Topcon DS-104AC Direct Aiming Total Station

  • Works in all conditions

    A professional motorized total station, the DS is a mid-ranged positioning product for the construction professional who is looking for productivity enhancement from servo motors and XPointing™ technology. The MAGNET® on-board software has an intuitive interface to assist with staking out complex structures. This rugged waterproof designed total station has the latest technology of TSshield™ advanced security and maintenance, and exclusive LongLink™ communications.


    Work directly on the bright, color touchscreen or with the alpha-numeric keyboard, to achieve higher levels of production with MAGNET® Field on-board software. The DS total station can be used on a wide variety of applications, from building layout to earthwork volumes, and land surveying.


    A world’s first – TSshield™

    Topcon is proud to offer another world’s first technology in all DS Series total stations – TSshield™. Every instrument is equipped with a telematics-based multi-function communications module providing the ultimate security and maintenance capabilities for your investment.


    If the activated instrument is lost or stolen, send a coded signal to the instrument and disable it. This feature secures the total station anywhere in the world.


    In the same module you have daily connectivity to cloud-based Topcon servers that can inform you of available software updates and firmware enhancements.


    Auto collimation Xpointing™ technology

    The DS Series employing Xpointing technology features a new intelligent algorithm that automatically aims to the prism with precisely corrected angle readings. The Xpointing technology works in dim or dark conditions where the prism can be difficult to find. 


    Whatever the job requires and wherever operators must go, the the DS gets your job done faster, while maintaining accuracy.


    Ultra-powerful, advanced EDM 

    The 1,000 m reflectorless measurement is achieved with a smaller beam spot size. Measurements can be as fast as 0.9 seconds.


    LongLink™ communications

    LongLink is used to establish a wireless linkage with a data terminal at the prism side, in distances up to 300 m*. Configure an economical robotic system to enable even more productive data collection. Graphical navigation is available at the pole.


    Advanced angle accuracy 

    Topcon’s advanced angle encoder technology with exclusive calibration system provides “Best in Class” angle accuracy, up to 1-second (DS 101).


    USB upgrade kit for auto-tracking

    The DS Series firmware can be upgraded to automatically track a prism. This USB upgrade process is simple and will enhance productivity. The USB port can also be used to transfer data files.
