New Products - Hardware

INTERGEO has once again been the major event for RIEGL to present its latest product developments.

The following new scanners were introduced at this year’s INTERGEO:

RIEGL VZ-4000: This new compact high speed, high resolution 3D VZ-Line Laser Scanner offers a wide field of view and an extremely long range of up to 4000 m. Hence, the most recent RIEGL development is perfectly suitable for operation in mining and topography. The scanner is characterized by high accuracy (15 mm), a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 200 kHz, echo digitization and online waveform processing for multiple target capability and an optional waveform data output. User friendliness is ensured by a robust and compact design, built-in camera, on-board inclination sensors, integrated L1 GPS receiver with antenna, and built-in SSD data storage media.

RIEGL VMX-450: Fully integrated Mobile Laser Scanning System in a new design which ensures excellent aerodynamics and protection of cabling. Two RIEGL VQ-450 "Full Circle" Laser Scanners, providing a scanning rate of up to 400 lines/sec and a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 1.1 MHz, are combined with an IMU/GNSS unit and assure very fast acquisition of survey-grade 3D data. Just like its sister type VMX-250, it operates in eye-safe laser class 1 and is capable of multiple targets, guaranteeing a high penetration rate of obstructions. In combination with an optional modular camera system, scan data and precisely time-stamped calibrated images can be acquired simultaneously for seamless storage and processing in the same project structure.
User friendliness is enhanced by its light weight and compact design. Therefore, it can easily be mounted and installed on various platforms (e.g. car, boat, train).

RIEGL VQ-580 Airborne Laser Scanner, especially designed for measuring on surfaces like snow and ice, delivers excellent data in snowfield- and glacier surveying. It distinguishes itself by means of a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 380 kHz and a range of up to 2350 m. The combination of echo digitization and waveform processing allows for multiple target capability. Covering a field of view of 60° with scanning rates of up to 150 lines/sec, evenly distributed high resolution point grids are achieved.

RIEGL VQ-820-G Hydrographic Airborne Laser Scanner, especially designed and excellently suited for combined land and hydrographic airborne surveying. The high-accuracy ranging is based on echo digitization and online waveform processing with multiple target capability. Laser range measurements for high resolution surveying of underwater topography, the bottom of shallow waters and riverbeds, are carried out with a narrow, visible green laser beam at 532 nm, emitted from a powerful laser source. Depending on water turbidity this particular laser wavelength allows measuring into water.
