SPECTRA Precision, represented by Trimble Australia , has introduced a new cost-effective suite of surveying products to address the conventional survey market.
The new line of products are intended to bring more affordable, professional-grade survey instruments to a broader range of surveyors worldwide. The survey product line will include Global Positioning Systems (GPS), optical total stations and data collection hardware, as well as field and office software.
The Spectra Precision survey brand includes two unique product lines developed for the everyday surveyor - the Spectra Precision Focus family of optical total stations that feature exceptional speed, accuracy and reliability and the Epoch family of GPS systems that are user-friendly and rugged.
Initial products available from the Spectra Precision survey portfolio include the Focus 10 Total Station and the Epoch 10 L1 GPS System.
The advanced technology of the Focus 10 Total Station delivers improved speed, convenience and affordability to mechanical total station users. It is a servomotor-driven, reflectorless total station that allows surveyors to increase staking speed and measure objects with or without a prism.
The system comes standard with long-range, reflectorless technology, allowing surveyors to measure remote objects without a prism. The accuracy of the Focus 10 assures the integrity of measurements taken to targets.
By including sensor technology, the Focus 10 allows the operator to be confident the signal is coming back from the reflector - not other reflective objects.
The Epoch 10 system integrates a survey-grade L1 GPS receiver with the Spectra Precision Recon Data Collector, a proven, ultra-rugged product designed especially for tough surveying conditions.
The compact and lightweight Epoch 10 system handles drops, extreme temperatures, dirt, and water, making it one of the toughest L1 GPS solutions available. It also spares the surveyor the expense of a separate GPS receiver and data collector.
The Epoch 10 GPS system includes highly accurate GPS technology for control work and other precision survey applications. It offers the performance and reliability of an advanced system, while remaining an extremely cost-effective investment.
The Focus 10 Total Station and Epoch 10 L1 GPS system are expected to be available in October 2005.
