Nikon Instruments Inc. Introduced the DTM-502 Series

Nikon Instruments Inc. has introduced the DTM-502 Series. The newly designed DTM-552, DTM-532 and DTM-522 replace the current DTM-501 Series. The DTM-502 Series allows for a faster, more accurate data collection process and boasts a new, more user-friendly display system; an enhanced onboard software system; a 10,000-point onboard storage capacity (accommodating up to 32 separate jobs); and a new keyboard design. The DTM-502 Series provides an initial distance measurement of only one second with 0.5 second updates, with ± (2 +2 ppm X D) mm accuracy. The DTM-502 Series Total Station boasts a light weight of 5.5 kg (including battery); a BC-80 clip-on battery providing approximately 10.5 hours of continuous distance/angle measurement; an LLV (Low Light Visible) green color, which increases on-site safety and identification of the instrument; and a compact, high-quality telescope incorporating a powerful and stable EDM.
