Key Features:

Every Trimble RTS573 is perfectly designed to improve your accuracy and efficiency during the layout task process. Equipped with everything from Trimble DR Plus EDM measurement solutions to MagDrive technology for maximum speed, the RTS573 is powerful enough for even the most demanding job sites. It comes equipped with the following features:

  • Total Station Type: Robotic
  • DR Plus EDM :  DR range 4265 ft (1300m) white card 90% reflectivity
  • 3″ Angular Accuracy
  • Track Light
  • Telescope
  • One person layout
  • Robotic communication link – 2.4 GHz radio
  • Robotic radio communication range: 200 m (675 ft)
  • Prism Layout Only
  • Distance measurement accuracy (Prism Mode): ±2 mm + 2 ppm (0.01 ft + 2 ppm)
  • Reflectorless DR Measuring: Yes – 120m
  • Easy-to-follow user interface shortens learning curve and faster operation
  • Rugged design, withstands tough jobsite conditions and minimizes downtime due to repair

When combined with the Trimble Field Link or Trimble Field Link for MEP, the Trimble RTS Series Robotic Total Stations significantly increase accuracy, reliability, and productivity. Every Trimble RTS 573 can switch between active and passive tracking modes and has multitrack capabilities so you can automate building layout tasks with maximum confidence.

Every Trimble RTS 573 is equipped with Trimble MagDrive Servo Technology for excellent accuracy and speed with silent operation. Trimble Surepoint Technology provides hyper-accurate measurements by accounting for factors such as sinkage, wind and other elemental issues. The RTS 573 automatically locks on and passively tracks for control measurements. At the same time, it tracks active targets for dynamic measurements. This equipment is specially designed for grade control and stakeout.


  • Layout of control
  • Checking or typing into property boundaries
  • Layout of excavation lines
  • Layout of concrete forms and anchor bolts
  • As-built checks
  • Layout of control lines on concrete pad for subcontractor
  • Layout of hangers, sleeves and underground pipe
  • Light topographical measurements

The Trimble RTS Series Robotic Total Stations are used with Trimble Field Link or Trimble Field Link for MEP to guide your work. The Trimble RTS573 can streamline the layout of anchor bolts, concrete forms, curbing, grade checks, landscapes, retaining walls and utilities. This machine is versatile enough for light and heavy topography alike. Ensure your layout is perfect in size and scope before you begin when you invest in the RTS573.

The Trimble RTS573 is built for construction applications. Your robotic total station provides you with optimal accuracy, reliability and speed. Trimble DR Plus EDM technology allows you to visually mark points with high precision. Get automatic focus, quick manual aiming and high accuracy when you opt for the Trimble RTS573.
