FARO Technologies, a source for 3D measurement, imaging, and realization technology, has released the Focus3D X 130 laser scanner.

The Focus3D X 130, the newest member of Focus3D X Series range of laser scanners, delivers tremendous power, compact design, and the flexibility to perform laser scanning in both indoor and outdoor environments. With a scanning range of 130 meters, this laser scanner is ideal for midrange scanning applications such as architecture, construction, civil engineering, facility management, forensics, historical preservation, industrial manufacturing, and shipbuilding applications.

The portable Focus3D X 130 enables fast, straightforward, and accurate measurements of objects and buildings. Combining the highest-precision scanning technology with true mobility and ease of use, this new device offers reliability, flexibility, and real-time views of recorded data. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing. These advances in performance do not come at the expense of safety because the Focus3D X 130 comes with a class 1 “eye safe” laser.

“The touch-screen of the Focus3D X 130 is as easy to operate as a smart phone,” says Ralf Drews, managing director of FARO Europe. “With a battery runtime of 4.5 hours, the laser scanner also has a high level of flexibility and endurance. The Focus3D’s light weight, small size, and SD-card storage capability makes it truly mobile. We can offer this quality at prices which are certainly unique to the market.”

With the introduction of Focus3D X 130, FARO offers its customers a choice between the midrange Focus3D X 130 (130 meters) and long-range Focus3D X 330 (330 meters) laser scanners with the best technology and at the most affordable price in the market.
