Are you running the "Check and Adjust" routine on a regular basis?
To measure with high precision and reliability, total stations must fulfill specific accuracy requirements. To be sure that a total station fulfills these requirements at any time, it has to be re-calibrated from time to time. With the Check & Adjust tool every Leica total station and MultiStation can be easily "field-calibrated" by the user. There are routines for SmartWorx Viva, FlexLine and Captivate total stations.
The video below from Leica Geosystems will show why it is important and walk through the routine on a Captivate total station.
We suggest running check and adjust on a 3 or 6 month schedule. You may also want to run it at the start of certain projects where the precision is more critical. For more tips, tricks and advice, please follow me on LinkedIn as there will be weekly posts with a variety of different topics. If you have any ideas, please feel free to email or call me to discuss.
Our hope is that these type of posts will provide value and insight to help your company, crews, staff, etc. gain more knowledge and help build the bottom line.
