PES offer Total Station hire which have advantages over laser trackers in some environments.
The new Leica TDRA6000 is the most accurate total station ever designed for industrial use. This new Leica Geosystems laser station has the ability to automatically target both CCR and tape targets and can even measure without targets, maintaining a typical reflectorless accuracy of 1 mm. Optimized for use within 300 meters.
An all new Leica Geosystems proprietary direct drive technology has been designed from the ground up for this new sensor. Based on Piezo technology, these new direct drives enable high speed motorization and acceleration, at up to 4x the previous generation, but still allow sub micron level fine positioning.
Combined with the right software package like DCP05 or SpatialAnalyzer (both supplied by PES), the Leica TDRA6000 is a top level solution for industrial metrology.
