Teledyne Optech is has announced the release of its Polaris Terrestrial Laser Scanner. This versatile, productive and user-friendly scanner Bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor scanners, the Polaris can survey targets up to 1600 m away in long-range mode or collect up to 500,000 measurements per second in short-range mode. Its 360°×120° field of view (FOV) captures indoor panoramas from a single site, while its rugged design, light weight, and swappable batteries let it travel deep into the field.
The Polaris automatically detects its location with a built-in GNSS receiver and selects the planned survey parameters for the site — even untrained operators can execute a survey. Alternatively, operators can set up surveys in the field and resection/backsight the system using the menu-driven GUI on its touchscreen.
Polaris is a tripod-mounted laser scanners, which bridge the gap between small short-range scanners and heavier long-range scanners. Over three years in development, the Polaris is a sensor design based on Teledyne Optech’s decades of lidar experience. Excellent lidar quality paired with its robust, feature-rich Optech ATLAScan software ensures that Polaris users will be able to execute projects accurately and cost effectively. “Our goal with the Polaris TLS Series was to leverage Teledyne Optech’s amazing lidar pedigree and create a product at a price point that is accessible to a broad user base,” said Albert Iavarone, Business Unit Manager at Teledyne Optech. “The Polaris TLS Series is uncompromising in its commitment to accuracy while providing features and ranging capabilities that no other sensor in the industry can match. These features, these specifications, this workflow, this price — we think it’s all something new for the industry.”
