The DME is a classic ultrasound measuring system and perfect to use in sample plots.
DME - DISTANCE MEASURER
The DME instrument system from Haglöf Sweden offers speedy and reliable results for distance measuring in the forest. The DME system works with ultrasound technique, making it especially useful in dense terrain and where underbrush is thick. The built-in BAF functions are useful for point/plot sampling work. Basal Area (BAF)
The complete DME system includes the small and rugged DME measuring instrument, a transponder T3 and plot staff/monopod with adapter. The monopod with transponder is placed in the plot center, allowing the user to measure and determine the plot radius.
DENSE VEGETATION IS NO PROBLEM FOR THE DME
The DME works with ultrasound technique
Haglöf Sweden's ultrasound instruments are tested and proven reliable in all types of terrain and conditions.
MEASURE IN A FULL, 360° CIRCLE
The exact plot radius can be measured from any direction to the plot center when the T3 transponder is mounted on the monopod and the custom 360° adapter.
BAF FUNCTIONS BUILT-IN
With the Basal Area Factor (BAF) function you will know the minimum diameter for trees to be counted and included in the plot.
DME - DME
The DME can also work in pair, with two DME measuring instruments measuring the distance in between. This method is useful to maintain equal width for example in road construction work and when clearing along power lines.
