3200 Meter Depth Rated Ultra Light Underwater Laser Scanner with easy MUX and IMU Integration specifically designed for small ROVs and AUVs

The PL3200UW-LW underwater laser scanner operates by optical triangulation. The projected laser line sweeps the target surface and the high-resolution camera, centered on the target, captures any deformation of the line and sends the information to the surface laptop or control console where the Newton-developed algorythms create and record a point cloud, enabling precise, post-session dimensioning using industry standard three-dimensional software.

  • Ultra Light Weight  Less than 5 Kilos in water
  • 3200 Meter Depth Rated  10 Meter scanning range
  • IMU and MUX Integration  The PL3200UW-LW easily integrates with any MUX and IMU devices for power, communication and postion data. The UL3200UW only requires 24VDC at less than 1 Amp and GigEthernet from the MUX on the ROV/AUV. Extremely low power for AUV usage.
  • Streamlined Design  Low Water Drag
  • Extremely High Accuracy  With a longer base line and higher resolution camera than any other underwater laser scanner, the PL3200UW-LW has the highest accuracy in the industry.
  • Live Camera View  The PL3200UW-LW, unlike other underwater laser scanners, contains a live operator camera view that greatly simplifies scanning, shortens scanning time and increases accuracy.
  • No Operating Componets Exposed to the Water  The PL3200UW-LW is designed with all operating componets fully contained behind the pressure boundries.
  • Designed for Easy ROV/AUV Mounting  The PL3200UW-LW requires only GigEthernet and 24VDC from the ROV/AUV at a very low current draw (Less than 1 AMP). Convenient mounting pedestals and mounting pads allow for simple gripping or bolting to any ROV/AUV.
  • Scan Area  The PL3200UW-LW has a scan area of 8.4 Meters by 6.7 Meters at 10 Meters distance from the scanned objects.
  • CAD Model Resolution  The PL3200UW-LW produces scans with CAD resolutions down to 0.02MM depending on the distance from the scanned object, IMU update rate and the speed of travel.
  • All Digital Data  All data is transmitted to the surface or the AUV vis GigEthernet for permanet storage and later analysis.
  • High Strength Aluminum Construction  Heavy Sea Water Anodized


Newton Labs developed and manufactures the PL3200UW-LW Underwater Laser Scanner specifically for small ROVs and AUVs to gather highly-accurate non-contact measurements in subsea eviroments.
