Trimble’s new total stations allow contractors to take control of layout

Trimble has introduced the new TS305 and TS315 from its Spectra Precision Optical line of products. The construction total stations provide a complete layout solution that eliminates the need for using measuring tapes, plumb bobs, theodolites or separate distance measuring equipment to give the general contractor more control and better accuracy on the job site. The TS305 and TS315 offer Direct Reflex (DR), a unique measuring capability, which provides contractors the ability to measure without the need for a prism. By allowing general contractors to layout an entire job with one setup, the construction total stations eliminate the need to perform multiple theodolite setups or other more time consuming methods. With the ability to do layout from the building axis by using control hubs, aligning along a building line and completing a 90 degree layout from anywhere on the job site, contractors no longer have to depend solely on other professionals to provide effective and accurate measurement and positioning. These construction total stations can also be used for as-built checks once work has been completed. With software developed specifically for the construction-focused user, the instruments are easy to learn and simple to use. The self-explanatory menu allows for the operator to adjust the equipment to different levels of usage, making execution easy for those who want to perform simple procedures to more detailed or advanced operations.
