The Focus S Series consists of three laser scanners with different ranges: Focus S 350/350 Plus for long-range measurements up to 350m, Focus S 150/150 Plus for mid-range measurements up to 150m and Focus S 70, perfectly suitable for short-range measurements up to 70m.

 

LASER SCANNER FOR FAST AND EXACT INDOOR AND OUTDOOR MEASUREMENTS IN THREE DIMENSIONS: SIMPLY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

FARO's latest ultra-portable Focus S Laser Scanner series enable you to capture fast, straightforward and accurate measurements of complex objects and buildings. The intuitive touch-screen of the Focus S models has been increased in size and clarity to deliver an extraordinary user experience. A built-in 8 mega-pixel, HDR-camera captures detailed imagery easily while providing a natural color overlay to the scan data in extreme lighting conditions. Familiar traits such as light weight, small size and a 4.5-hour battery runtime per charge makes the Focus S Laser Scanner truly mobile for fast, secure and reliable scanning.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Features:

Accuracy and Range: The Laser Scanner Focus Series provides the highest accuracy and ranges up to 350m by using a combination of the most advanced sensor technologies.

Adaptable and Quick: Document any project site or scene, whether indoors or outdoors, in bright sun or in complete darkness in minutes. Customize settings to adapt to any scene and capture up to 976,000 points/sec.

On-Site Compensation*: With the on-site compensation functionality users can verify and adjust the Focus compensation on-site or in the office immediately before scanning, ensuring high-quality scan data and traceable documentation. A comprehensive compensation document is automatically generated.

On-Site Registration*: During on-site data capture, the laser scanner immediately transmits scan data wirelessly to FARO SCENE for real-time scan processing and registration, providing efficiency and time savings.

Scan Group Feature (Rescanning of Distant Targets): The Scan Group feature identifies multiple areas to be rescanned with higher resolution to either perform accurate target detection or to capture with greater detail.

Retake Photos Option: No need to redo entire scans. Select images to retake photos in seconds.

Lightweight and Small Size: Weighing only 4.2 kg the Focus Laser Scanner is extremely  portable.

HDR Photo Overlay: With the Focus HDR functionality, challenging lighting situations will never subtract users’ scan results. Predefined HDR profiles increase the picture quality recorded in very bright or dark environments.

Digital Hashing Function: The automatic digital hashing feature provides encrypted security to all raw scans by hashing data at the time of capture. Use the Scan Verification Tool to ensure the scan files have not been altered in any way and data is unchanged since first captured.

Status Indicator*: The visual indicator provides the status of the laser scanner for improved on-site safety.

* Offered for Focus S series only

 

WHAT ARE THE FUNCTIONS OF HDR?

The HDR laser scanner models record HDR imagery. HDR means high dynamic range and is a technique to capture images with multiple exposure rates and merging them into a single HDR image layer. This HDR image provides additional details in dark or bright areas, which would have been lost in a standard image. These HDR images will be mapped onto the point cloud data generated by the laser scanner.

Main benefits:

  • Reliable life-like visualization, even under extreme lighting conditions and large distance
  • Safe and fast as-built data capturing with superior colour detail
  • Reduced complexity by integrated scanning and imaging workflow for all kinds of scanning tasks
