Topcon announces the new SOKKIA iX Series as -the world’s fastest, smallest, and lightest robotic total station

June 30, 2016

Topcon Corporation (TOKYO: 7732) announces the release of the SOKKIA iX series robotic total station, offering world’s fastest turning speed, smallest size, and lightest weight.

The iX series provides incredible efficiency in surveying and stake out operation with 3D data at construction site.

  • One-person operation with auto-tracking function
  • Provides high-precision and stable measurement with auto-collimating function
  • Quick and smooth measurement with high speed turning
  • High portability with a light weight and small body

Additionally, the iX series is the only total station in the market equipped with a SIM card slot that offers Internet connectivity (IoT) *1 *2.
The iX series is a forefront total station with precise and reliable Topcon technology.

【SOKKIA iX series main features】

  • World’s fastest turning speed*1*2
    The system offers the world’s fastest turning speed of 180 degree-per second with UltraSonic direct drive motor, which also contributes to its ultra-slim body.
  • World’s smallest ultra-compact body*1
    The newly designed parts contribute to the iX’s ultra-compact body. It was designed by re-examining the robotic total station structure, which produced a size nearly the same as a manual total station.
  • World’s lightest : 5.7 kg*1
    iX is a third smaller than any previous Sokkia robotic instrument and the same weight as a manual total station — making it easy to carry and set up at a project site.
  • World’s first Internet-connected(IoT) total station! *1 *2
    The integrated SIM card slot (world’s first) and wireless LAN network devices enables operator to access “MAGNET™ Enterprise” — a Web application that allows direct cloud-based data managing and sharing from project site— from the iX pre-installed application “MAGNET™ Field.”
  • Highest quality and environmental durability
    The tough-designed iX has passed impact, vibration, high-temperature and humidity testing that ensures consistent performance in any harsh environments. The IP65 rating confirms the highest environmental durability.
  • Compact and high precision EDM
    The redesigned optical lens is smaller than ever before. The new light measurement system performs at a highly precise level “1mm+2ppm” *2
  • Available auto-collimating and auto-tracing model— with a possible optional upgrade from auto-collimating to tracking. *2
    Auto-collimating and auto-tracking models are offered. Upgrading from auto-collimating to auto-tracking is possible.

*1 As robotic total station, by our research in January 2016.
