Topcon’s new Measuring Stations MS05AX and MS1AX feature a number of technological and functional enhancements that provide higher accuracy, higher speed, and higher work efficiency in structural monitoring and large-scale 3D measurement applications.
For the most demanding projects that require the greatest accuracy the MS05 will provide 1/2 arc second accurracy. Perfect for Monitoring projects or high end engineering jobs.
The non-prism measurement range of the MS1AX model is doubled to 400m with Kodak white side (90% reflective).
The auto collimation accuracy with the standard prism is increased to 1", and the accuracy with a relective sheet is improved 1mm @ 50 meters. Reliable measurements to the predetermined prisms in periodic monitoring apllications. Increased Rotation Speed incorporating the new servo-motors and driving mechanism, the maximum rotation speed is increased by 33 percent to 60°/s. The increased rotation speed reduces the total measurement time, especially in large-scale monitoring applications.
This function dramatically improves the initial setup efficiency for structural monitoring applications. The MS-AX models, in combination with the external control system, automatically search the predetermined area to quickly locate the approximate positions of reflectors. This function works even in low light or dark conditions where the reflectors cannot be recognized by the human eye.
The approximate reflector positions obtained with this function greatly increase efficiency in reflector search for precise collimation.
This function was specifically developed to reduce measurement time for real-time two-dimensional monitoring applications. The MS-AX models can be operated by the external control system to quickly obtain vertical and horizontal angles, enabling faster recognition of 2D (vertical and horizontal) movements.
Employing advanced image processing technology, the MS-AX measures the vertical and horizontal angles to the reflectors located within the telescope’s field of view. This function requires neither precise collimation to the reflector nor distance measurement, significantly increasing measurement speed. Ideal for subsidence, displacement or deformation monitoring where vertical or horizontal movements are critical.
