Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, has introduced its Leica iCON gps 160 construction smart antenna. Designed to provide a versatile solution for various applications, it can be used as a base station or as a rover or for machine guidance. The 160 is particularly suited to complex construction environments with different GNSS requirements with its ability to switch between different applications at a users’ fingertips. Besides checking grade, cut and fill, stakeout points and lines, users can also benefit from using this solution for basic-level GNSS machine guidance.
The antenna comes with an integrated colour display, a user-friendly interface, smart setup wizards and an intuitive construction-specific workflow to help contractors get the most out of the unit. Use of the latest GNSS and communication technologies improve data reception, with an aim for increased productivity and efficiency. An optional tilt feature allows users to measure and stakeout points with a tilted pole, which saves time and extends the measurement possibilities on any construction site.
