Survey transits from Bench Mark

Only the best from Bench Mark

Survey transit theodolites typically have a three-screw levelling base. This base is mounted to your survey tripod to provide a secure, adjustable mounting point to begin your layout or survey. The body of the theodolite consists of the upper assembly, called the alidade, and the circle assembly. The alidade includes the standards, telescope, digital display, plate bubbles, compass, and upper tangent screw. The circle assembly includes the horizontal circle, covered by the alidade plate, the upper clamp screw, and produces highly accurate angular readings in the field. At Bench Mark, we offer a minimum 1-year warranty on all theodolites and survey transits. We also calibrate each device prior to selling it to ensure compliance with specifications.

Theodolites (Survey Transits) are an inexpensive and accurate tool for construction layout and basic surveying. A Theodolite (Survey Transit) is a survey instrument designed to precisely measure horizontal and vertical angles. In addition to measuring horizontal and vertical angles, Theodolites (Survey Transits) are used to establish straight lines, to establish horizontal and vertical distances using stadia, and to establish elevations when used as a level.

Using a digital survey theodolite

We can help

Digital survey theodolites are easy to use, and we can show you how. Set up the survey transit over a point using the optical plummet device on the bottom of the theodolite. Next, back-sight your theodolite survey instrument by sighting the crosshairs and focusing the telescope on a reference point. The reference point can be occupied by a pole at least 150 feet away. The next step is to zero the survey transit by hitting the set zero button. You can measure any horizontal or vertical angle on the theodolite using the displayed readings on the LED display screen. When you finish, put the instrument back in the case, but remember never to close the case when it’s wet. At Bench Mark, we back our equipment with a guarantee. If you ever experience any issues or difficulties during operation, we can help you get it up and running with only a five-minute phone call!
