• Integrates advanced optical surveying, metric imaging and 3D scanning; • Trimble® VISION™ technology puts a live, instrument POV (Point Of View), video stream right on the controller—allowing users to remotely control the instrument from the data collector; • Included Trimble software can simultaneously incorporate GNSS data from rod-mounted receiver, while the instrument is scanning; • 3D scanner can gather points from 4 feet to over 800 feet, at up to 15 points/second, with shots spaced as tight as 0.032 feet; • Trimble DR Plus™ EDM allows Direct Reflex (DR) shots up to 4,200 feet; • Maximum prism long range mode shots over 18,000 feet; • Robotic mode range up to 2,600 feet; instrument rotates at 115º/second; • Built-in digital camera captures 2,048x1,536 pixel color images—images show the location and number of gathered points, reducing need for field sketching; • Integrates with Trimble Access™ Software and the Trimble Tablet Rugged PC, offering more imagery and wireless communication options; • Color images from built-in camera combine with scanning data to create accurately rendered 3D models; • Trimble RealWorks® Software readily converts VX data to Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) and 3D walkthroughs, with photographic data, for immediate review.
The Trimble® VX™ Spatial Station is a superb choice for land surveyors who want to add 3D scanning capability to their offerings while also seriously upgrading their ability to capture data conventionally with Direct Reflex (DR) and robotic surveying. The VX is ideal for topographic work, and for combining conventional surveying with detailed scans of particular features—for example, while performing a topographic survey of a creek bed, the operator can switch to scanning mode to create precise models of relevant drainage structures. The Trimble VX incorporates Trimble VISION™ technology, which feeds a live, instrument-POV video stream to the Trimble VX’s controller. Operators can work in DR mode remotely and avoid difficult or dangerous (or non-shady) setups and still collect necessary data. Trimble VISION™ also lets operators click on the video image to gather all points needed, and shows gathered points so that repetition is avoided. Areas to be scanned can be outlined graphically, right on the touch-screen controller. The Trimble VX is a very effective robotic total station that tracks and records shots as efficiently as any instrument on the market. Users can also add their GNSS receiver to the robotic rod and Trimble software will seamlessly integrate the two data streams for maximum flexibility. The Trimble VX Spatial Station is the flagship instrument from one of surveying’s top manufacturers.
