Teledyne Optech is offering a new Optech Polaris TLS Series of tripod-mounted laser scanners, which bridge the gap between small, short-range scanners and heavier, long-range scanners.

“Our goal with the Polaris TLS Series was to leverage Teledyne Optech’s amazing LiDAR pedigree and create a product at a price point that is accessible to a broad user base,” says Albert Lavarone, business unit manager at Teledyne Optech. “I’m excited to share this solution with the industry. The Polaris TLS Series is uncompromising in its commitment to accuracy while providing features and ranging capabilities that no other sensor in the industry can match.”

The Polaris is a sensor designed by surveyors for surveyors, based on Teledyne Optech’s decades of LiDAR experience. Launching with three distinct models at separate price points and a multitude of options and features, the Polaris promises to bring Teledyne Optech’s renowned LiDAR quality to all applications. Reliable LiDAR quality paired with its robust Optech ATLAScan software ensures that Polaris users will be able to execute projects accurately and cost effectively.

The Polaris TLS Series includes three models: the TLS-250, TLS-750 and TLS-1600. Deliveries will begin in Q1 2017.
