Newton Labs, a world leader in manufacturing of underwater laser scanners introduces the PL4000UW. This fixed line underwater laser scanner is specifically designed for capturing high resolution metrology data deployed on ROV and AUV submersibles.
The PL4000UW expands on Newton’s high resolution laser scanning product line, perfect for underwater metrology and inspection, maintenance and repair(IMR).
“The PL4000UW increases our extensive underwater laser scanning line that already stands as the most complete product offering of underwater laser scanners in the world, ” said Eric Yates, Newton Labs’ Sales Manager. "With the PL4000UW we've produced a plug and play product that will easily integrate with industry hardware and the effort has enhanced our whole product line."
The PL4000UW produces industry standard point cloud output and uses position data from the on-board IMU as the input position data for its scans. The unit is fully factory calibrated and does not require any field calibration. For use with industry field software, the PL4000UW can output either single line point clouds or full scans as required for the application making it specifically easy to interlace with field software.
The PL4000UW easily interfaces with IMU devices, either integral to the ROV/AUV or exterior IMU systems. The scanner draws its power from the MUX or ROV/AUV and only requires 24VDC and GigEthernet from the MUX or ROV/AUV. The PL4000UW is depth rated to 4000 meters, has a 10 meter scanning range and is easily mounted on ROV or AUV submersibles.
