Leica TS16 Vertical offset
I am having trouble finding the tool in my Leica CS20 remote controller to measure the power line height above my head (unreachable object). The job can't be done with laser as it's too far and thin. When I used Trimble there was as an opportunity to first stand below the line and measure to the prism and then show the line. So the instrument used the angles to calculate the power line height. I am sure that Leica has this opportunity too, but can't find the information from the Internet nor the controller, where can it be located.
Thanks in advance!
Under the measure point app, you have three options: measure, distance and store.
measure shoots a distance and stores the shot in one step.
distance shoots a distance and displays on the screen
store simply stores whatever data in on the screen
to store offset shots, shoot the distance (for your use, make sure the prism hit is set to 0), then dial the crosshairs to the overhead line, and press store.
Look in the app tools. There is a remote height application that does exactly what you want.
Another approach is to change the vertical angle from "fixed after distance" to "free after distance" shoot D, turn up and hit record. Not sure about where it is on your soft but on the older Leica it was something like settings-units-angle-vertical angle
for whatever reason this is like the last thing i still want to do old school. so i just book everything and do a little geometry in the truck. doesn't happen very often, so it's almost like knocking off the cobwebs...
