CATENARY MEASURING INSTRUMENT

LASER distance measurement device with digital colour LCD-finder

Contact-free measurement system to determine the catenary position (height/stagger) and identify horizontal and vertical distances to poles, bridge heights, cable heights, etc. Positioning of the instrument and displaying the results with an integrated fully coloured finder/display unit.

Advantages

  • Easy handling
  • Robust finish
  • Suitable for use on building sites
  • Measurement and reading by one person
  • Different versions with accessories available
  • Measuring bar separable in two parts for easier transport
  • Customized measuring bars on request (e. g. inch)
  • Measuring bars available for other track gauges
  • Flip-mirror for horizontal measuring
  • Bluetooth data transmission to PC (WIN) or PDA (Android)
  • Measuring equipment for track superelevation

Features

  • State-of-the-art laser distance measurement unit for contact-free measuring of catenary and building distances.
  • Robust, anodised aluminium body, finely machined from solid aluminium block
