Robotic Total Stations

Robotic total stations eliminate the need for pulling tape and significantly increase the speed and precision of layout and measurement. These are intuitive, one–person instruments that can be set up anywhere on the jobsite to perform all collection and marking tasks. Contractors have the ability to quickly and easily layout and collect field points using robotic interaction. Models are designed specifically for general contractors, concrete contractors, fabricators, erectors, installers, and MEP contractors.

These tools will significantly increase your construction efficiency. Let us show you how. Check out the options below and

The RPT600 Rapid Positioning System makes layout and measurement very easy yet precise. Simply set it on the jobsite and press the green button. The instrument levels and locates itself. It has no eyepiece because Trimble VISION shows you what the instrument sees while you control it remotely with a tablet computer. Work directly from a model or plan using Trimble Field Link and generate reports for tracking and compliance. Layout points and measure distances quickly and accurately with the included prism or the highly visible green laser. Your team can layout complex floors, walls, ceilings, decking, forms, and concrete with simplicity and precision while saving time and eliminating rework.

Trimble’s RTS Series of Robotic Total Stations

Trimble’s RTS Series of robotic total stations use the latest technology to increase efficiency, accuracy, and simplicity for one-person layout and measurement. Complicated layouts are made simple and precise using a target and/or lasers for visual layout. Models are designed specifically for concrete, steel, framing, drywall, MEP, and general contractors for construction-specific operation. One instrument can perform all jobsite layout and measurement tasks for maximum flexibility and cost savings.


➢ MultiTrack technology will only track your target while offering a choice between and active and passive tracking.
➢ SurePoint technology automatically corrects for unwanted movement due to wind, sinkage, and other factors.
➢ Uneven Surface Correction compensates for uneven floors and ceilings to ensure precise positioning.
➢ Automatic Servo Focus on the Class 2 Laser visually lays out points quickly with high precision.
➢ MagDrive Servo technology provides exceptional speed and accuracy with smooth, silent operation.



The RTS573 Robotic Total Station helps contractors improve efficiency and accuracy for common layout tasks. It streamlines the layout of concrete forms, walls, anchor bolts, curbing, retaining walls, landscape, grade checks, and utilities. The RTS573 offers 3″ angular accuracy for precise field performance. It has a 30x telescope for visual point location. It also has an extended range EDM for site distance measurements up to a mile. The optical plummet is located directly on the instrument. Remotely control the robot to quickly locate your target using Track-Light technology.


The RTS673 offers the benefits of the RTS573 while replacing the extended range EDM with a high precision EDM that can be used for measurement and laser/visual layout.


The RTS773 offers the benefits of the RTS673 and adds an integrated digital camera that provides a “through the telescope view” directly on the remote tablet controller. Trimble VISION gives users the ability to view, photograph, and document actual jobsite conditions for compliance and reporting issues in the field. The design job data, including points and linework, are overlaid on the camera image to provide visual verification and the option for photo documentation of conditions in the field. The optical plummet is located directly on the tribrach. You can also locate your target using the camera, eliminating the need for the track lights. 


The RTS873 offers the benefits of the RTS773 while fitting a Class 2, easy-to-see green laser into the telescope’s eyepiece. The auto focus capability of the telescope tightens the laser’s divergence for the highest available precision layout and measurement in DR (Direct Reflex) mode. The RTS873 is ideal for interior contractors.
