Basis Software Releases “Entry Level” Surphaser

Published: Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 15:27

(Basis Software: Colorado Springs, CO) -- Basis Software Inc., announced the release of the Surphaser Model 50HS laser scanner, the first release in an upcoming line of competitively priced long-range scanning products.

The Surphaser Model 50HSX is an entry level version of the popular ER_100HSX hemispherical scanner. The 50HS offers users a Surphaser-quality instrument at an entry-level price point ($58,000 USD) in a scalable package that can be upgraded to the ER_100HSX. Special introductory pricing will be available this month making the 50HS an even more attractive solution. With up to a 160-meter range and noise levels that are noticeably better than competing laser scanning systems, the 50HS represents a tremendous value in data-capture hardware. Best of all, the 50HS is the first in an upcoming expansion of the Surphaser product line designed to offer more competitively priced solutions for the survey- and laser-scanning markets.

Additionally, Basis Software announced the opening of a new factory in Redmond, Washington. This facility will substantially increase the production capacity and allow for full production cycle of all new Surphaser models. First introduced at last year’s Coordinate Metrology Systems Conference, the IR_100 and SR_100 offer some of the lowest noise levels of any phase shift scanner at just 25 microns (0.001 in) at 2–4 meter ranges for the SR model.

The last announcement addressed the need for collecting imagery with Surphaser scanners and introduced Basis Software’s “SurphColor” system. This camera system with a color image equivalent to 150 megapixels can be used with any model Surphaser for a high-quality color capture solution that allows for the collection of photorealistic point cloud data.
