Topcon CTS-3000

CTS-3000 construction total station

The CTS-3000 construction total station series features onboard software that simplifies staking. An extended keyboard enables easy operation and data input. The system software can also be operated with a hand-held data collector, like Topcon's FC-100. Reflectorless measurement capabilities up to 250m (820 ft.) and a prism type range of 3,000m (9842 ft.) to a single standard size prism provide the range needed to cover most job sites.

CTS-3000 Construction Total Station Features:

  • CTS – Contractors Total Station 
  • Layout and offset measurement made easy 
  • Reflectorless measurement to 250m 
  • Easy on-board software or use with hand-held collector 
  • Class 1, eye-safe laser

The pinpoint reflectorless measurement function will increase the productivity and flexibility of your measurements. Use a prism or not, it’s up to you. Utilize the CTS construction total station series to help you keep control on the job site. Replace lost or disturbed stakes, or use it to make spot measurements for elevations.
