PRECAUTIONS REGARDING SAFETY
Usage Precautions
Surveying instruments are high-precision instruments. In order to assure that the
Electronic Total Station R-300 series product which you have purchased will
provide long-lasting maximum performance, the precautions in this manual must
be followed. Be sure to follow these instructions and use this product properly at
all times.
[Solar Observation]
WARNING

ln d
er e
la sc
br ar
an ga
a. do
cl
d
e
Never view the sun directly using the telescope as this may result in loss of
sight. Never point the objective lens directly at the sun as this may damage
internal components. When using the instrument for solar observation, be sure
to attach the special solar filter (MU64) designed for this product to the
objective lens.
[Laser Beam]
Do not stare into laser beam. R-300 is a class-II Laser product.
(The reflectorless type is a Class IIIa (3R) laser product.)
[EDM axis]
The R series EDM is the red visible laser beam and the beam diameter is very
small. The beam is emitted from the objective center and the base plate center
hole. The EDM axis is designed to coincide with the telescope sight axis but both
axes may not sometimes coincide slightly according to the intense temperature
change and time lapse.
[Target Constant]
Confirm the Target Constant of the instrument before measurement.
If a different constant is to be used, use the correct constant of the target. The
constant is stored in the instrument's memory when turned off.
[Reflectorless and Reflector sheet]
● The measurement range is determined by the white side of the Kodak Gray
Card facing the instrument and by its surrounding brightness.
There is a possibility that the range may vary when the target does not satisfy
the conditions above at survey work.
● Pay attention to following in case of distance measurement by Reflectorless.
In a situation resulting in low accuracy, perform the distance measurement by
Reflector sheet or Prism. (R-315N/R-325N/R-335N/R-322N/R-323N)
q There is a possibility that correct distance measurement may be impossible by
dispersion or reduction of laser beam when the laser beam comes into the
target from diagonal angle.
w There is a possibility that the instrument cannot calculate correctly when
receiving reflected laser beam from forth and back directions in case of
measuring the target on the road.

PRECAUTIONS REGARDING SAFETY
e There is a possibility that synthesized values are calculated and the distance
may become longer or shorter than the actual one when the operator
measure the target of slope or sphere or rugged shape.
r There is a possibility that the instrument cannot calculate correctly by
collecting the reflected laser beam from a man or a car that comes and goes
in front of the target.

● When using Reflector sheet, set the Reflector sheet to have its surface be
approx. vertical to the aiming line. If it is positioned not to be approx. right
angle, there is a possibility that correct distance measurement may be
impossible by dispersion or reduction of laser beam.
[Battery & Charger]
● Never use any battery charger other than the BC03 battery charger as this
may result in damage to the instrument.
● If water should happen to splash on the instrument or the battery, wipe it off
immediately and allow it to dry in a dry location. Do not put the instrument in
the case until it is completely dry as this may result in damage to the
instrument.
● Turn off the power when removing the battery from the instrument as
removing the battery while the power is still on may result in damage to the
instrument.
● The battery mark displayed on the instrument is only an estimate of remaining
battery power and is not completely accurate. Replace the battery quickly
when it is about to run down as the time a battery lasts on one charge differs
depending on conditions of ambient temperature, and the measurement mode
of the instrument.
● Confirm the battery level remaining before operating.
[Auto focus]
The Auto focus mechanism is very precise but will not function under every
condition. Focusing depends on brightness, contrast, the shape and size of the
target.
In such a case, press the AF button and focus on the target by operating the
Power focus key or the AF ring.
[LD POINT, Laser pointer]
When you make a correct direction using the “LD POINT”, aim the laser beam at
the wall and mark the center and then confirm the discrepancy between the
reticle center and the marked point beforehand.

