Topcon GLS-2000 update enhances vertical capture applications

By on 27 November, 2018

A new firmware update for the Topcon GLS-2000 is aimed to enhance its data capture capabilities for vertical construction applications.

According to the firm, the upgrade enables a new setting on the scanner that ‘allows objects for interior vertical construction to be captured with precise detail.’

“The new digital-construction-ready feature named ‘Close High Power’ is perfect for vertical applications and provides detailed data of HVAC, pipes and highly metallic objects needed for interior modeling,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products.

According to the firm, additional features in the update include the ability to scan and target the Topcon ATP series robotic prisms on job sites, which allows operators to sight from any angle without walking to turn the prism, and 30 percent faster target scanning.
