Trimble SPS730 Total Station

The All-in One, Universal Total Station
The Trimble® SPS730 and SPS930 Universal
Total Stations provide five ways to measure
with one instrument. Servo, Autolock,
Robotic, Reflectorless and ATS Grade
Control modes provide the ability to tackle
any measurement, stakeout, reflectorless or
grade control task on the jobsite – all from
one instrument.


Accuracy to Match Job Site Requirements
The SPS930 provides 1 second horizontal
and vertical angle accuracy for any precise
measurement, stakeout or fine grading

The SP730 provides 2 second vertical and 3
second horizontal angle accuracy to meet
the needs of all but the highest precision
measurement or stakeout functions on site.

DR300+ long-range reflectorless

The DR300+ long range reflectorless
measurement capability allows you to
quickly and safely measure hard-toreach
or unsafe places 300 meters away
and beyond. There is no need to walk
the surface with a target. You’ll realize
significant increases in productivity and
safety when measuring stockpiles, profiling
cuttings and rock faces.

Trimble MultiTrack Technology
Trimble MultiTrack technology locks on and
tracks passive prisms for applications such
as monitoring or control measurements
and active targets for dynamic
measurement, stakeout and grade control

Active targets provide enhanced dynamic
tracking performance and guaranteed
lock to the correct target, especially in
dusty construction site conditions. Up to
16 unique channels of target identification
can be used to differentiate survey crews
and grade checkers from machine control
operations, eliminating down time caused
by unnecessary interference.

Unmatched Dynamic Positioning
Grade control for earthmoving and fine
grading machinery requires an updated,
highly accurate position delivered on a very
frequent basis. The more data provided,
the smoother the hydraulic control and
the higher gear that the machine can
operate in. The Trimble SPS730 and SPS930
instruments deliver an unmatched 20
hertz update rate combined with low
latency, synchronized data measurements
for unmatched machine performance.
Combined with the Trimble MT900 active
machine target they can operate at ranges
up to 700 meters at +/-45 degree slopes,
in the highest gear and in the dustiest
conditions at the same time delivering
the smoothest and most accurate finish
available. Repeatability in the accuracy
of graded layers results in fewer passes,
reduced fuel and maintenance, reduced
rework not to mention material savings,
time and associated cost benefits.

Trimble SPS730 Total Station
