Leica Geosystems surveying tools are designed to work under any weather conditions and still obtaining the bests results. However, you can still make your equipment last longer by doing some routine actions.

What damages your equipment?

Even though outdoor projects are riskier than indoors we can keep away hazards that can compromise your instrument in both situations:

  • While you are transporting your equipment use the official carry box provided. External damages such as scratches or hits can be avoided.
  • Anchor: before starting your measuring tasks, check the instrument’s clamp to its tribrach and tripod.
  • After using your equipment for a while components may worn out, if you want to know weather your equipment is performing correctly we suggest you take it for a maintenance check-up yearly to Leica’s technical service or to any authorised official dealer.

As we mentioned before, surveying equipment that is used outdoors will be exposed to rain, dust wind and sometimes even snow. Cleaning the instrument’s cover once our measuring tasks are finished will help not only keeping your instrument’s exterior tidy but also avoiding small particle deposits in the viewer or lens as well as removing humidity before putting the equipment inside the box.

Which are the consequences of a damaged surveying equipment?

If your equipment is damaged measurements are not as accurate as they can be. Unforeseen delays can be costly not only economically but also with your time.

What do we recommend?

Revising your total station, GPS or scanner yearly prevents unexpected impediments. Leica’s technical service inspections your equipment and detects which components are worn out and evaluate weather they have to be substitute or not once they have gone through a standardised procedure in which your instrument will be tested.

Find your nearest Leica technical service, if you can’t find one you can visit one of our 98 authorised Leica dealers worldwide. Each laboratory is audited periodically to guarantee Leica’s quality standards globally.
