Newton Labs Underwater Laser scanner M3200UW
The Newton M3200UW Lidar is a 3200m rated Underwater Laser Scanners capable of capturing sub-millimeter measurement for subsea metrology and IRM analysis.
The Newton M3200UW Lidar is a 3200m rated Underwater Laser Scanners capable of capturing sub-millimeter measurement for subsea metrology and IRM analysis. Deployment of the scanner head is designed for ROV/AUV deployment and has simple mounting holes on the back panel and the connecting arms. The Newton Labs M3200UW Lidar can operate with a fixed laser line and IMU data as well as the standard internal high resolution scanning. The laser operates by triangulation sweeping the target and the high resolution camera records any deformation of the beam as a point cloud.
The scanner target range is from 0.5m to 5.0m for a scan coverage area of 3.28m x 4.12m. The system measures underwater targets up to an accuracy of +/- .02mm.
The Scanner software can capture much larger target areas by combining several point clouds together in post processing to form larger composite images. Operators may select from several levels of scan quality. The shortest, coarse scan takes 15 seconds; the longest and most detailed takes about 90 seconds. For visual observation mode, the live camera view provides coverage of the area to be scanned. The camera transmits a live image to the control console screen.
