Leica RedLine’s family of tracking devices includes GNSS sensors for on-machine, vehicle, and pole rover applications, a ground-based robotic tracker and new software applications to speed construction measurement and layout tasks in every project phase. The RedLine sensors are designed for construction — light for measurement and layout, and tough enough for 3D machine control.

The RedLine controller and software applications complete the family for ease of use. Easy data flow from the office to the field and back means better results faster for big savings and maximum profits, according to the manufacturer.

All sensors can be used for multiple construction tasks at every phase including on-board machine control applications.

Leica PowerTracker

The Leica PowerTracker is a robotic tracking sensor for high-accuracy construction positioning needs. From stakeout to machine control to as-built verification, the Leica PowerTracker increases job site productivity and improves accuracy. With no keyboard and an intuitive user interface, all users will be up and running in no time. The Level & Go feature makes the Leica PowerTracker as easy to handle as a laser, according to the manufacturer.

Leica PowerAntenna

Whether a machine needs a GNSS position or heading, the site base station needs simplest “turn on and go” operation, or the supervisor needs to check grade with his 4-wheel drive and stake out a manhole in the next minute — the Leica PowerAntenna does it all. It uses the same components for on- and off-machine applications. It can be put on a pole for staking out, combined with the Leica PowerBox to boost productivity of an excavator with dual GNSS position, or used as a base station that site personnel can set up easily.

Leica PowerBox

The Leica PowerBox GNSS Receiver combines the advantages of a classic antenna/receiver with the benefits of a PowerAntenna for dual GNSS position and heading. The PowerBox is designed for the toughest machine control applications yet is still light and easy to use as a backpack rover system. PowerBox is ideal as a vehicle-mounted rover system or may be used as a full-feature reference base station for the entire site.

Leica SiteForeman by Carlson

Leica SiteForeman by Carlson is a versatile field software application designed to meet the on-site measurement requirements using handheld Windows enabled devices. Leica SiteForeman by Carlson allows all on-site staff access to digital design data in the field. Key features include measuring on-site position, consulting site design and setting-up total stations and GPS base stations.
