Capture the most accurate data possible under any conditions with the GLS-2000 innovative technology. Detect timing more accurately with the Precise Scan Technology II that incorporates waveform signal processing, enhancing the GLS-2000’s time-of-flight measurements. A multiple-lens array optimizes the collimation of the laser beam based on the test range measurement. 

Deliver better results with these industry-leading technologies.

Deliver More Complete Information

Deliver More Complete Information

No detail goes uncaptured with our customizable scan resolution defaults working in combination with dual 5mp digital cameras for collecting color imagery. Capture Reality, share, and access 3d data from field to office effortlessly. 

After processing in ScanMaster software, export your file in a broad selection of formats, including our widely accepted cl3, which supports today’s most requested design, analysis, and modeling applications. 

Building Facility Scanning

Preliminary inspection is an indispensable component of building renovation or relocation of factory equipment. The GLS-2000 quickly measures and collects precise 3D point clouds without interrupting your ongoing operations. 

Utilize high-density 3D point clouds for generating as-built drawings and for simulation of piping or equipment installation. 

Safely operate the GLS-2000 even in areas where laser emission power is restricted; simply by choosing the Low Power (Class 1M) measurement mode.
