The Void Scanner+ is the laser-based cavity monitoring system that helps you to solve underground surveying challenges quickly and at low cost, the Carlson Void Scanner+ is a specialized, ruggedized instrument. Void Scanner+ uses time-of-flight laser measurement to map the shape, position and spatial location of voids, which helps ensure both the safety of personnel, and the protection of stock and underground sites.
The Void Scanner+ uses time-of-flight laser measurement to map the shape, position and spatial location of voids, which helps ensure both the safety of personnel, and the protection of stock and underground sites. Void Scanner+ data is used to ensure more efficient and profitable mineral extraction. With accurate, up-to-the minute site maps, you can better monitor progress, improve planning, reduce wastage, maximise extraction and speed up project timescales.
Enhance project capability Now with multi-station project capability, Carlson Scan software enables you to scan from multiple locations and view the resulting scans together in real time for a complete 3D representation of the site.
Minimise safety risks Flexible deployment options and wireless communication mean operators can retreat to a position of safety and still view results during scanning.
Improve site management Use Void Scanner+ data to better monitor and control ore loss and dilution by comparing the scanned stope with the design data. Scans also provide a record of daily productivity to support decision making.
Simplify operations Quick setup and simple operation is essential for those who use Void Scanner+ for daily void volume calculations. Ten minutes is all it takes to unpack the system, connect cables, mount the boom and ready the software.
Speed up decision making Each Void Scanner+ data point has XYZ co-ordinates to allow accurate geo-referencing with the mine’s co-ordinate system. This means that scans can be stitched together in real time for an instant visual of the site.
Reduce scanning times With a 200 points per second scan rate, a horizontal scan extent of 360° and a vertical scan extent of 270°, the Void Scanner+ enables you to complete a detailed scan of 1˚ increments in under 12 minutes.
