Billed as the first electronic total station with cable-free, remote data collection, the GTS-230W Series uses Bluetooth wireless technology. It communicates directly with the company's FC-1000, which eliminates cable-caused downtime and allows the operator to work tether-free. Four models are available with 3, 5, 6 or 9 arc second accuracy. Each model includes a 10-hour battery, point-guide system for fast staking alignments, and a laser plummet for accurate set up. EDM range is 4,000 feet.
