Featuring “XPointing” technology, Topcon’s new DS-200 is the latest addition to the company’s DS line of total stations for the North American market. XPointing technology allows the DS-200 to lock on to prisms quickly, says the company, even in dim or dark conditions. The DS-200 can be configured for interaction with Topcon’s RC5 remote system, which, says Topcon, allows users up to 1000 feet away to perform a QuickLock with a push of a button. TDS-200 offers the use of both GNSS positioning and optical positioning technology, and the system can become fully robotic with Hybrid Positioning technology, which can allow shots to be measured with a GNSS receiver when the line-of-sight is blocked.
