How much time would you save on every surveying project if you didn’t have to stop to level your prism pole or measure the pole height after an adjustment? These are just a couple of the advantages of the new Leica AP20 AutoPole from Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon. The groundbreaking technology combines an intelligent sensor module with a new reflector pole and operates with Leica Geosystems’ existing automated total stations to make surveying workflows fast and autonomous. Tilt Compensation Increases Productivity When Leica Geosystems in 2017 introduced the first calibration-free tilt-compensating GNSS solution, the Leica GS18 T, it was a true game-changer. The ability to measure without leveling the pole provided productivity gains of 20 percent or more. Now those same productivity gains can be realized in total station surveys with the new Leica AP20 AutoPole. The system’s tilt compensation capability decreases measurement time and increases flexibility and safety onsite by allowing you to easily measure points in inaccessible or hazardous locations. Rather than keeping an eye on the level bubble, you can focus on where you’re walking. A quick glance at your field software provides real-time information on the current pole tip accuracy. You can also flip the pole upside down to take inverted measurements. New Prism Pole System Provides Significant Time Savings An innovative prism pole systemwith tilt compensation, automatic pole height readings and unique target identification takes total station surveying to the next level.
