Sokkia has launched what it says sets a new industry standard for total station performance and security with the introduction of the CX total station series.

Denny Welch, senior vice president-survey, said, “The CX series of total stations is not simply the next generation of total stations. It sets a high standard for the entire industry by being more powerful and more accurate with features never before available in survey instruments.”

The CX models (1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 arc second accuracies) feature the “most powerful and accurate” RED-tech electronic distance measurement (EDM) technology available. “With the ability to shoot up to 500 m (1,641 feet) reflectorless and 4,000 m (13,123 feet) with a prism, and the fastest measurement time in its class, the CX gives extraordinary freedom on any job site,” Welch said.

The new CX series also comes with TSshield, which Sokkia claims to be world’s first technology . This telematics-based communications module provides remote security and maintenance options.

Ray Kerwin, director, global planning-survey products, said, “TSshield enables owners to receive on-instrument notices in reference to firmware updates. Additionally, if the instrument is lost or stolen, a future firmware release will allow the owner to send a coded signal virtually anywhere in the world to the instrument to disable it.

“This type of remote control functionality will be the first such system in the industry.”

Kerwin also said the CX series, when using an external data collector, can utilize Magnet software solutions, “a cloud-based solution that streamlines the field and office connection. Real time connections … when and where you need it.”

Welch said, “The CX101 and CX102 total stations also utilizes Independent Angle Calibration System (IACS) technology which provides extremely reliable angle measurement.” This technology method allows for 1 arc second accurate measurements in a small instrument.

Using Bluetooth Class 1 technology, with the CX “you have long-distance wireless data communications more than 300 m (984 feet),” he said.

“With a battery life of up to 36 hours – the longest in the industry – and a rugged metal chassis that boasts an IP66 dustproof and waterproof rating, the CX is designed to surpass all job site expectations, regardless of conditions,” Welch said.

LC500, LC1100, LC1600, LC2100 and LC3000 from Linden Comansa will incorporate the new PowerLift systemNew PowerLift System from Linden Comansa

Since January 2012, all the cranes from series LC500, LC1100, LC1600, LC2100 and LC3000 from Linden Comansa will incorporate the new PowerLift system, which allows to improve 10% the load chart with reduced speeds. With the incorporation of this system, the cranes will be able to move the rated load that is indicated in the chart to a major distance (reach).

Linden Comansa’s R&D team has developed a system of control and limitation at the moment, named PowerLift that, by means of the automatic reduction of the speed of trolley and hoist enabling the lift extra load up to 10% for certain restricted applications.

This system does not allow the crane to have bigger maximum load capacity, but allows to increase 10% the rated load that appears in the load charts up to the maximum load according to the data sheet, in the same way as it allows to displace the same maximum load to major reach.
