Quantify deformation movement at sub-millimeter accuracy to identify even the smallest changes in displacement and increase site safety on high-risk monitoring projects. Operating a real-time automated deformation monitoring solution allows you to create valuable datasets and analyze the forces at work on your project, then take appropriate action in a timely manner.
Topcon’s new Measuring Stations MS05AXII and MS1AXII feature a number of technological and functional enhancements that provide higher accuracy, higher speed, and higher work efficiency in structural monitoring and large-scale 3D measurement applications.
In addition to natural hazards, such as harsh weather, soil movement, or change of ground water level, engineering structures such as buildings, dams, tunnels and bridges can always be affected by movement caused by excavation, heavy construction and piling placement. The MS series provides superior measuring precision and is equipped with environmental protection and functions necessary in monitoring applications allowing it to be utilized in a high-precision monitoring solution.
The MS05AXII, when using reflective sheet targets, can achieve sub-millimeter accuracy allowing for measuring the shape and alignment of large scale structures such as plants and bridges, as well as, precise measurements of ships, railroad cars and airplanes.
The MS Series offers high precision angle accuracy (MS05AXII: 0.5", MS1AXII: 1") which can be used for a wide range of precise measurements. Equipped with an automatic tracking system, the high precision robotic measuring station can be configured with a remote control system.
Incorporating an advanced auto-pointing algorithm, optimized for monitoring applications, it automatically sites the prism closest to the telescope center regardless of the distance from the instrument. This works even if multiple prisms or other reflective objects are in the field of view, dramatically enhances the reliability in periodic monitoring of predetermined prism locations.
The MS Series automatically searches within the predetermined area to quickly measure the reflectors as initial positions for subsequent routine measurements. The function works in low light or dark conditions where the reflectors cannot be clearly seen by the human eye.
