Certified for Durability

Leica Geosystems GIS hardware is put through a series of rigorous tests before it earns the title Swiss Technology. 

Our goal is to provide the most accurate tools possible. To accomplish that goal, and to make sure our tools maintain that level of accuracy, we design our gear to be rugged, durable and ready to take on extreme field conditions.


The apogeetec antenna is L1/L2 with multi-constellation support for GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo at 1 or 5 Hz.Apogeetec ensures optimisation of GNSS for use in tough conditions.

It is scalable to meet your accuracy requirements and integrates fully with RTK corrections.

Substrate makes up the patch antenna's dielectric. The distance between the patch and the ground plane determines the bandwidth.

The antenna is set in a ceramic housing and optimized to break down GNSS waves.


IP67 Rated

The Ingress Protection (IP) rating was developed by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) to create a standard of toughness.

The Leica Zeno 20 is IP67.

So what does that mean, exactly?




IP65 First number (6)- Protection against solid objects

0 No special protection
1 Protected against solid objects over 50 mm, e.g. accidental touch by a person’s hands.
2 Protected against solid objects over 12 mm, e.g. a person’s fingers.
3 Protected against solid objects over 2.5 mm (tools and wires).
4 Protected against solid objects over 1 mm (tools, wires, and small wires).
5 Protected against dust limited ingress (no harmful deposit).


Totally protected against dust.

IP67 Second number (7) - Protection against liquids

0 No protection
1 Protection against vertically falling drops of water e.g. condensation.
2 Protection against direct sprays of water up to 15o from the vertical.
3 Protected against direct sprays of water up to 60o from the vertical.
4 Protection against water sprayed from all directions - limited ingress permitted.
Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions - limited ingress.
6 Protected against temporary flooding of water, e.g. for use on ship decks - limited ingress permitted.


Protected against the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m.
8 Protects against long periods of immersion under pressure.

Warranty Exchange Program

Leica Geosystems makes sure you can treat a Zeno 20 like a tool without sacrificing accuracy.

For example, we know a Leica Zeno 20 will bake on the dash at an Arizona job site or be left overnight in the trunk in the middle of a Minnesota winter. That’s why we make sure they have a storage temperature range of - 13F° to 158F°.

With that kind of toughness built in, it is rare for a Leica Zeno 20 to have a problem, but in the unlikely event of a defect Leica Geosystems offers a one year warranty with optional extensions.
