Leica Geosystems Introduces New 3D Laser Scanner

Leica Geosystems AG has introduced a new 3D laser scanner, the ScanStation P15. Combining high performance scanning with a user-friendly interface, the ScanStation P15 is the ideal entry into the world of 3D laser scanning. Businesses can benefit significantly by offering 3D scanning presentations to customers. Laser scanning provides clients with clear and realistic visualisations which are easily 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 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 canStation P20, Leica Geosystems' 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 ScanStation P15 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.

Leica Geosystems Holdings AG Unveils Leica ICON gps 80 Machine Control Receiver

Leica Geosystems Holdings AG announced that it has unveiled Leica iCON gps 80, a GNSS receiver developed for a range of machine control applications to increase positioning performance on all construction equipment. It easily and safely fits into any construction machine cabin, communicates seamlessly with all iCONtrol solutions on site and integrates iCON telematics fleet management software. Flexible communication provides smooth integration with equipment and solutions for OEM partners that require a reliable GNSS position. Return on the investment of construction equipment depends on machine productivity and uptime, regardless of the application. The robust, accurate and reliable positioning of the new iCON gps 80 GNSS receiver helps operators complete jobs faster by saving material and fuel costs in many earth and road work activities. The future proof GNSS receiver using xRTK technology is designed to provide accurate positions, even in the harshest environments, and reliable guidance, where none was possible before. The new iCON gps 80 integrates components such as a built-in display requiring no separate controller, a built-in modem and radio requiring no additional radio devices and a robust GNSS-optimised CAN bus system resulting in faster communication between control system and machine. All iCON gps 80 models are extremely compact and fit in any machine cabin quickly and easily. Remote access via the web-based Leica iCON telematics software provides quick data transfer as well as service support thus increasing machine uptime. As a new member of the iCONtrol pillar, the iCON gps 80 delivers a flexible solution for on-machine applications using the iCONstruct sensor portfolio. This allows reliable and seamless sensor communication, streamlined workflows and data handling. In addition, the sensor can be used as a GPS base station to provide reliable GPS correction data. The Leica iCON gps 80 fits perfectly with iCON solutions and brings maximum benefits as well as supporting open standards for a variety of systems. The receiver easily integrates into different platforms due to its flexible communication setup and brings higher return on investment.
