The Topcon IS-3 combines the power of both a laser scanner and a robotic instrument
into one superior long-range, imaging robotic system.
It has the power, accuracy, and speed of a Total Station and with the auto-scanning capabilities of a Laser Scanner; Topcon’s IS-3 takes material management, as-built design, and structural/environmental monitoring out of the clouds and puts it at your fingertips.
The IS-3’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.
Topcon’s IS-3 features dual digital imaging cameras providing a color, real-time image on the touch LCD display.
To define a scan area, simply tap the image display, or for uniform measurement of an area, select the grid feature. The IS-3 “locks” these points to their exact position on the image, even when the instrument is rotated.
Once all points to be measured are chosen, the IS-3 performs a reflectorless measurement of each point.
When used in conjunction with Topcon’s unique RC-4 remote control system, the IS-3 will track prisms up to 1000 m away.
Additional features of the IS-3 include:
