The most important criterion for a good tripod is its stability, quite explicitly, the torsional rigidity. With that, a very valuable, but not the only, argument for the original tripod from Leica Geosystems has been named. Other substantial benefits are the height stability under load and the minimal horizontal drift. Also not to be underestimated are advantages such as long life, optimal vibration dampening, water resistance, outstanding behaviour in solar radiation and their weight in relation to load-bearing capacity.
Similarly to the stability of the tripod, that of the tribrach is a significant factor in measurement accuracy. The torsional rigidity, the most important criterion of a tribrach, is constantly controlled and tested during its production. The maintenance-free foot screws of the Leica Geosystems tribrach provide movement that is always smooth and free of play, even after years of use. The precise alignment of the support area to the base plate of the instrument assures extremely accurate forced centring. The optical plummet is so robust that the need for adjustment during the entire lifetime of the tribrach is practically unnecessary. Its construction predestines the tribrach for all applications, including extreme temperatures and high dust and humidity.
The range of a prism results from, among other things, its coating and the glass geometry. A number of Original prisms from Leica Geosystems have a special coating on the reflective surfaces – the Anti-Reflex Coating, and a copper coating on the reverse side. Without these, the range of distance measuring, ATR and Powersearch would be reduced by up to 30%. The glass dimensions, the position in the holder and with it the areal orientation, are important for measuring accuracy. Leica Geosystems prisms are manufactured from glass of the highest quality and furnished with optical coatings so that even under the most extreme environmental conditions, a long lifetime and maximum range of the highest accuracy can be achieved.
Batteries and chargers
At first glance, chargers and batteries do not seem to be especially important accessories. Perhaps not ever when it is essential that the user must pay attention to quality or origin. Experience shows the opposite. Instruments and their electronics react sensitively and need a reliable power supply in all environmental conditions. Batteries and chargers are also exposed to these conditions – some will function, others might and some not for long or not at all, under certain conditions. That is why the quality and efficiency of the Originals also counts for batteries and chargers.
Due to the use of materials such as carbon and aluminium, the original GNSS poles from Leica Geosystems offer an optimal balance of weight, stability and longevity. According to series and model, they are available either with a tip made of Widia®, an extremely hard carbide material, or with interchangeable tips. Their construction allows simple handling with high application steadiness.
