100,000th Total Station

SOUTH Survey celebrates reaching the milestone of 100,000 units rolling out of the factury. This will be celebrated in SOUTH's Beijing factory (China). This number is significant as according to SOUTH, it is bigger than the total volume of imported total-stations since 1970 and doubles the total volume of all other China-made total-stations ever. China's first total-station, the NTS-202 was released in 1995 for the Chinese market, followed in 2002 by the NTS-322 total-station which was equivalent to the international level. The year 2004 was important as SOUTH reached the first place in the Chinese market, surpassing imported brands and... (read more)

New Total Station Topcon

Topcon Positioning Systems (CA, USA) has announced its new, more accurate, longer distance, wireless total station, the Topcon GPT-3100W model.   This "multi-pulse" electronic distance meter (EDM) can take readings at 1,150 feet. Additionally, the GPT-3100W has a more narrow relectorless beam (.8 inches x .4 inches at 164 feet), and is designed for easier maintenance. The new model retains the dual-optical design for maximum measuring accuracy at all times. The laser is safe for all conditions, making it ideal for use in high-traffic and other heavily populated areas.   The new model replaces the GPT-3000W; the GPT-3000LW, which has... (read more)
