The New Brunton Axis

Transit__U3A3094_Front_Cover_grandeInvented by Geologists, for Geologists!

The feedback we received on the new Brunton Axis Geo Compass at PDAC 2017 was awesome, students and Geologists alike were excited about the multi featured Axis with features never before offered on a Brunton pocket transit


The Axis was invented by geologists for geologists and features a significant new twist on the pocket transit that is designed especially for easier geological measurements. Product Details Innovative dual-axis, hollow hinge allows for intuitive, efficient, accurate measurements of planes, lines, bearings, and vertical angles. Only one measurement configuration is needed for strike & dip, trend & plunge, bearing & vertical angle, increasing efficiency and accuracy of measurements. Compass North is parallel to the main hinge axis, making the Axis the only transit able to measure strike and dip concurrently, through contact or sighting methods. Novel lid protractor and rotation around minor axis enables accurate, simultaneous measurement of trend & plunge on any surface, including overhangs. Dimensions (Closed): 3.92″ X 2.78″ X 1.18″ Weight: 12.5 oz Compass Bearing Accuracy: ±1/2 WITH 1° graduations Inclinometer Accuracy: ±1/2 WITH 1° graduations Dip Angle Accuracy: ±1 WITH 2° graduations
