The Total Station | 15 Reflectorless Distance Measurement Most of the Leica Geosystems total stations include not only a conventional infrared distancer that measures to prisms, but also an integrated laser distancer that requires no reflector. You can switch between these two options. The reflectorless distance measurement brings many advantages where points are accessible only with difficulty or not at all, for example during the recording of building faces, when positioning pipes and for measurements across gorges or fences. The co-axial visible red laser dot is also suitable for marking targets in connection with the recording of tunnel profiles or indoor work. Automatic Target Aiming Many total stations from Leica Geosystems are equipped with an automatic target aiming system. This makes targeting faster and easier. It is enough to point the telescope approximately at the reflector; the touch of a button then automatically triggers the fine pointing, the angle- and distance measurements, and records all of the values. This technology also makes it possible to carry out fully-automatic measurements. Automatic target aiming can also be switched to a mode in which moving targets can be followed and measured; after establishing the initial contact with the target the instrument locks on to it and tracks it. Advantages: High speed of measurement combined with a constant measuring accuracy independent of the observer.
