Get the job done quickly and easily in any environment!

The Sokkia DX Robotic Total Station is the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective total station available on the New Zealand Market. Utilising Direct Aiming Technology, the DX Series provides simple operation without comprising on precision.

“The DX robotic solution sets the standard for design, performance and price at the entry level of the robotic total station market”, said Denny Welch, Sokkia Survey Senior Vice President. Instead of manually sighting a prism, by using Direct Aiming™ auto-collimation Technology, an operator has the ability to control the instrument directly from the prism pole. This one-man operation capability enhances productivity and minimises personnel costs. The aiming technology also works in dim or dark conditions where finding the prism location can prove challenging. Whatever the job requires and wherever the operators must go, the DX makes the job easier and faster with accuracy you can trust!

New! The Sokkia DX now comes with an optional add on; the RC-PR5 On-Demand Remote. The remote has a built-in directional sensor that constantly monitors prism movement enabling it to perform rapid prism search at any position. Additionally, the series includes TSSheild™ advanced security and maintenance technology and MAGNET™ integrated software

Sokkia is proud to offer a World’s First technology – TSshield. Every TSsheild enabled instrument is equipped with a telematics-based communications module that provides remote security and maintenance options. If your activated instrument is lost or stolen, using TSshield you can simply send a coded signal to the instrument and disable it – virtually anywhere in the world!

TSshield also notifies you of updates like new firmware right on the instrument! When available, a notification is sent electronically. The next time you power on the instrument you’re notified on the display. There’s even an online account that maintains an operational history of your instrument including error codes for your convenience and Technical Support reference if necessary.
