Tilt-compensated total station pole

By on 7 April, 2022

Leica Geosystems (distributed by CR Kennedy) has introduced the Leica AP20 AutoPole, a solution for automated total stations that combines an intelligent sensor module with the AP Reflector Pole and operates with Leica Geosystems’ existing automated total stations to create autonomous workflows.

According to Leica, it is the world’s first device on the market that solves three common workflow challenges: holding the pole vertical and stable, entering the pole height manually into the field software and locking to a foreign target on a site with multiple reflectors.

The tilt compensation of the AP20 AutoPole increases efficiency when working with total stations; there is no longer a need to level the pole for measurements and stakeout. Tilt compensation decreases measurement time and increases flexibility and safety on site by enabling the measuring of points in locations that are inaccessible or put the user at risk. By updating the pole height automatically in the field software, the system ensures that the height on record is always correct, which avoids errors, time-consuming post-processing and returning to the field to re-measure. Additionally, the AP20 AutoPole’s target identification ensures the user’s instrument will always lock to the correct target.
