Precise Scan Technology

The GLS-1500 integrates pulse-based time of flight and phase-based technologies to achieve industry leading accuracy and ”clean” scan data

The GLS-1500 inherently has:

  • Less point cloud noise
  • The most consistent scanning accuracy
  • The ability to detail slight texture variations
  • Great results at ranges over 330 ft. (100m)

Small size, big performance

This robust scanner sends out a laser beam that captures data at 30,000 points per second at a range of 500 ft. (150m) to a typical surface, and with an extended range to 1100 ft. (330m) for more reflective surfaces. Unique to Topcon GLS-1500 is the mechanical ability to select from multiple lens arrays to control the laser beam. This provides consistent 0.16 in. (4mm) accuracy throughout the range from 3 ft. to 500 ft. (1m to 150m).

Feature packed...On-board Data Collection

The GLS-1500 has an on-board data collector with an LCD display and a 21-key keyboard. This gives the scanner the freedom to function as a stand-alone laser scanner with no connection to a computer

Eye-safe and Efficient

Use the GLS-1500 anywhere without worrying about damaging the eyes of a passersby. The GLS-1500 uses an invisible, Class 1, eye-safe laser. Scan near airports, busy traffic, and populated areas with no effect to the people or the environment. In addition, the use of a Class 1 invisible laser offers the benefit of low power consumption. With lower power consumption, the GLS-1500 can operate at longer times with fewer battery changes.

Built-in 2.0 Megapixel Digital Camera

Reduce the amount of equipment needed in the field with the GLS-1500's built-in 2.0 megapixel digital camera. Collect sharp and detailed images from the scanning location, or connect to a PC with ScanMaster software, and stream a live video feed of the jobsite to aid in scan setup and data acquisition
