Advanced integrated communications and a powerful EDM are staples of the new Sokkia iM-100 total station.
“The instrument is perfect for site layout or as-built survey with high-end performance in a manual package,” says Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products at Sokkia. “The iM-100 features a best-in-class accuracy up to 5,000 meters with a prism and up to 800 meters in reflectorless mode.”
The new total station features dual-axis compensation, designed to ensure stable measurements on rough terrain. “The compensator automatically corrects both horizontal and vertical angles, and allows for more accurate instrument setups and measurements,” Kerwin says.
The iM-100 features Bluetooth technology with no external antenna necessary for connectivity with the controller. Additional features include 50,000 points of internal memory and up to 32GB USB flash drive support, as well as up to 28 hours of battery life and IP66 certification.
