Criterion™ RD 1000 Electronic BAF-scope/Dendrometer
Criterion RD 1000 Electronic Dendrometer
This revolutionary measurement device features an integrated tilt sensor which allows collection of diameter data at any point up the stem and also determines the height at which a specific diameter is reached. The Basal Area Factor (BAF) routine indicates “In” and “Out” trees for a full range of sampling factors. In addition, the status of borderline trees can be determined by entering a distance from a rangefinder (not included) into the Criterion RD 1000 through the input serial port or manually via the keypad. A second output serial port allows for data transfer to an external data collector (not included). To improve measurement resolution at greater distances, use the included 2.4x magnifier. The in-scope LED display features variable brightness for easy reading in all lighting conditions. Water and dust resistant, the unit also features a 1/4” x 20 thread mount for attachment to a monopod or tripod. Carrying case, lens cloth, neck strap, and manual included.
