With the Settop M1 monitoring controller connected to a Trimble total station, you will have the capability to quickly set up for any monitoring applications and receive reliable continuous data for decision-making and reporting requirements.

Working in conjunction with Trimble 4D Control software, the Settop dependably transfers data from the total station into T4D to give you the data you need for monitoring in mining, buildings, dams and other structural monitoring applications.


The Settop M1 monitoring controller delivers high-quality continuous data from a Trimble Total Station for automated monitoring projects. It benefits monitoring projects by:

  • 24/7 total station control and scheduling for automated measurements
  • Continuous power supply and management for total station for real-time control
  • Embedded 4G LTE modem and WiFi Access Point to send data to Trimble 4D Control
