  • 2 Days’ training with Aptella

The terrestrial 3D laser scanner Z+F IMAGER® 5016A combines compact and lightweight design with state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning surveyor technology – allowing the user to reach new levels.

  • Class leading precision measuring 2.187 million points per second
  • Absolute precision with optimised levelling via IMU integration
  • Best ever auto-registration accuracy with advanced navigation

With feature A, which stands for Advanced, the 5016 receives twice as high scan rate of up to 2.187 million points /second and more options for leveling the scanner.

Reaching new levels

The Z+F IMAGER 5016 3D Laser Scanner, combines compact and lightweight design with state-of-the-art laser scanning technology – allowing the user to reach new levels. The new phase-based laser scanner is equipped with an integrated HDR camera, internal lighting and positioning system – already proven from its predecessors, the Z+F IMAGER 5010C and the Z+F IMAGER 5010X. However, all components have been further developed and adjusted to the new design, resulting in even better scanning results and a more efficient workflow.

Rapid picture capturing

Capturing colour information is very important in many fields of application. Generating a full HDR panorama (80 MPixel) only takes about 3:30 min. – which is the shortest capturing time for integrated HDR cameras in terrestrial laser scanners on the market. Combined with quick scanning times, this allows the user to rapidly generate geometric and colour data.

Integrated LED spots

The new HDR camera of the Z+F IMAGER 5016 is now equipped with integrated LED spots, which grant additional flexibility when scanning. No more external lighting sources are necessary when capturing images in dark environments.

Internal data storage and data transfer

The scanner has internal storage capacities for 128GB of data. Data can rapidly be transferred either by using the SD-card slot, ethernet link or WiFi connection. The WiFi operates to the 802.11a/n/g standard and in the frequency range of 2.4GHz / 5GHz

Masoud Mohammadi / Structural Assessment & Health Monitoring Group Western Sydney University

“The Z+F Imager 5016 possesses several features in terms of filtering, state-of-the-art registration techniques, high-quality colourisation and efficient workflow, which truly differentiates this brand from others.”

Neil Sandford / Engineering Applications

“With the ability to develop designs based on scan data from the Z+F 5016, we have been able to fulfil the large increase in workload we’ve encountered in the last 5 years, accurately and on time.”
