Sokkia’s reflectorless total station, the FX, includes on-board Magnet field application software, a telematics-based communications module called TSshield, and a long-range wireless communications system utilizing Bluetooth Class 1 technology.

The Bluetooth communications module, when connected with an external data collector, records data for codes and remote rod position. The remote operator can record data as-builts, eliminating many common errors. For stakeout, the operator can view directors required to find the stake point. Using the FX, a crew can function similarly to a robotic system, the company says, by placing the field controller at the prism so that the instrument operator only needs to aim the EDM.
