Nikon introduces the Forestry Pro II Laser Rangefinder

November 27, 2019

TOKYO - Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., (Nikon Vision), a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation (Nikon), is pleased to announce the release of a new portable Laser Rangefinder, the Forestry Pro II.

The Forestry Pro II is an evolved model of the current Forestry Pro which has been highly acclaimed as a simple surveying instrument for forestry. Inheriting functions useful for simple measurement that the existing model employs such as actual distance, horizontal distance, height, angle and vertical separation (difference in height between two targets) measurement functions, and three-point measurement (height between two points), the Forestry Pro II extends the maximum measurement range with improved accuracy of measured results, as evolved points. Also, the measurement response time until results are displayed has been shortened. This new model achieves measurement of longer distances than the original Forestry Pro while providing more accurate and faster response.

The external display has a higher pixel count making it easier to view than the previous model. Backlighting is newly employed so that the display can be viewed easily even in dark situations, such as for forestry. There are three levels of backlight brightness that can be adjusted according to the light conditions.

In addition, a log function is employed for storing up to 250 measurement results. This log can be referred to on the external display, for more convenient use.
