Topcon Introduced the DT-200 Series



Topcon introduced a new line-up of improved theodolites, the DT-200 series, which replaces the DT-100 series. The DT-200 series integrates the same high-quality advanced absolute circle reading technology found in Topcon's total station products, eliminating the need for a zero setting operation. With an environmental rating of IP66, the DT-200 weathers any wet or dust conditions in the field. It also features an enhanced operating time of up to 170 hours using four AA alkaline batteries. An optional built-in visible laser is available in all models. This allows the user to turn any angle desired and switch the laser on to productively control any alignment task. Three models with 5, 7 or 9 arc second angle accuracy are available. (Topcon, Pleasanton, Calif.)
