Topcon GLS-2000 Scanner Update Enhances Data Capture for Vertical Construction Applications

LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S./ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands – Topcon Positioning Group announces a new firmware update for the GLS-2000 scanner designed to enhance its vertical construction applications, as well as offer a workflow for semi-automated modeling and construction validation. The firmware includes a new setting that allows objects for interior vertical construction to be captured with precise detail. 

 “The new digital-construction-ready feature named ‘Close High Power’ is perfect for vertical applications and provides detailed data of HVAC, pipes and highly metallic objects needed for interior modeling,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products.

The data captured with the new settings is designed for seamless integration in vertical construction software workflows.

 “With the new feature, operators can easily capture detailed information in the field, process in MAGNET Collage and use the cloud data in ClearEdge3D Edgewise or Verity software,” said Kerwin. “This integration completes an optimized end-to-end workflow — from the GLS-2000 hardware to software — for semi-automated modeling and construction validation.”

 Additional features include the ability to scan and target the Topcon ATP series robotic prisms on job sites, which allows operators to sight from any angle without walking to turn the prism, as well as 30 percent faster target scanning.

 The firmware upgrade is available for all GLS-2000 models.
