Chapter 2: Moving to a smaller, rugged solution
Moving to a smaller, rugged solution
An issue facing Power Grid was the difficulty of bringing total stations and theodolites. Irreplaceable for certain tasks, these instruments are used for the more routine and repetitive measurements.
Power Grid wouldn’t compromise on accuracy. So, the firm would go through the lengthy process of bringing a surveyor out whenever it needed measurements. That’s until the DISTO™ S910 laser distance metre came onto the scene.
The S910 was a game changer for Power Grid’s requirements. The S910 enables remote point-to-point measurements with its integrated bi-axial pivot. It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Employees stand in one spot
2. Activate the point finder camera
3. Measure the tie distance between elements.
