Nikon-Trimble Introduces New Nikon Nivo Total Station Series

Nikon-Trimble Co., Ltd. introduced today the Nikon Nivo
Series — a new range of compact, high-precision, Bluetooth-capable
mechanical total stations. Each new model in the Nikon Nivo C and Nivo
M Series offers superior Nikon quality optics, performance and
reliability, making them ideal for a variety of surveying applications.
In addition, Nikon-Trimble introduced the Nikon DTM-322, an economic,
prism-based 5" total station that provides a strong value proposition
in terms of price performance.

The announcement was made at the Nikon – Spectra
Precision Worldwide Distribution Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. The
Nikon Nivo Series and Nikon DTM-322 will be showcased in Karlsruhe,
Germany, at INTERGEO 2009, the world’s largest conference on geodesy,
geoinformatics and land management.

"The new Nivo total stations are the next generation of
Nikon surveying solutions and reflect the dependability and reliability
represented by the Nikon name," said Frank Dorenkamp, general manager
of Nikon – Spectra Precision survey brands. "The Nivo Series provides
surveyors with valuable positioning tools to conduct topographic data
collection, stakeout or layout jobs, cadastral boundary surveys and
more. With an ultra-modern design and compact form factor, the total
stations are lightweight, weighing only 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs.)."

The Nikon Nivo products offer a distance measurement
accuracy of up to +/-(2 + 2 ppm x D) mm. The Nikon total stations
provide a long-distance reflectorless measurement range of 300 meters
(1,000 ft.), reducing the need for multiple set-ups. In addition, the
Nikon Nivo Series includes a coaxial laser pointer to assist with
target identification and reduce aiming time. The series includes
Bluetooth capability to support external communications in the field
and a laser plummet for precise product centering.

Featuring an alphanumeric keyboard with large
user-definable keys, the Nivo Series provides fast, one-touch access to
the functions that are used the most. With this functionality, survey
tasks can be performed more quickly and efficiently, allowing surveyors
to increase productivity in the field. Meeting IP66 standards with
water and dust-proof protection, the Nikon Nivo Series is rugged and
can operate in virtually all types of weather. Each product supports
two interchangeable, onboard batteries that provide up to 62 hours of
continuous measurements.

Nikon Nivo C Series

The Nivo C Series features a Windows CE touchscreen interface.
Field application software functions are supported by Spectra
Precision Survey Pro field software for surveying and
construction measurement needs. Supporting both prism-based and
reflectorless technologies, the distance measurements are fast and
flexible. All Nivo C Series feature a dual-face display for efficient
high-precision angle and distance measurements, cable-free Bluetooth
connections to external data collectors, plus support for USB memory
sticks, and a high-speed data transfer port. The Nivo C Series is
available in 2", 3" and 5" models to meet specific accuracy needs.

Nikon Nivo M Series

The Nivo M Series uses the proven Nikon field user interface that is
intuitive and easy to learn and use. Supporting both prism-based and
reflectorless technologies, the distance measurements are fast and
flexible. The MSR1 & MSR2 keys can be used to separately configure
different prism or reflectorless measurement parameters, eliminating
time switching between measurement modes. The Nivo M Series field user
interface highlights include: a complete set of CoGo and survey
stakeout functions, simple data management of files, and quick field
coding for convenient one-button data collection of point features and
raw target data. The series is available in 2", 3" and 5" models to
meet specific accuracy needs.

The new Nikon Nivo M Series is expected to be available
in September 2009 and the Nivo C Series is expected to be available in
the fourth quarter of 2009 through Nikon – Spectra Precision

Nikon DTM-322

In addition to the Nikon Nivo Series, Nikon-Trimble introduced the
Nikon DTM-322. The Nikon DTM-322 is an economic, versatile, prism-based
5" total station. Nikon’s legendary optics effectively allow in more
light to give brighter, clearer images even in low-visibility
conditions typical in the field. The Nikon DTM-322 is among the fastest
total stations in its class.

The Nikon DTM-322 is expected to be available in September 2009.
