SENSORS: Leica Geosystems’ Leica TM30, which succeeds the company’s Leica TCS2003 and TCA1800, incorporates accuracy, reliability and robust design for monitoring applications. Equipped with direct drives based on piezo technology, the Leica TM30 allows shorter measurement cycles when working with multiple prisms, is fast and quiet. It offers angle measurements of 0.5 or 1 inch and distances can be measured with the company’s PinPoint EDM Technology, which has precision of 0.6 mm + 1 ppm on prisms. On natural surfaces, accuracy of 2 mm + 2 ppm is achieved.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
