In 2016, Zoller + Fröhlich presented a new generation of laser scanners which allows beginners and expert professionals alike to reach new levels in their projects. The IMAGER 5016 has been given a fresh, new design, becoming 30% smaller and 30% lighter than the Z+F IMAGER® 5010X. The ergonomic streamline design features a passive cooling system, IP54 rating and two handles for better grip while carrying and during set-up, plus much easier mounting of the scanner on high tripods and overhead applications. The maximum range of the new Z+F IMAGER® 5016 has been extended to up to 360m (1,180ft), thus establishing new opportunities and applications. The maximum measurement rate of more than 1 million points/second guarantees highly accurate results even across long distances. Due to 50% less range noise, the scanner can now scan faster than before without compromising quality and accuracy of the resulting point cloud.
The new Z+F IMAGER® 5016 series includes all the powerful features of the 5010 series, including an integrated high-definition HDR camera which has been extended with four bright LED spots to shed light into the darkest scenes for perfect colour imagery. It also features the unique Z+F scan positioning system, which allows real-time registration of scan data directly in the field to guarantee a complete and successful project. Even though the system has an implemented GPS receiver, the scan positioning system also works indoors, independent of satellite coverage. The scanner is classified as ‘eye-safe’ according to laser class 1 and can therefore be used in public areas without any restrictions.
