The GeoMax ZPR1 360° Prism is a rugged passive 360° reflector designed for Total Stations. Consisting of six corner-cube prisms joined together, this device will reflect any EDM beam directly back to its source, regardless of how or where it is positioned.
While the GeoMax ZPR1 360° surveying prism has an overall accuracy of 5mm, this improves to 2mm when you point directly at any of the three prisms that are marked by yellow arrows. Its range is effective up to 600m and has a standard offset of 23.1 mm.
The rubber padding on the top and bottom to protect the device against falls when mounted on a prism pole.
The ZRP1 is a direct equivalent to Leica’s GRZ4 surveying prism.
|Height Offset:||86.0 mm|
|Absolute constant:||-11.30 mm|

Atmospheric conditions are defined as:
- Poor – Strong haze & 5km visibility or strong sunlight with severe heat shimmer
- Good – Light haze & visibility about 20 km or moderate sunlight with slight heat shimmer
- Best – Overcast, no haze, visibility about 40 km & no heat shimmer.
