30000012 : Brunton Compass (5006LM)
Product #: 30000012
Brunton Pocket Transits, typically known as a "BRUNTON", are still considered the most reliable, accurate and most respected field instrument to geologists, surveyors, mining engineers, civil engineers, environmental engineers and foresters worldwide. This 5006LM model utilizes an International suspension needle, and is housed in an almost indestructable cast aluminum body, instead of the lightweight composite material.
The 5006LM transit features a single NdFeB magnet that resists demagnetization better than other types of magnets for increased reliability. Waterproof and accurate to ± 1/2 degree with a 0-360 degree azimuth ring, the 5006LM features an induction dampened needle for quick and accurate readings. And the gear driven magnetic declination adjustment allows for east or west declination settings to 180 degrees.
The vertical angle scale featuring 1 degree increments has a range of ± 90 degrees or 100% grade scale with an accuracy of ± 1/2 degree. A percent grade scale features increments of 5%.
Other special features include the precision aligned mirror with convenient "see through" sighting capability, short and long sights, composite body material with minimal thermal mass, jeweled bearings, and bubble levels. Each of these special features helps to increase the accuracy of your measurements. In addition to the many special features mentioned, every 5006LM pocket transit comes complete with a comprehensive compass instruction book and leather case.
