Model : P40


Leica ScanStation P40 3D Laser Scanner

The Leica P40 offers the highest versatility including long range (up to 885 ft/270m at 34% reflectivity), speed (up to 1 million points per second), and accuracy (3D positional accuracy of 3mm at 50m; 6mm at 100m). Delivering outstanding range, speed and data quality whenever and wherever needed- it’s the perfect solution for any task in 3D laser scanning.

The right choice

Whether capturing 3D geometry of civil infrastructure, creating an as-built representation of a large industry complex, reconstructing a crime scene or generating 3D data for integration into Building Information Modelling (BIM), you know you’ll need an accurate long range scanning tool for your projects – the new ScanStation P30 and P40 laser scanners from Leica Geosystems are the right choice, because every detail matters.

High performance under harsh conditions

The Leica ScanStations deliver highest quality 3D data and HDR imaging at an extremely fast scan rate of 1 million points per second at ranges of up to 270 m. Unsurpassed range and angular accuracy paired with low range noise and survey-grade dual-axis compensation form the foundation for highly detailed 3D color point clouds mapped in realistic clarity.

Reduced downtime

The extremely durable new laser scanners perform even under the toughest environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures ranging from – 20°C to + 50°C and comply with the IP54 rating for dust and water resistance.

Complete scanning solution

Leica Geosystems offers the new Leica ScanStation portfolio as an integrated part of a complete scanning solution including hardware, software, service, training and support. 3D laser scanner data can be processed in the industry’s leading 3D point cloud software suite, which consists of Leica Cyclone stand-alone software, Leica CloudWorx plug-in tools for CAD systems and the free Leica TruView.
