Extreme Accuracy to 500 Meter Depth

    500 Meter Depth Rated Underwater Laser Scanner Measures up to 0.01 Millimeter Accuracy

    The M500UW underwater laser scanner is the sister scanner to the Newton M210UW with the same extremely accurate specifications at deeper depths. The M500UW operates by optical triangulation. The projected laser line sweeps the target surface and the ultra high-resolution camera, centered on the target, captures any deformation of the line and sends the information to the control console where the Newton-developed algorithms create and record a point cloud, enabling precise, post-session dimensioning using industry standard three-dimensional software. Although specifically designed for use in fresh or salt water, these versatile scanners can also operate in air.

    • Live Camera View  The M500UW, unlike other underwater laser scanners, contains a live operator camera view that greatly simplifies scanning, shortens scanning time and increases accuracy.
    • No Moving Parts Exposed to the Water  The M500UW is designed with all moving components fully contained behind the pressure boundaries.
    • Designed for Easy ROV/AUV Mounting  The M500UW requires only GigEthernet and 24VDC from the ROV/AUV at a very low current draw. Convenient mounting pedestals and mounting pads allow for simple gripping or bolting to any ROV/AUV.
    • Scan Area  The M500UW has a scan area of 880 MM by 650 MM at 1 Meter distance from the scanned object.
    • CAD Model Resolution  The M500UW produces scans with CAD resolutions down to 0.01 MM depending on the distance from the scanned object and the type of scanned object.
    • All Digital Data  All data is transmitted to the surface or the ROV/AUV with GigEthernet for permanent storage and later analysis.
    • Aluminum Construction  Aluminum hard seawater anodized.
    • Saphire Optical barrier  All functioning componet are contained behind saphire optical barriers.


    Newton Labs developed and manufactures the M500UW Underwater Laser Scanner specifically to gather extremely accurate non-contact measurements in subsea and marine environments.
