Instrument Security & Weather Protection

At SCCS we provide specialist security and weather protection systems for your highly valued surveying instrument. Theft protection is extremely important when you total station is left unmanned for any period of time. We recommend the Total Station theft protection system from Tachylock which consists of a galvanised steel case fixed to a concrete pillar or post with stainless steel screws. We also have a protection cover which fits any Leica Total Station and provides cover against dust, wind and rain.

  • Instrument Security Cage

    Bespoke manufactured by SCCS for use with total stations. The instrument security cage is fabricated from Aluminium and Stainless steel with custom fittings for mounting with the SCCS Survey control post, SCCS Survey Control Pyramid and SCCS 14TK wall bracket systems. The cage has a fixed bottom plate with countersunk holes so that once fitted to its mounting it cannot be removed as the tribrach of the total station covers the cage mounting screws. Additional holes in the base plate allow fitting of the tribrach operation inhibitor TachyLOK device.

    The SCCS instrument security cage is tall enough to also have an AD12 self-levelling tribrach safely and securely mounted within its enclosure allowing for the total station to be mounted above.

    Due to the bespoke nature of total station installation and the site requirements for varying observational heights to prisms the upper ring can be installed at custom heights as defined by the end user by sliding the horizontal ring on the vertical bars, then fixing with grub screws to lock it into place securely. This then enables the telescope to be free of obstructions on the horizontal plane of the ring. Additional vertical bars of hardened stainless steel have been installed in this MK2 cage and the padlocks have been upgraded following customer feedback to prevent tampering.

    The MK2 cage also has a female 5/8” threaded hole in its base plate to enable the use of a semi-captive cap screw to be fitted clamping the tribrach of the total station. Due to its circular face, the cap screw then cannot be rotated and thus the tribrach cannot be removed whilst the total station is mounted.

    Note that this is a theft deterrent system and not theft prevention, SCCS always recommend the use of PIN codes with total stations and the use of Leica Loc8 technology.
