Denver, USA, 12 June 2007: The Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI) has released TruPulse 360 which is based on its TruPulse 200 laser measuring device and combines an integrated compass, inclinometer and distance laser. It delivers mapping-grade accuracy and the ability to shoot from any angle.
The TruPulse 360 utilizes the electronic compass technology to overcome limitations on other devices. The internal circuitry provides 3-axis monitoring of the earth’s magnetic field and uses LTI’s TruVector compass technology and calibration algorithms to produce the azimuth accuracy, regardless of the instrument’s orientation in physical space. The TruPulse 360 can be tilted, rolled or even used upside down, and it will still measure the correct azimuth in the direction that the user is viewing, allowing the user to “shoot from any angle.”
The feature is particularly useful to get distance, height or location measurements in difficult or impossible-to-reach areas, such as in mountainous terrain, wetlands or across dangerous snowfields.
TruVector compass technology also allows for a simple field calibration procedure. It evaluates the local magnetic environment and provides user feedback on the quality of calibration. In addition, the instrument keeps a constant watch on its internal status via built-in system tests, which continually monitor the integrity of the compass calibration and alert a user if a re-calibration is required.
Laser Technology Inc. is a Colorado-based company involved in the design and manufacture of laser-based speed and distance measurement instruments for traffic safety and professional measurement organizations and businesses.
