Topcon IS-03 Imaging Station
The power, accuracy, and speed of a total station with the auto-scanning capabilities of a laser scanner; Topcon’s IS takes material management, as-built design, and structural/environmental monitoring out of the clouds and puts it at your fingertip.

A new way to scan
Topcon’s IS combines the best of two worlds, advanced imaging and high-accuracy surveying, incorporating real-time field imagery with spatial data. The IS-3’s powerful functionality is controlled using Topcon’s exclusive ImageMaster™ software that produces “photography with dimension”, a revolutionary and cost effective alternative to laser scanning.

Long Range Scanning
Nobody can provide the combination of laser scanning and robotic surveying like Topcon with the IS. With the long non-prism range of up to 6,500 ft. (2,000m), the robotic instrument can now scan long distances as well. Mining and monitoring applications can be accomplished with the IS.

Remote Networking
The IS has WLAN capability and can be controlled remotely. Imagine sitting in the comfort of your office or vehicle and being able to scan, measure, control, and see what the IS is seeing.

Touch Drive - Turn and select a point on screen
Simply touch the screen image to drive the cross hairs where you want. For the highest degree of data accuracy, clarity of image is key. That’s why Topcon incorporates telescopic zoom with an LCD. Using the telescope, pinpoint features to be measured or monitored precisely up to 6,500 ft. (2,000m) away.

Continuous Monitoring
With a WiFi connection, image-based monitoring can be done continuously and remotely. Whether done with mounted prisms or reflectorlessly, this monitoring function compliments the everyday use function of our robotic surveying. The IS-3 features Bluetooth® and WiFi technology making continuous monitoring easy.

Whether monitoring a mine, creating volume calculations, creating an area topo, structural/environmental monitoring, or even documenting as-builts, Topcon’s IS-3 provides a value-priced alternative to laser scanning.
