Based on the high quality laser scanner Z+F IMAGER® 5006i, Zoller+Fröhlich GmbH and DMT GmbH &
Co. KG have developed the first explosion proof 3D laser scanner.
The IMAGER 5006EX revolutionizes surveying in underground mining and industries where explosive
atmospheres could occur.
The IMAGER 5006EX is the world’s first ATEX approved 3D laser scanner for use in mining and industrial
applications under explosive conditions.
The IMAGER 5006EX is class I and class II approved according to ATEX directive 94/9/EC.
ATEX a pprov a l de s c ription
The ATEX directive 94/9/EG “Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially
explosive atmospheres” is a European standard.
The ATEX approval for this equipment is widely accepted outside the European community.
Class I (equipment marking: I M2 Ex d [ib] op is I)
Mining conditions are likely to cause operational difficulties for any piece of equipment. However the
IMAGER 5006EX is able to cope with these difficult conditions throughout a wide range of mining
applications. The equipment is tested and certified for ATEX equipment category 2.
Class II (equipment marking: I II 2G Ex d [ib] op is IIB T4)
There are a diverse range of industrial applications. The IMAGER 5006EX is approved for class II,
however it is important to review the industrial environment against the appropriateness of the
IMAGER 5006EX prior to use.
The IMAGER 5006EX with its pressure-resistant case is tested for usage in category 2G. It can be
used in areas where explosive atmospheres caused by gases, vapours or mists are likely to occur.
Such equipment could be used in zone 1 and zone 2 environments where explosive conditions prevail.
Furthermore the scanner is tested for different ambient conditions. The IMAGER 5006EX is approved for gas group IIB. In this gas group the reference gases are ethylene, coke oven gas and
other industrial gases.
Another important figure is the temperature classification. The classification specifies the maximum
equipment surface temperature. The IMAGER 5006EX is approved for temperature class T4, where
the surface temperature is allowed to reach 135°C. This is an important consideration for plant
The calibrated scanner can operate in temperatures of 0°C to 40°C.

Product Advantages
The IMAGER 5006EX is built upon the highly regarded technology established in the Z+F
IMAGER® 5006i.
Power supply
The IMAGER 5006EX has a changeable internal battery pack that allows wireless scanning for 1
The battery pack has been designed to allow the user to change it in an explosive environment,
ATEX standards define that there is no external power supply allowed.
The IMAGER 5006EX can be operated via the integrated keyboard-display combination.
For external operation the scanner is equipped with a Wi-Fi interface. Therefore a PDA or
notebook (ATEX certification needed) can be used to operate the scanner from a distance if
The captured data is stored on the internal hard disk.
The Ethernet interface can be used for outside explosive environment.
Data capture/quality
The IMAGER 5006EX could be used in various applications due to the great point density and
excellent accuracy. The data acquisition rate of 508,000 points per second allows very fast data
capture and project time savings. The scan data is stored on an internal hard disk, capable of
holding at least 60GB of data. This allows very intense scanning.
The IMAGER 5006EX is compatible with all Z+F software products such as Z+F LaserControl and
The scanner can be mounted on a special tripod available from Z+F. The tripod allows the user
to level the scanner horizontally.
To allow survey control a standard prism can be mounted on top of the scanner.
The laser scan data is also compatible with software products supplied by other supported
external vendors such as Visual Sensor Fusion (VSF), JRC 3D Reconstructor etc..
