Reflectorless Total Station (CX 60 Series)



CX 60 Series Reflectorless Total Station

The Sokkia CX-60 Series Reflectorless Total Station allows construction professionals to measure distances of up to 1,148 feet without a prism. Maximize the distance measuring range up to 13,120 feet by using a single prism and get highly accurate results, even in dangerous or difficult to reach locations. Ideal for entry-level site layout and surveying, this Sokkia total station also features dual-axis compensation which automatically corrects the vertical and horizontal angle for miss-leveling error.

Featuring a 25-key pad and trigger key, the Sokkia CX-60 enables surveyors to quickly take a series of measurements without looking away from the telescope. It also has an integrated optical plummet and laser pointer that provides both fast and precise aiming. 

With an IP66 waterproof casing, the Sokkia CX 60 reflectorless total station can withstand extreme weather conditions on the job site. In addition, it has a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 15 hours and an onboard surveying software capable of storing 10,000 points. 

The Sokkia CX-60 Series Reflectorless Total Station comes in two angle accuracies – two seconds and five seconds.
