Topcon Hybrid Positioning System

Hybrid Positioning™ technology is the ability to use both GNSS positioning and optical positioning data at the same time, in ways that improve field measurement efficiency.

The addition of Magnet Field Hybrid Positioning Software creates an intuitive, easy to use solution that performs faster in the field than stand-alone robotic systems, with more versatility than RTK-only solutions.

Hybrid Positioning reduces the need for traversing and multiple tripod set ups allowing you to get the job done a lot faster and smarter.

Hybrid Positioning is available with mostly all Topcon Robotic Total Stations and GNSS Receivers, with packages to suit all projects and budgets.

The most recent Hybrid Positioning System consists of the Topcon GT Series Robotic Total Station, HiPer HR GNSS Receiver and FC-5000 Field Computer.

Topcon has revolutionized the industry by providing GNSS receivers that utilize the most advanced signal processing and robust performance in difficult environments. Additionally, Topcon’s optical total station technology of advanced tracking and powerful EDM performance is industry leading. These two hardware solutions, plus MAGNET Field software, come together to make Hybrid Positioning technology.

Hybrid Positioning simply requires an incoming position from a GNSS receiver. This receiver can be a local RTK base and rover combination, a Magnet Relay Session, or while working within a hosted GNSS reference station network.

New Functionalities Include:

Hybrid Lock

The Hybrid Lock function turns the instrument toward the prism location so that the user can quickly regain lock and tracking. Hybrid Locks allow the user to record more measurements and provides the ultimate in prism reacquisition.

Hybrid Switch

Hybrid Switch provides the measurement professional with a fast change between GPS measurements and optical total station measurements. The workflow provides the customer with a faster workflow with less setup of the total station over points. By using the Magnet software, the user can easily switch with one push of a button.

Hybrid Resection

Hybrid Resection lets the user visit points with RTK coordinates for control while having the Robotic instrument in a safe location. Workflow provides the user with Geodetic coordinates to geo-reference the jobsite. This can be achieved fast for any job site setup.
