Sokkia Focuses on Reflectorless Tech with New Total Station
New CX Series total station designed for land surveying and construction layout
The new CX-60 total station from Sokkia features upgraded data transfer and storage options. It includes RED-tech reflectorless capabilities, and is designed to offer entry-level users with a fast and powerful EDM.
“The CX-60’s RED-tech technology reflectorless EDM offers a fast distance measurement of 0.9 seconds,” says Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “The instrument also offers a new USB option for quick and easy data transfer, along with 2 and 5 arc second accuracies, ideal for land surveying, topography, construction layout, foundations and exterior job sites, as well as as-built projects.”
RED-tech technology allows the total stations to operate reflectorless with an EDM of up to 350 meters or 4,000 meters with a prism.
The CX-60 comes with optional Bluetooth functionality, providing connectivity of up to 10 meters with controllers.
Additional features include 10,000 points of memory, a battery life of up to 15 hours, dual axis compensation, a waterproof design and a laser pointer.
