The angle measurement system - for horizontal and vertical angles - is a very significant component of the TM30. It must guarantee highly precise and accurate angle measurements under the high speed performance of the direct drives.
Important characteristics and advantages of the LeicaTM30 angle measurement are the high measurement frequency - up to 5000 angle measurements per second - and the quadruple angle detection system.
The standard deviation is calculated according to ISO 17123-3. For the TS30, the angle measurement accuracy is 0.15mgon (0.5”).
The motorization of the Leica TM30 uses direct drives based on the piezo principle, which directly transforms electric power into mechanical movements.
The Leica TM30 is the only total station which uses direct drives based on the piezo principle for horizontal and vertical movements of its alidade and telescope.
Compared to conventional drives, the main advantages of the Leica TM30 direct drives are the following properties:
- High speed (up to 200gon/s)
- High acceleration (up to 400gon/s2)
- Long durability and robustness
- No noise emission
- Compact design
- No power consumption at rest
Electro-optical Distance Measurement
For the electro-optical distance measurements (EDM) on prisms, reflector tapes or natural targets, a visible laser beam, which is coaxial to the optical axis, is transmitted by Leica Geosystems’ PinPoint EDMsystem.
Leica Geosystems’ reflectorless PinPoint R1000 EDM measures to natural targets at ranges of more than 1000m. To realize these long distance measurements without any prisms or reflector tapes, Leica Geosystems’ proven System Analyzer was implemented. This procedure allows the evaluation of the total signal information for the distance determination and combines the advantages of the phase and time-of-flight measurements without having their individual disadvantages
For the Leica TM30total station, the Leica PinPoint EDM was improved to achieve even greater accuracy. The established PinPoint EDM enables distance measurement accuracy, on Leica round prisms (GPH1P), of 0.6mm + 1ppm (tested according to ISO 17123-4).
The PinPoint EDM provides many advantages for the distance measurements of the Leica TM30 total station. Beside the very high measurement quality and reliability, the Leica PinPoint EDM allows measurements even under adverse atmospheric conditions, such as dust, smoke, mist, rain or snowfall, etc.
