Topcon has introduced the world’s first electronic total station that features cable-free, remote data collection. Utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology, the new GTS-230W series communicates directly with the Topcon FC-1000, eliminating cable-caused downtime and allowing the instrument man to work tether-free.
Four models are available featuring 3, 5, 6 or 9 arc second accuracy. Onboard data collection is enhanced by display screen 50 percent larger than its predecessor and the addition of function keys. Each model includes a long-life (10 hour) NiMH battery operation, “point guide” system for fast staking alignment, and a laser plummet for accurate set up. Three models feature an EDM range of 4,000 feet (2,700 feet on 9 second model).
