The FocusS Series consists of three laser scanners with different ranges: FocusS 350/350 Plus for long-range measurements up to 350m, FocusS 150/150 Plus for mid-range measurements up to 150m and FocusS 70, perfectly suitable for short-range measurements up to 70m.

With their sealed design, all S Laser Scanner models are certified via the industry standard Ingress Protection (IP) Rating, and classified in Class 54 for environmental protection. The devices are built to safeguard against intrusions such as dirt, dust, fog and rain as well as other outdoor elements which typically occur in challenging scanning conditions. An extended temperature range allows scanning in extreme environments, like deserts. In addition the laser scanners offer a future-proof interface to connect additional accessories to the scanner and provide a specific on-site compensation routine.

When the FocusS is connected to FARO SCENE on a mobile computer, the project scan data becomes automatically fully registered. This On-Site Registration makes the in-office registration obsolete and the project map generates an all encompassing overview from the site scanned.

Both the Focus S and M series support the new function of rescanning distant targets. Selected areas can now be rescanned at a higher resolution for more accurate target detection. Rescanning small areas of interest provides the highest possible detail while significantly reducing the data volume and the number of necessary scans.

Next to the FocusS series FARO offers the FocusM 70 Laser Scanner, that features the same short-range distance as FocusS 70, being equipped with a less advanced features set and a lower level of distance accuracy. The device is ideal for indoor measurements and small area applications.

For scan data processing users have unrestricted freedom of choice to leverage the software tools most beneficial to their own workflow. The point cloud data captured with FARO Laser Scanners can be used with various software packages including FARO SCENE, FARO As-Built, FARO-BuildIT Construction, FARO Zone 2D, FARO Zone 3D or 3rd party software such as Autodesk ReCap.

All scanner types offer the possibility to perform scanning even in bright sunlight. Remote scanning as well as almost limitless scan data sharing via SCENE Webshare Cloud make the laser scanning solution truly mobile.
