Topcon Positioning Group announces has released MAGNET Construct 2.0. The next-generation app is built to drive a wide variety of Topcon total stations from a user’s smartphone or tablet. The first version of the app was purpose-built to drive the LN-100 Layout Navigator system alone. 

“This ‘out of the box productivity’ is now available for most Topcon instruments,” says David Ahl, director of software product management. “Whether you prefer Android devices or the latest Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch hardware, the MAGNET Construct 2.0 app offers intuitive options to wirelessly connect to and drive a total station for fast measurements as well as graphical guidance for your data.”

MAGNET Construct also offers secure connectivity to MAGNET Enterprise Web services for real-time data exchange from active project sites to and from the office. The app is available on both the Apple App Store as well as Google Play.

“It’s an example of our focus to provide more options that cater to the preferences of end users,” Ahl says. “This cross-platform compatibility of the MAGNET Construct 2.0 app makes precise measurement solutions for diverse applications even more accessible.”
