The SPS985 and SPS985L are engineered to stand up to the most dynamic and rugged jobsite measurement applications. The integrated smart antenna design and quick release connector make it easy to transport and set up on a range pole, ATV or supervisor truck. The SPS985/SPS985L can move from one site measurement application to another with one quick release, saving set up time and maximizing use time. For example, a grade checker can mount the SPS985 to an all terrain vehicle and conduct site topos, check as-builts, and road center lines in even the roughest site conditions. The SPS985/SPS985L can withstand the high vibration scenarios often seen on ATV-mounted site work without interruption or fear of damage.
