DS series

Leverage The Possibilities

Full-featured robotic system combines imaging and remote connectivity

Product Info


The DS series knows no boundaries, with a far reaching 600m communications distance, the highest environmental rating, and a powerful EDM capable of returning measurements to any surface, out to 1000m. Drive the same instrument in remote control robotic mode for all the command you need as a single operator. Then as site conditions dictate, just switch to GNSS positioning with Hybrid Technology from Topcon. The possibilities are endless...

  • Confident, constant prism tracking
  • Remote control with long reach communication
  • TSshield™ web services for streamlined maintenance and security
  • Rugged IP65 environment rating
  • Now available for Topcon's Hybrid Positioning Technology


With proven versatility the DS series is an example of leading technology, with full video and imaging capabilities for everyday workflows. Designed to remain locked on a prism even in rigorous conditions, the DS series is an ideal single-operator robotic solution that keeps pace as project sites change. You have the option of adding our small, rugged HiPer SR receiver in Hybrid sessions to maintain peak production.
