Trimble has announced the latest addition to its portfolio of robotic total stations – the Trimble Ri. The new instrument’s flexibility and upgradeability makes high-end total station technology more accessible and sets a new scalability standard for use across the construction industry, the company said.
Offered in multiple configurations to meet several workflows, the Trimble Ri is aimed at MEP, concrete, steel and general contractors. The base units can be scaled remotely via annual subscription licensing packages and software customization.
Trimble said the Trimble Ri is built on the company’s decades of field-proven experience developing and producing robotic total stations. Easy to operate with extended layout capabilities, the total station provides longer laser range, focusable EDM, eye-safe laser pointer and improved target tracking. Leveraging Trimble FieldLink software on a tablet or FieldLink MR on a Trimble XR10 for Mixed Reality, users can control and automate their workflow with improved accuracy and visibility. With Trimble VISION technology, integrated digital cameras, the instrument can be controlled from anywhere on the jobsite and allows for quick and accurate target detection and lock. In addition, the self-calibration feature performs automatic calibrations as required and reduces the need to send the total station in for service.
“The new Trimble Ri sets a new standard for optical positioning solutions for the construction field worker,” said Martin Holmgren, general manager, Trimble Building Construction. “To date, no other supplier has introduced this type of robotic total station flexibility in the market. It is an exciting way for our customers to purchase and utilize the solution, which can be more aligned with their project-based business needs.”
The company said the Trimble Ri Total Station is now available worldwide through the company’s building construction distribution channels.
