Contour XLR Series Rangefinders

The Contour series of laser rangefinders have proven to be one of the most popular high end rangefinders on the market. Used in industries as varied as forestry to power line utilities they have the ability to carry out most day to day measurement requirements with the additional functionality and accuracy to fill the gap between the low end rangefinders and survey grade equipment.

With the ability to range over distances other rangefinders can’t, it is important to not only be accurate, but to be able to see what you are shooting. The addition of a 8X  monocular gives you the ability to use standard 1 to 1 viewing or to magnify when you need to. Typical target ranges of 175 m to an overhead power line, 400 m to power/telephone poles and 800m to buildings/trees (with foliage) can be achieved.

The reticle in the Contour is not a dot or a set of cross hairs, but a square  made up of 4 lines, with the distance being measured displayed below it. What you see through the square is what you are shooting. The continual updating of the distance being measured gives you the ability to pan the Contour from target to target to ensrue that what you think you are targeting is what  you are really hitting in areas where there are a number of possible targets.

With features that let you measure the distance between 2 points from a third, angled distances between powerlines and branches, gradients, rough area and perimeter, height and more the Contour is not only a useful tool, but it saves time. Measurements that could use up to two personnel with a  total station or theodolite can be carried out with one using the Contour.  With the addition of a BlueTooth® serial port the Contour will now interface to your GPS  mapping system without a serial cable*. Offset mapping becomes a simple matter of selecting the Contour on your GPS        datalogger and then taking measurements. No more cables to break, get tangled or caught. The addition of an inbuilt compass and inclinometer in the Contour XLRic mean that you always have your compass with you.  With the addition of a BlueTooth® serial port the Contour will now interface to your GPS  mapping system without a serial cable*.

Ranging over long or short distances with the Contour is straight forward with an  instrument that has one of the best targeting systems available.
