X-LAS MkI Upgrade

To improve existing X-LAS MkI instruments (produced between 2004 and 2011) for customers, there is an upgrade service available which converts it into a X-LAS MkII with all the benefits of the new version, whilst retaining the original housing and mounting.  The upgraded functionality includes digital electronics with an internal microprocessor and flash storage, integral display and keypad. A more powerful LED and the improved internal optics and electronics increase the maximum range to approximately 12 km.

The upgrade includes a GPS receiver for accurate time synchronisation and also includes calibration against the Kipp & Zonen reference instrument.