● To prevent making short-circuit when removing the battery and charger from
the case and storing them, apply electrically resistant tape to the poles of the
battery. Storing the battery and charger as is may result in fire or burn injury
due to short-circuit.
● Avoid storing the instrument in places subject to extreme high, low or radically
fluctuating temperature. (Ambient temperature range during use: –20° C to
+50° C)
● Distance measurements may take longer when atmospheric conditions are
poor such as when heat shimmer is present. When storing the instrument,
always put it in its case and avoid storage in dusty location or location subject
to vibration or extreme heat or humidity.
● Whenever there is a sharp temperature difference between the instrument’s
storage and usage locations allow the instrument to adjust to the ambient for
an hour or more before use. Be sure to protect the instrument from the sun if
the location is subject to intense direct sunlight.
● During surveys for which the survey precision or atmospheric measurement
method has been defined measure the atmospheric temperature and
pressure separately and enter those values rather than using the Automatic
Atmospheric Correction function.
● The battery should be charged approximately once per month if the
instrument is to be stored for an extended period of time. The instrument
should also be removed from its case occasionally and aired out.
● In addition to these precautions, be sure to handle the instrument properly at
all times following the descriptions given in the various sections of this manual
to assure safe and proper measurements.
[Transporting and Carrying the Instrument]
● Be careful to protect this instrument from shock of impact and excessive
vibration which may result in damage during transportation and shipment.
● When transporting the instrument, always put it in the case and wrap shockabsorbing material around it and be sure it is handled as “FRAGILE”.
[Checks and Repairs]
● Always check the instrument before beginning work and check that the
instrument is maintaining the proper level of precision. Pentax bears
absolutely no responsibility for damages due to survey results obtained from
surveys conducted without an initial instrument check.
● Never disassemble the instrument, battery or charger even if you do detect an
abnormality as there is a risk of fire or electric shock due to short-circuit. If
you think the product requires repair, contact the retail outlet where you
purchased it or an authorized repair site.

The use time shortens gradually by the phenomenon of “Effect of the memory”
when the NiMH battery leaves capacity and repeats the charge. The voltage
recovers after refreshing and the use time returns normally in such a battery.
Please refresh one degree every five times of the charge.
[Refreshing]
Set the battery in the charger as well as the case of the charge. Push the
electrical discharge button. The electrical discharge lamp lights and the electrical
discharge begins.
The electrical discharge lamp is turned off when the electrical discharge ends,
the charge lamp lights, and the charge starts automatically. Leave just as it is
until the charge is completed. When the charge is completed, the charge lamp is
turned off. Detach the battery from the charger.
[Time of refreshing and charge]
Battery BP02 is discharged from the state of a full charge at about 960 minutes
and the charge is completed from the electrical discharge at about 130 minutes.
However, the electrical discharge time is proportional to the remainder capacity
of the battery. Moreover, the time required for refreshing might be different from
the above-mentioned time according to a surrounding temperature and the state
of the battery.

● The target Constant differs according to the selected target mode.
So, confirm the target mode and its Constant shown at the top screen after
changing the target.
1. (Distance measurement by Reflectorless (Non-Prism) mode)
● The measurement range is determined by the white side of the Kodak Gray
Card facing the instrument and by its surrounding brightness.
There is a possibility that the range may vary when the target does not satisfy
the conditions above at survey work.
● Pay attention to the following in case of distance measurement by Reflectorless.
In case of resulting in low accuracy, perform the distance measurement by
Reflector sheet or Prism.
● The Reflectorless “Long Range mode” can be accessed by the 007 CODE
number 521 [REF.LESS RANGE]. The measurement range of this mode is
150m and the Laser class is IIIa. This mode can be performed by selecting
the “LONG” at 1.REF.LESS RANGE.
● The CODE number 521 [REF.LESS RANGE] shows 1.REF.LESS RANGE

