Criterion™ RD 1000 Electronic BAF-scope/Dendrometer

Rate it
US $1495.00

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 mount for attachment to a monopod or tripod. Carrying case, lens cloth, neck strap, and manual included. BAF measurement range: 1 to 127 ft2/acre (0.2 to 39.0 m2/hectare). Diameter accuracy: ±1/4" up to 80' (±6 mm up to 24 m). Diameter measurement range: 2" to 100" (5 cm to 254 cm). Inclination accuracy: ±0.1° typical. Inclination measurement range: ±90°. Height measurement resolution: 0.1' (3 cm). Optics: normal, 1x; magnified, 2.4x. Data communications: serial RS 232 input/output. Operating temperature: -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C). Power: 2 AA or 1 CRV3; 3.0V DC nominal (included). Dimensions: 2.75"W x 2"D x 6.5"L. Weight: 1.1 lbs.

How the Criterion RD 1000 Measures Up:

  • Measure the diameter of tree stems or limbs as well as the heights at which a specified diameter occurs.
  • View the percent slope grade of a plot and determine whether a tree is "In" or "Out" of your sample.
  • Shift the illuminated measurement scales instead of positioning yourself at a distance.
  • Displays direct read-outs of measurements on the in-scope LED. 
  • Adjust the brightness levels seen inside the scope.
  • Use as a slope-corrected BAF-scope for variable plot cruising.
  • Quickly determine the limiting distance for "borderline" trees.
  • Enjoy seamless integration with all LTI's laser rangefinders and compatible software.
