Here's what Leica says about the ScanStation P50:
"Maximise productivity by scanning inaccessible places at a safe position on site, reducing time in the field with less setups.
For industry professionals looking to scan inaccessible places and find new business opportunities, Leica ScanStation P50 is the fastest and safest, long range 3D laser scanner. Unlike any other laser scanner, the P50 solution maximises productivity by scanning inaccessible places at a safe position on site, reducing time in the field with less setups.
The right choice
Whether you 3D capture the world’s tallest buildings, document the widest infrastructure objects or scan the biggest open pit mines, you know long range scanning will be essential for your job. Adding long range scanning capability to the market leading ScanStation P-series, the new Leica ScanStation P50 is the right choice, because every detail matters.
