Topcon has developed the ultimate one person
survey system. The Auto-tracking" total station AP-L1A, used
in conjunction with radio communication, a hand held data
collector and TDS Survey Pro or C&G Surveying Software
produces a unique surveying system that enables all field
surveying tasks to be carried out by one Surveyor working on his
Complete control of the total station is given
over to the rod person who is with the prism and at the right
place to make decisions about the surveying task being
Driven by servo motors the AP-L1A has the
ability to automatically search and lock on to the prism even
when moved erratically or at high speeds.
- HIGH SPEED TRACKING
AP-L1A is designed to rotate and track at high speeds.
This ensures that for normal surveying work the AP-L1A
can easily follow the prism, even at shorter ranges.
- AXES FOR SIGHTING, DISTANCE
MEASUREMENTS AND TRACKING COAXIAL
The worlds first 3 axes coaxial mechanism provides high
accuracy, simplicity of use and compact body design.
- TRACKING LIGHT
The red LED shows the direction of aiming for stake out
surveying and aids one person surveying by indicating the
tracking status of the AP-L1A.
- KEYBOARD AND DISPLAY
The wide dot matrix LCD (16 characters x 4 lines) offers
clear visibility of measurement data. Special measurement
functions are operated easily from the keyboard with the
- RS-232C CONNECTOR
The data terminal and telemetry terminal with serial
signal interface connectors are installed for direct
connection of AP-L1A to external PC or for installation
of radio data modems.
Driven by servo motors
the AP-L1A has the ability to automatically search and lock on to
the prism and an auto-tracking function to follow the prism even
when moved erratically or at high speeds. Standard EDM prisms can
be used with the AP-L1A, or for even easier one-person operation,
the Topcon 360 degree prism unit ensures tracking lock from all
remote control unit is compact and lightweight and allows two way
communication between the Robot and the Surveyor, giving
real-time position, measurement data and total control of the
AP-L1A from as far away as 2000 feet.
Choice of two data
collection systems. C&G Survey has added full AP-L1A Robotic
Control to their Field Plus software giving the Surveyor a full
range of functions for staking, topo and cogo. Also available is
the TDS Survey Pro system. Both softwares can be run on the Husky
FS2, FS3 or MP2500 giving the Surveyor a choice of hardware and
