New laser scanner boasts scan rate of 1.2 mil' points per second



Basis Software’s new 100HSX-PC is first Surphaser to ship with onboard controls, snap-on battery power supply

Basis Software, Inc. on Monday debuted its Surphaser 100HSX laser scanner for the short to medium range scanner market at the 2013 SPAR International Conference on End-to-End 3D: Capture, Process, Deliver this week in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The Redmond, Wash.-based markets its line of Surphaser laser scanners for use in reverse engineering, dimensional control, historical preservation, architecture, and forensics. It also supplies OEM products to laser scanner manufacturers.

Basis scanners said the new 100HSX offers a substantial increase over its 25HSX scanner in the practical scanning range by providing up to 130 meters of reliable distance resolution while decreasing the range noise, especially on dark surfaces.

That allows the 100HSX to generate scan rates of up to 1.2 million points per second, the company said, calling it “especially impressive given the 25HSX’s reputation for producing one of the cleanest point cloud datasets of any comparable scanning system.

The 100HSX is available in two configurations, the 100HSX-Lite and the 100HSX-PC. Both are shipped with the 100HSX Scanhead and Basis’ SurphExpress Software Suite for scanner control, data analysis and exportation.

The 100HSX-PC adds a battery adapter, two batteries, and a built-in PC for onboard control of scanning operations. The company said the 100HSX-PC is the first Surphaser to ship with onboard controls and a snap-on battery power supply.
