BRIC4 – eine DistoX-Alternative?

Seit ein paar Tagen ist das BRIC4 Survey Tool verfügbar. Die technischen Daten sehen schon mal viel versprechend aus. Die ersten Android-Apps unterstützen es auch schon. Leider ist das Gerät gleich mal doppelt so teuer wie ein DistoX.

    • Azimuth:  <0.10° precision, <0.20° accuracy
    • Inclination:  <0.08° precision, <0.15° accuracy
    • Distance:  1 mm precision, 3mm accuracy
  • Redundant accelerometers and magnetometers to detect calibration drift, malfunctions, and magnetic gradients that could affect measurement accuracy.
    • 2x Murata SCA3300-D01 MEMS industrial accelerometers
    • 2x PNI RM3100 magneto-inductive magnetometers
    • Advanced error-detection prevents bad measurements.
