(Norcross, Ga., 4 March, 2008) -- Leica RedLine is the world’s most versatile construction site positioning range, providing cost-saving products and solutions for every phase of a project from design to as-built.  This new family of tracking devices includes GNSS sensors for on-machine, vehicle, and pole rover applications, a ground-based robotic tracker and new software applications to speed construction measurement and layout tasks in every project phase. The rugged RedLine sensors are designed for construction – light for measurement and layout, and tough enough for 3D machine control.  The RedLine controller and software applications complete the family for industry-leading ease of use. Easy data flow from the office to the field and back means better results faster for big savings and maximum profits. Easy to use with a robust and modular design, all sensors can be used for multiple construction tasks at every phase including on-board machine control applications.
 
Leica PowerTracker – Survey precision with construction speed!
The Leica PowerTracker is a highly accurate robotic tracking sensor, the perfect tool for high-accuracy construction positioning needs. From stakeout to machine control to as-built verification, the Leica PowerTracker is the ideal sensor for the construction site, increasing jobsite productivity and improving accuracy. With no keyboard and an extremely intuitive user interface, all users will be up and running in no time. The Level & Go feature makes the Leica PowerTracker as easy to handle as a laser.
  
Leica PowerAntenna: Light and rugged, ready for anything on the site
Whether a machine needs a GNSS position or heading, the site base station needs simplest “turn on & go” operation, or the supervisor needs to check grade with his 4-wheel drive and stake out a manhole in the next minute – the Leica PowerAntenna does it all. It is the world’s first system that uses the same components for on- and off-machine applications. It can be put on a pole for staking out, combined with the Leica PowerBox to boost productivity of an excavator with dual GNSS position, or used as a base station that site personnel can set up easily.
  
Leica PowerBox: Machine control, backpack rover, or base station – PowerBox does it all!
The Leica PowerBox GNSS Receiver enters a new dimension in flexibility and versatility for every construction site. The Leica PowerBox is the world’s first system that combines the advantages of a classic antenna / receiver with the benefits of a PowerAntenna for dual GNSS position and heading. The PowerBox is designed for the toughest machine control applications yet is still light and easy to use as a backpack rover system.  PowerBox is ideal as a vehicle-mounted rover system or may be used as a full-feature reference base station for the entire site.
