Operator friendly, compact all in one design Offers quick and hassle free setups, which reduce the amount of time between instrument setups and improve productivity. The GLS-1000s design incorporates the use of on-board lithium ion batteries, so there is no need to carry around a bulky 12 volt battery. The aerodynamic design helps reduce the affect of wind.

Features & Benefits:

On-board data collection and storage Compact all in 1 design Precise Scan Technology Hot-swappable on-board lithium ion batteries Class 1 invisible, eye safe, pulse laser Built-in 2 mega pixel digital camera Wireless Lan & USB connectivity Dual axis compensators 3000 precise points/second scan rate 330m maximum range at 90% reflectivity 150m maximum range at 18% reflectivity 4mm accuracy from 1m to 150m 6 horizontal and vertical angular accuracy Horizontal and vertical jogs Precise Scan Technology The GLS-1000 integrates pulse-based time of flight and phase-based technologies to achieve industry leading accuracy and clean scan data. The GLS-1000 inherently has less point cloud noise, the most consistent accuracy, the ability to detail slight texture variations and great results at ranges over 100m. On-board lithium ion batteries The incorporation of on-board batteries reduces the amount of needed equipment in the field. The GLS-1000 uses four batteries two per side and these batteries are hot swappable. Class 1 invisible, eye safe, laser The GLS-1000s laser is a class 1, invisible, and eye safe laser, which allows the unit to operate at any time or place with no effect to people or the environment. Built in 2 mega pixel digital camera The 2 mega pixel digital camera allows for sharp and more detailed images. When connected to a PC, the digital camera offers live video feed of the job site, which aids in the scan setup and data acquisition. With the camera being built in this also reduces the amount of equipment needed in the field. Wireless LAN and USB connectivity The GLS-1000 offers wireless LAN (802.11b) and USB 2.0 PC connection. Dual axis compensators The use of dual axis compensators allows for more accurate instrument setups and scans. Occupy a known coordinate and backsight so traversing within one coordinate system is possible. Compensators can be turned off for tiltable mounts. 3000 precise points/second scan rate The GLS-1000s class 1 laser has a data capture rate of 3000 precise points/second--each and every shot is tiltcompensated and processed through the filter banks for fast and reliable scans of hundreds of thousands of points in just minutes. 150m/330m range The GLS-1000 scan range is 150m to a typical surface (18% reflectivity). Extended range to 330m to more reflective surfaces. 4mm from 1m to 150m single point accuracy Topcon GLS-1000 Specifications

System Performance The class 1 laser of the GLS-1000 has a single point accuracy of 4mm throughout the 150m range. Unique to
90% reflectivity: 1100' Topcons GLS-1000 is the mechanical ability to select from multiple lens arrays to control the(330m) laser beam. This Maximum Range at Specified Reflectivity reflectivity: 500' (150m) provides consistent 4mm accuracy throughout the range from 1m to 150m. 18% This ability is an advantage over single

lens competitive scanners where the accuracy changes throughout the range of the laser. Laser Scanning System 6 horizontal and vertical angle accuracy
