The instrument should be set up in such a manner so that the angle between P1 and P3 becomes 90°. The distances S1 and S2 should be similar. it is optimal to choose the known points P1 and P3. 2) The inner angle between known points is extremely large.

12. ROAD DESIGN
You can use this function to calculate basic design clothoid, raised type clothoid, and central peg and width peg of simple curve, and record the coordinates by inputting and specifying each coordinate of BP,IP and EP and the elements of the curve.

WARNING
• Road calculation excludes Z coordinate values from the calculation. • Road calculation allows you to calculate up to 3,000 points in combination with number peg, plus peg and width peg. • The maximum number of points that can be processed per route is 3,000 points. When making a design for a complex route having many consecutive IP points, you may not be able to obtain your desired smooth linear shape if you calculate with an extreme and rough pitch. Also if there is a mistake of inputting coordinates or elements, it may generate the coordinates quite differently from your desired linear shape. To prevent yourself from these, we recommend you to send the generated coordinates to PC and confirm the linear shape on the monitor or printer screen before using. [Measurement point name to be selected and specified] Regarding measurement point name of each coordinate, input alphanumeric character up to three character following the character of BP, IP and EP. When more than three characters following BP, IP and EP or completely different alphanumeric characters by deleting the initial character are input, it automatically generates the point name of an existing value. This will also happen when you specify a coordinate by researching from the memory. [Generation of measurement point name] Numerical part: 3 digits and up to 001~999. Integer part of plus peg: up to 01~99. Width peg: Left width peg [L] is added at the end of the measurement point name. Right width peg[R] is added at the end of the measurement point name. NOTE: measurement point name is not processed for the additional distance.
