    LIVERMORE, Calif., USA/ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, The Netherlands - March 7, 2017 - Topcon Positioning Group announces the addition of advanced connectivity options to its DS-200i direct aiming imaging station. The DS-200i, now with Wi-Fi access, provides real-time, touchscreen video and photo imaging to capture measured positions.

    "The ultra-wide 5 MP on-board camera provides photo documentation in the field and can now transmit live video using either LongLinkTM or high-speed WLAN as an access point, which allows the FC-5000 or Windows 10 tablets to easily connect," said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products.

    "The addition of Wi-Fi connectivity offers convenience to the powerful video capabilities of the DS-200i. The system allows for non-prism measurements to be aimed and measured to remote objects - saving time without having to return to the tripod," Kerwin said. "The live video allows a remote user to know exactly what is being measured."

    Additional standard features include Hybrid Positioning functionality, Xpointing technology for quick and reliable prism acquisition, TSshieldTM telematics security and maintenance technology, and a rating of IP65 for water-resistant construction.
