TruPulse 200L Rangefinder for Forestry Passes Field Test

Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI) recently introduced two new additions to the world famous TruPulse laser rangefinder family, the TruPulse 200X and TruPulse 200L. The TruPulse 200X is a ruggedized rangefinder that achieves the highest distance and inclination accuracy with in-scope LED display. The TruPulse line also serves foresters with a more modest budget with the TruPulse 200L, a rangefinder at a recreational price that can still produce professional results. “The Forestry Source,” published by Society of American Foresters ran an article in their most current issue called, “A Look at the TruPulse 200L Rangefinder.”

The article is featured in the Field Tech section and was written by Steve WilentWilent states that after five years of writing the column and testing out many products, the TruPulse 360 rangefinder is “one of his favorites.” The 200L, however, did not disappoint the reviewer. With far, reflectorless range, a surprisingly low price point and a menu with clear icons that are easy to navigate, and the ability to distinguish desired targets, the 200L is more than adequate.

The rangefinder measures slope distance and inclination in degrees or percent, calculates horizontal distance, vertical distance, height and 2D missing line. The ML routine can compute slope grades with just two simple shots to the top and base within the same vertical plane.  It can also determine height differences between any two points. The 200L also boasts 4X magnification that the review highlights is great for finding tree tops and other targets among dense brush and closed canopy.  Not only is the 200L great for long distances without a reflector, but also outperforms the competition in shorter distance measurements, according to Wilent.

An ideal and affordable tool for forestry tasks like tree height measurements, the 200L is recommended by the reviewer who states the 200L is “a well-built tool for the price.” To find out more about the TruPulse 200L or any of the other TruPulse models, visit our forestry website and call 1-877-696-2584 for an onsite demonstration.
