Leica ScanStation C5 - The scalable laser scanner
Entry-level laser scanner with Leica Geosystems quality and flexibility
The Leica ScanStation C5 is the only scanner where users can start with excellent entry-level capabilities and add additional features over time - all the way up to the highest set of capabilities packed into any single laser scanner instrument. Users can take advantage of surveyor-friendly, onboard total station-like control or use an external laptop for even more powerful, onsite viewing and data processing.
Leica ScanStation C5 starts with all-in-one portability, a full 360º x 270º field-of-view, high accuracy, low-noise scan data, good range (35m @5% reflectivity), and high scan speed (25k pts/sec). Users can add premium features onto the very same platform for even greater versatility.
Leica ScanStation C5 can be used for fast, full dome scans, under four minutes for a typical room. It also conducts general 360º and focused area scans fast, can be quickly set up & moved, lets users locate targets, register & geo-reference fast and lets users quickly check scan results. Users can also add premium features for even greater productivity.
Low cost of ownership
In addition to ScanStation C5’s low, entry-level price point, it’s easy to learn, with a total station-like interface and intuitive, onboard graphic colour touchscreen display. It’s also incrementally upgradeable over time, uses standard total station batteries and its cable-free design features fewer accessories – all contributing to an even lower cost of ownership.
Familiar, total station-like interface
Leica ScanStation C5 supports standard laser scanning workflows with a rich, familiar total station interface and easy to learn touchscreen operation.
Integrated real-time streaming video with zoom
For fast, accurate selection of the scene and targets to be scanned. As an add-on option, the auto-adjusting, internal, high-resolution camera image can also be used for texture mapping of point clouds.
Smart X-Mirror™ design
The mirror automatically spins for fast 360º and full dome scans and oscillates for efficient, targeted scans. The same Smart X-Mirror automatically aligns the internal digital camera.
Compatibility with standard surveying equipment
Attach handles with Leica Geosystems GPS SmartAntenna or prism holder, or use without handle for unobstructed overhead scans. A built-in laser plummet and tribrach mount provide added compatibility with standard field procedures and accessories.
