COM-PRO Pocket Transit

Brunton Pocket Transits, typically known as a "BRUNTON", are still considered the most reliable, accurate and most respected field instrument to geologists, surveyors, mining engineers, civil engineers, environmental engineers and foresters worldwide.  This COM-PRO Model 5008 (formerly called the 8700) utilizes a lightweight composite body and a cast NdFeB rare earth magnet needle .

The COM-PRO transit features a single NdFeB magnet that resists demagnetization better than other types of magnets for increased reliability.  Waterproof and accurate to ± 1/2 degree with a 0-360 degree azimuth ring, the  COM-PRO features an induction dampened needle for quick and accurate readings.  And the gear driven magnetic declination adjustment allows for east or west declination settings to 180 degrees.

The vertical angle scale featuring 1 degree increments has a range of ± 90 degrees or 100% grade scale with an accuracy of ± 1/2 degree.  A percent grade scale features increments of 5%.

Other special features include the precision aligned mirror with convenient "see through" sighting capability, short and long sights, composite body material with minimal thermal mass, jeweled bearings, and bubble levels.  Each of these special features helps to increase the accuracy of your measurements.  In addition to the many special features mentioned, every COM-PRO pocket transit comes complete with a comprehensive compass instruction book and leather case.
