Instrument maker Sokkia Corp. said it has boosted capabilities of its DX series of total stations with the introduction of the DX-200 model.

“The DX-200 is ideal for the professional looking for a mid-range, auto-pointing total station that can become a full-robotic instrument with a simple firmware upgrade,” said Ray Kerwin, the company’s director of global surveying products. “Advanced functionality such as hybrid positioning can be added to the robotic unit, making the DX-200 a versatile system for multiple applications.”
The DX-200 can be used with the RC-PR5 remote controller for increased Bluetooth wireless operating range.

“The remote allows for rapid prism search and lock up to 2000 feet (600 meters) away,” Kerwin said.

Standard features of the series include Direct Aiming auto-collimation technology, TSshield security and maintenance, onboard Magnet integrated software and Sokkia’s patented RED-tech reflectorless measurement system.
