3-D local positioning system offers higher speed operation under all conditions

Topcon Positioning Systems‘ 3-D local positioning system – the LPS-900 – includes Topcon’s X-Trac tracking technology and integrated radio communication for higher speed operation under all conditions. Providing dual use as a base for high-accuracy machine automation or traditional robotic surveying operation, the LPS-900 supplies grade information in a continuous stream via high-speed radio and allows users to switch from GPS to LPS whenever necessary. The system compiles electronic site plans and refers back to them to control the grade of machines. The measurement differences are then transmitted to the machine via radio link.
