The MapStar TruAngle, like its predecessor – the MapStar Angle Encoder (MSAE), precisely calculates a turned horizontal angle that can be referenced to any desired point or direction. When integrated with an LTI laser, you can capture X, Y and Z coordinates for complete 3D mapping and surface modeling. With a smaller and lighter weight design, a more simplistic user interface and a price point that’s nearly half of the MSAE, the TruAngle angle encoder is an attractive alternative mapping accessory.
When mounted on a tripod, the TruAngle angle encoder is capable of producing +/- 0.05 degrees in angular accuracy. There is a built-in mechanical bubble to assist with leveling it correctly and a friction lock mechanism that helps you take more precise measurements. All the angular values can be clearly seen, day or night, with the easy to read numbers and backlit LCD.
