Topcon’s GLS-1000 laser scanner leaves nothing behind—except the competition. The operator-friendly design allows for quick and hassle-free setups which saves time and improves productivity. With batteries and data collector on-board, Topcon’s GLS-1000 is lightweight and cable-free. Transportation is a cinch. While other laser scanners take two people to unload, setup, operate, and load, the GLS-1000 is a one-man instrument.

Small size, big performance
This robust scanner sends out a laser beam that captures data at 3,000 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’s GLS-1000 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-1000 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-1000 anywhere without worrying about damaging the eyes of a passersby. The GLS-1000 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-1000 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-1000’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

GLS-1000 features also include:

  • Compact all in 1 design
  • Precise Scan Technology
  • On-board lithium ion batteries
  • Hot swappable batteries
  • Wireless Lan & USB connectivity
  • Dual axis compensators
  • 3000 points/second scan rate
  • 330m maximum range at 90% reflectivity
  • 150m maximum range at 18% reflectivity
  • 4mm @ 150m single point accuracy
  • 6” horizontal and vertical angular accuracy
  • SD card data storage
  • Horizontal and vertical jogs
Advanced technology in an operator-friendly design:

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 scanning accuracy
  • The ability to detail slight texture variations
  • Great results at ranges over 330 ft. (100m)
Wireless LAN & USB Connectivity

The GLS-1000 offers wireless LAN (802.11b) and USB 2.0 PC connection. With the GLS-1000’s built-in wireless LAN communication, you can control and collect image and scanning data on a PC from your car.

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.

On-board Lithium-ion Batteries

The GLS-1000 uses four hot-swappable batteries, two per side. With the lower power consumption of the Class 1 laser, the GLS-1000 can operate for 4 hours doing a continuous scan on one set of batteries at a temperature of 68°F (20°C).

ScanMaster Office Software
