FOREWORD
Thank you for purchasing the TOPCON Laser Scanner, GLS-1500 series.
For the best performance of the instruments, please carefully read these instructions
and keep them in a convenient location for future reference.
1
General Handling Precautions
Before starting work or operation, be sure to check that the instrument is
functioning correctly with normal performance.
Using the instrument on rainy days
It may not be possible to use the instrument if there are water drops on the glass of the
windows.
It is also not possible to scan wet objects.
Horizontally rotating part (head)
Do not turn the head with your hands while the power is ON. If it has been turned by force, turn
the power ON again.
Waterproof property
The instrument is designed based on the International Standard IPX2, therefore it can
withstand light rain. However, in case of heavy rain, there is no guarantee that the instrument
will be protected from waterdrops.
Setting the instrument on a tripod
When mounting the instrument on a tripod, use a wooden tripod.
Do not use a metallic tripod.
Installing the tribrach
If the tribrach is installed incorrectly, the measuring precision could be effected. Occasionally
check the adjusting screws on the tribrach. Make sure the base fixing lever is locked and the
base fixing screws are tightened.
Guarding the instrument against shocks
When transporting the instrument, provide some protection to minimize risk of shocks. Heavy
shocks may cause the measurement to be faulty.
Exposing the instrument to extreme heat.
Do not leave the instrument in extreme heat for longer than necessary. It could adversely
affect its performance.
Sudden changes of temperature
Any sudden change of temperature to the instrument may result in a reduction of measuring
distance range, i.e when taking the instrument out from a heated vehicle. Let instrument
acclimate itself to ambient temperature.
Direct sunlight
Do not expose the instrument to direct sunlight for extended periods of time. When left in the
sun for long periods, performance may be adversely affected, or if the inner temperature of the
instrument may rise to an abnormally high level, the instrument may fail to operate.
When measurements must be made in locations exposed to the sun and require high
precision, protect from direct sunlight by using a sunshade for the instrument and tripod.
Battery level check
Confirm battery level remaining before operating.
Battery use
Always use four batteries as one set, and operate the instrument with batteries that have been
charged and discharged the same number of times. Do not mix old and new batteries, or
batteries that have been charged and discharged a different number of times.
Taking the battery out
It is recommended not to take the battery out during the power is on. Please do your
assembling or taking the battery out after the power is off.Refer to Chapter 4.5 “Replacing the
Battery” if you need to replace the batteries during scanning.
External power source
Use only recommended batteries or external power source. Use of batteries or an external
power source not recommended by us may result in equipment failure.
Wireless LAN card
Do not touch the connector area for the wireless LAN card. Static electricity may damage the
instrument.
When a wireless LAN card is used near instruments that emit radio waves such as cordless
phones or wireless transmitters, the radio waves may interfere with each other.
Target sheet
Be sure to use target sheets for GLS-1500.
(Do not use target sheets for GLS-1000 because the high precision can not be obtained with
them.)

Target scanning
Target scanning is used to scan a target set in the 3-D scanning area.
Target scanning data is used in the after-processing to align 3-D scanning data obtained from multiple
points.
In target scanning, the coordinates of the center of the target are obtained.
3-D scanning
3-D scanning is used to obtain three-dimensional data.
Determine the scanning area first, and set the parameters (scanning density).

8.1 Target Scanning
Target scanning is necessary to coordinate positional information of multiple 3D scanning in the afterprocessing of the data.
It is therefore necessary to set the target so that it is also visible from the next station.
Place the target on or near the scanning object, and perform the scanning.
z The only target sheet you can use is Topcon's target sheets for GLS-1500. Do not use target
sheets for GLS-1000.
z In order to coordinate positional information of the data, scanning data on 3 or more targets is
needed. Set targets at 3 or more locations where it is possible to collimate from each station.
z 3D data cannot be obtained where the target sheets are placed, so avoid putting them on
important scanning locations.
z Do not set the targets on a straight line. Also, spread out the targets equally so that they can cover
the 3D scanning area fully.
z Use the appropriate target sheets depending on the scanning distance. Refer to Chapter 4.9.1
“Selecting the Target Sheet”.

(BT-65Q)
•
To charge
1 Connect the AC/DC converter and AC-Cable to the charger. *1)
2 Plug the AC-Plug into the outlet. (The Power LED will light.)
3 Attach the battery in the charger. Charging will start. (The Charge LED will Orange.)
Charging will take approximately 5 hours per discharged battery. (The Charge LED will Green.)
If two batteries are attached to the charger, it will take about 10 hours to charge them completely.
In this case, the batteries are charged one by one.
If battery power is at a very low level when beginning charging, such as after the instrument has
been in storage over an extended period of time in a discharge state, a full charge may not be
possible with a single charging. In such a case, recharge a second time.
4 After charging, remove the battery from the charger.
Remove the charger from the outlet.

•
•
•
•
•
Do not charge continuously, otherwise the battery and the charger may be deteriorated.
If charging is necessary, use the charger after stopping charge for approximately 30 minutes.
Do not charge the battery in right after the battery is charged, it causes deterioration of the battery
in rare cases.
The charger may develop heat while charging, there is no problem of it.
Recharging should take place in a room with an ambient temperature range of 10°C to 40°C (50°F
to 104°F).
If charging is done at high temperature, charging time of the battery may take longer.
Exceeding the specified charging time may shorten the life of the battery and should be avoided if
possible.
The battery source will discharge when stored and should be checked before using with
instrument.
If the instrument is not used over an extended period of time, store in a place at 30°C or below in
a 50% charged state.
Over discharge will lower performance and a full charge may become impossible. Please charge
once every few months.
