Topcon Introduces QS Robotic Total Station Series Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Systems   
Monday, 08 November 2010

Livermore, Calif. – November 8, 2010 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduces its new generation of robotic total stations, the QS Series (Quick Station).

The QS Series – featuring the X-TRAC 8 prism tracking technology – is designed to “provide unprecedented power and speed to dramatically enhance productivity and save time and money on every job,” said Denny Welch, senior vice president of the TPS survey business unit.

Welch said, “The QS Series can be summed up in four words: Faster. Smarter. Farther. Stronger.

“With the new X-TRAC 8 technology, strong tracking and quick prism re-acquisition in any work site condition is assured. The QS represents around-the-corner design and technology that provides increased performance in even the most obstructed sites. Topcon continues to be an industry leader with long-range power (2000m / 6500 feet reflectorless EDM technology). The QS is built to withstand the most adverse working conditions and the toughest job site locations,” Welch said.

The X-TRAC 8 technology incorporated in both the QS instrument and RC-4 QuickLock rover device “dramatically increases power for prism tracking. Employing entirely new optics, laser system, and further advanced algorithms, X-TRAC 8 provides the QS instruments with an unsurpassed ability to keep tracking a moving prism no matter the job site obstacles,” he said.

The new RC-4, a compact QuickLock remote system that integrates an array of advanced technologies that “dramatically increases productivity on all survey projects” is designed for use with the QS, Welch said. “The RC-4 uses dual lasers, a built-in spread spectrum radio and Topcon’s QuickLock technology to create on-the-job efficiencies from stakeout to topo and from construction layout to as-built surveys.

“These core technologies make the QS not only the most dependable tool for surveying and stakeout,” he said, “but also has the industry’s most advanced sensor for highly productive, precision machine control systems.”

The RC-4 remote has dual laser emitters, which significantly expand remote control coverage to speed up prism search and lock operations. A built-in spread spectrum radio provides a convenient data link between the QS and the field controller, eliminating the need for an external radio system or integrated controller system.

Topcon has further enhanced the EDM processing engine in the QS that dramatically reduces measurement time for the hard-to-measure objects such as wet road surfaces or manholes, darkest colored slopes or rocks. The QS system is complete with the addition of Topcon Tools and TopSURV software.

In combination with the 2,000m (6,500 ft.) super-long-range non-prism capability, the QS provides ultimate power in distance measurements to ensure maximum productivity.

Completely cable-free, the QS comes one-, three- and five-second accuracy options, and has a full-color, graphical Windows® CED interface.
