all new Leica Geosystems MS60 MultiStation for 2020

Post by G_Sharp_Leica »

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 18 February 2020) – Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, announced today the new Leica Nova MS60. The MS60 MultiStation, brings sensor fusion to the next level by combining upgraded faster 3D laser scanning capabilities, GNSS connectivity and digital imaging with a highest-end total station.

The new MS60 features several laser scanning updates, including an incredibly fast scanning speed of up to 30,000 points per second, optimised scan area definitions, adapted scan managements, and an improved scanning path for zenith scans. The MS60 is also equipped with the unique AutoHeight feature, enabling users to save time by automatically measuring the instrument’s height with a simple button press. Measurement professionals can make decisions directly in the field performing point cloud analysis, such as flatness analysis and as-built checks in the Inspect Surface app of the MS60.

Hi Graham, saw this on LinkedIn earlier today. Looks like a big improvement on the previous generation. Can you talk a bit more about what you mean by "up to" 30,000 points per second? More specifically what's the typical scan rate, or typical scan rates for given accuracies, ranges and/or scan window sizes?

Like all scanners this will be the pulse rate for the shortest distances. double the distances double the scan time. you can't change the laws of physics

I heard there is also a horizontal scanning mode for floorplans.

A truly versatile instrument

Would love to see an "MS17" .. lower specs accuracy-wise (dual-comp not quad, 3", etc) .. half the price. It is unrealistic to give all of our teams a $100k+ instrument.

+ auto-height
+ faster image capture (out-of-band buffered transfer to storage? currently far too slow to capture a pano every station)
+ connection over cellular to mitigate constant connection issues
+ 100,000+ pps

Then everyone could have a chance at being a #multisurveyor. Perhaps a little cruel, but I was underwhelmed. Is there another one coming??

30,000pt/s...
at the time BLK360 does 36,000pt/s
Also looking at the data sheet, is it safe to say it is still a pulse based scanner yet greatly improved on the speed...?

Amazing stuff
