Laser Technology Inc. Released MapStar Compass Module II

Laser Technology Inc. released the MapStar Compass Module II, a newly enhanced digital compass that calculates azimuth (directional) measurement for all types of mapping applications. The new simple calibration procedure and streamlined menus reduce setup time and increase productivity in the field. The MapStar Compass Module II integrates with Laser Techonology’s Impulse laser-rangefinder series, which provides long-range reflectorless distance measurements with an optional tilt sensor in the 200 models. To limit magnetic interference, the magneto resistive sensor is positioned as far away as possible from the internal batteries. In addition, the modular design allows the user to pivot the rangefinder up to 180 degrees while keeping the compass sensor level. (Laser Technology, Englewood, Colo.)
