Product Spotlight: TruPulse 200 Laser Rangefinder
Bob just spent most of his day 200 feet up a tower installing new equipment. He finally got everything hooked up and positioned perfectly. Now it’s time for Bob to pack up his equipment and move to the next job site. Once he got back to the ground Bob found out that some of his measurements were off and the equipment is not where it needs to be. Bob now has to spend the rest of the day fixing that error and pushing his entire schedule back. Mistakes can be costly in the form of lost time, lost wages, and unsatisfied customers. If only Bob had used a laser rangefinder to ensure his measurements were accurate and the job was done right the first time. In an effort to make sure you’re not like Bob, our Gear Experts® are going to break down the TruPulse 200 Laser Rangefinder.
The TruPulse 200 Laser Rangefinder
This nifty little handheld device provides extremely accurate measurements that you can trust. And, because of the Bluetooth connectivity and serial port features, it pairs perfectly with antenna aligners like the MultiWave SmartAligner. The 200 Laser Rangefinder has been around for quite some time, but this isn’t your grandpa’s rangefinder. Laser Technologies recently revamped the 200 model. It now takes 50% more accurate ratings than before - with a distance accuracy of ± 8 inches and an inclination accuracy of ± 0.25°. It also features improved target acquisition and higher range resolution. All of this is achieved by using TruPulse’s proprietary TruTargeting Technology.
More than Meets the Eye
The TruPulse 200 Laser Rangefinder does far more than just measure distance and angles. It also has the ability to measure slope and distance plus inclination in degrees or percentages with the simple click of a button. The rangefinder then uses those measurements to internally calculate a three-shot height routine and a 2-d line routine. This is used to calculate slope determinations and changes in elevation. The maximum range for reflective targets is 2,000 meters while non-reflective targets have a max range of 1,000 meters (that’s around 6,561 and 3,280 feet, respectively). The high-quality optics jam-packed into this device magnify your field of view by up to 7X!
The 200 Laser Rangefinder also has five target modes so you can select or eliminate multiple targets. Those target modes are:
→ STD. (Single Shot)
→ CON. (Continuous)
→ CLO. (Closest)
→ FAR. (Farthest)
→ FLT. (Filter)
As mentioned above, this device is Bluetooth compatible with Windows and Android devices. It also includes an RS-232 serial com-port making it a perfect tool to pair with an antenna aligner to measure AGL
All these features make this rangefinder ideal for the telecom, wind-energy, and construction industries.
