US: Leica Geosystems has launched two new total stations, the iCON builder 60 and the iCON robot 60, both built especially with construction workers in mind and providing an entry into the world of Leica Geosystems’ CONstruction (iCON) solutions. The easy-to-use total stations focus on foremen and site supervisors, and come with integrated software that runs on a variety of different iCON devices. Leica claims that the new iCON builder 60 and robot 60 series complete routines faster and simplify a variety of tasks in the building and construction industry, for engineering and infrastructure applications as well as for BIM.
The two-person operated iCON builder 60 as well as the one-person operated iCON robot 60 total stations come with the onboard iCON build or iCON site software, which is also integrated in the recently announced iCON CC55 PDA and CC65/66 tablets that can be used as a data logger or controller. By using the same clear menus and graphics found on all iCON devices, training and support is significantly minimised. The new total stations also offer users working in the BIM industry the new iCONstruct telematics option that connects the BIM operator with the layout crews in the field, allowing for online file exchange and remote support.
