FARO® Launches the Focus S Laser Scanner with IP54 Rating and In-Field Compensation for Construction BIM-CIM and Public Safety Forensics Professionals
LAKE MARY, Fla., Oct. 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety forensics and 3D solutions and services applications, announces the release of the all-new FARO FocusS Laser Scanner.
The FocusS is the newest member of FARO's popular Focus Laser Scanner product line and is available in both 150m and 350m ranges. Designed for construction BIM-CIM and public safety forensics applications, this new line of laser scanners brings together several customer-centric features such as an increased measurement range, Ingress Protection (IP) Rating of 54 for use in high particulate and wet weather conditions, an accessory bay for custom add-on devices and a built-in field compensation routine for ensuring system accuracy at all times.
"Establishing a new benchmark against the highly successful Focus3D models of the past 5 years, FARO's Research & Development Team continues to set a high standard for laser scanners. Equipped with highly advanced features in an ergonomic and durable design, the FocusS 150 and 350 are packed with today's most innovative features to maximize efficiencies for laser scanning professionals," stated Joe Arezone, Chief Commercial Officer of FARO.
With a sealed design, the FocusS laser scanner is certified to a Class 54 IP rating, featuring safeguards against intrusions such as dirt, dust, fog and rain as well as other outdoor elements which can occur in extreme scanning conditions.
To ensure confidence in accuracy, the on-site compensation feature enables users to verify the accuracy of the FocusS before each project on-site. Users can correct deviations caused during transport, carrier mishandling or incidental contact automatically on-site and a comprehensive accuracy document can be provided for each scan project.
With the integrated accessory bay, additional accessories can easily be connected to the scanner. Customers and third party developers can augment their scanning capabilities by utilizing this accessory port for future technological customization.
"Customers who have field tested our new laser scanners are truly excited about the overall capabilities, quality and affordability of the units which are unique to the market," stated Andreas Gerster, Vice President of Construction BIM-CIM & Product Design at FARO.
The FocusS Laser Scanners are available for immediate shipment. More information on FARO's FocusS Laser Scanners is available at: www.faro.com/focus
