Sokkia Redefines ‘Robotics’ with SX Total Station Series Print E-mail
Written by Sokkia Corporation   
Monday, 10 September 2012

Olathe, Kan.  – September 10, 2012 – Sokkia Corporation announces a redefinition of 'robotics’ with its SX series of total stations, a compact, lightweight system containing the most modern technology available in the marketplace today.
The SX’s high-accuracy robotic technology includes an advanced angle measurement system, RED-tech technology, reflectorless EDM, Bluetooth® Class 1 long-range data communication, and an extremely accurate auto-tracking system with the RC-PR5 remote control system.
Combining these features with MAGNET™ Field application software and TSshield™, a telematics-based communications module with both cellular technology and GPS for positioning, the SX offers the industry’s most advanced laser and image processing technologies that provide exemplary performance on any job site. From stakeout or boundary work, to landscape projects or forensics, or any project requiring precise 3D positioning, the SX series “provides the best solutions for practically any work requiring fast and accurate measurement,” according to Brice Walker, vice president of sales for the Survey Business Unit.
In addition to being one of the most compact robotic systems available, the SX is cable-free and simple to learn and operate. The fully integrated unit delivers a 1,000-foot working radius through Bluetooth technology. (All SX data is instantly available at the controller.)
Walker said, “With the SX, reflectorless operation is available up to 3,280 feet (1,000m), and fast distance measurement can be accomplished with pinpoint precision is less than a second regardless of object.”
The SX features Sokkia’s original absolute encoders that provide long-term reliability in the most adverse job site conditions. Its dual-axis compensator ensures stable measurements even when set up on uneven terrain.
Other features of the SX series include:
• IP65 dustproof and waterproof rating;
• USB Type A and mini B ports, plus serial port;
• 25-key pad control panel with LCD touch screen;
• Standard temperature range from -20 to +50 degrees Centigrade;
• Tough metal chassis.
More information on the SX is available at http://www.sokkia.com/Products/Detail/SX.aspx.
