Leica AP20 AutoPole


The Leica AP20 AutoPole is a unique and productivity-boosting smart system for Leica robotic total stations, removing the last analogue steps in your digital survey workflow.

The easy-to-use AP20 AutoPole saves time spent onsite and reduces cumbersome post-processing corrections in the office with three powerful smart features that will transform the way you work.

✔ Tilt Compensation → measure point with a tilted pole

✔ PoleHeight → measured and applied automatically

✔ TargetID → search and lock only to the target on my pole

The conditions on your worksites can be dynamic and variable, and the AP20 AutoPole makes it easier to navigate challenges by allowing measurements with a tilted pole, providing automatic height readings and enabling target search and locking.

With the AP20 AutoPole, you can continue and complete your tasks with fewer mistakes, high reliability and higher productivity, minimising rework and delays.

The AP20 AutoPole can be operated with the following existing instruments and their future successors:

  • Robotic Total Stations: TS16, TS60, MS60, iCON iCR70, iCR80 & iCR80S (with optional controller and/or your existing prisms)
  • Controllers: CS20, CS30, CS35

Tilt Compensation

Increase productivity and efficiency with Tilt Compensation, which removes the need to level the pole. Measure and layout more points per day, conveniently and comfortably, while maintaining high job standards with control and clarity over the point quality.

The Tilt Compensation feature allows point measurements with an arbitrary aligned pole, and therefore increases flexibility and productivity in the field to enable even upside-down and nearby hidden point measurements.


Save time and eliminate mistakes from both manual height reading and manual input into the field software, which are often wrong or even totally missed. PoleHeight functionality will update the height for you automatically as the pole height changes to ensure reliable and accurate measurements.

This removes the need to read, check and enter height changes, and eliminates time consuming post-processing effort to fix incorrectly entered or forgotten target heights. Less time spent for adjustment, more time to work!


Be unstoppable using the Leica AP20 AutoPole with the TargetID feature. Automatic target search, identification and lock on your target prevents locking to foreign targets and avoids work interruptions that can occur on a busy site.

TargetID enables the total station or MultiStation to identify your target on the fly during search. This prevents locking onto other targets, especially important when there are several surveyors working simultaneously at busy locations, increasing your operative time on the pole.
