Motor Solutions for Land Surveying

Challenge

Land surveying total stations utilize an electro-optical distance metering method, emitting a laser beam to a target and detecting light reflected off the target. Motion solutions play an integral role in precisely controlling the beam strength and then filtering reflected light. Outdoor working conditions call for battery-operated motion systems to operate in harsh environments for extended periods of time.

Portescap coreless motors offer the desired power density in the smallest envelope size and deliver maximum efficiency for long operation cycles.
