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. Leica’s reflectorless electronic distance measuring (EDM) technology uses an extremely narrow visible laser beam to mark the target and measure the distance utilizing patented phase-shift techniques. The narrow laser beam provides a very small “footprint,” even at extended ranges, permitting precise distance measurements to sharp edges and corners. Leica Geosystems will offer a retrofit program to upgrade existing instruments with the reflectorless technology. (Leica Geosystems, Atlanta, Ga.)
