Introducing: The Haglof Vertex Laser Geo

Vertex Laser Geo/ Rangefinder/Hypsometer/ Bluetooth/Compass/GPS/Usb 2.0/SSD disk

Haglöf Sweden introduces the new Vertex Laser models with outstanding capacities for your most accurate and efficient field measurement operation.

The Vertex Laser Geo is the latest from our friends at Haglof Sweden, and they’re pretty excited to share it with the foresters of North America. This compact little machine packs a big punch when it comes to calculating tree heights, measuring distance, crown width, terrain slopes, and even mapping.

“The Vertex Laser Geo 360 packet includes the bright orange Vertex Laser Geo ultrasound and laser measuring instrument, orange transponder T3, adapter and monopod staff. Use the Vertex Laser Geo to measure tree heights in thick forests and in sample plots, to measure in open terrain and for distance measuring from 46cm up to 700 m. Use it to measure crown width, to map areas and trails, to measure terrain slopes, to store and process the collected data. The transponder is used as ultrasound receiver to measure tree heights with ultrasound and on the monopod staff in plot sampling. The Vertex Laser Geo instrument includes built-in GPS and compass, and can be custom programmed, updated, and upgraded. “

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

IMG_8114     

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
