Laser Technology offers improved rangefinder with compass

August 22, 2018  - By

Laser Technology Inc. (LTI), manufacturer of professional-grade laser rangefinders, has released its improved TruPulse 360 laser, which features LTI’s TruVector 360° Compass Technology.

The rangefinder has numerous measurement capabilities. According to the company, it can measure slope distance, inclination and azimuth; instantly calculate horizontal and vertical distances; and calculate 3D missing line values.

The enhanced device offers 33 percent increased distance accuracy, 25 percent better target acquisition and a higher azimuth accuracy of 0.5° root mean squared (RMS).

“Given its limitless angle and tilt capabilities, the TruPulse 360 is extremely popular for GPS/GNSS offset mapping processes,” said Eric Miller, president of Laser Technology Inc. “The laser’s flexibility enables users to record offsets and attribute data of multiple features from a single location, making data collection quicker, easier and even safer in potentially hazardous situations.”

The new TruPulse 360 continues LTI’s mission of providing cutting-edge laser measurement solutions in an easy-to-use way, and this model represents an accumulation of more than a decade of work.

In 2007, the TruPulse 360 integrated LTI’s exclusive TruVector 360° Compass Technology, which was developed from the company’s stand-alone MapStar compass module. The combination of an integrated compass, inclinometer and distance laser gave measurement professionals the best possible azimuth accuracy — and mapping-grade precision — no matter the angle it was shot in, the company said.

This latest version of the TruPulse 360, with an even more accurate electronic compass integrated into the laser, continues to deliver added value for the modern measurement professional. Uses include forestry, utilities, construction and GIS mapping.

In addition to its increased range and azimuth accuracy and Bluetooth-enabled communication, the TruPulse 360 features:

  • Reflectorless technology that enables data capture to any surface type;
  • advanced targeting modes to achieve accurate, repeatable results of the intended target;
  • seven-power superior optics technology that displays all measured and calculated solutions; and
  • Smart technology that recognizes adverse measurement conditions and prompts recalibration.

“By integrating our great compass technology into this already groundbreaking device, no other laser on the market can match the performance of the TruPulse 360,” Miller said. “And with our continuous commitment to making user-driven enhancements, the TruPulse 360 stands on its own as the best measurement and mapping laser rangefinder out there.”
