The Topcon DS-200i direct aiming imaging station now has advanced connectivity options. The DS-200i, now with Wi-Fi access, provides real-time, touchscreen video and photo imaging to capture measured positions.

“The ultra-wide 5 megapixel on-board camera provides photo documentation in the field and can now transmit live video using either LongLink or high-speed WLAN as an access point, which allows the FC-5000 or Windows 10 tablets to easily connect,” says Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. 

“The addition of Wi-Fi connectivity offers convenience to the powerful video capabilities of the DS-200i. The system allows for non-prism measurements to be aimed and measured to remote objects — saving time without having to return to the tripod,” he says. “The live video allows a remote user to know exactly what is being measured.”

Additional standard features include Hybrid Positioning functionality, Xpointing technology for quick and reliable prism acquisition, TSshield telematics security and maintenance technology, and a rating of IP65 for water-resistant construction.
