Millimetre GPS is an exclusive Topcon technology that allows traditional GPS measurement and machine-control systems to improve its vertical accuracy by up to 400%. The latest laser transmitter delivers enhanced performance and usability, according to Topcon.

Murray Lodge, Topcon senior vice president and general manager of its construction business unit, said the LZ-T5 uses patented zone-beam laser technology to continuously provide high-accuracy elevation information to improve GNSS positioning.

“When Topcon introduced Millimetre GPS technology a decade ago, we expanded the advantages of GPS technology into high-precision applications and created an economical option for our 3-D machine control customers to further increase their productivity,” he said.

The LZ-T5 incorporates new design and operational technology that enhance its performance in fluctuating temperatures and adverse weather conditions, Lodge said.

“Additionally the housing has been made more user-friendly with twin ergonomic handles to allow for easier carrying and mounting, and the battery-life has been extended to last up to 20% longer,” said Lodge.
