The Topcon GB & Ireland team will be displaying the latest technology to aid smarter working on site at the Executive Hire Show (8th-9th February at Ricoh Arena, Coventry), as well as showcasing how today’s construction professionals can safeguard equipment from theft on site.

On the stand will be Topcon’s most recently launched Elite Survey Suite

On the stand will be Topcon’s most recently launched Elite Survey Suite, a system combining three cutting-edge survey products with a single software solution – designed to give professionals a powerful and integrated surveying workflow. The Suite includes Topcon’s new GT series of robotic total stations, HiPer HR hybrid GNSS receiver, FC-5000 field controller and the latest MAGNET 4.0 software programme that seamlessly links together the different stages of the workflow.

Topcon’s unmanned aerial system, the Falcon 8, will also be on the stand. With its rotary-wing system and robust design, it is designed to tackle inspection and survey tasks in challenging environments. The Falcon 8 is even able to compensate for high winds, reducing the need for pilot corrections. The technology is designed to be straightforward to use with a user-friendly control system, as well as an autopilot.

The positioning partner will also be showcasing its security software, TSshield. With its remote locking functionality as well as locating technology, TSshield helps protect devices from theft, an issue that affects two out of five surveyors in the UK.

Topcon’s technology experts will be available to give advice and information on all the products on display

Nic Voller, national accounts at Topcon GB & Ireland, commented: “With almost 2,000 visitors attending, the Executive Hire Show is the perfect stage to raise awareness of the importance of protecting kit on site.

“A recent survey by Topcon revealed that less than a quarter of surveyors take the precaution of ID tagging, and less than one in five use remote locking despite the average cost of replacing stolen equipment on a job totalling over £10,000.

“Dependant on GPS coverage, security software like TSshield can locate stolen equipment within 100meters or less anywhere on the planet. Our TSshield technology has even located instruments stolen in the UK as far afield as an Island in the Indian Ocean and Central America. Widespread adoption of this technology would be a serious deterrent to thieves of equipment, decreasing re-sale value for stolen equipment.”

Topcon’s technology experts will be available to give advice and information on all the products on display including lasers, levels, total stations, GNSS receivers and 3D laser scanners. Visitors can also find out about Topcon’s industry leading warranty offers, including a five year guarantee on all lasers.

The Executive Hire Show takes place on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is now open – and it’s FREE!  http://executivehireshow.co.uk/register.html
