Leica Geosystems releases laser scanner and companion software
December 1, 2006
Leica Geosystems released the HDS6000 laser scanner and Cyclone SCAN v5.6, the companion software for controlling the new scanner. The HDS6000 features several major advances compared to the Leica HDS4500 scanner: 50% greater range, based on ambiguity interval; new compact design with scanner, scan control panel, data storage and battery integrated into a single unit; new tilt compensation that allows traversing and resectioning; three scanner control options; higher accuracy for each single point measurement; and twice the maximum scan density. The HDS4500 also features a full field-of-view (360Âº x 310Âº) design and a scan speed up to 500,000 pts/sec, which increases field productivity by reducing the number of separate scan targets needed during a high-definition survey.
