- Scales for slope in degrees and %
- Accurate measurement of heights and slopes
- Optical reading of card for higher accuracy
The compact hand-held Suunto PM-5 clinometer allows to measure heights, slopes, and angles from a variable distance quickly and with high accuracy. This particular model uses a percentage scale. The liquid inside the tool won’t freeze or evaporate as long as you stay within the -30° C to +60° C / -22° F to +140° F temperature range. Sturdy aluminum housing protects the instrument from water, impact and corrosion. You can mount the tool on the tripod, if needed using the threaded hole. Another advantage is that this clinometer is very lightweight and requires a very little space during transportation, which will be particularly convenient for travellers.
So whether you are a forester, engineer, cartographer, geologist, or architect, this robust, accurate and functional tool is a good choice, suitable for a variety of purposes.
