Used RIEGL VZ 400i 3D Laser Scanner description

RIEGL VZ 400i 3D Laser Scanner for sale, gently used in perfect condition, always well taken care of, been used on a single larger project in the past, the project is wrapped up and we no longer use it much

Sale includes RiScan Pro License to a USB dongle,  a calibrated camera system (Nikon D810) camera System, as well as everything it comes with Lightweight Carbon Tripod, Battery, Cabling, GPS Antenna, Case, etc

The RiSCAN PRO standard processing software for efficient data acquisition and registration in terrestrial laser scanning.

The Nikon D810 DSLR camera is easily integrated into the mount by means of two screws. Precise position and orientation of the camera is enabled by three supporting points. Power supply and a USB interface are provided via the scanner directly. The combination of scanner, software,and camera results in photorealistic 3D data, exact identification of details, positions, and distance measurements, as well as a re-creation of any virtual point of view. A new feature enables the acquisition of images simultaneously during scanning and thus, reduces the time for handling a scan position drastically.

The external GNSS Receiver with Bluetooth Connection to support precise global scan data registration, the RIEGL VZ-400i offers an interface for a high-end external third party GNSS receiver that is to be mounted on top of the instrument. For smooth operation in the field, GNSS data is transferred to the scanner via Bluetooth transmission or cable.

The RIEGL VZ-400i is a cutting-edge 3D Laser Scanning System which combines a future-oriented, innovative new processing architecture and internet connectivity with RIEGL’s latest waveform processing LiDAR technology.

This real-time data flow is enabled through dual processing platforms: a dedicated processing system for simulta-neous acquisition of scan data and image data, waveform processing and system operations, and a second processing platform which enables automatic on-board registration,geo-referencing, and analysis to be executed in parallel. The VZ-400i provides an integrated 3G/4G LTE modem, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet communications hardware. With its integrated orientation sensor (MEMS IMU, compass, and barometer) the VZ-400i’s up to 1200 kHz pulse repetition rate can be fully utilized in many environments and orientations. The system provides a high range of flexibility by supporting numerous external peripherals and accessories via its integrated USB ports and stable mounting points.

In order to prove the high efficiency of the VZ-400i, a total of 514 scans covering approximately 4,5 km of city center roads with adjoining buildings, mostly in pedestrian zones, were carried out by just one operator within 8 hours of working time. The night time was selected because of the reduced number of people and traffic on the road. The scanner acquired full panoramic scans with 50 millidegrees scan resolution, leading to an average of 14 million range measurements per scan. The high pulse repetition rate, in combination with the high maximum measurement range (depending on the measurement program) of several hundred meters, required the scanner to be able to solve the occurring range ambiguities with RIEGL MTA (multiple time around) processing. During this recent test, the scanner was used on a carbon tripod with new rechargeable LiPo batteries.

The operator scanned one scan position after the other, with 9 meters in between scan positions, to capture highly detailed 3D information of that area. The high number of scans in the short time frame of 8 hours could be easily performed, due to the RIEGL VZ-400i’s capability to offer an easy single touch operation workflow on its touch screen. For the subsequent automatic registration algorithm, a chain-like order of scans and a number of planar surfaces to be found within the surrounding urban area were critical to the project’s success. The rather short distance between the scan positions was chosen to eliminate most of the scan shadows on facades and roads and to ensure complete automatic registration of all laser scans.

After downloading the project within 20 minutes from the internal SSD hard disk to a laptop, all 514 scan positions were registered using RIEGL RiSOLVE into the Gauss Krueger coordinate system in about 8 hours. The entire stream-lined process is the fastest solution to acquire and register outdoor 3D scan data and enables rapid turnaround of critical information.
