GeoMax X-Pole – when TPS meets GNSS

9 March 2017

The new GeoMax  X-Pole solution combining TPS with GNSS measurements in one system has been released.


By combining the advantages of both systems, the new solution significantly improves performance and flexibility on the jobsite.


The seamless integration of X-Pole into the field software allows a toggle between both measurement modes. Simply decide with the press of one button if you want to change from TPS to GNSS mode, such as when some points cannot be measured with TPS due to limited prism visibility. Once those points are measured, switch back to TPS mode. This enhances the efficiency of the system since it eliminates the need for cumbersome and time consuming station setups.


Zoom90`s Track360 functionality allows following a moving prism. In case of loss of lock, the X-Pole solution immediately finds the pole position by obtaining the coordinates from the GNSS receiver mounted on top of the prism.

Key Features:
•    Simultaneous TPS & GNSS measurements during setup
•    Change from TPS to GNSS measurement mode at the press of a button
•    TPS & GNSS measurements stored in one common database
•    Modular solution to be combined with any GeoMax Zenith15/25 Pro /35 Pro GNSS receiver
•    Flexible upgrade path even for robotic TPS & GNSS systems in the market

Field Software
The X-Pole functionality is supported exclusively in the GeoMax X-PAD Field Android &
WinMobile software from version 3.0 onward.


Availability

From today on orders can be placed.

GeoMax PicPoint – Contactless GNSS released

8 March 2017

The new GeoMax PicPoint with contactless GNSS was released today.


PicPoint is the innovative way of measuring points not directly accessible with the GNSS receiver. For this reason, the system is called “Contactless GNSS”.

With the “PicPoint” you can easily measure points directly in the field that cannot be measured with conventional GNSS measurements, such as on façade points or objects with restricted access possibility.


“PicPoint” combines GNSS measurements with images taken from the PicPoint camera attached to the pole. The innovative X-PAD field software running on an Android tablet uses photogrammetric principles to enable a point determination, CAD drawings and various COGO calculations such as Area and Tie Distance. Of course, measured points are visualised in the image allowing a visual completeness check of your survey directly on site. If you should ever have missed to measure some points, this can then be done easily in the office.

In all the listed situations, the PicPoint is a practical, fast and accurate solution that can be combined with any receiver of the GeoMax GNSS portfolio.

Key Specifications:
•    Range: up to 25 m
•    Accuracy:  Relative 5 mm / Absolute: 5cm
•    Resolution: up to 18 Megapixels
•    Battery: up to 350 images
•    Waterproof, Shockproof
•    Weight: 160 g

 

Field Software
The PicPoint functionality is supported exclusively in the GeoMax X-PAD Survey Android field software from version 3.0 onward.

Availability
From today on orders can be placed and units are shipped from stock.
