Total Station Adjustments - Calibrations and Collimations

Vectors EDU walks you through the field calibrations on your S-Series Total Stations.

Compensator Calibrations- Should be done first thing in the morning or when setting up on-site and then again in the afternoon after breaking down and setting back up after lunch.

HA/VA Collimation and Trunnion Axis Tilt- Should technically be performed every 18 deg temperature change, elevation change + or - 1,640 feet, or when high precision is desired.

Auto-Lock Calibrations- Should be performed once a month or before traverses. We also recommend this calibration be performed at a distance the same length or longer than your furthest shot of the day or on your job site.
