High-quality 3D data and fast HDR imaging
The new Leica ScanStation P50 delivers highest quality 3D data and HDR imaging at an extremely fast scan rate of 1 mio points per second at ranges of more than one kilometre, promises the manufacturer.
The ScanStation P50 combines all the well-known features of the P40 plus a longer-range scanning capability of more than 1 kilometre. Increasing users’ flexibility to offer services in new markets, this rugged and versatile laser scanner enables professionals to 3D capture even at great distances with angular accuracy paired with low range noise and survey-grade dual-axis compensation.
PROFESSIONALS CAN NOW SCAN THE INACCESSIBLE
Leica says the ScanStation P50 opens new business opportunities for reality capture professionals, helping them to scan what was previously unreachable such as big mine pits, long bridges, dams and skyscrapers. With a ‘supreme’ range, the P50 enables users to scan any tall and/or wide infrastructure or dangerous sites from a remote and safe position.
Mike Harvey, Leica Geosystems NAFTA HDS product & applications manager said customers have requested increased range so that they could capture tall structures and/or far away features without sacrificing the safety of their field crews.
“During a recent deployment of the Leica P50 in an urban setting, the extended range allowed us to capture more of a city skyline in less set-ups,” he said. “Due to the extended range, the additional data made scan registration very easy and much faster.”
