The High Speed High Performance 3D Laser Scanner RIEGL VZ-200 is a rugged and fully portable sensor especially designed for the rapid acquisition of high-quality three dimensional point cloud data even under high demanding environmental conditions in industrial environments.

Due to its ingenious design the scanner can be mounted and operated in any orientation and thus optimally adapted to the requirements of the operating environment. The RIEGL VZ-200 provides a unique and unrivalled combination of wide field-of-view, high accuracy, and extremely fast data acquisition.

High-performance pulsed laser ranging, based on RIEGL‘s state-of-the-art Waveform-LiDAR technology – offering echo signal digitization with subsequent online waveform analysis – results in accurate measurement capabilities with excellent multiple target echo discrimination. As the scanner operates at extremely high laser pulse repetition rates, laser ranging by pulsed time-of-flight ranging normally will become ambiguous. By means of applying the RIEGL library RiMTA data provided by the VZ-200 are reliably assigned to the correct MTA zone and thus range values are given correctly. The RiMTA library is available for all major platforms and makes use of any GPU available to further speed up processing.

Scanner control and acquisition of the binary RIEGL raw RXP-datastream is supported by the RiVLib software library.
