Leica calls its TS60 the ‘most accurate’ total station

Leica Geosystems launches its newest TS60 robotic total station with a bold claim.

The firm holds that the new Nova TS60’s vital specs — offering angular accuracy of 0.5″ with a distance accuracy of 0.6mm + 1ppm — support its statement.

“We designed the TS60 for highly demanding surveying projects, requiring the world’s highest levels of accuracy and to reliably operate even in the harshest conditions” said Hans-Martin Zogg, business director at Leica Geosystems.

“We integrated new capabilities to help surveyors save time and increase productivity with the fastest re-lock in case of interrupted line of sight – be it rain, fog, dust, sun, heat shimmer or reflections – and automatically measure instrument height.”

This last feature — the imaginatively titled AutoHeight — does sound handy, along with the new station’s claimed ability to lock onto moving prisms via its new DynamicLock function.

The new Nova TS60 also offers the ability to take a photograph of the surrounding area that includes previously collected points, and data can be analysed and processed on board with Leica’s Captivate software.
