The Northwest Instrument NTS02S Reflectorless Total Station is the smart, state of the art, 2” device. Its compact but rugged design allows it to be used by surveyors and engineers in a huge range of working environments. With a built-in EDM laser and an enhanced absolute encoder, it's not only extremely durable but a very accurate device too. The NTS02S uses the enhanced absolute encoder to detect an absolute position, as soon as the device is turned on. This in turn allows the land surveyors to work continuously, without returning to the start point.
The main attraction to this surveying device is its great accuracy and reflectorless capability. With 2-second accuracy and 30x magnification, this survey tool allows you to measure slope distances at up to 984 feet. The NTS02S's single prism means you also have the option to extend your devices measuring capability, from 984 feet up to a huge 6,500 feet. The rechargeable Li-Ion battery provides up to 24 hours of measuring angles only, but it also allows up to 9 hours of multifuntioning, measuring both distance and angles.
The reflectorless total station is very user friendly, using an alphanumeric keyboard and soft keys you can enter data quickly. It also has illuminated LCD screens on both sides of the total station, meaning you can review the results received from many angles. Though the NTS02S is built with user friendly functions, it also has a surprising environmental rating of IP-55. This allows the device to be exposed to dust and water jets from all angles.
