New Offset Surveys

New Offset Surveys
Baum Station is an innovative new surveying instrument. The one of a kind reticle of Baum Station, ” Baum” captures objects with its concentric scale marks. Using Baum Station enables you to measure objects which had not been previously measureble. Baum Station provides significant help with maintenance and management.

Measurable Objects

Point OffsetPoint Offset
Point Offset
Point offset is used for obtaining coordinates on tips of sharp objects such as lightning conductors or antennas.
With conventional method, laser doesn’t reflect from tips and it is impossible to perform measurement of such structures.
Line OffsetLine Offset
Line Offset
Line offset is used for obtaining unknown coordinates on pile. If one measures line direction and extends it, one can get the coordinates of a point which needed to be known.
Plane OffsetPlane Offset
Plane Offset
Plane offset is used for obtaining coordinates of edges and corners of the walls. With conventional method, laser may slip off and do not reflect from the very edge of the tip and it is impossible to measure.
Pile OffsetPile Offset
Radius Offset
Radius offset is used for obtaining coordinates of pile’s central point. With Baum Station, it becomes possible, just by measuring one point on the central line on the pile’s surface, and by offsetting coordinates of the point to the center point of pile for radius. Additionally, if one does not know the radius of pile and if radius of the pile is required, Baum Station can calculate the radius.
Pile OffsetPile Offset
Pile Offset
Pile offset is used for obtaining coordinates of pile’s central axis. With Baum Station, it becomes possible, just by measuring two points on the central line on the pile’s surface. Additionally, if one does not know the radius of pile and if radius of the pile is required, Baum Station can calculate the radius.
Sphere OffsetSphere Offset
Sphere Offset
Sphere offset is used for obtaining coordinates of sphere’s center. Sphere offset also requires the radius of sphere. Using this function of Baum Station,3D measurements with spheres get more accurate and more efficient than with conventional method.

Mechanism

“The Baum” Reticle

By replacing the reticles, total station can measure objects which it previously could not.

The one-of-a-kind reticle of the Baum Station, the Baum has concentric circles in addition to conventional cross-hairs.
The ratio of the width of each circle to the distance between the instrument and the target is 1:1000 (e.g. A space appears as 1mm at a distance of 1 meter). The Baum Station captures objects with the circles of the Baum. It enables accurate measurement of objects which had not been previously measurable (such as cylindrical structures), which usually don’t have a mark on which to aim cross-hairs, and the corners and pointed parts of structures, which the laser beam would pass through. The Baum raises the potential of total stations to their fullest.

A space of each circle appears 1/1000 of the distance.

Navigation System for Pile Driver

sub_k

The pile driving navigation system enables easily understandable and highly precise pile driving, all navigation is performed from the operator’s point of view.
Measurement data can be stored digitally, which is useful for keeping construction records.

After the Baum Station measures two points on the center of the pile, the application system instantly calculates the tilt and position of the pile based on the reference side of the piling machine which has been registered in the PDA. The application system quantifies the tilt and depth of the pile and the correction amount for the driving position, and then shows the operator the correct position by displaying it from their viewpoint.
There is no need to stop the operation, and only one instrument is needed – which minimizes labor and costs.
Additionally, task accuracy is dramatically increased because the correction amount is showed in real time and corrections can be made quickly and accurately .
