  7. 7. FEATURES( Light in weight, highly accurate total station)· The total weight of the instrument is 4.8 kg including the handle and battery. For total station operations, all keys on the keyboard can be used for two or more functions.(Automatic tilt compensation of vertical angles)· The tilt angle of the vertical axis is measured by an internal sensor. The vertical angle value can be automatically compen- sated for this tilt angle and the compensated value displayed.(Instrument parameter settings stored in memory)· The SET6 has an internal memory which stores the instrument parameter settings. The parameter settings can be changed by key operation and the new settings are memorized even after power off.( Rechargeable battery )· The SET6 is powered by a rechargeable battery. For continuous angle measurement, a fully-charged battery supplies power for 17 hours, and for continuous angle and distance measurement, the battery will allow operation for 2 hours 50 minutes (at an ambient temperature of 25°C).( Data output function)· An RS-232C data output connector is provided for use with a ."";..¡ data collector or external computer. The SET6 can transmit : slope distance and horizontal and vertical angle data to an external device. l - - - ., - - - _. - - -- -:-_"--:"-~--~~~"--~-,,;::-:.~~.~~~~-t~~~-:-::~-:~"-:::~~~~::Ä%~::~~-:::::~~~!f~:~:::;¡.,: .:1 ..~ § ~
  8. 8. 2. PRECAUTIONS 1) When the SET6 is not used for a long time, check it at least once every three months. 2) Handle the SET6 with care. Avoid heavy shocks or vibration. 3) When removing the SET6 from the carrying case, never pull it out by force. The empty carrying case should then be closed to exclude dust. 4) If any problems are found with the rotatable po(tion, screws or optical parts (e.g. lens!. contact our agent. 5) Never place the SET6 directly on the ground. 6) Never carry SET6 on the tripod to another site. 7) Protect the SET6 with an umbrella against strong sunlight and rain. 8) When the operator leaves the SET6, the vinyl cover should be placed over the instrument. 9) Do not aim the telescope at the sun. 10) Always remove the battery from the SET6 before returning it to the case. 11) Always switch the power off before removing the internal battery. 12) Do not wipe the display æ, keyboard 4f or the carrying case with any organic solvent. 13) When the SET6 is placed in the case, follow the layout plan. 14) Make sure that the SET6 and the protective lining of the carrying case are dry before closing the case. (The case is hermetically sealed; if moisture is trapped inside, damage to the instrument could occur.) Ð - .::- ::~. ~""~"!.~"::~:.-:--".;" -~ !-¿.:;..,-:~~ "- ..... -,. ,- ,-..-~,:,ri

Support it with one hand and insert and tighten the centring screw with the other. 3) Turn the optical plummet eyepiece (; to focus on the reticle circles. Note the position of the surveying point with respect to the reticle centre. (; . ... ......___~.~H...,.""~""""..".Ai S i"

U legs .~" ~ tripod plummet :~ ~ Adj ust Optical . .. 3) Shorten the tripod leg nearest the bubble direction or extend the leg farthest from this direction. Generally, two tripod legs must be ad- justed to centre the bubble. 4) Using the horizontal clamp 4F, turn the upper part of the instrument until the plate level æ is parallel to a I ine between levelling screws A and B. 5) Centre the plate bubble using levelling screws A and B. Note: The bubble moves towards a clockwise-rotated foot screw. 6) Turn the upper part through 900. The plate level is now perpendicular to a line between levelling screws A and B. Centre the plate level bubble using level- ling screw C.¡ A B¡~r_~"x,ox";¡:.c~"".:..."",iJ¡.r~",,.,o,.c., c o ,-~"--".~J"¡1"~~~--_- ~_-." -. -. - - - _ ," .,...-....,..;-.., . ;::-.:_~.~._-;~"""_":.r.-_..!i .rt,;,:r:
  15. 15. 7) Turn the upper part a further 90° and , check the bubble position. If the bubble is off-centre, either perform the plate level adjustment described on page 31 or carefully adjust levelling screws A and B in equal and opposite directions A 8 to remove half of the bubble displace.4J ment. Again turn the upper part a further 90° and use levelling screw C to remove half of the displacement in th is direction. · The bubble should now remain in the same position for any position of the upper part. (If it does not, repeat the levelling pro- cedure.) The following steps are different for the SET6 and SET6S. o (SET6) 8) Look through the optical plummet eye- piece.

DISTANCE MEASUREMENT 12.1 Atmospheric correction · The atmospheric correction is necessary for accurate distance measurement, because the velocity of light in air is affected by the temperature and atmospheric pressure. The SET6 is designed so that the correction factor is 0 for a temperature of +15°C (+59° F) and an atmospheric pressure of 1013mb (29.9inchHg). Note: To obtain the average refractive index of the air throughout the measured i ight path, you should use the average atmo- spheric pressure and temperature. Take care when calculat- ing the correction factor in mountainous terrain.

The glass tube of the plate level is sensitive to temperature change or shock. Check and adjust as follows: ( Check) 1) Turn the upper part of the instrument until the plate level is parallel to a line between levelling foot screws A and B. Centre the plate level bubble using level- ling screws A and B. Note: The bubble moves towards a clock- wise-rotated footscrew. Bubble movement 2) Loosen the horizontal clamp æ and turn the upper part 900. i.e. The plate level is perpendicular to a line between levelling screws A and B. Centre the plate level bubble using level- ling screw C. c 3) Turn the upper part through 1800 and check the bubble position. If the bubble is still centred, no adjust- ~ ment is necessary.
