Reigl USA Introduces Long Range 3D Scanner

Reigl USA announces the introduction of the LMS-Z360 3D image scanner with new long range capabilities combined with increased accuracy and fields of view.

The Riegl LMS-Z360 is known as "two scanners in one" because of its incorporation of long range and high accuracy systems, reducing the need of using multiple instruments at the jobsite. The Z360's expanded horizontal and vertical field of views provide high speed scanning capabilities common in the Riegl 3D scanner product line.

Offering 360 degree horizontal and 90 degree vertical scanning angles, the LMS-Z360 captures 3D surface geometry of complex structures with speed, accuracy and timesavings. Surface geometry of surfaces is remotely captured in minutes in the form of dense 3D point clouds that can be exported to commonly used software packages for post-processing. The large scanning angle dramatically decreases the number of scans needed to be taken in the field and provides the operator the ability to take in more of the scene while still in the same coordinate system.

The LMS-Z360 comes complete with an array of software used for sensor configuration, data acquisition, visualization, manipulation and archiving.

With the introduction of this new scanner, applications that would commonly require two or more different pieces of equipment are now easily completed with the LMS-Z360. For example, the instrument may be used for a very detailed as built of a historic facade as well as a high speed topographic survey scans of land that involve collection of a large number of coordinates.

The scanner replaces traditional labor-intensive surveying methods by delivering dimensionally correct 3D images. Benefits include: lower cost asbuilt and topographic surveys; elimination of multiple jobsite visits; accurate asbuilts for retrofit design projects; fewer construction problems and the ability to factory-fabricate, reducing costs.
