Laser Technology, Inc. Awarded Patent for TruPulse® 360
Compass Calibration Technique
May 25, 2012 -- Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI), a Colorado-based laser designer and manufacturer, has been awarded a patent for the TruPulse® 360 compass calibration technique. Developed by Jeremy G. Dunne, LTI’s Chief Technology Officer and innovator behind most of LTI's products, the Magnetic Sensor and Accelerometer Calibration Technique allows this unique, handheld compass sensor to produce one degree azimuth accuracy without any pitch and roll limitations.
"It has been years in the making, but achieving the goal of receiving a patent for this unique compass calibration technique solidifies that LTI is still leading the way in mobile mapping and measurement technology," says Eric Miller, President and COO of Laser Technology, Inc.
One of the major benefits of this technology is that now users can quickly and easily calibrate a TruPulse® 360 and instantly get a pass or fail confirmation right in the display scope. LTI’s exclusive TruVector 360° Compass Technology® makes it possible for this compass laser to not only get reliable and accurate azimuth measurements, it warns the users when the battery voltage or temperature has changed enough to where a re-calibration is required. This technology is like nothing on the market and anyone has yet to match its reliability, repeatability and overall performance.
From verifying slope grades and spans to calculating heights or clearances of any target, the TruPulse® 360 allows users the potential to get the measurements they need safely, easily and accurately. Integrate GPS and remotely position any feature without having to occupy that location. The possibilities are endless when you have a TruPulse® 360 in your hand.
LTI is celebrating their 25th year of business and has been awarded 64 laser and compass-based patents worldwide. The company is responsible for revolutionizing reflectorless measurement from developing the first commercial laser speed measurement device to the first reflectorless handheld total station, and continues to lead the way in mapping and measurement technology.
