Total Stations & Theodolites
This collection is emptyView all products
Total stations are great for land surveying, civil engineering, construction stakeout, and even crime scene investigation, accident reconstruction, and forensic sciences. Total stations' advanced functions are controlled by an internal microprocessor, allowing you to perform a number of different survey tasks. This includes staking out points, coordinating measurements, making calculations, and storing and transferring large amounts of data.
Kinds of Total Stations
Choosing the right surveying total station for the job is important to be as productive as possible. Depending on the tasks, our total station equipment has choices ranging from accuracy, distance, screens and keypads, software, hardware, and security features. Some total stations come with laser pointers and optical or laser plummets. And all total station surveying equipment is built for the tough outdoor weather. You also have a choice of reflectorless total stations, which have a prism built-in or non-reflectorless that require a separate prism. With all the different total stations available, you can easily customize your surveying total station and features to best suit your needs.
Total Station Software
All surveying total stations can run various onboard data collection software for quick calculations of angles and distances onsite. Some are complete with full software onboard, with an abundance of features and choices for easy setup and taking shots.
Are you using a prism or do you want the convenience of working away from the total station? Total stations can be connected to data collectors with their own software, as well as transfer data to your office computer. Some total station surveying equipment even offers Bluetooth technology for faster communication and easier setup, along with even longer-range data collection. With adjustments knobs, locking mechanisms, and built-in functions, surveyors can configure the axis and leveling of the total station surveying equipment to reduce tilting errors. With a tribrach and tripod, you’re all set take angle and distance measurements in seconds!
If you want to measure precise vertical and horizontal angles, Theodolite is the right tool for the job! Digital theodolites use a rotating telescope that enables construction and surveying professionals to point the instrument and get high quality, magnified, long-distance images of the desired target. With user-friendly interfaces, even amateur surveyors can operate this device and minimize measurement errors in the field.
Choosing the Right Theodolite
Theodolites do more than just give you a line of sight. Electronic theodolites survey land and give precise and accurate angle measurements. They greatly minimizing errors by automatically performing mathematical calculations or converting vertical angle measurements to the percentage of grade. Theodolites are used in various construction and surveying applications (alignment and layout of highways, bridges, railways, buildings and other structures). Aside from regular digital theodolites, we also offer models with an integrated laser pointer and plummet (for greater pinpoint accuracy), tilt sensors (for reliable angle measurements), built-in serial ports (for two-way communication with your computer), and more.
Features of Digital Theodolites
Some theodolites are equipped with single or dual LCD screens (for viewing measurements) and large button keys (for instant access to common functions). Mounted on a tripod, theodolites for surveys can be used for laying out swimming pools, golf courses, and for planning floor layouts for shops and factories. Digital theodolites are also handy in topographic surveys to measure the progress of a construction project and to verify if it is conforming to zone regulations. There is no need to worry if you are often assigned in areas with extreme weather because survey theodolites are dustproof and water resistant.
