Total Stations have become the workhorse and main instrument for surveyors. They provide a suite of functionality to help the user stay fast and efficient.
Most total stations have an electronic distance measuring device (EDM), a digital theodolite and lots of computing horsepower and memory. This powerful grouping of features gives surveyors the ability to measure vertical and horizontal angles, slope distances and more.
Today we're taking a look at some of the benefits of using Topcon Total Stations on your next job.

Top 3 Tips for Using Any Total Station
Always ensure that a total station’s tripod is on the most stable footing possible. This helps prevent movement, avoid accidents, and get the most accurate measurements.
Proper battery care is important. Always remove the battery when the station is not in use. Store it in a dry place, fully discharged. This protects the station and maximizes battery life.
Never carry a tripod with a total station attached. Always remove the total station from the tripod when moving it.
While total stations can be a significant expense, they deliver on the investment. They produce more accurate and detailed measurements and maps than any other instruments.
