What is Total Station? Electronic Total Station instrument used in surveying for measuring distances, angles (horizontal and vertical), applies Loss topografichsekoy shooting area to calculate the heights of points areas and coordinate the design points. Total stations allow you to perform a wide range of problems – the calculation of areas, the calculation serif tacheometry and stakeout, measuring the baseline and definition reach distances and heights. Total stations are reflective (prism) and reflectionless. Depends on this range scales. Electronic Total Station – required geodetic instruments, which have many useful features – such as electronic tracking system for the verticality of the instrument, the accounting system of collimation and refraction, which makes it possible to work with the product only a single round, servo motors and the ability to automatically capture and track a reflector (for more advanced models). There are also complete with a tachymeter rangefinders – it suggests that made measurements focused only on one subject on which you are currently exposed to the telescope unit.
The electronic instrument is a distance determined by the transit time of the laser beam to the reflecting device and back to the same as it is increased according to the phase shift. The length measurement is dependent on the characteristics of a particular model of electronic total station, also sometimes from a variety of external parameters: pressure, humidity, temperature, and the like. Spectrum measurement range is subject to addition of an electronic total station mode of operation: with or without reflection reflection. During an intervention mode with a reflector (Prism) – up to five kilometers, in addition to the regime without reflection – up to several hundred meters. In those models, total station instruments that have a reflection-free system can measure distances up to almost any subject. Modern total stations have a high degree of functionality and technical capabilities, compact, easy to use, measurement accuracy and vysochkoy resistant to weather conditions that will allow you to perform survey operations at any time. Total Stations come with a warranty. Now there is a wide range of manufacturers of electronic total stations and various surveying instruments (theodolites, controllers, Levels)
