The Lasico Mechanical Planimeter is an advanced device for measuring medium-sized regular and irregular shaped objects on 2-dimensional maps, drawings, or plans. Its accuracy is better than +/-0.2 percent and its adjustable arm gives you a measuring range of 7 inches by 13.5 inches. Use this plan measurer to determine the dimensions of small or medium-sized objects such as buildings, lots, or ponds and even analyze photos. It is very precise and easy to maneuver. It is especially suited for architects, designers, engineers, surveyors, forestry personnel, medical professionals, and others that need precise measurements of objects from maps, drawings, and plans.
Measure Medium-Sized Shapes
This Lasico Mechanical Planimeter can easily measure any shape – rectangular, oval, elongated, erratic, or anything else. Use it to assess the proportions of structures on blueprints or areas on a map. You can measure man-made objects like buildings, rooms, gazebos, or a rectangular pool. And you can also measure natural objects irregular shapes such as a pond, a land mass, a ditch or any other topography. You can even scrutinize images on X-rays or photographs.
Features That Enhance Accuracy
The Lasico Mechanical Planimeter L10A has several features that enable precise results. The lens’ embedded magnifier helps you to remain as close as possible to the line throughout the measuring process for optimum accuracy. The wheel can be set to zero manually before measuring to ensure that the final results are true. And using the adjustable pole arm increases movement by 20 percent, allowing free movement and better measurements.
Easy to Operate
This advanced mechanical planimeter moves smoothly and is easy to operate. Move the tracer along the outline of the area you want to analyze. The adjustable arms and tilt body design allows you to measure comfortably without having to bend over the device during measurements. Its wheels move directly on the surface of the diagram as you measure. The overall design allows good maneuverability so that you can concentrate on the measuring process.
This Lasico planimeter operates mechanically and includes an optional pole weight for use as a tracer in lieu of the lens. It has a 4-digit display, a dial for manual settings, a drum, and adjustable arm. It comes complete with a carrying case, reference guide, and 1 year limited warranty.
