Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has released two new series of reflectorless total stations – the GPT-3200NW and GPT-3200N. 



Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has released two new series of reflectorless total stations – the GPT-3200NW and GPT-3200N.

The GPT-3200NW series offers an array of new features that includes enhanced non-prism measurement performance, improved user interface, and increased onboard data collection capability.  The series includes two, three, five and seven arc-second models:  GPT-3202NW, GPT3203NW, GPT-3205NW and GPT-3207NW.

Denny Welch, senior vice president of the TPS Survey Business Unit, said, “Improvements have been made while maintaining field-proven durability and portability for the user.  The industry-leading technologies of the new series will maximize work efficiency and maximize safety with a Class I/1M safe laser for distance measurement that allows safe use even in areas with heavy traffic.”

The new GPT-3200NW series has an extended non-prism range with a refinement of the pulse EDM with measuring distances up to 1,310 feet (400m) range without a reflector. 

The standard onboard software, TopField and Road, increases efficiency in topographical data collection, construction layout, as well as road stakeout tasks.  The newly added 24-key alphanumeric keyboard allows for quick input of point numbers, codes, attributes and other necessary data. 

In addition to the extended range, other standard features include:
  • Class I/1M Safe Pulse Laser EDM

  • Laser Pointer for NP Measurement and Layout

  • 24-key Alphanumeric Keyboard

  • TopField and Road Onboard Software

  • Point Guide for Stakeout/Layout

  • Laser Plummet for Quick Setup (GPT-3200N series has an optical plummet)

  • Bluetooth® Wireless Connectivity (GPT-3200NW models only)

  • IP66 Dust and Water Protection
The GPT-3200N series has reflectorless distance measurement up to 1310 feet (400m) and TopField software included as standard.  The series includes the GPT-3205N and GPT-3207N and is available only in Central and South American markets.
