Merges high-speed 3D scanning, precision total station measurement, enhanced Trimble Vision and a green focusable laser pointer — all tied together with familiar field and office workflows for end-to-end efficiency that changes the way you work  - TThe Trimble® SX12 Scanning Total Station is the one instrument you need to handle any survey project by integrating surveying, imaging and 3D scanning capabilities into your everyday workflow. This powerful, versatile solution is capable of collecting any combination of high-density 3D scan data, enhanced Trimble VISION imaging, and high-accuracy total station data, allowing you to capture exactly what you need, saving you time and money on every job. 

Key features of the Trimble SX12:

  • Achieve both high-speed scanning and ultra-accurate measurements in a single instrument using 3DM with Lightning™ technology.

  • Move fluidly between total station functionality, scanning, and image capture all in one tool.

  • Get fast, flawless hi-res captures with a high-resolution camera system and enhanced Trimble VISION.

  • Trust MagDrive™ and Autolock® technologies for smooth, stable operation.
