Trimble Focus 10 Robotic Total Station

As a surveyor, you never know what kind of job tomorrow will bring ... be ready for anything with the Spectra Precision ® FOCUS ® 10 Total Station. Spectra Precision’s FOCUS product line consists of optical total stations featuring exceptional speed, accuracy and reliability.

If you’re like most surveyors, you’re interested in your efficiency and quickly establishing full control over the survey site. The servomotors that drive the FOCUS 10 Total Station provide a higher level of reliability, quality and control – allowing you to complete projects faster. Compare the performance to any mechanical product and it’s clear that the FOCUS 10 is capable of enhancing your efficiency.

From high-order control surveys to fast-paced construction stakeout or topographic data collection, you can rely on the FOCUS 10, even in harsh outdoor conditions. Easy to use, affordable and tough, a FOCUS 10 Total Station is the solution you’ve been looking for.

The FOCUS 10 Total Station offers two angle accuracies to suit a variety of applications. Choose from:

  • 3" for high-angular precision suitable for most land survey applications
  • 5" for the ultimate topographical survey solution

Increase your reach and improve safety for your survey crews. The FOCUS 10 comes standard with long-range, reflectorless technology, allowing you to measure remote objects without a prism. The FOCUS 10 enables you to reach greater than 1,970 ft (600 m) to a 90% reflective Kodak Gray Card and 656 ft (200 m) to a 18% reflective Kodak Gray Card. FOCUS 10 uses an eye-safe Laser Class 1 for optimal user operation.

Do you want to increase your efficiency? Servo-driven instruments out perform mechanical total stations in survey precision and speed.

By adding a wireless communication between the rod and the instrument, it is possible to drive and manage measurements completely at the rod. Optical surveys can now be performed with only one operator, firmly placing the power at the place of measurement into the hands of the robotic operator.

Regardless of the model chosen, the FOCUS 10 allows measurements to a single prism up to 18,040 ft (5,500 m) with an accuracy of ±(3 mm +3 ppm). The accuracy of the FOCUS 10 assures the integrity of measurements taken with all instruments. By including sensor technology, the FOCUS 10 allows the operator to be absolutely certain that the signal is coming back from the reflector—not some other reflective object.

Not only are four-speed FOCUS 10 servomotors easy to use, they also provide increased productivity over mechanical staking and layout solutions. FOCUS 10’s built-in servomotors control both horizontal and vertical motion. You control the servomotors with adjustment screws—simply turn the motion screws to activate the servomotor gears for fast, smooth and sensitive angle results. With no need for traditional motion locks, the slow motion tangents are endless. The adjustment screws are ergonomically designed so you can align the instrument with just a slight circular movement of the finger.

Save time when measuring multiple faces to targets–after the first set of measurements, the instrument can be automatically turned to face two to measure the targets again, allowing you to make the fine adjustments before measuring.

To speed up stakeout applications, the servomotors turn the instrument to line with a single key press—the instrument can be positioned horizontally, vertically or both. The servomotors can also be used to save time extending a line—a single keystroke will turn the instrument 180 degrees.

Want to make your FOCUS 10 even more powerful? Team your total station with a rugged TDS data collector (Ranger ™, Recon ® or Nomad ™) and TDS Survey Pro software. Survey Pro makes data collection faster and easier, and you can rely on the capabilities of TDS data collectors to keep your data secure.
