Topcon GPT8203M Total Station Offers Automated Stakeout

Wed July 26, 2006 - National Edition

The GPT-8203M is a new addition to Topcon’s 8200 Series of long-range reflectorless total stations. This precision instrument is specially designed to expedite layout of formwork, structural components, anchor bolts, as well as all other construction elements that require accurate positioning.

Onboard software and a servo-drive work together to automate point stakeout. With the GPT-8203M, it is not necessary to be an experienced surveyor to put plans on the ground.

All GPT-8200 models feature Topcon’s advanced EDM, enabling reflectorless measurements up to 3,937 ft. (1,200 m). With a standard prism, the measurement range is extended to 22,966 ft. (7,000 m). The GPT-8203M can be upgraded to a full robotic unit.
