Leica Geosystems is offering a broad spread of new packages and hardware that will deliver improved performance to users.

The firmware 2.0 product is said to add powerful new capabilities to the 265 Leica ScanStation C10, the industry's most popular 3D laser scanner for as-built and topographic surveys. This further increases the productivity and versatility of the fully integrated, cable-less ScanStation C10. A new Setup facility lets users take advantage of known survey points and backsighting, while remote, WiFi handheld control through standard Leica CS10 or CS15 controllers provides added field flexibility when onboard display or laptop control are inconvenient or impractical. In addition, field photo checking of images taken by the C10's embedded camera can be made on the spot, while a check backsight tool lets users check on-the-spot to see if the scanner moved during a setup.

The Leica Zeno GIS series continues to grow with the addition of the new Zeno 10 3.5G and Zeno 15 3.5G new dual-constellation, network-enabled handheld GNSS receivers and the newest Zeno Field v1.2 software. Designed for GIS data collection and mapping applications, the Zeno 10 3.5G and Zeno 15 3.5G integrate built-in communications, an open operating system, and a powerful GNSS receiver. The dual-constellation receiver, 3.5G modem and Windows handheld are combined into a small, reliable and powerful package.

The Leica Zeno Field software is an OEM version of 212 esri ArcPad 8 and provides - in addition the complete ArcPad functionality. This delivers a full range of functions to control the integrated GNSS receiver and to manage the data collection process such as GNSS raw data logging, easy handling of GNSS real-time configurations, feature accuracy management, and an automated workflow between the field and office. The Zeno Field package also supports shortcut keys to capture points by simply pressing a button on the keypad, 2362 Bluetooth devices such as laser rangefinders and cablefree connect to the Leica Viva GS15 and Viva GS10 GNSS receivers.

And the new Leica Viva TS15 robotic imaging total station is said to deliver advanced imaging functionality combined with dynamic tracking capabilities, as well as the latest Leica SmartWorx Viva onboard software. The Leica Viva TS15 adds a high-resolution camera as well as image assisted surveying and documentation. Live streaming of the total station view on the robotic controller allows remote point to be measured with the new tap, turn and measure functions. A new image capture tools means users can take high-resolution images of the surveying scene or even capture any screen shown on the display.

Photo documentation of site conditions helps optimise productivity and minimise the risk of costly re-visits.
