  Measure wood chip pile length side by side and one or more heights (maximum number of heights is 28 for each side). Height measurements are made using a 2-point method from base to top along the pile side 






Laser technology is ideal to measure long distances, up to 700 meters/yards! Image shows instrument mounted on camera-type staff (accessory). Distance Measuring  

Different height measurement methods can be selected depending on the environment or needs.

  • One point height
  • Three point
  • Two point with laser
  • Two point with reference point
  • Two point with fixed distance Tree Heights
  Measure inclination in the terrain. The L5 instrument presents the angle in degrees, grads and percentage. The camera-type monopod with foot-bracket is an accessory that can be used with the Postex, the VL5 and the L5 when a steadier aim is required. Angle and Inclination
