Maptek XR3 Laser Scanner

Versatile system
Extra long range
Accurate deliverables

Maptek XR3 laser scanner is an extra long range survey system combining fast accurate sensing, high resolution digital imagery and powerful modelling software for improving overall productivity and site safety.

The XR3 is 30% smaller and 25% lighter, with 2.5 times faster data acquisition than the earlier Maptek 8800 series. The system is protected to IP65 for reliable operation in rugged environments.

The system includes a new, improved high dynamic range panoramic camera for better digital panoramic imagery. This produces high resolution images for geotechnical analysis and high impact visualisation.

The Maptek XR3 laser scanner possesses the hallmark automated mine survey workflow favoured by surveyors, geotechnical engineers, geologists and mining engineers. Matched with dedicated software it generates accurate survey deliverables for mining, civil, and infrastructure applications.

Integrated software and hardware provide the optimal workflow. Simple setup and scan preparation makes the entire field process faster. Geotechnical engineers and geologists require less time in the field collecting data to undertake geological mapping and geotechnical analysis.

Maptek laser scanning systems can be set up on a tripod or mounted on a vehicle for stop-go or continuous survey. The Maptek XR3 laser scanner is ideal for wall stability monitoring and design conformance.

A modular design allows sites to order a configuration to suit their application.

Maptek laser scanning solutions are developed by a technology provider who understands the survey landscape and adds new, value-in-use functionality

Cold climate XR3

A new Maptek XR3 cold climate model allows operations to conduct survey and monitoring tasks for hours in extremely low temperature conditions. The XR3 has been redesigned to operate at temperatures down to -20°C, with a limited operating time below that. A removable neoprene jacket protects the laser scanner against wind chill.

The XR3 is an integral component of the Sentry cold climate monitoring system. Sentry uses laser scanning to continuously measure ground movement with extremely fine spatial resolution and accuracy. Housed in a self-contained unit with autonomous power and communications capabilities, Sentry relies on sophisticated software to monitor, analyse and report in real-time.
