Laser scanning system for kinematic clearance analysis & asset data collection applications
The Trimble GEDO GX50 is a modern and flexible laser scanning system that is designed to operate with Trimble GEDO track measurement systems.
The Trimble GEDO GX50 is available in a Single Head configuration with one scanner and in a dual head configuration with two scanners. The modular system design allows the second scanner to be added later. Depending on application specific requirements, the scanners can be mounted in different positions and tilt angles. The scanner positioned perpendicular to the track axis provides an optimum of accuracy for high precision clearance analysis. In the butterfly configuration, objects that are perpendicular to the track become clearly visible.
The high-resolution three-dimensional data obtained with the system quickly and precisely can be used for clearance verification and as-built data collection. In terms of accuracy and resolution, the data provides an excellent basis for modelling in a BIM-compliant design and construction workflow.
Planning, BIM and Construction
Documentation of track corridor state
Spatial data for 3D design modelling
Extensive clearance analysis for current track or new track to be designed
Overhead power line planning
As-built documentation after completion
Operation and Maintenance
Clearance analysis for extra-wide transports and cross-border rail traffic
Narrow-gauge documentation for the track infrastructure owners (e.g. WinLUE for LIRA and Clearroute)
Capturing rail asset objects for inventory documentation
Utilizing a universal track measurement trolley with modular expansion options
Full 360° measurement provides visibility of all objects at the track
Can be used with one or two scanners
Flexible alignment of scanners for optimal visibility of objects
High measuring frequency and rotation rate allows for fast trolley movement during recording
Uniform power supply and battery hot-swap functionality
Combination with geodetic instruments for absolute referencing of point cloud
High-resolution live display for immediate on-site clearance checks
High productivity and flexibility reduces personnel requirements and lowers costs
This October our theme for marking Black History Month is 'Hidden Figures' - as we educate ourselves on forgotten or overlooked black figures from our history - or in the case of this piece, our present! Read More
