Topcon IS Series

Advanced Imaging Technology

  •  Twin Digital Cameras – Wide Angle and 30x optical zoom TTL
  •  Intelligent Image Scanning
  •  XTRAC8 Auto-Tracking
  •  2000m reflectorless measurement
  •  Long range live video instrument control

Imagine the power, accuracy and speed of the proven Topcon QS-A robotic series, give it faster scanning capability and 2 cameras, and you have the IS-3. Advanced imaging and high-accuracy surveying techniques are combined in a single innovative instrument.

How it works:

Topcon’s IS combines our proven robotic technology with dual digital Imaging cameras to provide a
full colour, real-time image on a touch sensitive LCD display. View your data in real time and utilise the iSCAN options for thorough data collection. Select one of these routines to automatically measure feature points, cross sections or regular grids of points.

Point selection - as precisely as you need.

Thanks to digital imaging using our coaxial Through The Lens (TTL) camera, you can be confident that the point you select on the screen and measure is the point you need! Navigate your site with the
wide-angle camera and zoom to pinpoint features which can be measured up to 2000m away. This
can be carried out on the IS-3, or remotely on our field controllers, using the new WT-100, controlling the instrument by live video feed up to an amazing 300m away.

Built on a proven design.
