Trimble SX12

Engineered for every day.

By combining innovative technology with intuitive functionality the Trimble® SX12 scanning total station saves time and maximizes efficiency.

Collect, process and deliver data with fully integrated field and office software workflows. The SX12 collects high-quality, high-speed scan data, providing detailed site context in a seamless workflow that enables informed and faster project-based decisions.

High accuracy, high quality:
The Trimble SX12 total station achieves 1” angular accuracy. This high accuracy is combined with our most precise EDM that produces extremely clean point clouds, saving you time cleaning the data later.

Vivid, eye-safe laser pointer:
Aim, measure and mark effortlessly with a vivid green laser pointer with the smallest point size in the industry, just 3 mm at 50 m, that’s still eye safe.

The combination of a high-accuracy total station and surgically precise scanner lets you save time by capturing detail in key areas, without ever sacrificing accuracy. Trimble SX12 the high-accuracy total station with high-precision scanning capabilities, offers:

  • Angular accuracy:
  • EDM accuracy:
    1.0 mm + 1.5 ppm Prism / 2.0 mm + 1.5 ppm DR
  • EDM laser spot diameter:
    14 mm at 100 m
  • Scan speed:
    26,600 points per second, 600 m away
  • Scan range noise:
    1.5 mm at 200 m
  • Vivid, eye-safe laser pointer:
    3 mm diameter spot at 50 m


Below, you will find the main features of the product.

Discover the applications in which the product can be used.

Boundary and Land Title Surveys

Swiftly document every feature of a land title survey with a powerful combination of high accuracy surveying and 26,000 points-per-second 3D scanning. Capture the location of boundaries, buildings, easements and site improvements in a seamless process. Back in the office, engineers can immediately visualize the site and surrounding context, including right-of-way features, encroaching elements and complex structures. When it comes time for rendering, CAD technicians can easily understand and extract additional site information from scan data and images without costly site revisits.

Topo, Stakeout, and Surface Inspection

Count on the focused and exceptionally visible laser pointer to stake out points or measure topo points with ease, even at night. Use Trimble® Access™ to easily compare scans to a reference surface such as a horizontal floor, inclined or vertical wall, or cylinder. Reference colorized point clouds to instantly identify surface irregularities, then mark issues in the field using the laser pointer.

Underground Mine Survey

Achieve discrete total station point measurement and 3D scanning with one powerful instrument. Easily stake out mine features using the ultra-bright, high-power laser, then scan to efficiently collect georeferenced point cloud data. Boost accuracy and speed when performing volumetric surveys, including overbreak and underbreak comparisons.

Roadway/Corridor Surveys

Improve safety and reduce costs by avoiding road closures and keeping surveyors out of harm’s way. Efficiently scan road corridors and intersection details such as roadway surfaces, overhead power lines and lane markings. Capture flow-lines, manholes, and right-of-way monumentation with prism observations, then use Trimble Business Center’s automated tools to extract point features such as signs and pole attributes and 3D linework for curb and gutter. Incorporating detailed panorama imagery, provide site context like never before to improve deliverable quality and communications between you and your clients.

Civil Infrastructure As-Builts

Capture rich, accurate and complete geometrical and visual documentation of bridges, dams, tunnels, complex structures and more. Work smarter and faster on as-builts, clearance, deformation monitoring and retrofit design projects. With simple framing techniques and 600 m scan ranges, it’s easy to collect detailed data, even on large or remote structures.
