Long range scanners area capable of capturing the geometry of large spaces in a single scan. Multiple scans are combined to recreate the environment in point cloud format. The point cloud is then further processed for different purposes.
Here is a partial list of long range tripod scanners that are available on the market for purchase with some information regarding each model:
FARO Focus3D X
The X-series laser scanner FARO Focus3D X 130 HDR is a powerful high-speed 3D scanner delivering realistic and true-to-detail scan results. With a battery runtime of 4.5 hrs, the laser scanner has also a high level of flexibility and endurance. The Focus’ light weight & SD-card makes the scanner truly mobile.
FARO Focus3D X 330 HDR
The FARO Focus3D X 330 HDR is, a high-speed 3D scanner with extra-long range. Scanning objects up to 330 meters away even in direct sunlight, delivering highly accurate scans. With a GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying based applications.
FARO Focus3D X 30
The new FARO Focus3D X 30 is a profitable tool for short-range 3D documentation applications. One million points/second scanning rate, ease-of-use, portability, scanning ranges up to 30m, very low noise as well as WLAN remote control make it a universal tool for various kinds of working environments.
The V-Line 3D Laser Scanner RIEGL VZ-400 provides high speed, non-contact data acquisition using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast scanning mechanism. High accuracy laser ranging which allows for superior measurement capability even under adverse conditions and the evaluation of multiple target echoes.
The line scanning mechanism is based upon a fast rotating multi-facet polygonal mirror, which provides fully linear, unidirectional and parallel scan lines. The RIEGL VZ-1000 is a very compact and lightweight surveying instrument, mountable in any orientation and even under limited space conditions.
The terrestrial laser scanner system RIEGL LMS-Z620 consists of a high performance long-range 3D scanner, the accompanying operating and processing software RiSCAN PRO, and a calibrated and accurately orientated and mounted high-resolution digital camera.
The Leica HDS4400 mine scanning system offers all the benefits of laser scanning in a convenient, easy-to-learn and highly productive package. It’s High-Definition SurveyingTM (HDSTM) for the mining industry.
The “next-generation” Leica HDS6100 significantly reduces field costs and increases phase-based data quality for many types of as-built and site surveys where users want to take advantage of ultra-high speed, phase-based laser scanning.
Leica ScanStation P15
The Leica ScanStation P15 achieves an extremely fast million points per second scan rate and delivers the highest quality possible 3D data for scans with ranges of up to 40m. It has best-in-class angular measurements and tilt compensation, making it perfectly suited for quick and accurate as-built surveys.
Leica ScanStation C10
The Leica ScanStation C10 is the new standard for pulsed scanners. Compact and all-in-one, The ScanStation c10 contains a scanner, battery, controller, data storage and video camera. In addition, it featured major advantages in productivity, versatility and easy-to-use platform for HDS.
Z+F IMAGER 5010C
