SurvTech Solutions offers two 3D laser scanner hardware options. Please contact us to find out what is the the best laser scanner for your needs.
The Leica Scanstation is a “time of flight” scanner for long range point cloud acquisition, utilized on projects where data needs to be acquired from a distance of over 250 feet. Acquires point data at approximately 30,000 points per second at a range up to approximately 1000 feet. Typical situation would be very large buildings, bridges, towers or other structures where the scanner cannot occupy a location close to the structure. The problem with scanning from 1000 feet is that the scanners perspective is typically very narrow at that range.

The Faro Focus scanner is a “phase based” scanner used for very congested close range sites, such as industrial, chemical and power plants. Acquires point data at approximately 1,000,000 points per second at a range up to approximately 250 feet.
