High-performance entry-level laser scanner introduced

Paul Boughton

Businesses can benefit significantly by offering 3D scanning presentations to customers. Laser scanning provides clients with clear and realistic visualisations which are easy to understand, enabling them to make better decisions, faster.

Suitable for a wide range of non-surveying applications, including interior and short-range uses, the latest model from Leica Geosystems offers a simplified user interface and optimised workflow, with no prior surveying knowledge or training required for operation. The ScanStation P15 is reliable, robust and suitable for a range of environmental conditions and delivers high-quality data fast.

Based on the advanced ScanStation P20, the ScanStation P15 offers the same high performance 3D scanning technology with high measurement speed and accuracy up to 40 metres at an optimised price point. The system can capture entire scenes within minutes and create highly detailed scans with overlaid images of the real 3D world bringing added value to end users. 

Commenting on the latest product, Jürgen Mayer, HDS program director at Leica Geosystems, reports, “Traditionally, the perceived complexity of scanning has been a barrier to customers looking for an easy route into the 3D world. The new Leica ScanStation P15, however, is designed to be an accessible, trusted entry-level product, combining quality with simplicity, and no specialist surveying knowledge necessary.”

The new scanner from Leica Geosystems is designed to complement existing scanning products with its high quality, short-range function. In order to achieve the advanced functionality of the ScanStation P20, upgrades will be made available in authorised Leica Geosystems technical service centres.
