Product Description


Topcon’s ImagingStation (IS) combines the best of two worlds, advanced imaging and high-accuracy surveying, incorporating real-time field imagery with spatial data.

The IS’s powerful functionality is controlled using Topcon’s exclusive ImageMaster™ software that produces “photography with dimension”, a revolutionary and cost-effective alternative to laser scanning.

Scanning, Imaging and Robotic Total Station
The power, accuracy, and speed of a total station with the auto-scanning capabilities of a laser scanner; Topcon’s IS-3 takes material management, as-buit design and structural/environmental monitoring right at your fingertips. The IS-3 has six different methods to scan: Grid scan by a specific plane, Grid scan by square, Grid scan by a polygon, Grid scan by 1 line, Grid scan by All-Around, and Grid scan feature.

Two Digital Cameras
The IS-3 features two dual digital imaging cameras providing color real-time image on the touch LCD or on a data controller. Their is a wide angle 4 X digital camera and a 30X camera integrated through the lens so you know exactly where the instrument crosshairs are located.

Long Range Reflectorless Technology
With the long range non-prism range of up to 6.500 feet (2,000m) the robotic instrument can now scan long distances as well. Mining and monitoring applications can be accomplished.

Integrated Spread Spectrum Radio
The user has the option to customize the system with either a RC-4 for spread spectrum communication or a WT-100 for Wifi. The Rc-4 has the optional quicklock where as the WT-100 has the touch drive. Simply touch the screen image to drive the cross hairs where you want. For the highest degree of data accuracy, clarity of image is key. That’s why Topcon incorporates a 30x telescopic zoom with a Quarter Video Graphics Array (QVGA) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). Using the telescope, pinpoint features to be measured or monitored precisely up to 6,500 feet (2,000m) away.

Wifi Communication and Remote Networking
The IS has Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) capability and can be controlled remotely via network or internet connection. Imagine sitting in the comfort of your office or vehicle and being able to scan, measure, control, and see what your instrument is seeing.

Photo Fieldbook
A 360 degree panoramic image can be collected from any occupied instrument point historical representing all the features from the setup that day. Document the jobsite with photographs referenced on the horizontal and vertical angle grid.
