The Trimble® S6 Total Station provides the power and flexibility required by today’s Surveying Professionals. With the industry’s most advanced technology and available feature set, the Trimble S6 Total Station will meet the changing needs of your business, allowing your investment to go further.


Now available with optional Trimble VISION™ technology, the Trimble S6 gives you the power to see everything the instrument sees without a trip back to the tripod. Direct your survey with live video images on the controller. Now you are free to capture measurements, to prism or reflectorless surfaces, remotely, and with point-and-click efficiency. The on-board camera integrates surveyed data with the live scene images, so you can verify the work that you’ve done before leaving the job site. Calibrated photo documentation provides customers with deliverables they know they can trust.


Trimble DR Plus™ range measurement technology provides extended range of Direct Reflex measurement without a prism to exceptionally long range distances. Hard-to-reach or unsafe targets are no obstacle to the Trimble S6. Trimble DR Plus, combined with MagDrive™, creates unmatched capability for quick and safe measurements, without compromising on accuracy.

MagDrive Servo Technolog

The Trimble S6 Total Station redefines surveying instrument performance with unsurpassed integration of servos, angle sensors and measurement technology. The instrument’s advanced error compensation provides fast, accurate measurement every time. With smooth, silent MagDrive servo motors, the Trimble S6 offers exceptional speed.

Trimble SurePoint Accuracy Assurance 

The Trimble S6 Total Station aims and stays on target through windy weather, vibrations, handling, and sinkage. Trimble SurePoint™ technology enables the Trimble S6 to actively correct for unwanted movement ensuring accurate pointing and measurement every time. Reduce aiming error, avoid costly re-measurement and be confident in your results with Trimble SurePoint. With its exclusive MultiTrack™ technology and Target ID capabilities, surveyors can choose the type of target, passive or active, that best suits the jobsite conditions and be confident that they will find and lock to the correct target.


With GPS Search the Trimble S6 locks onto a prism in just seconds. Using a consumer grade GPS card with Bluetooth receiver or your survey grade GNSS in a Trimble I.S. rover configuration, GPS Search uses GPS positioning at the robotic rod to locate or reacquire targets rapidly. With GPS Search, waiting for target search becomes a thing of the past.

Integrated Surveying 

Put the equipment in your truck or van to the best possible use by combining your GNSS with your robotic rod into a Trimble I.S. Rover™. In clear sky, enjoy the high productivity of GNSS measurements. In obstructed areas, Trimble Access seamlessly switches to optical measurements. Or collect both GNSS and optical data simultaneously for redundant results. With the Trimble I.S. Rover, you have the freedom to use the best tool for the jobsite conditions, optimizing your productivity
