Description

The RIEGL VUX-240-24 is the new version of the proven RIEGL VUX-240, offering higher pulse repetition rates and faster scanning speed for further increased field performance and workflow efficiency. The sophisticated design enables integration with UAS/UAV/RPAS and adequate crewed aero planes or helicopters.

With its wide field of view of 75 degrees and an extremely fast data acquisition rate of up to 2.4 MHz, the instrument is perfectly suited for high point density applications.

A continuously rotating polygon mirror wheel enables scan speeds of up to 600 lines per second, for efficiently covering large areas when operated from fast UAVs or aircraft.

The VUX-240-24 makes use of RIEGL‘s unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage.

The scanner provides an internal data storage capacity of 1 TByte and is equipped with interfaces for an external IMU/GNSS system as well as to control up to four external cameras.
