Runton 125Th Anniversery Standard Transit Compass
Brunton is offering 125 lucky persons to own the one-of-a-kind 125th Anniversary Limited Edition of the Transit. This is a small, pocket-sized version of the classic Brunton Transit. The Transit is a favorite among geologists. Surveyors, archaeologists, mining engineers, environmental engineers, and the US Army also rely on the precision of this compass.
The Transit Anniversary Edition utilizes the same magnetic induction damping technology of the original design. It guarantees precision navigation a lot better than other compasses. Other systems use fluid dampening systems to compensate for needle oscillation.
Brunton fabricated the Standard Transit from a solid aluminum block. The company CNC-machined the block to create an indestructible body. It also hard-anodized the outer surface to give the block a scratch-resistant finish. This ensures you get to keep the 125th Anniversary Edition looking brand new for another 100 years.
The device comes with an improved compass needle. It features an ingenious NeFeB disk magnet. This technology allows the device to resist demagnetization that can occur over time. It also improves overall resistance to shocks and vibrations.
At the bottom of the precision compass is a nonslip foot made of industrial-grade silicone. This feature allows for precise strike and dip measurements at low angles. Brunton protected the internal components using an O-ring type of seal. It can withstand occasional showers and high levels of humidity. However, this is a device that is never at home underwater.
Shooting bearings is also easy with the pairing of long and short sights. The transparent sights can ensure a bearing shooting accuracy within ½”. It also has 1” graduations to allow for better fine-tuning.
The Brunton 125th Anniversary Standard Transit is a breath of fresh air at a time when almost everyone relies on GPS technology. This is a device that is perfect for true navigation warriors.
