360° green laser line projection for multi-directional alignment – perfect for large and bright environments. The laser’s vertical lines are easily adjusted once the plumb point (cross-section of two vertical lines), which is located outside the device, is set.
PRECISION ALIGNMENT GREEN MULTI LINE LASER
3×360° HIGHLY VISIBLE, GREEN LASER LINES
Three, ultra-strong 360° thin, crisp and clearly visible green laser lines are ideal for bright environments and large work environments as green laser lines are up to four times more visible to the human eye if compared to red lasers.
EASY SET-UP AND POSITIONING
The vertical laser lines projected to walls and ceilings are easily adjusted once the plumb point is set. The integrated base of this line laser allows you to position the cross section (plumb point) of the two vertical laser lines where it is required and you then can adjust the position of these lines by ± 10° while keeping the position of the plumb point.
The triple power concept assures an uninterrupted workflow of any layout tasks. Rechargeable Li-Ion batteries last for up to 11 hours of continuous operation. To further increase the operating time, the laser line strength is adjustable (100/75/50 percent) which has the added benefit of thinner laser lines. Alternatively, Alkaline batteries or a charger can be used.
Green laser lines achieve a working range of up to 70 meters / 230 feet in diameter, making it perfect for larger rooms and bright environments. The maximum operating distance can be extended up to 140 meters / 460 feet by using the RGR200 laser receiver.
Precision adjustment handles, and the laser’s eccentric base allow the laser lines to rotate by ± 10° around the plumb point while the line-laser keeps its position; allowing for quick and precise setup for any alignment, plumbing, levelling or squaring tasks.
The reason why surveying professionals are predestined to lead the way in deformation monitoring is that the primary field tool of land surveying, the total station, is also one of the best and most flexible monitoring sensors. Every surveying service provider company owns a total station – and this is all that is needed to start growing your business with monitoring.
In simple words, monitoring is nothing more than repeatedly surveying the same object and comparing the results – it is something every surveyor has already done before, at least to a certain degree.
This blog will explain which total stations can be used for monitoring and how.
The Leica TS16 total station is a golden standard among surveying professionals and a great example of a total station that can effortlessly be utilised for monitoring purposes. Repeated measurements of the same target are easily completed manually, and displacements (changes in position between the measurements) can be calculated using simple tools like Microsoft Excel.
However, the advantage of owning an automated total station also includes the possibility to automate measurements using Leica Captivate apps. The TPS Monitoring Application in Captivate is designed to aid the surveyors by automatically executing their predefined measurement plan. The app also tremendously increases productivity and quality assurance due to a very systematic and repeatable workflow with included data quality checks. When combined with a cloud visualisation platform, the measured data is presented professionally and can be reached from any mobile device while still standing next to the instrument.
Which other Leica Geosystems surveying total station (TS) can be used for monitoring? Basically, any that fulfils the project accuracy requirements. The Comparison Chart of the Leica Geosystems total station portfolio gives a clear overview of the most important specifications. Manual total stations mean working within manual workflows, whereas the automation capability of a total station offer more scalability and an easier transition to automated monitoring. Another example of a surveying total station often being used in monitoring is the Leica Nova TS60, the paragon among surveying total stations.

What distinguishes monitoring total stations (TM) from surveying instruments (TS) is that they are specifically built for the 24/7 automatic monitoring purpose. Since 2009 Leica Geosystems has a dedicated monitoring total station portfolio, starting with Leica TM30, its very popular successor Leica Nova TM50 and the recently released monitoring crown jewel, Leica Nova TM60.
Once configured and combined with monitoring software, monitoring total stations can perform measurements continuously and without any human involvement. The most important prerequisites are:
The TM60 is the world’s first self-learning monitoring total station using the ATRplus (automatic target recognition) technology. It enables advanced automation of long-range prism measurements up to 3,000 m with an angular accuracy of 0.5″. Additionally, it is equipped with monitoring-specific features like AutoLearn, which allows the instrument to automatically search, aim and measure prisms remotely, hence significantly simplifying and accelerating the monitoring project configuration.

Due to different reasons, it’s often impossible to mount the prisms in an area to be monitored, e.g. historic buildings, roads, or protected areas. In the past, these areas were reachable only with reflectorless measurements. Since the release of the world’s first MultiStation in 2013, scanning has been a part of the Leica Geosystems monitoring solution. The Leica Nova MS60 is doubtlessly a flagship and an absolute allrounder for surveying professionals.
Thanks to its scanning capabilities, a single reflectorless measurement is replaced by hundreds or thousands of them in the scanned area. The same area gets scanned repeatedly following the defined measurement schedule. Each scan is compared to the reference scan, and the deformation is calculated. Leica GeoMoS software automatically performs this procedure. The results are visualised as a heat map, graph or table, displaying point cloud statistical values of median deformation, maximum deformation and deformation volume.
The MS60 brings the flexibility of using the instrument both for prism measurements and scanning. A high-resolution dual-camera imaging system automatically captures images with each scan, allowing users to have complete information for every epoch.
Result analysis from dozens of installations worldwide shows that the MS60, when combined with our GeoMoS solution, delivers 1 to 2 mm level accuracy within 100 to 150 m distances, while also ensuring extreme reliability and repeatability of the data. This is essentially the same level of accuracy expected with prism monitoring under the same conditions.

Cities are growing, construction has never been faster, and people and equipment’s safety has never been more critical. The demand for deformation monitoring is continuously growing – adding it to your company’s service offering has a huge potential for growing your surveying business.
