IS-3 Imaging Station
Does more than a robotic instrument! Does more than a laser scanner!
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.
How it Works
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:
- Topcon’s X-TRAC 8 advanced auto-tracking technology provides quick and powerful tracking under the harshest conditions.
- Two built-in digital cameras, a wide-angle and a 30x tele-zoom with complete image storage.
- Continuous monitoring which complements the every day function of robotic surveying.
