Topcon IS-3 Imaging Station
Does more than a robotic instrument! Does more than a laser scanner!
The Topcon IS-3 combines the power of both a laser scanner and a robotic instrument
into one superior long-range, imaging robotic system.
The power, accuracy, and speed of a Total Station with the auto-scanning capabilities of a Laser Scanner; Topcon’s IS-3 takes material management, as-built design, and structural/environmental monitoring out of the clouds and puts it at your fingertips…
A new way to scan
Topcon’s IS-3 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-3. The long non-prism (6,500’ (2,000m)) robotic instrument now can scan long ranges as well. Mining and monitoring applications can be accomplished with the IS-3.
The IS-3 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-3 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 a LCD. Using the telescope, pinpoint features to be measured or monitored precisely up to 6,500’ (2,000m) away.
How it Works
Topcon’s IS-3 features dual digital imaging cameras providing a color, real-time image on the touch LCD display.
To define a scan area, simply tap the image display, or for uniform measurement of an area, select the grid feature. The IS-3 “locks” these points to their exact position on the image, even when the instrument is rotated.
Once all points to be measured are chosen, the IS-3 performs a reflectorless measurement of each point.
