DMT launches surveying instrument with fully automatic precision gyroscope

Supplier News

DMT is launching the GYROMAT 5000, a fully automatic precision gyroscope at the upcoming Intergeo show.

The GYROMAT 5000 addresses the limitations of modern surveying equipment that often relies on data from satellite-based GNSS systems. In the absence of satellite reception, especially while using the instrument underground, in tunnels or in large-scale constructions, it would be difficult for the user to get the highest level of precision required for the job at hand.

The GYROMAT 5000 precision gyroscopes represent the current state-of-the-art in universal tools for geodetic applications or control tasks.

The GYROMAT 5000 gyroscopes are part of DMT’s range of high accuracy surveying instruments. To be showcased at the upcoming Intergeo, the international geodesy trade fair, the GYROMAT 5000 allows accurate measurement of direction, irrespective of the Earth's magnetic field. A neutral, rapidly rotating gyroscope is suspended inside the instrument, which, due to the combined forces of the gyro rotation, gravitational pull and the Earth's rotation, oscillates around geodetic north. The integrated scanning system then determines the direction of true north fully automatically and with ultra-precision, achieving an accuracy of 0.8 mgon.

Dr Jörg Niese, Head of Development for geodetic measuring systems explains that the new gyroscope is the result of more than 60 years of experience in the development and production of gyro measuring devices at DMT. He adds that the new gyroscope is far superior to the predecessor model in terms of technical specifications, operation and precision measurement. 

Equipped with advanced monitoring capabilities and a new, more ergonomic design, the GYROMAT 5000 allows menu-driven operation via a built-in display/ input unit. The gyroscope functions fully automatically without requiring any manual pre-alignment.

The GYROMAT 5000 is also more customer-friendly as the device is now available with a battery that can be replaced on site.
