According to Leica Geosystems, the new Builder RM Power system, which is designed to facilitate layout and measurement on construction projects, incorporates an advanced multi-mode EDM, a mobile-phone-style keypad for data entry and new features in its Leica PowerSite Software. Simply aim and shoot to difficult targets such as wall corners or remote steel/concrete structures, says Leica, for fast, accurate layouts, measurements and as-built checks. New features of the Leica PowerSite Software, says the company, eases complex tasks — such as layout of curved structures, measuring to hidden points, and layout using intersection points or grid points. Graphical elements guide the user through all operations. The new system is available in four versions (Builder T, Builder R, Builder RM and Builder RP Power), and upgrading from one version to another is possible.
