Data measurements can be misinterpreted by anyone, from office team members to clients. And changes due to poor communication become exponentially more expensive with each step in the project’s development. The R-400VDN total station combines a non-prism total station with an advanced 3.1-megapixel digital camera, enabling you to visualise the points measured. Detailed pictures made with the Pentax Visio Total Station enable all to accurately review the actual situation at the time of measurement – helping catch possible mistakes in the process. Detailed pictures rovide immediate visual feedback.


Rectangular and polar data can easily be recorded at the same time. All data is saved to the SD card in CSV format, ready to use on your PC.


The point mark can easily be placed on the measured point, just like operating a digital camera.
The colour of the point mark can be changed depending on the image to increase its visibility.


The point attributes and the measurement values can be superimposed as a layer on the image captured. All recorded data is now shown on one image, combining the imaging and measuring functionalities of the R-400VDN.

The R-400VDN goes one step beyond the competition for verifiable results: each location capture results in a digital image that displays exactly what the user was viewing and targeting at the time of
measurement. This provides an extra level of verification and eliminates potential confusion over data and their associated targets.
