Trimble unveils SX10 Scanning Total Station
Trimble has unveiled a next-generation survey instrument, the Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station
Trimble has unveiled a next-generation survey instrument, the Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station, merging high-speed 3D scanning, enhanced Trimble VISION imaging technology and high-accuracy total station measurements for experts in the field.
The innovative solution provides surveyors and geospatial professionals with the capabilities and versatility to handle projects from traditional surveys to complex 3D modelling.
The SX10, with Trimble's patented technology, enables the capture of both high-accuracy measurements critical for traditional survey projects and rich point cloud data at 26,600 points per second with a range of up to 600 metres.
This means surveyors can include 3D scanning as part of everyday workflows, dramatically increasing productivity for topographic surveys, roadway and corridor surveys, volumetric surveys and infrastructure as-builts.
Ron Bisio, vice president of Trimble's Geospatial Division commented: "This is an innovative technology and a significant breakthrough in surveying capability. The unique advantages the SX10 offers surveyors, engineers and geospatial professionals will allow them to tackle virtually any project with ease.
"The SX10 Scanning Total Station is a dynamic and versatile solution offering the latest technologies without changing time-tested field and office workflows—while also simplifying equipment investments for difficult projects."
With the combined versatility of 3D scanning and surveying removing the need for a dedicated 3D scanner, the technology saves significant operational costs and allows businesses to expand their capabilities to include additional applications such as building as-builts, utility design surveys and forensic reconstruction.
With this, the Trimble SX10 Scanning Total Station empowers users to satisfy even the toughest client demands.
