Connecting a Leica CS15 to a Leica

Connecting a Leica CS15 to a Leica TS15 using MicroSurvey
FieldGenius
Introduction
This guide describes how to configure your Leica TS15 to accept a
radio connection from a CS15 with MicroSurvey FieldGenius
running on it. This guide was written for the RH15 radio handle, but
comments have been added to support the CTR16 Bluetooth radio
handle.
You will then learn how to create a Leica TS15 robotic total station
profile in FieldGenius, and then connect the two devices via their
internal radios.
From there you will learn how to connect your CS15 to your TS15
using a cable and then using Bluetooth.
Important Note: You only need to create a particular profile once.
After that FieldGenius will preserve and use this already-created
profile.
Current
Version
This guide was written using FieldGenius Version 6.0.4.2 installed
on a Leica CS15 with SmartWorx 4.03 installed. If you are using a
different version, your screens may look differently than what is
displayed in this guide.
Before you begin
Have your Leica TS15 robotic total station and Leica CS15 data
collector with FieldGenius installed on it close by. You will need
them to complete this guide.
This guide assumes you have already installed FieldGenius onto
your CS15.

Step
1
Before we can connect the CS15 to the Leica TS15, we must first
configure the TS15 to be able to accept a radio connection from the
CS15.
Action
•
Display
Turn on your Leica TS15.
This starts up the Windows CE 6.0
operating system, and then starts
SmartWorx Viva followed by the
SmartWorx Setup Wizard.
In the first screen of the SmartWorx
Setup Wizard:
•
Level your instrument and then
tap on the Next button.
This takes us to the Current
Temperature and Pressure screen.

In the Current Temperature and Pressure
screen:
•
Make adjustment appropriate to
your environment, and then tap
on the Next button. In this
example I will accept the default
settings.
This takes us to the Job selection screen.

Creating an
Instrument
Profile
Instrument profiles contains settings specific to the particular
instrument you are attempting to connect to. Once you have created
a profile, you can then select it when creating a new project and all
of that particular instrument’s settings will be used. This becomes
especially useful when you have multiple instruments. Selecting a
profile vs. having to enter settings every time significantly speeds up
you day.
We will create an instrument profile for the Leica TS15.
Step

Action
Display
In the Instrument Selection screen:
•
Tap on the Total Station
radio button.
Note: This is the screen where you
can create new instrument profiles,
delete existing profiles, or select
previously created profiles.

Instrument profiles are used to save
your particular instrument’s settings
so that you don’t have to remember
them or have to set them each time
you create a new project or select an
instrument to use.

Connecting your
CS15 Via a cable
The previous section explained how to connect to your robotic total
station using the internal radios of the CS15 and TS15. There may
be times when you will want to work behind the total station in a
non-robotic mode, and connect your data collector to the instrument
either via a cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth. This section describes
how to connect using a cable. The following section describes how
to connect via Bluetooth.
First we must go back to the TS15 and configure it to accept a cable
connection.
Step
1
Action
Display
From the SmartWorx main menu:
•
Follow Steps 1-8 in the first
section of this guide.
At Step 8 you will arrive at the
Connect using screen of the CS
Connection Wizard:

Congratulations
You have successfully configured SmartWorx to accept an incoming
radio signal on the TS15.
You then went over to the CS15 and successfully created a Leica
TS15 Total Station profile.
You then made a successful connection between your CS15 and
TS15.
You then repeated the above sections but this time configuring the
system to connect via a cable between the CS15 and TS15.
Then you repeated this but used Bluetooth as a connection method.
Remember, FieldGenius will preserve these settings in your
instrument profile. You only have to create this profile once. In
other words, you don’t have to follow these steps each and every
time you want to survey using this total station and data collector.