q There is a possibility that correct distance measurement may be impossible by

w There is a possibility that the instrument cannot calculate correctly when
receiving reflected laser beam from forth and back directions in case of
measuring the target on the road.
e There is a possibility that synthesized values are calculated and the distance
may become longer or shorter than the actual one when the operator
measures the target of slope or sphere or rugged shape.
r There is a possibility that the instrument cannot calculate correctly collecting
the reflected laser beam from a man or a car that comes and goes in front of
the target.
2. Distance measurement by Reflector sheet mode
Position the Reflector sheet whose reflecting surface faces the aiming line to be
approx. right angle when the distance is measured by it. If it is positioned not to
be approx. right angle, there is a possibility that correct distance measurement
may be impossible by dispersion or reduction of laser beam.
3. Applied measurement range by Each target mode
● (Reflectorless (Non-Prism) mode):
It can measure the distance by Reflector sheet and Prism, but the measurable
distance is less than 200m.
● Reflector sheet mode:
It can measure the distance by Prism mode, but the measurable distance is
less than 1000m.
● Prism mode:
It can measure by Reflector sheet as well.
● Reflector sheet mode and Prism mode:
It is sometimes possible to measure without reflector sheet or prism under
special conditions like in the close distance, targeting on a wall surface.
However, there is a possibility including some errors in this case, so be sure
to select the Reflectorless mode.
● The target Constant should be correctly selected and confirmed in case that
the Reflector sheet is used at the Prism mode and the Prism is used at the
Reflector sheet mode.

The speed at which light travels through the air varies depending on the
temperature and atmospheric pressure. The R-100 series is designed to measure
distances at the speed of light in order to measure accurately, Atmospheric
Correction needs to be used. The instrument is designed to correct for weather
conditions automatically if the temperature and pressure are input. Correction is
then carried out based on the following formula.
K: Atmospheric Correction Constant
P: Atmospheric pressure (hPa)

13-4 Error when no Atmospheric Correction is made
When measurement is carried out with no Atmospheric Correction (with the
settings fixed at a temperature of 15°C and an atmospheric pressure of 1013 hPa
or 760 mmHg), the Error per 100 meters in temperature and pressure will be
shown in the tables below.
● When the actual pressure is 1013 hPa (760 mmHg) and the temperature is
25°C, conducting the measurement with the temperature left at 15°C will
result in the measurement being short by 0.9 mm per 100 meters.

● Atmospheric refraction and earth curvature correction refers to correcting both
the bending of the light beam caused by atmospheric refraction and the effect
on the height differential and horizontal distance caused by the earth
curvature.
● Correction called “atmospheric refraction and earth curvature correction” is
initiated to correct error when the slope distance and vertical angle are
caused to determine the horizontal distance and the height differential, with
this instrument, the following formula is used to correct these factors.
● Calculation formula when atmospheric refraction and earth curvature
correction parameter is set to “ON”:
Corrected horizontal distance (H)
H= S (Cosα + Sinα ·
K–2
· S · Cosα)
2Re
Corrected vertical distance (V)
V= S (Sinα + Cosα · 1–K · S · Cosα)
2Re
● Calculation formula when atmospheric refraction and earth curvature
correction parameter is set to “OFF”:
Horizontal distance H' = S · Cosα
Vertical distance
V' = S · Sinα
S: Slope distance
α: Vertical angle from horizontal
K: Atmospheric refraction coefficient (0.14 or 0.2)
Re: Diameter of earth (6,370 km)

13-6 Distance Range
Generally speaking, the maximum range which can be measured varies
considerably depending on the atmospheric conditions. For this reason, the
Specifications illustrate the values for both Good and Normal weather conditions.
It is extremely difficult to judge when weather conditions are “Good” and when
they are “Normal”. With this instrument, the conditions noted below are used to
differentiate between the two situations, (Good weather conditions for surveying
are different from Normal weather conditions, and in surveying situations, cloudy
skies are considered more favorable than sunny skies.)

Weather conditions for measurement ranges are based on the following standard
values:
Normal: Visibility of approximately 20 km, with slight shimmer and moderatewind.
Good: Visibility of approximately 40 km, overcast, with no shimmer and
moderate wind.
