Meanwhile, at the Hexagon 2011 Conference, Leica Geosystems announced the new Leica ScanStation C5 Laser Scanner for fast, complete as-built and engineering surveys. The compact, scalable Leica ScanStation C5 provides professionals with a combination of legendary Leica Geosystems quality scan data with a significantly lower cost of scanner ownership. These advances not only address today’s scanning professionals, but also address organisations wanting to enter into laser scanning to diversify and/or improve their current business.
Leica ScanStation C5 is a fully integrated, cable-less system. The scanner has an easy-to-learn onboard interface with high-resolution, colour touch screen and integrated, high-resolution zoom video. It features a laser plummet and tribrach mount and interfaces to standard survey accessories such as TPS batteries, total station prisms, and even the Leica GPS SmartAntenna. Thus, even professionals new to High-Definition Surveying (HDS) will find it easy to learn and work with the Leica ScanStation C5.
