Features include enhanced environmental protection and in-field compensation for construction BIM-CIM professionals
The new Faro Focus S Laser Scanner is designed to capture fast, straightforward and accurate measurements of complex objects and buildings. There are two models: the FocusS 350, which offers an extra-long range of 350m, and the FocusS 150, a mid-range device offering precise scanning up to 150m. A built-in 8 mega-pixel, HDR-camera is said to capture detailed imagery while providing a natural colour overlay to the scan data in extreme lighting conditions.
With their sealed design, both models are certified via the industry standard Ingress Protection (IP) Rating, and classified in Class 54 for environmental protection. The devices are built to safeguard against intrusions such as dirt, dust, fog and rain as well as other outdoor elements which typically occur in challenging scanning conditions.
A built-in field compensation routine allows users to verify the accuracy of the FocusS before each project on-site. Users can correct deviations caused during transport, carrier mishandling or incidental contact automatically on-site and a comprehensive accuracy document can be provided for each scan project.
