Nikon’s next generation total station is Nivo and it is available in two exciting lines: the Nivo C Series and Nivo M+ Series. Both of the Nivo series are the absolute leaders for go anywhere measurement tools. Compact in size and lightweight, they are convenient to carry over long distances. All Nivo models are supported with legendary Nikon high clarity optics, allowing clearer images in bright and low light conditions, making measurements easy and reducing eye stress.

The fast, long range EDM measures in both prism and reflectorless modes. Measure precisely to objects up to 500 m away without the need for a prism.

Nivo M+ Series models support Bluetooth communications to external data collectors. In addition all models come standard with a traditional optical plummet which can be upgraded to a laser Plummet. All Nivo M+ Series models feature dual displays, support for USB memory sticks and onboard storage for 25,000 points.

Nikon has combined simplicity and quality together in perfect harmony to produce the Nikon M+ Series. These compact and efficient products use a field-proven Nikon interface and field software that is quick to learn and easy-to-use. Supporting both prism-based and reflectorless technologies, you can be assured of accurate repeatable measurements all day long to any point.

The distance measurements are fast and flexible with the Nivo M+ Series. Use the MSR1 & MSR2 keys to separately configure different prism or reflectorless measurement parameters, eliminating time switching between measurement modes. Nivo M+ Series field software highlights include:

     • A complete set of CoGo functions
     • Simple data management of files
     • Quick-coding for convenient one-button data collection of point features and your raw target data.

The ultimate in quality for hardworking conditions all day, every day.

The Nivo M+ Series is available in 2″, 3″ and 5″ models to meet your specific accuracy needs.
