Topcon’s new robotic total station features an independently operating 3D laser scanner.

Topcon’s latest total station features an integrated terrestrial laser scanner that can provide quick 3D scans of a site, according to Australian distributors Position Partners.

“There are many types of survey jobs where a combination of both technologies would be an advantage,” said Paul Malatzky, scanning market development manager for Position Partners.

A distinguishing feature of the GTL-1000 is the independent operation of the total station and its laser scanner, which does not rely on the station’s electronic distance measurement.

A total station’s EDM, no matter how sophisticated, cannot perform anywhere near the speed of most 3D laser scanners on the market today,” Mr. Malatzky said.

Position Partners suggest that ideal use cases for the new unit include forensic surveys such as crash scene investigations, BIM surveys, feature and detail surveys for road and infrastructure, and underground surveys.

“Although limited by range on large road scans compared with high specification 3D laser scanning solutions, the Topcon GTL-1000 provides excellent supplication to total station measurements,” Mr Malatzky said.
