CTS-3000 series: Onboard software simplifies staking

Livermore, CA -

A new total station series specifically designed for construction layout and other job site positioning tasks has been announced by Topcon Positioning Systems. The CTS-3000 series features onboard software that simplifies staking. An extended keyboard enables easy operation and data input. The system software can also be operated with a hand-held data collector, like Topcon's FC-100. Reflectorless measurement capabilities up to 250m (820 ft.) and a prism type range of 3,000m (9842 ft.) to a single standard size prism provide the range needed to cover most job sites.

Formal surveying experience is not needed to use the CTS-3000 series instruments on the job site. This unit is designed to carry grades, set or maintain control, or perform layout quickly and easily.

CTS-3000 series instruments are built with rugged, weatherproof housings to protect internal components under typical job conditions and use.

Topcon Positioning Systems, a developer and manufacturer of positioning equipment, offers the world's leading selection of innovative precision GPS, laser, optical surveying, and machine control, products, software, and applications.
