Trimble RTS573

The Trimble RTS573 is a robotic total station designed for general and specialty contractors who require quality, accuracy and optimum field performance.

The Trimble RTS Series Robotic Total Stations help contractors perform layout tasks significantly more efficiently than with conventional mechanical systems for residential and building construction. Designed specifically for concrete, MEP, and general construction contractors, the Trimble RTS Series Robotic Total Stations offer construction-specific functionality and one-person operation ease so you can perform all jobsite layout and measurement tasks for maximum flexibility and cost savings.

Accuracy for everyday layout tasks

For Every Application

  • The Trimble RTS573 streamlines layout of curbing, retaining walls, landscape, grade checks, concrete forms, anchor bolts, or utilities.
  • Versatile enough for light topographic projects and as-built data collection, the RTS573 can handle almost any challenge on the job site.

Unsurpassed Total Station Technology

  • Trimble MagDrive Servo Technology provides for exceptional speed and accuracy with smooth, silent operation.
  • Trimble SurePoint Technology ensures accurate measurements by automatically correcting for unwanted movement due to wind, sinkage, and other factors.
  • Trimble MultiTrack technology locks on and tracks passive prisms for control measurements and active targets for dynamic measurement, stakeout and grade control.

Built for Construction

  • Optimal speed, accuracy and reliability through measurement solution technology.
  • Trimble DR Plus EDM gives flexibility to tackle the most demanding projects through visually mark points, with high precision, using the Class 2 Laser Pointer.
  • The Automatic Servo Focus sets the optical focus for quick manual aiming when laying out points in DR mode.
  • Combined with Trimble Field Link software running on the Trimble Field Tablet, you are able to optimize your accuracy and productivity.
