 Achieve exceptional track surveying performance with up to 2,500 m/h and enjoy cost savings of over 80% as compared to the traditional sighting method!

Using the reliable long chord method which has already proven its practicability in the Amberg Tamping VMS 3000, the inner track geometry and the absolute position are determined in a single operation. And correction data are available in real-time.

The combination of tacheometry and automatic tripod allow fully automatic control point surveying without user interaction. In combination with the field-proven two-trolley mode, this allows maximum accuracy and enormous track surveying performance to be achieved.

For shorter measuring sections, such as turnouts, multi-track sections or for projects with brief track access windows, the total station can be placed on a tripod and the system can be operated in the so-called tripod mode.

The ability to expand from one to two completely independent individual systems rounds out the multifaceted application possibilities of this system perfectly.
