moving edm to new station

moving edm to new station

moving edm to new station

I have a topcon gts-212 edm and would like to know how to set up a new station. I can set get a foresight then move the edm to this new point and put the new coordinates into the 'occupied point' but to reset the N angle I have to use trig. Is there a way of backsighting to the previous point and then getting the machine to do this automatically?
Any help would be appreciated

RE: moving edm to new station


All Topcon’s have set out programmes inbuilt. Called Layout.

Use the “Backsite” (F2) command in “Layout”

But first you have to set up a file in “memory manager” then input you points.
You able to recall these points in “Layout”.

Did you not get a hand book with your EDM?
