Leica Next Generation SP Technology

Next generation SP technology not only enhances flexibility and productivity, but also now supports machine control with total stations and increases grading speed on jobs where GPS is not usable.

Next generation SP technology not only enhances flexibility and productivity, but also now supports machine control with total stations and increases grading speed in environments where GPS is not usable. When working in remote areas, an operator can swap the GPS sensors with a total station and can keep working with his 3D machine control system while experiencing the same SP performance and speeds as with GPS. The technology provides improved hydraulic control that allows faster grading with smoothness and precision at higher speeds.
