Leica M-Com mobile communication solution

Plug and play solutions for monitoring communication

The Leica M-Com series are the first compact plug and play solutions for monitoring communication. The Leica ComBox and Leica Comgate provide the communication from the sensors in the field to the internet. To keep the monitoring system running during communication breakdowns, the optional MonBox enables Leica GeoMoS to run on-site in an integrated embedded computer.

The M-Com series offers easy installation, reliable communication, and the connection of multiple sensors and external devices. This increases the mobility for periodic or short term monitoring systems.

Leica ComGate10

  • Simple sensor connectivity via serial or USB
  • Data transmission via mobile Internet UMTS/LTE Technology
  • Communication fallback with secondary line
  • Provides sensor cold boot
  • Offers digital input / output and SMS management support

Leica ComBox10/20

  • Main components: Sensor connectivity, power supply and the wireless router
  • Outdoor Housing: Compact enclosures with a lock system and wall brackets for mounting
  • Data Transmission: GPRS/UMTS Technology
  • Messaging: Up to two warning devices can be connected and digitally switched

Leica MonBox35

  • An energy-efficient mini-industrial computer with a robust housing, running Leica Geosystems monitoring software  
  • The MonBox35 can be mounted on a frame in the Leica ComBox10/20

Leica SmartStation - Total Station with integrated GNSS

Total Station with integrated GNSS

The Leica SmartStation is a unique, high performance total station that perfectly integrates a powerful GNSS receiver. Simply set up the SmartStation and let GNSS determine the position of the total station.

With the SmartStation and versatile SmartPole, fewer setups are required, fewer control points are needed, and flexibility is maximised.

Fully integrated GNSS

With all software inside, all total station and GNSS operations are controlled via the total station keyboard. All data is stored in the same database - on the same SD card, USB stick or internal memory. All measurements, statuses and other information are displayed on the total station screen. All components are seamlessly combined where everything is integrated into one compact unit.

Position coordinates

With SmartStation you don’t need to worry about control points, traverses and resections. Just set up wherever it’s convenient and the assistant guides you through the setup. Within a few seconds, RTK determines the position to centimetre accuracy at ranges up to 50 km from a reference station. With the SmartStation you are ready to work in the shortest possible time – simply fix the position with GNSS and then survey with the total station.

Use as SmartStation or as a total station and RTK rover

With SmartStation's modular design, you can:

  • Use the equipment in any way you like
  • Use SmartStation when there are no control points available

Once SmartStation is accurately positioned, take off the smart antenna, put it on a pole, and use it with the Leica Viva CS15 or CS10 controller as a fully-fledged RTK rover.

Leica Viva SmartPole

Easily work with either GNSS or TPS

Leica SmartPole provides you with complete freedom of choice – you can easily switch between GNSS and TPS and vice-versa. Measure each point once with GNSS or TPS or quickly measure with both for TPS setup points. Simply tap an icon and the SmartPole instantly changes, giving you complete flexibility for maximum productivity.

Simply switch from GNSS surveying to TPS surveying:

On-the-fly TPS setup

  • With SmartPole, simply begin the survey and conduct setup on-the-fly whilst completing the survey
  • There is no need to measure orientation points first, saving you time in survey planning and execution

Easy-to-use software

  • Leica SmartWorx Viva has clear graphics, logical menu structures and wizards to help with more complex procedures
  • Non-technical terminology
  • Pick it up, turn it on and start working immediately

Connecting the field and office

Conveniently combine data in the field or office via wireless LAN, USB, Bluetooth® wireless technology, 3.5G mobile broadband and CF/SD-cards.


No longer is there a requirement to first measure the orientation points and then measure details points. With SmartPole, simply begin the survey. If a point can be measured with both GNSS and TPS, then this point can be used as an on-the-fly control point. Choose control points that deliver the best geometric distribution whilst simultaneously completing the survey.

The location of control points often restricts where the TPS can be placed. With SmartPole, the most convenient location can be chosen for the total station. Traversing is no longer required -  each TPS set up can be conducted independently with new coordinates and orientation being determined with SmartPole GNSS.
