Topcon Positioning Group is releasing three new models to the GLS line of laser scanners — the GLS-2000S, GLS-2000M and GLS-2000L. The scanners are designed to capture data based on the measurement range needs of specific applications.

“These new GLS-2000 scanners offer purposeful solutions and versatility that comes from the multiple measurement modes with each model,” said Charles Rihner, vice president for the Topcon GeoPositioning Solutions Group. “The S model is optimized for short-range applications, while the M and L models are perfect for medium and long-range measurement fields, respectively.”

Using Topcon Precise Scan Technology II, the GLS-2000 models are designed to emit pulse signals three times faster than earlier GLS systems. “Using faster pulse signals enables timing to be detected more precisely, which results in reduced noise and higher-accuracy data,” Rihner said.

Additionally, the systems feature dual 5MP cameras, including one with a 170-degree wide-angle lens for high-speed imaging, as well as an 8.9-degree telephoto camera that is coaxial with the measuring axis.

When paired with Topcon ScanMaster software, the models provide complete systems for capturing and processing 3D point cloud data.

Topcon is exhibiting this week at the INTERGEO trade show, in Hall 6, Booth A6.002.
