Laser Scanner

A portable non-contact measurement system to accurately capture 3D data.

  • Introduction

    FARO Photon Laser Scanner

    The Photon 120: Large Scale Scanning at its Fastest

    Finally – A high-speed 3D scanner for full-detail survey and documentation! Utilizing non-contact laser technology, the FARO Photon generates highly detailed three-dimensional replicas of complex environments and geometries in a matter of minutes. Photon recreates the real world and defines it within a virtual space. The resulting image is a collection of millions of 3D measurements, providing an accurate digital representation of as-built or as-is conditions. Capable of scanning at the blistering rate of 976,000 points-per-second and a maximum reach of 120m, the Photon 120 offers the most efficient method for documenting conditions in three dimensions.

    FARO Laser Scanner LS

    A portable non-contact measurement system to accurately capture 3D data. The system rotates 360° and measures everything within its line of sight up to 120m away. With a scan rate of 976,000 points per seconds and an accuracy of up to ±2mm it can be used in a wide range of industries.
