Topcon's 'multi-pulse technology'  boosts 'distance' for total station

GPT-3100W has narrowed relectorless beam
 
LIVERMORE, CA – A new, more accurate, longer distance, wireless total station, the Topcon GPT-3100W model, is now available for the surveying and civil engineering market.
 
Topcon Positioning Systems has developed the industry- leading "multi-pulse" electronic distance meter (EDM) that can take readings at 1,150 feet, further than any competing model.   Additionally, the GPT-3100W has a more narrow relectorless beam (.8 inches x .4 inches at 164 feet), and is designed for easier maintenance.
 
Additionally, the new model retains the dual-optical design for maximum measuring accuracy at all times. The laser is safe for all conditions, making it ideal for use in high-traffic and other heavily populated areas.
 
Peter Wallace, TPS director of survey, said, "Topcon's GPT-3100W uses a dual laser optics system, one narrow beam for non-prism functions, and a broader beam when using a prism. This stabilizes the beam over long distances providing accurate measurement, even in adverse atmospheric conditions such as heat shimmer.”
 
The new model replaces the GPT-3000W; the GPT-3000LW, which has a reflectorless EDM of 4,000 feet, will still be available.
