Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands, October 10, 2007: Topcon Europe Positioning (The Netherlands) introduces its new laser scanner, the Topcon GLS-1000 which handles like a total station but delivers a total scanning solution.
The GLS-1000 scanner is easy to use and functions and operates stand-alone without the headaches of laptops, cables and heavy batteries. It was developed internally by Topcon and designed for the site. Thus it can also work in harsh or bright jobsites because no PC is required, with the help of internal memory and batteries.
Users can specify the scan area with jog shuttles control, work with an on board control panel to store data in the easy accessible SD card. The SD card allows users to transfer and check the data on a PC while in the field if required. The inbuilt Wi-Fi allows PC connection if more detailed control or checking is required while scanning. In contrary to existing laser scanners, the GLS-1000 is equipped with exchangeable internal batteries and a control panel.
