Leica Geosystems announces its new Manual Total Station, the Leica Viva TS11. This modern total station provides imaging functionality and features the easy-to-use Leica SmartWorx Viva onboard software.
The Leica Viva TS11 adds a high-resolution camera to further enhance total station productivity. Traditional operation is significantly improved by imaging features through Image Assisted Surveying and Documentation.
With the new Image Capture functionality users can take high-resolution images of the surveying scene or even capture any screen shown on the display at the push of a button. The exact photo documentation of site conditions helps to further optimize productivity and to minimize paper field-notes and avoid costly re-visits.
Any new or captured image can be enhanced through sketching with any color, line style and width to uniquely transfer valuable information. Users will benefit from never again loosing their field-notes or struggling with drawing on wet paper.
After capturing and sketching, the annotated images can be linked to any object of interest (point, line, area) or simply stored with a time stamp. Users can now exactly assign their images and archive them together with measurement data.
The Leica Viva TS11 incorporates the Leica SmartWorx Viva onboard software bringing ease-of-use to a new level. Leica SmartWorx Viva provides a wide range of applications.
The Leica Viva TS11 models offer angle measurements of 1”, 2”, 3”, and 5” with quadruple axis compensation. In prism mode a distance of 3’500m is achieved with an accuracy of 1mm+1.5ppm on a single prism in standard measuring mode. On all surfaces users can measure up to 1’000 m and more with an accuracy of 2mm + 2ppm.
Users can also add GNSS functionality to the Leica Viva TS11 total station to further improve productivity. The Viva TS11 can be used as a Leica SmartStation for TPS setup without the need of control points, traverses, and resections.
