Carlson CR+ Robotic Total Station

Carlson CR+ Robotic Total Station

Manufacturer: | Category:

The Carlson CR+ series of robotic total stations from Carlson Software provide a choice of 1 inch, 2 inch and 5 inch angular resolutions to match the application requirements.



The Carlson CR+ series of robotic total stations from Carlson Software include the CR1+, CR2+ and CR5+. All models feature the same technologies for a seamless user experience.

CR+ total stations are combined with SurvCE or SurvPC on a field computer to access the full range of Carlson survey features for efficiency and automation in a familiar environment. In addition, users have the option for installing SurvCE Basic on board for operation with the instrument only. Customers benefit from technical support for both the robotic total station and SurvCE or SurvPC from one company.

CR+ robotic total stations are used in a wide range of applications requiring precise angle and distance measurements such as surveying, engineering and construction.

The advanced positioning technology of STReAM360, X-motion hybrid drives & accXess EDM Technology incorporated in Carlson’s super reliable CR2+ and CR5+ robotic total stations provides the most efficient way to survey.

Get all you need for your daily work with Carlson SurvCE data collection software on the Carlson CR2+ and CR5+ robotic total stations – these instruments are quick to set up and have easy-to-use functions that simplify the entire process even more.
