The GPT-9000A is designed to provide reflectorless measurement up to 2,000 meters (more than 6,500 feet) and can, according to the company, easily focus on small objects, such as power lines. The onboard computer uses a full-color touch screen display, and faster servo-motor technology improves productivity. The GTS-900A series reflector-only instruments are available with the same system components. Both new series use Topcon's FC-200 field controller, which employs a 520 MHz Intel X-Scale processor and Windows Mobile 4.2 operating system, and the company's RD Tracking System.
