Sokkia releases new total stations

By on 30 November, 2010


Sokkia has released four new SRX total stations with a new auto-tracking system that includes new motors and driving mechanism, new optics and laser system.

The company says the SRX series also has a refined tracking algorithm that enhances the ability to predict future prism positions, enabling more stable tracking and faster prism reacquisition.

In field tests, the SRX is said to have proved robust, working in environments with intensive reflections from behind a prism, or with repetitive interruptions in the line-of-sight.

The instrument’s new telescope is optimised for both prism tracking and distance measurements, while maintaining 2.5 seconds resolving power.

The RED-tech 800 EDM provides increased measurement range of 800 metres without a reflector, and up to 1,000 m under specific conditions.

Measurement accuracy is increased to 1.5 mm + 2ppm, using Sokkia’s 360° prism or standard prism. Reflectorless measurement accuracy is also enhanced to 2 mm + 2ppm.

The RED-tech 800 employs ultra-high modulation frequencies of up to 468.75MHz for measurement signals.

This extremely short signal wavelength, combined with enhanced digital processing technology, has increased both the measurement range and precision.

The SRX is equipped with a 3.7-inch LCD touch-screen display. Using a built-in light sensor, the LCD brightness is automatically adjusted to the optimum level.

Four models are available with different angle accuracy grades: SRX1X (1”), SRX2X (2”), SRX3X (3”) and SRX5X (5”).
