You want to work with a positive centering? You want to cover large distances? Due to the tripod adapter with claw system, you can use your reference spheres (200mm/7.9 in diameter) wherever you can install a tripod. A positive centering is ensured with this adapter. The center of the reference sphere has a height of 196mm/7.7 in and, thus, is exactly located on the tilting axis height of many total stations (e. g. Leica, Trimble).

Product characteristics:
  • tripod adapter suitable for all claw systems
  • dimensions: 12cm/4.7 in height; 8cm/3.1 in diameter
  • adapter with M8 thread for screwing the reference sphere in tight
  • The center of a fixed reference sphere (200mm/7.9 in) is located in the height of the vertical axis and the tilting axis of all total stations with a tilting axis height of 196mm/7.7 in (e. g. Leica, Trimble).
  • Due to this position, the sphere's center can be determined tachymetrical easily by replacing the adapter by a prism.

Designated use:

  • positive centering of your reference sphere on a tripod by using a claw system
  • Connect the fixed points marked on the ground with your laser scanning project by rigging up a tripod on a fixed point and clamping the tripod adapter into your tripod.

Scope of application:

  • working with positive centering
  • creating reference points using fixed points on the ground by means of surveying tripod and tripod adapter with claw system
  • use of 200mm/7.9 in sphere allows the reference sphere's visibility even at a great distance to the scanner
  • placing reference spheres in natural surroundings (woods and meadows) without suitable magnetic ground
