Setting Up the Instrument
2.1
General Information
Use the tripod
The instrument should always be set up on its tripod. Using the tripod specified for
the scanning system guarantees maximum stability during scanning operations.
)
)
Always set up the instrument on its tripod. Do not set up the instrument directly on
the ground for scanning operations.
It is always recommended to shield the instrument from direct sunlight and avoid
uneven temperatures around the instrument.

1. Extend the tripod legs to allow for a comfortable working posture. Tighten the
screws at the bottom of the legs.
2. Place the tribrach on the tripod and secure it with the central fixing screw.
3. Set up the tripod so that the tripod plate is as horizontal as possible.
4. Push the tripod legs firmly into the ground.
5. Place the instrument on the tribrach and secure it with the tribrach’s locking
knob.
6. Level up the instrument using the instrument’s circular level. Turn two of the foot
screws together in opposite directions. The index finger of your right hand indicates the direction in which the bubble should move. Now use the third foot
screw to centre the bubble.
)
The instrument must be levelled before it is switched ON. If not levelled
using the tribrach’s or the instrument’s circular level, it may not power up
properly or scanning accuracy may not be achieved.
2.3
Setup Over a Benchmark with the Internal Laser Plummet
Description
This topic describes an instrument setup over a marked ground point using the laser
plummet. Geo-referencing of the ScanStation C10 is established by setting up over a
known or assumed control point, with optional reference target measurement to set
the azimuth direction, and establishing a local or global coordinate system.
The ScanStation C10 allows you to traverse, resect or free-station. Known azimuth
or known backsight measurements can be observed.
)
)
)
It is always possible to set up the instrument without the need for a marked ground
point.
The data scanned with ScanStation C10 is corrected by an internal dual-axis compensator, when the dual-axis compensator is enabled (via onboard control or Cyclone).
•
•
The laser plummet described in this topic is built into the vertical axis of the
instrument. It projects a red spot onto the ground, making it much easier to
centre the instrument.
The laser plummet cannot be used in conjunction with a tribrach equipped with
an optical plummet.

5. Move the tripod legs (a) and use the tribrach footscrews (h) to centre the
plummet (i) over the ground point.
6. Adjust the tripod legs (j) to level the circular level (k).
7. By using the electronic level (Status, Level and Laser plummet, Level) turn the
tribrach footscrews (h) to precisely level the instrument.
8. Centre the instrument precisely over the ground point (i) by shifting the tribrach
on the tripod plate.
9. Repeat steps 7. and 8. until the required accuracy is achieved.

1. Place tripod centrally over the ground
point, level instrument.
2. Click GHT196 distance holder to tribrach.
It must "snap" onto the cover over an
adjusting screw.
3. Unfold measuring tongue, pull out tape
measure a little.
4. Insert GHM008 instrument height meter
in the distance holder and attach.
5. Swivel measure in the direction of the
ground point, pull out until the tip of the
measuring tongue touches the point on
the ground, keep under tension and do
not allow to sag, clamp if necessary.
6. Read height of the instrument (ground tilt axis) in the reading window at the red
marking (in the example 1.627 m).
)
•
•
•
For detailed information about the GHM008 instrument height meter
and GHT196 distance holder refer to the GHM008/GHT196 user manual
which is delivered with these items.
The tilt axis height of the ScanStation C10 is 250 mm. Take care to use
the GHM008 which has a special scale to measure the height of instruments with a tilt axis height of 250 mm. Do not use a tape with any
other scale.
Alternatively the instrument height can be measured with a common,
1:1 scaled measuring tape from the point on the ground to the little
notch under the red Leica logo at both side covers of the scanner. This
distance will then be from the ground point to the tilt axis.

