Trimble Introduced 5600 Total Station

Trimble introduced the 5600 Total Station with the industry’s first on-board, Windows CE-based Attachable Control Unit (ACU). Featuring color graphical capabilities never before offered in a total station, the new 5600 Total Station offers a wide variety of configurations: on-board, servo, Autolock or robotic, with ACU attached to the instrument or a robotic rover pole. The 5600 series features the industry’s longest measuring DR (reflectorless) total stations. In robotic or Autolock mode, the 5600 features active target technology for secure tracking of the remote target. The servo-driven total station provides a solid platform for automation, making upgrading to an Autolock or robotic configuration easy. (Trimble, Sunnyvale, Calif.)
