Testing the Total Station Sokkia SET 630RK

I have just begun to see this model, at the end of the month I hope to do a formal training so that the technicians are Evangelize in its news. Estaciontotalsokkiark Until now we had been using the Set520K, Of which I had spoken before.

We will give the workshop at the end of May of 2010, either in Honduras or El Salvador. If someone is in the environment and wants to sign up, they will be welcome.

If you can not for that date, it is not too much to leave the message, because we plan to do another one later.

What does r mean

I came from reflectorless, which implies that it can take readings as a distance meter and not with obligation using a prism. This is very practical, because in a well planned job it is possible to save one of the cadeneros, I do not say that both because someone has to help us load the tripod. In a Cadastral survey Urban or engineering project, being able to bounce on existing objects is a great advantage.

What does K mean?

Is keyboard, or what is called an expanded keyboard. That letter is carried by all those computers that the keyboard apart from the basic function keys already include the additional panel of numbers and also serve to enter letters. Sure, this Set 630RK brings only keyboard on one side, unlike the 520K, although the technicians tell me that they do not see a major advantage to the double keyboard unless they are training.

The variants of this model are:

  • Set230RK3
  • Set330RK3
  • Set530RK3
  • Set230RK
  • Set330RK
  • Set530RK
  • Set630RK

The difference between the first group and the second (among others), is the 3, which means an 3R laser with which you can get up to 350 meters without prism and up to 800 with miniprisma. While the other is a class 2 laser, reflectance of up to 200 meters nothing more. This is significant to improve the accuracy, capture time in fast mode, although for that I recommend you take a look at the comparative table Of total stations I showed them the other time.

This equipment (3 Series) is said to be more robust at the hardware level, although software improvements are more noticeable, especially in the distance meter. The laser has a finer pointer, to the degree of being able to take points with precision like the edge of a beam, the corner of a wall, still having obstacles in front like a wire mesh or a bush. The following iconography shows functionalities that this team brings, of which I will explain at least two:

Estaciontotalsokkiark_3

Estaciontotalsokkiark_4

Offset with two points, see that in the case of taking a point in a corner of a house (C), the staff can be placed inclined, indicate that we will take offset with two points (A and B) and enter the distance these two points that we know from the walking stick. Thus, the team detects where point C remains.

Area calculation, this equipment can with 50 coordinates 3D, calculate the area. This is interesting, in case of radial measurements or when we want to have an idea of ​​the area taken before coming to the cabinet to Download And draw the polygon.

Price:

That will depend on the local distributor, as a reference I have consulted Froogle, and the value that appears to me is close to US $ 7,000. But clicking on the link gives me a higher value, without including accessories.

Sokkia has its distributors in each country, but with the boom of online sales, the exclusivity is diluted. In my opinion, with two sticks, two prisms and a tripod, debería To walk there, put at the airport. To this must be added the costs of customs clearance (maybe about $ 150) and sales tax, depending on the country.

Buying it online with an unauthorized distributor, paying shipping costs, and etceteras is not so practical. It ends up coming out more expensive and the warranty is complicated. Used equipment is a lottery that usually ends badly.

It is assumed that a local distributor should be in that price range, perhaps up to US $ 8,000. In case of being exclusive their prices will be higher because they have no competition. For that there is (Well, there are not many but there are) Distributors that sell at regional level, outside their countries where they have representation, with all the guarantees of law and much more competitive prices.

A manual of Use of this total station Was worked by Leopoldo Hernández and his team.

  13. good morning

    Is to know how I do to change the language of a total sokkia station 550X

    Thank you

  14. Hi, very good afternoon my question is: How can I or how do I to canbiar the screen to the Spanish of my total station SOKKIA SET 630 RK3 in advance I thank you much for your support thanks.

  15. I NEED THE 650RX MANUAL, HOW MUCH DO I SPEAK IT IN SPANISH

  16. PEND THE COMPLETE MANUAL OF THE STATION BECAUSE IN SUMMARY IT DOES NOT UNDERSTAND IT

  17. How do I change the language on the screen of the sokkia station 630rk?

  18. How do I get the total station manual sokkia set 630 rk in Spanish.

  19. Well, there are several things to see there:

    1 If you came with a CD when buying the adapter, you must install the driver.
    2 If not, and since you have Windows 7, it should be Plug & Play.
    3 You must verify that the port is correct; That is done with:

    Start, control panel, System and there you choose device manager.

    Search in Ports (LPT & COM) for one that says: Prolific USB to Serial Comm

    Choose in advanced settings, and make sure the transfer speed is at 33600 bps and the COM port number 1

    This should work, sometimes you have to right-click on the port and choose to look for changes. However, being a Plug & Play, the change should be recognized immediately.

  20. I have a total station sokkia set610. Buy a cable that matches serial to vga in order to connect the computer to the station. The thing is that I do not recognize it. Help to dump the data my system is windows 7

  21. Check this link, which published Galileo Topography.
    There they explain how to configure the ports.

    The Serial Port 1 COM must be at a transfer speed of 33600 bps

  22. That is a fairly common problem, not Sokkia's fault but Windows because the handling of ports in laptops often conflict, as opposed to desktop.
    I do not know if anyone has managed to solve it.
    The new Rk have an SD card, which eliminates this problem of being lowered with cable.

  23. I have a total station sokkia rk, and I have complicated the download of data to a laptop with window 7 there will be some driver or some way to enable the downloading of data is very complicated for me to leave every time work to the city to download data I appreciate any information. Richard

  24. Hi Carlos. To answer you must say in which country you are.

    a greeting

  25. I would like to know where I can go to obtain the manual of use of a total station sokkia, model 630rk.de before hand I thank you

  26. It's not a bad idea. The market for the sale of equipment in Mexico is monopolized but the sale of training, support, repair and calibration services is a broad niche that is not supplied with the few that do.

  27. That is a fairly frequent problem. In general it is presented by two situations:

    1 It is that the USB cable not only transmits data but also energy, and that is why it is very easy to damage the port or the ship that can bring the device of the connection cable. You should always see if it is possible that the cable is damaged, testing on another machine.
    In the case of serial connection cables, because they are data transfer only, they do not present such problems.

    2 The other reason is because the USB port is very easy to enter into conflicts, because there are several, it has evolved to different transfer models and with each version of windows it gets complicated. Therefore, the conflict is very frequent in the machines that have Windows Vista or Windows 7.
    The ideal is to work downloading on Windows XP native computers, not downgraded from a Win7.

    I'm sorry I can't do more than explain the problem. It remains to use a desktop PC for download because the new laptop no longer bring serial port. But considering that it is possible to lose a job because you cannot download data, it is better to return to the tyranny of the PC can, buy a serial cable or continue using Windows XP.

  28. Hi my dear, look at the moment I am with the total station SOUTH 320NTS ... BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT I CAN NOT DOWNLOAD THE DATA TO A LAPTOP..I DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE USB CABLE ...
