“Because you don’t have to level up the pole, you can just keep moving,” says Burke Asay, US/Canada product market- ing manager for Leica Geosystems. “It makes you very efficient in the field.” Automatic Pole Height Measurement Eliminates Errors If you’ve ever been on a survey and forgotten to enter a change in your prism pole height on your controller, you’re not alone; it happens to everyone. With the AP20 AutoPole, this problem is easily eliminated. Using a Bluetooth connection, the AP20 software automatically detects the pole height as soon as the upper tube of the pole is snap-locked into predefined lock positions, which are spaced at standard 5-cm intervals. The achieved accuracy in height is +/-1.0mm. Since you no longer have to read and type height changes in the field, you save time in post-processing corrections and avoid returning to the field to remeasure. Automatic Target Identification PreventsWork Interruptions On a busy construction site with multiple sensors and targets, finding and staying locked on to the correct target can be a challenge. The AP20 AutoPole overcomes this issue with the TargetID function, which uniquely identifies the correct target and ensures that your instrument will always lock to it. Technology Extends Your Surveying Potential Finding and keeping top talent, solving complex project challenges with confidence, creating accurate, meaningful deliverables quickly with no compromises—these are just some of the requirements to be successful in today’s fast- paced surveying and engineering professions. Technology provides an advantage. With innovations like the AP20 that increase your efficiency and confidence, you can completemore work in less time and continue to grow your business.
