Topcon IS-201 1" Imaging Total Station

Some products define an era. Others create a new one. The Topcon IS-201 scanning imaging station is that product. Its only limit is your imagination.

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'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.

Imaging Station features include:

  • Photo Fieldbook - creates a 360° Photo Fieldbook. In seconds.
  • Hybrid Positioning capable
  • IntelligentScan automatically recognizes significant features in the images. Its 20 pps scan rate is ideal for most applications, and its 2000m precision reflectorless range is tops in its class.
  • ImageDrive lets you visually operate from the controller and easily switch from imaging to prism tracking.
  • First with Independent Control to allow complete control from your computer, WiFi-equipped FC-2200, and other compatible devices.
  • Integrated dual-camera array with wide-area and 30x scope view so you can zoom in on the detail you need.

A Robot at Heart…
The IS doesn't forsake its robotic roots including unique to Topcon technology – our one-touch quick lock feature that set the standard in robotic target acquisition has taken another step forward, with the sleek new RC-4 system. The IS also offers reflectorless measurement superior to any other instrument available – capable of precision measurements at a mind-boggling 2000 meters! Packed with a wide variety of advanced technologies, the robotic total station capabilities of the IS demonstrates why Topcon continues to be the world's leader in precision survey instrumentation:

Robotic Total Station features include:

  • Innovative, completely cable-free system design
  • Hybrid Positioning capable
  • Superior X-TRAC™ Quick-Lock tracking technology
  • Full-color, graphical Windows Mobile instrument & field controller interface
  • The most advanced, longest range, and most powerful reflectorless technology available
  • Integrated interference free 2.4 GHz SpSp robotic data communications

The XTRAC8 robotic system upgrade is available for the IS instrument. This enhancement to firmware and software affects the robotic tracking, quick-lock, radios, and data collector performance.
