US: Laser Technology Inc. (LTI), the world’s leading manufacturer of professional-grade laser rangefinders, proudly announces the release of its new and improved TruPulse 360 laser featuring LTI’s TruVector 360° Compass Technology®, the most advanced handheld laser on the market.
With groundbreaking compass technology and a full stack of measurement capabilities, the ability to measure slope distance, inclination and azimuth, and instantly calculate horizontal and vertical distances as well as 3D missing line values is just the push of a button away. 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 work more than a decade in the making.
In 2007, the TruPulse 360 raised the bar on what a laser rangefinder could be with the integration of LTI’s exclusive TruVector 360° Compass Technology, which was developed from the company’s standalone 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 what the angle it was shot in.
This latest version of the TruPulse 360, with an even more accurate electronic compass integrated right into the laser, continues to deliver added value for the modern measurement professional, from forestry and utilities to construction and GIS mapping. The enhanced device offers 33 percent increased distance accuracy, 25 percent better target acquisition and a higher azimuth accuracy of 0.5° 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 LTI. “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.”
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
- 7-power superior optics technology that displays all your measured and calculated solutions
- 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 added. “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.”
