Sokkia has introduced its newest robotic total station — the iX series.

Company officials say it is the most accurate prism tracking possible. It is also lighter and a third smaller than previous units.

“Ultrasonic technology is the driving force for the iX Series,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products for Sokkia. “The UltraSonic motors are the thinnest, lightest, and most reliable on the market. With a rotation speed of 150 degrees per-second, the iX series offers the efficiency of a single-operator robotic system and the power of long-range reflectorless measurements of up to 800 m and 6,000 m with a reflector.

“Our new UltraTrac technology gives you increased prism-tracking strength in all conditions. Advanced instrument algorithms deliver the confidence you need to move ahead,” he said.
