Topcon GLS-2000

3D Laser Scanner GLS-2000


Multiple range laser scanner for wide range of applications


Three models are selectable for different applications by the measuring ranges
Distance measuring range is adequately selectable for applications from short distances, such as facility or interior measurement, to as-build measurement in civil engineering sites and for larger structures.

TOF measurement with improved speed
TOF measurement, with quality data with less noise, is further enhanced with ultra high-speed direct sampling technology, resulting in quick and accurate measurement.

Easy and intuitive on-board control software
With the on-board control software, the scanning can be simply started with one-touch of button. Together with color graphical display, scanning operation can be intuitively proceeded.

Dual camera
Equipped with dual camera, 170° wide angle camera (5 megapixels) and 8.9° narrow angle camera (5 megapixels) which is arranged in coaxial with the measuring axis. The wide-angle camera obtains images at high speed.

5 types of measurement mode supported
The GLS-2000 provides a wide range of measuring modes to accommodate different job site demands to achieve accurate and increased productivity regardless of site conditions.

First pulse/ last pulse selection
Depending on the location of the objects, a single emitted pulse from the instrument may be reflected partially by front objects and the object in the back, and received by the instrument as multiple reflected beams. The GLS-2000 can recognize the “first pulse” and “last pulse” under such situation and offers first/last pulse selection to be taken as measuring result.
This technology is quite effective, especially on job sites where there are trees or fencing in front of the object to be measured.

Direct Instrument Height Measurement
The GLS-2000 has an exclusive function that accurately measures the instrument height with a one-touch operation, enabling accurate point cloud measurement.

“Precise Scan Technology II” providing high quality point cloud data with reduced noise

The quality of point cloud data is further improved with the “Precise Scan Technology II” which provides much less noise and high precision and therefore clean up work of data in the post processing can be greatly reduced.

The GLS-2000 emits pulse signals three times faster than the previous model. This fast pulse signal has a clear signal wave form, and the signal timing can be detected more precisely in signal processing, which brings highly accurate measurement results.
The GLS-2000 also employs an ultra high-speed ADC (analog-digital converter) with a newly developed direct sampling technique, that enables the extraction of a clear signal wave which is used in the measurement process.

Supporting various registration methods
The GLS-2000 can execute field work similar to that of total stations by supporting various registration methods.

  • Traverse
  • Tie-point
  • Shape matching
