3 July 2006 – Leica Geosystems has introduced Leica GPS900, a mid-range RTK GPS system that delivers productivity for a wide variety of tasks. The new Leica GPS900 uses Leica Geosystems’ proven GPS technology. Consisting of a Leica RX900 Controller and a Leica ATX900 GPS Antenna the all-on-the-pole GPS900 RTK rover is ideal for one-person stakeout and topographic tasks.
With its flexible, easy-to-use onboard software, Leica GPS900 is the solution for a wide range of jobs including foundation and drainage work, alignment stakeout, topographic and as-built surveys. For the one-man-team, Leica GPS900 is easy to setup and use: the RTK reference and rover fit easily into a single rugged case.
The GPS900 rover is lightweight and optimised to reduce operator fatigue. The icon-based, graphical onboard software can be easily operated using the ¼ VGA touchscreen. Import and export functionality allows the instrument to be compatible with Leica TPS400, Leica TPS800 and System 1200 TPS and GPS.
