Download full station data

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

Prolink 1.15

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.cable

: )

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.

Sokkia 1

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.

Sokkia 2

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.

Prolnk1

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:

Prolink2

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.Prolink 3

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), Prolink4Activates 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.

Prolink5

What comes is to export the points to DXF. For this purpose, Fillet > Exoprt, And the alternative of points with annotations is chosen.

  8. Hello lenin
    We regret that we can not help you with this, as the rules of this site do not allow the dissemination of content that violates copyright.

    A greeting.

  9. Hello everyone, I greet you from Guatemala ... the pro-link or the topconlink are very good for downloading data from the total station, we are currently using sokkia 330r and X series stations but my concern or rather my request is if someone can Pass or tell me where under the civilcad 2013 but with the crack because it is my work tool, I am currently working with the civilcad 2008 but I already want to update it, please wait for your answer, you can contact me at my email ...

  10. Thanks for the Victor solution. I think it will be useful, and I heard people asking about this problem for days.

  11. GREETINGS, CERTAINLY THE DATA ARE SHOWED ONLY THE ODD AND THE PAIRS FAIL, TO CORRECT THIS YOU CAN DO TWO THINGS:
    1) INSERT A ROW (EMPTY) IN EACH RENGLÓN OF DATA, WITH THIS WILL YOU WILL STAY AN EMPTY ROW AND ONE WITH DATA AND SO WITH ALL YOUR FILE
    2) IF THE DATA YOU HAVE IN EXCEL (AND THERE ARE THE PASSES TO txt), THEN YOU NEED TO INSERT A PARAMETER (ENTER) IN THE RIGHT CELL OF THE CODE, SO THE FORMAT MUST BE SO:
    ID NEZ «ENTER» CODE (EACH DATA ON A CELL)

    ID POINTER ID
    N - ORDERED OR COORDINATED AND
    E - ABSCISA THE COORDINATE X
    Z - LIFT OR QUOTE
    CODE - CODE OR DESCRIPTION
    ENTER - PARAMETER MARK OR ENTER

    HERE IS THE IMPORTANT THING TO ENTER THE "ENTER" BRAND, THIS YOU DO DIRECTLY FROM EXCEL, POSITIONING YOURSELF IN THE FORMULA BAR AND KEYING [ALT] + [ENTER], BY DOING THIS YOU WILL SEE THAT THE CELL CHANGES TO A DOUBLE HEIGHT, DONE THIS YOU KEEP IT WITH Txt AND READY FORMAT
    I HOPE IT IS USEFUL FOR YOU

  12. As I do to pass data txt to sdr for the esacion I'm doing with txt separated by tabalaciones but the prolink only shows me the numbers inpares and the pairs are not made but do not care. If anyone knows where the error is, please help me !! 1

  13. I would like to know where I can get the cable of the total station foif rts 538 since the cable was lost and I need to download data who helps me

  14. The Sokkia link program stopped working for everyone in May, but I found the solution, it is temporary at the moment.

    They should delay the date of the computer to January or February and ready.

  15. WHERE DO I FIND THE FORK »NEED UPGRADE» OF SOKKIA LINK?

  16. I'm in trouble I have a set sokkia 530r I'm in the field and I do not have cable as I do to download data with bluetooth since the sokkia link asks me for an update and I can not. Thank you

  19. I also got this

  20. Help I use sokkia link to download my points, but now it does not enter the program I need need upgrade, as I update or I run the program

  21. Robert…. Already upgrades your carnalillo equipment

  22. Unless the file is open as read only, it could be that you have it open twice, try to "save as" and save it as dwg with another name. That should let you modify it without inconvenience.

  23. Hello good morning I would like to know if someone could get my hand I did a topographical survey and pass the data from the station to the pc and change them to dxf format but I can not modify it in the autocad and it is the first time I have done this operation If someone could help me, I would appreciate it ......

  24. The truth is that it makes it difficult for me to download data. I have prolink autocad 2011 and civilcad, but I don't know what's up in the last step, I work aaa my makina is wind 7 will it have something to see?

  25. That depends on what type of equipment you are using. I have used Prokink with good results.

  26. How about greetings from Guate !!!!!!!

    Compa would like to know how to download more than a thousand points of the total station to the computer I am using the program textpad but it does not allow me to download more than a thousand points I would like to know how it is done or which program to use that is similar if you did the favor I would thank you !!!!!!!!!!

  27. As it does not open the files, do you not see data, or does it simply appear some message that says the file can not be opened?

    You should see what version they were generated in, you could use True View to convert them to the version you are using.

    If you can send me an example of the dwg generated to

    Editor (at) geofumadas (dot) com

    To see if I can find any reason.

  28. Hello,

    I write because I'm with water up to my neck. I learned to use the total station and to process the data (transit-> topograph98-> autocad14) on a pc. The problem is that autocad 14 does not work in win7 and when installing it in win xp (another computer) either. My laptop has win7 and autocad 2007 and I will not open the dxf or dwg files that I generate with topograph (pts, triangulation and contour lines); I do not know what to do, I have tried everything I find on the internet (which can be installed) and there is no case ... will there be any solution? Please, some (reliable) data that will get me out of the swamp.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  29. The discharge cable has always been a pain of h ... a lifetime. When the port was serial, they did not give so much can, and I think Sokkia should provide more than one way of downloading with so many alternatives today. (infrared, bluetooth, memory cards, etc.)

  30. Hey.

    Your comments and "tutorials" have helped me to know the operation of submetric GPSs and total stations, since in the university, when we work in topography, we only use electronic theodolites.

    If it is not too much to ask, could you give continuity to the subject regarding the post-processing work? I would be very grateful, since right now I am finishing reading the work of postprocessing in gps and it sounds interesting to me.

    Greetings from Guatemala.

    PD: If you came to Guate to give some courses, you could let me know, I would be interested to participate and ask a lot of things, hahahaha (my email is Pgsilvestre@gmail.com)

  31. Hears the subject well, this weekend was heciendo a topographical surveys about environmental liabilities (Fosas discharge oil waste production wells), in this case the pits are cleaning up under mechanisms bioremediation, but I I got some difficulty to download the data from my SOKKIA 630RK since I was doing it with sokkia Link, they recommended me to use the prolink and I saw something new for me and with what you explain in the subject it helps me, now it would be opportune if a topic is built on how to import points from civil 3d or autocad land once the data has been processed with prolink, since there are two ways which I am studying, one is the coordinates measured by angle and distance and the other by point visa, I think that would help several who are fans of this blog.

  32. The truth, I congratulate you, it will serve me very much.
