The 'kit' form allows the surveyor to handle several surveying tasks from topos, stakeout and construction handheld applications.

SECO Manufacturing Company Incorporated brings another innovative product to surveyors--the Mini Prism Stakeout Prism Kit.

The SECO stakeout prism is now in "˜kit' form, which allows the surveyor to handle several surveying tasks from topos, stakeout, and construction handheld applications. The white site cones on the X- and Y-axis help improve instrument centering at the crosshairs for vertical and horizontal pointing. Moreover, the horizontal site cones double as tilting axis locks. The heavy-duty, white point can handle the abuse of being on the bottom of a pole, or used for handheld applications as well. An adjustable 40-minute circular vial, mounted at center-front provides easy viewing.

The white adapter makes the prism height 115 mm for use with most standard prism poles. This easy-to-use kit features four height configurations: 50 mm, 100 mm, 115 mm, and 150 mm, top or bottom of a pole, handheld, or tribrach mounted.

The 25 mm copper-coated prism is moisture-resistant and has good range: 3000-to-4000 feet is common with most instruments. The kit features 0 or -30 mm prism offset positions.

The kit weighs right around a pound and comes with a heavy-duty padded case.
