More Information About the Nikon NE-103

Nikon's NE-103 theodolite is the only member of the NE-100 line that includes a vertical axis compensator. This digital theodolite is designed for construction and survey. It is IP56 water and dust proof certified and will be unaffected by water from any angle.

Top of the NE-100 line of theodolites, the 103 gives precise measurements and maintains the affordability that make it a serious consideration for surveyors. Its simple interface includes numerous features to make field work easier: a 5-key, one-touch interface operates commands on a back-lit LCD display, and a built-in reticle illuminator allowing you to work in low-light, such as in tunnels or vacant buildings.

The NE-103 has a similar level of efficiency as the rest of the NE-100 series, and can run standard operation on AA alkaline batteries for 47 hours. View the amount of power remaining via the indicator on the the LCD screen.

The Nikon NE-103 theodolite manages various features easily, such as resetting horizontal angle to "0," converting vertical angles to percent-of-grade or locking a horizontal angle on your LCD screen while repositioning or repeating a measurement.
