Nikon Introduces New Laser Rangefinder "Forestry Pro"

September 9, 2011

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to present the Forestry Pro, a laser rangefinder with three-point measurement capability.

Ever since the first model was released in 1999, Nikon laser rangefinders have been well received by a wide variety of users. The Forestry Pro has been developed based on the Forestry 550, released in 2008, to meet the demands of the forestry industry for more functions to conduct simple measurements. The Forestry Pro is equipped with three-point measurement in addition to the conventional vertical separation. Three-point measurement provides the difference in height between two targets by measuring horizontal distance to a target then angles to the target base and the top. It is very useful when the laser beam is blocked by the bushes or branches that cover the base or top of a tree.

Measurement Example (three-point measurement)

When three-point measurement is achieved, the height between points 2 and 3 is displayed on the internal LCD with Hor Hgt + Hgt2 (solid), and Hgt (2) and Ang (2) are shown on the external LCD. Points 2 and 3 can be reversed.

Note: The origin of the technique of this Laser Rangefinder with inclinometer is the Surveying Instruments incorporated measuring capability of both distance and angle which were developed by Nikon Corporation. Among such products, especially, the first highly advanced electronic model, the Total Station DTM-1, is the root (Sold in 1985).
