Absolute Tracker: Speed

High-Speed Measurement Without Compromising on Quality


Measurement at high-speed means different things to different people. With the Absolute Tracker range, we have a system to satisfy any definition.

If it’s high-speed dynamic measurement that’s important to you, the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 is fundamentally fast. Able to record measurement data at up to 1000 Hz as standard the AT960 is the king of dynamic measurement. Based on the unique Absolute Interferometer, it combines the unrivalled accuracy of the Absolute Distance Meter with the speed of an interferometer to deliver accurate measurement data fast. And when combined with our Real-Time Feature Pack, the AT960 gets even quicker, moving into the realm of 7DoF measurement where truly real-time machine control becomes possible.

Designed to augment the performance of the AT960 is the ground-breaking Absolute Scanner AS1. Based on our pioneering SHINE – Systematic High-Intelligence Noise Elimination – technology, the AS1 is an ultra-high-speed blue laser scanner. When combined with the Absolute Positioner AP21, it becomes a handheld 3D scanner that can be tracked by the AT960 at a distance of up to 30 metres. It provides market-leading data quality with incredibly fast measurement process times thanks to the automatic intelligent exposure functionality provided by SHINE. This allows fast and reliable digitisation of multiple surface types, whether on features, edges or planes, within a single measurement sweep and without user intervention.


On the other hand, sometimes it’s the speed of the entire measurement process that matters most, particularly when it comes to large parts. And in that case, there are no better solutions than the Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 and Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-XL. Both are designed to output data for oversized parts and surfaces quickly. The ultra-wide laser scan line width of the LAS-XL can cover large areas faster than any other handheld scanner. The ATS600 on the other hand can deliver targeted scans of very large objects at a distance of up to 60 metres, with no need for a user holding a reflector or other sensor at the point of measurement. Unlike the hemisphere scans of traditional large-scale terrestrial scanners, the selective scanning functionality of the ATS600 offers pinpoint scanning of only the features that need to be measured.

It doesn’t matter how you think about speed – our range of laser tracker systems has a solution to meet your needs.
