Hexagon disrupts reality capture once again with its next-generation, ultra-fast Leica BLK360 laser scanner

HEXAGON

Stockholm, Sweden – Hexagon disrupts reality capture once again with its next-generation, ultra-fast Leica BLK360 laser scanner. Using the ultra-fast Leica BLK360 laser scanner, Hexagon upsets reality capture yet again. Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital reality solutions that integrates sensors with software and autonomous vehicles, has introduced the next-generation Leica BLK360, it combines two of the most sought-after requirements in reality capture: speed and efficiency.

Innovative features from Leica’s BLK series have inspired the new BLK360, which produces beautiful, photorealistic digital twins in only 20 seconds. Because of its speed, mobility, and ease of use, the new BLK360 encourages new users to introduce reality capture to new sectors and markets.

Hexagon – Leica BLK360 Imaging Laser Scanner

  • Four scan settings capture data in 7, 13, 30, or 75 seconds at 680,000 points per second
  • Rich high dynamic range (HDR) imagery with 5 bracket HDR
  • Small and light, measuring 155x80mm and weighing just 850 g with batteries installed
  • 5 times faster than the BLK360 G1, taking 20 seconds for a full-dome scan with photospheres
  • Visual Inertial System (VIS) automatically pre-registers scans in the field
  • High speed data transfer via USB-C and WiFi

Fast, accurate, and real-time data collecting is required in today’s initiatives.

Any application requiring quick, up-to-date scanning, such as digital construction or building lifecycle monitoring, will benefit greatly from the new BLK360 sensor.

It allows users to travel quickly about any location without interruption, seeing and sharing the data throughout the collection process to provide real-time access to updated digital twins, which are updated in real time.

Smart Digital Realities can be created by integrating digital and physical worlds in real time with Hexagon’s BLK360 sensor-software system.

Fast and precise reality capture procedures are made possible by the BLK360’s combination of novel scanning and image technologies.

Rapid scanning, pre-registered data, and high-speed transfer to preferred software workflows could save a BLK360 user days or weeks of valuable time, depending on the scope and scale of the project.
This data can then be uploaded to Hexagon’s online reality capture platform HxDR where users can create their own Smart Digital Realities.

Leica BLK360 Imaging Laser Scanner Features

Immersive HDR Imaging

The BLK360’s four 13-megapixel cameras capture scenes in high quality and 5-bracket HDR imaging captures all the details in challenging lighting conditions and environments, for more immersive photospheres and colorized point clouds.
VIS Scan Alignment System

Leica Geosystems Visual Inertial System (VIS) Technology, available on our RTC360 scanner, is now built into the new BLK360 to combine your scans automatically. Each scan you capture is combined with your previous scan in the field, so you’ll spend less time aligning data and more time creating valuable deliverables
Ultra-Fast Scanning

The enclosed LiDAR sensor in the new BLK360 captures point clouds at a rate of 680,000 points per second and completes a scan with spherical images in 20 seconds, with flexible scan settings to make sure you capture everything you want and need.
High-Speed Data Transfer

The USB-C port on the BLK360 gives you a faster, easier way to transfer your data, 9 times faster than the BLK360 G1. Without relying on WLAN, you’ll benefit from fast and stable data transfers.
