Topcon has announced its latest addition to the GM line of manual total stations, the GM-50, which they say has been designed to provide fast and accurate measurements in a cost-efficient package.

“In a compact and sleek design, the GM-50 offers high-end performance and exceptional functionality for jobs such as site layout or as-built survey,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products.

Topcon claims the GM-50 can offer a rapid distance measurement of 0.9 seconds, regardless of the target. “The iM-50 EDM features a prism range of up to 4,000 m and up to 500 m in reflectorless mode with an incredible 1.5 mm/2 ppm accuracy for accurate measurements in most any entry-level survey or layout application,” said Kerwin.

“GM series total stations are thoroughly inspected with dust-proof and water-proof test chambers. In addition, various tests against vibration, drop, temperature, and humidity were successfully passed to achieve the best environmental specifications.”

The newest addition to the GM line carries an IP66 certification, Bluetooth connectivity with the controller, as well as 50,000 points of internal memory, or up to 32GB USB flash drive external support.
