laser beam to mark the target precisely and measure the distance utilizing patented phase-shift techniques. The narrow laser beam provides a very small “footprint,” even at extended ranges, permitting very precise distance measurements to sharp edges and corners.

Leica Geosystems will offer a retrofit program to upgrade existing instruments with the reflectorless technology, according to Baertlein, who also noted that non-reflectorless models will continue to be available on special order.
