The FARO FocusS 70 is a high-accuracy, short-range scanner specifically designed for architecture, engineering, construction, product design and public safety-forensics professionals.

Similar to the FARO FocusM 70 introduced in January, the FocusS 70 delivers industrial-grade performance with what FARO touts as an exceptional price/performance ratio. This includes an Ingress Protection (IP) Rating of 54 for use in high particulate and wet weather conditions, HDR imaging and extended temperature range. Additionally, users will continue to have unrestricted freedom of choice to leverage the software tools most beneficial to their own workflow, including FARO SCENE and 3rd party software solutions such as Autodesk ReCap.

The FARO FocusS 70 also delivers a set of incremental, value-added functionality for applications that require the short-range scanning power of the FocusM 70, the next-level accuracy of the FocusS 150 or FocusS 350, and the power of real-time, one-site registration.

The scanner is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications that require scanning up to 70 meters and with accuracy of +/- 1 millimeter. It delivers acquisition speed of almost 1,000,000 points per second. The FARO FocusS 70 supports the real-time, on-site registration functionality recently announced by FARO with the introduction the SCENE 7.0 software suite.

The 3D scan data, whether it be from a single scan or multiple scans in process simultaneously, can be wirelessly transmitted (i.e., no SD cards needed) directly to an onsite computer workstation/PC in real time.
