I am looking for input regrading reflectorless total stations. I utilize a TOPCON 802A robot in my solo operation. It is a great instrument that I purchased new in 2002, but does not have reflectorless ability. I am exploring adding a light reflectorless total station that could take some load of the robot for use in general traversing, preliminary cadastral work and add the reflectorless ability I am looking for.
I am somewhat partial to TOPCON, use SurvCE for collection software and would like dual-axis compensation, 1,000 foot reflectorless range and would be happy with 5" angular accuracy.
Any recommendations or past experiences would be very much appriciated.
Thanks in advance,
Matt (in Wisconsin)
