Monitoring systems utilising automated electronic total stations are an important element of controlling safety levels of numerous engineering structures. In order to ensure appropriate credibility of the obtained data, it is crucial to maintain the stability of both the parameters of the used instrument as well as of its setup. This study presents the results of research on the stability of the Leica TCRP1201+ instrument’s basic parameters and three selected tripods manufactured using different materials. In the case of the total station the inspected values included Hz-collimation, V-collimation, and tilt compensation errors. Two of the head tilt components and torsion were examined for each of the tripods. The research was carried out in three-day sessions in conditions of large temperature fluctuations. Graphs presenting the changes in the studied values were supplemented with analysis of correlation between the said changes and the changes in temperature. The conclusions section of the study includes suggestions on how to avoid the negative effects of changes in the geometry of the measuring device.
