Trimble RTS873

The Trimble RTS873 is a robotic total station designed for general and specialty contractors who require quality, accuracy and optimum field performance.

The Trimble RTS873 includes a proprietary feature that is a Specialty Contractors game changer, a focused green beam laser.  The focused green beam laser marks the exact location with a powerful and very visible laser spot. This in conjunction with Trimble’s Visual Layout to correct elevations on non-level floors ensures fast and precise layout. The RTS873 also has Trimble VISION, an integrated camera in the robotic total station that provides a “through the telescope view” remotely via the Trimble Tablet and Trimble Field Link.

Fast, accurate, reliable technology

Advance Technology for Construction Layout

  • With it’s bright, autofocusing green laser, the RTS873 heightens layout precision on the jobsite.
  • 100% Robotic Operation Trimble VISION provides you with the ability to direct layout with live video images on the Trimble Field Tablet, maximizing your command of the job.
  • Visual Verification provides an accurate documentation of the design and field image that is displayed within the Trimble Field Link software, job data including points and linework are overlaid on the camera image.

Green Laser Pointer

  • Improve layout accuracy and speed of DR layout.
  • The RTS873 autofocusing green beam optimizes visibility of placement points at all distances.

Uneven Surface Correction

  • Combined with Trimble Field Link running on the tablet, this system will compensate for uneven floors and ceilings to ensure positioning accuracy.

Built for Construction

  • Optimal speed, accuracy and reliability through measurement solution technology.
  • Combine the Trimble DR HP Precision EDM with Trimble VISION and you have the flexibility to tackle the most demanding projects.
  • 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.
