Before we saw A guide for the use of the total station in the cadastre, in which the capture of information appears.
Now we will see how to download the data to the computer, using one of the guides that one of my technicians did. A great job, by the way. I'm using for this:
Total station Sokkia Set 520
USB data transfer cable
1 The click before
For some strange reason, with my first total station, the transfer cable was damaged a couple of times. Although the boys are Careful, We could not find justifications, more than the possibility that, since we did not have a belt, To tie the tail to the cow Have used it for that ... with similar results.
I have seen a transfer cable (like the one shown in the picture) that has the Bombita where the chip is inserted, to the extreme, it is more efficient than the one that has it in the center. It occurs to me, that in that Xder Of desperation inserted it and pulled out the perverse, and that caused the chip to burn.
2 Prepare the station to transfer
Having the transfer cable connected (USB to serial converter), It is indicated that what we hope is to transfer data, and which works:
MEM> JOB> Then we do Enter.
In the next panel we select Comms Output and then Enter.
Then we select the work to be transferred. Observe that when selected, instead of appearing the number of points captured, you change to the text Out, Which means it is ready to be transferred.
The following is just select the OK option, with the format SDR33, then a message will appear indicating that you are transferring, and the number of points in process. Beware, this is done until the connection has already been configured from the Prolink, which is explained below.
3 Configuring the Prolink
The project. For this, we do File> New Project, And assign the name of the file, which will be stored in the format SPP. This can be open to the future, in case we close the program and need to return to the same project. A new project is made for each JOBIf not ... they'll tell me.
The connection. Now press the reception icon, or press File> Send-receive. Then we will see the download panel, where we will configure some parameters:
En Settings, We will establish that the port to use will be the COM4, The baud rate we chose 1200Parity none, Data bits 8 And stop bits 1. This is done only once, and sometimes you have to try more than one port.
With the button Connect, The connection is tested, and in case of finding it, the visible station will appear with the name:
Powerset File SDR.
Also, the button changes from Connect To the option Disconnect.
The transference. Once selected, with the transfer button (center arrow), Activates the download.
Eye, at this moment the sending must be activated from the total station, mentioned at the end of the 2 subsection.
At the end, the complete transfer message should appear. How happy, the cow did not damage the cable.
Import / Export. So far, what we have done is transfer the data set. In order to import them to the panel, we do File> Import, We select the downloaded package and then we can see the raw information.
What comes is to export the points to DXF. For this purpose, Fillet > Exoprt, And the alternative of points with annotations is chosen.
