Gridline Layout

The Autograde SPS can locate any gridlines quickly and accurately regardless if it's a straight grid or a grid on a radius. The Autograde SPS eliminates the need to interline gridlines with transits. The Autograde SPS eliminates the need to pull off long distances with measuring tapes and eliminates field calculations.


Slab Edge Layout

Users can setup anywhere on the site.  Simply sight the prism and the Autograde SPS will locate slab edges and corners relative to the prism location. The benefit is quicker and more accurate layouts.  This eliminates the need to perform complicated calculations thus reducing errors.



Anchor Bolt Layout

The Autograde SPS can layout or verify anchor bolts quickly and accurately. Just place the prism on top of the anchor bolt and the Autograde SPS will verify its position or direct you to its proper position.

 

Footing and Column Layout

The Autograde SPS will locate all footings, columns, and walls. The Autograde SPS locates lines and grades quickly and accurately reducing field errors.



Verify Drawings

When BDI files are created drawing errors are brought to light. Discrepancies between architectural and structural drawings are resolved up front before construction starts. Eliminating field down-time due to drawing errors.

 

Locate feature-lines

After you have taken your grade shot press the Autoline button (F4). The Autograde SPS will direct you to the intersection of construction lines. The direction will be an in or out from the sight line, and a left or right from the sight line. The sight line is from the total station setup point to the prism shot location.

 

Locate feature-points

After you have taken your grade shot, press the Autopoint button (F5). The Autograde SPS will direct you to the nearest construction point. The direction will be an in/out from the sight line as well as left/right. The direct distance to the construction point will also be displayed.

Example: out 12.5 right 5.0 direct 13.47

How Does It Work?

1. Construction drawings are made digital.
2. Drawings are loaded into a hand held data collector.
3. The total station is setup anywhere on the site.
4. Sight any two control points and the Autograde SPS will resection its location.
5. Place the prism pole anywhere. Push (F2) and the Autograde SPS gives a real-time cut/fill.
6. Push (F3) and the Autograde SPS saves the shot.
7. Push (F4) and the Autograde SPS directs you to feature lines.
8. Push (F5) and the Autograde SPS directs you to feature points.
