SOKKIA Releases the NET05X 3D Station

July 31, 2009
SOKKIA’s new NET05X manual 3D station provides 0.5” angle accuracy and submillimeter precision EDM.



SOKKIA introduces the NET05X – a new manual 3D Station that provides unparalleled precision in broad range of applications such as surveying, engineering, construction and industrial three-dimensional measurement.

0.5” Angle Accuracy
The combination of market-proven absolute rotary encoders and advanced Independent Angle Calibration System (IACS) provides the industry’s highest 0.5” angle accuracy.

Submillimeter EDM
SOKKIA’s cutting-edge distance measurement technology ensures unmatched comprehensive performance. With reflective sheet targets, NET05X provides submillimeter 0.5mm+1ppm accuracy within the range of 200m (650ft.). NET05X measures standard prisms with 0.8mm+1ppm precision up to 3,500m (11,480ft.), providing the industry’s highest accuracy at over 1,000m (3,200ft.). Reflectorless measurement can be performed with 1mm+1ppm precision to 100m (320ft.) range. Measurement time is as fast as 2.4 seconds in fine mode.

Superior Telescope
Besides the 2.5” high resolving power, the superior telescope provides unmatched brightness and sharpness.

Perfectly Aligned Laser Pointer
The red laser pointer utilizes the EDM measuring beam, and is therefore perfectly aligned with the telescope axis and ideal for precise setting out and alignment tasks indoor or underground conditions.

Target Illumination
Prisms or sheet targets can be easily located in dim lighting conditions using the high-intensity white LED built into the telescope.

Advanced User-Interface
NET05X incorporates Windows CE operating system with highly visible touch screen display panels. The fully illuminated keyboard allows easy operation in tunnels, at night, and in low lighting conditions.

IP65 Environmental Protection
IP65 dust- and water-resistant body, the highest rate among the Windows incorporated total stations, stands up under dusty or wet conditions. A weatherproof multi-port maintains IP65 protection even with a data cable or an external battery connected.

Bluetooth Wireless Communication
Built-in Class 1 Bluetooth modem allows wireless communication with an external controller or PC to a range of 200m (650ft.).

Wide Variety of Reflectors
SOKKIA’s full line of innovative reflectors maximizes measurement accuracy and efficiency.
