The new Trimble® SPS730 and SPS930 Universal Total Stations were designed specifically for the high traffic scenarios typically found on a construction site. Exclusive Trimble MultiTrack technology locks on and tracks passive prisms for applications such as monitoring or control measurements, and active prism targets for dynamic measurements required for grade control applications.
Trimble pioneered this active tracking technology, which allows the operator to assign a unique target number to their earthmoving machine or site positioning rover, ensuring the instrument will always track the correct target. This unique Trimble technology ignores environmental obstructions and eliminates the possibility that the instrument would lock onto the wrong reflective surface such as a reflective vest or light cover on a vehicle. Motor graders and dozers can operate at faster speeds without fear of losing instrument lock. Trimble active tracking technology prevents costly delays and subsequent rework; faster machine speed means increased productivity and faster results to grade.
Fastest and Tightest Accuracy Total Stations on the Market
The Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Station is accurate to one arc second in the vertical and horizontal angles, making it ideal for fine grading operations where the accuracy tolerance is very tight. The Trimble SPS730 Universal Total Station provides three arc second accuracy in the horizontal plane and two arc second accuracy in the vertical, for contractors who want to take advantage of the same proven Trimble technology at a lower price point.
The Trimble SPS730 and SPS930 Universal Total Stations also lead the market with the fastest update rate available today. Featuring fixed, low latency, synchronized data and a 20 Hz update rate, the Trimble Universal Total Stations allow the user to reliably track a machine target and know the data is being passed from the instrument to the machine as quickly and accurately as possible. The motor grader or dozer operator can conduct real-time fine grading operations to millimeter accuracy while minimizing rework and increasing profits.
