The Leica TPS1200+ Total Station introduces precise automatic positioning along with several other accuracy improvements, according to the manufacturer.

Users no longer have to trade pointing accuracy to gain the convenience of robotic instruments. In combination with the new positioning camera, the PinPoint reflectorless EDM range and accuracy has increased two fold. It also has improved telescope features and a new high contrast color display.

Through continued research and development, Leica’s PinPoint reflectorless EDMs can now measure distances to more than 3,000 ft.

To improve instrument performance to reflectors, a new CMOS camera system has been developed. This camera now makes pointing accuracies of 1 second (ISO 17-123-3) possible. To improve the overall instrument distance accuracy, a new red-diode EDM has been designed to bring the base EDM accuracy to 1 mm. This type of quality has always been reserved for special application instruments, but now is available in all Leica 1200+ instruments, according to the manufacturer.

Increased Speed, Productivity

A new color display allows users to see and interact with their instruments in vivid detail. Drawing colors can now be imported directly to the instrument with data. The color map screen allows users to select items and use them for real working functions.

Built-in DXF file support makes sure that all drawing programs are supported both in the field and in the office.

Improved Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) sensors in the TPS1200+ follow the prism with speed and precision. If lock is interrupted, then the PowerSearch sensor quickly relocks onto the prism either automatically or with the push of a single button.

TPS 1200+ can accurately position itself in seconds.

Flexibility, Scalability

Leica Geosystems’ scalable system philosophy allows the Leica TPS1200+ to be fully GNSS compatible. With Leica’s SmartStation, SmartRover and SmartPole options, the user can customize their surveying equipment to their specific tasks, crew’s needs and budget.
