Sokkia is expanding its CX total station series with two new total stations available in the Americas and Europe. Both feature enhanced reflectorless operation: The new CX-50 is designed to provide an entry-level option with a fast and powerful EDM; the CX-100LN is built to offer a long-range reflectorless EDM.
“Surveyors have long enjoyed the easy-to-use, high-precision, rugged and reliable CX series of total stations,” says Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products. “The CX-50 incorporates all those time-honored Sokkia expectations, along with a reflectorless EDM of up to 350 meters, and 4,000 meters with the use of a prism. Additionally, the CX-100LN features a 2,000-meters non-prism pulse EDM that can measure further than non-prism instruments in this class.”
The Sokkia algorithm lessens the noise associated with non-prism measurements, which leads to an more accurate results to most surfaces over longer distances.
The CX-50 offers 2- and 5-arc second accuracies, a battery life of up to 15 hours, dual axis compensation, a waterproof design and a laser pointer. The CX-100LN provides 2- and 5-arc second accuracies, a 36-hour battery life, dual axis compensation, a laser pointer and Bluetooth connectivity.
“The CX-100LN is perfect for customers typically that need long-range measurements, such as those in the utility and mining industries,” Kerwin says.