Power Supply and Charging
Primary use/charging
• The battery must be charged prior to using for the first time because it is delivered with an energy content as low as possible.
• The permissible temperature range for charging is between 0°C to +45°C / +32°F
to +113°F. For optimal charging we recommend charging the battery at a low
ambient temperature of +10°C to +20°C / +50°F to +68°F if possible.
• It is normal for the battery to become warm during charging. Using the chargers
recommended by Leica Geosystems, it is not possible to charge the battery if the
temperature is too high or too low.
• For new batteries or batteries that have been stored for a long time (> three
months), it is effectual to make only one charge/discharge cycle.
• For Li-Ion batteries, a single discharging and charging cycle is sufficient. We
recommend carrying out the process when the battery capacity indicated on the
charger or on a Leica Geosystems product deviates significantly from the actual
battery capacity available.
Operation/Discharging
• The battery can be operated from -20°C to +55°C / -4°F to +131°F.
• Low operating temperatures reduce the capacity that can be drawn; very high
operating temperatures reduce the service life of the battery.
)
)
As the battery pack contains rechargeable cells it is always recommended to handle
the battery and charging station with care. Observe the LEDs on the charging station
before and after the charging process, as well as during operation. For details please
refer to section "Indicator panel" on page 50.

When port P3 is connected for charging, both ports P1 and P2 cannot be used
for operation: no simultaneous charging and discharging.
When port P1 is connected for operation, port P2 cannot be used for operation

Rain, snow or fog cause poor measurements, so it is not possible to
survey during these conditions!
Surfaces that are directly illuminated by the sun cause an increased
range noise and therefore a larger measurement uncertainty.
If some objects are scanned against the sunlight or a bright spotlight,
the optical receiver of the instrument can be dazzled so heavily that in
this area no measured data is recorded. A "black hole" appears in the
reflectance image.

 Caution
Soiling of the glass pane can cause extreme measurement errors and therefore
useless data!
Precautions:
All soiling that is visible on the glass pane has to be removed, except for single small
dust particles that adhere inevitably.
)
Clean the glass pane regularly with the provided glass cleaning kit:
• Switch off instrument.
• Washing hands is necessary in order to avoid grease on the cleaning
tissue.
• Better, use gloves to avoid finger oil on the glass.
• Then use the lens tissue for wiping circularly from the center to the edge
until there is only a thin film of detergent visible.
• Use a new lens tissue for drying the pane, wipe in circles.
• If any smears from cleaning are visible against back light, repeat the
procedure.
• Do not touch the side of the paper that is used for cleaning with your
fingers.
• Do not reuse tissues that have been used before.
• Only use non-fuzzy lens tissues.
• Do not use air from the pneumatic power system as this is always slightly
oily!

General
General
The following directions (in accordance with the state of the art - international
standard IEC 60825-1 (2007-03) and IEC TR 60825-14 (2004-02)) provide instruction and training information to the person responsible for the product and the
person who actually uses the equipment, to anticipate and avoid operational
hazards.
The person responsible for the product must ensure that all users understand these
directions and adhere to them.
)
)
Products classified as laser class 1, class 2 and class 3R do not require:
• laser safety officer involvement,
• protective clothes and eyewear,
• special warning signs in the laser working area
if used and operated as defined in this user manual due to the low eye
hazard level.
Products classified as laser class 2 or class 3R may cause dazzle, flashblindness and after-images, particularly under low ambient light conditions.
6.6.2
Distance Laser
General
The laser incorporated into the product produces a visible green laser beam which
emerges from the rotating mirror.
The laser product described in this section, is classified as laser class 3R in accordance with:
• IEC 60825-1 (2007-03): "Safety of laser products".
• EN 60825-1 (2007-10): "Safety of laser products".
Class 3R laser products:
Direct intrabeam viewing may be hazardous (low-level eye hazard), in particular for
deliberate ocular exposure. The risk of injury for laser class 3R products is limited
because of:
a) unintentional exposure would rarely reflect worst case conditions of (e.g.) beam
alignment with the pupil, worst case accommodation,
b) inherent safety margin in the maximum permissible exposure to laser radiation
(MPE),
c) natural aversion behaviour for exposure to bright light for the case of visible radiation.
