Leica HDS4500 - The ultra-high speed scannner
The Leica HDS4500 is an ultra-high speed, phase-based, shorter range scanner. The combination of ultra-high speed scanning and shorter range make it well suited to many plant, tunneling, and architectural interior survey needs.
The Leica HDS4500 is an ultra-high speed, phase-based, shorter range scanner. Phase-based scanners utilize a continuous laser beam rather than a pulsing laser beam inherent to time-of-flight ranging systems. Continuous lasers allow ultra-high speed scanning from 100,000 points/sec to 500,000 points/sec. The speed advantage and the full 360 x 310 field of view makes the HDS4500 ideal for projects with very short time windows for field data collection and for other field-efficient needs. Ultra high-speed, shorter range scanners are increasingly proving beneficial for capturing interiors of process plants and tunnels and have shown extensive use in automotive plants and architectural applications.
