VECTRONIX PLRF15C “MIL-SPEC” LASER RANGEFINDER ORIENTATION DEVICE
THE ULTIMATE LASER RANGEFINDER THERE IS NO BETTER OR HIGHER SPEC, PRECISION OR QUALITY IN EXISTENCE TODAY!.. BUT THIS IS MUCH MORE THAN JUST A RANGEFINDER.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS LISTING THEN I ASSUME THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT THE PLRF15C IS AND ARE AWARE OF THE SUPERB AND UNMATCHED BUILD QUALITY AND PRECISION, TOGETHER WITH OPTICS THAT ARE SIMPLY UNBELIEVABLE. AND THAT YOU ARE AWARE OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ‘C’ (for compass) MODELS LIKE THIS ONE FOR SALE HERE AND THE BASIC PLRF10 (range only) MODELS THAT SELL SECOND HAND FOR £3,500+ IF YOU CAN FIND ONE THAT IS.
SO OTHER THAN TO SAY THAT THE PLRF15C RANGEFINDER RETAILS AT OVER £6,500 + VAT AND THAT THIS ONE IS IN SUPERB CONDITION, I CAN ONLY QUOTE A FEW PARAGRAPHS FROM THE RELEVANT VECTRONIX BROCHURES (I can send you these in pdf files via email if you require them for more technical data or info)
I HAVE LOST THE ORIGINAL OPERATOR MANUAL BUT DO HAVE ONE FOR A ‘VECTOR’ MODEL (also in pdf) WHICH USES AN ALMOST IDENTICAL MODULE & MENU SYSTEM TO THIS PLRF15C AND IS THEREFORE COMPATIBLE. OR THE NEW OWNER COULD EASILY EMAIL VECTRONIX FOR A COPY OF AN ORIGINAL. HOWEVER THE UNIT IS EASY TO USE AND THE MENU SYSTEM SIMPLE TO WORK OUT & I NEVER ACTUALLY NEEDED TO REFER TO ONE. (If I do find the original manual it will be included)
NOT ONLY OF USE TO TARGET SHOOTERS OR PROFESSIONAL DEER STALKERS etc. THE PLRF15C CAN BE USED IN MANY OTHER APPLICATIONS SUCH AS, ARCHEOLOGY, GEOPHYSICS, NATURAL HISTORY FILM CREWS, MAP SURVEYING AND PRIVATE SECURITY, TO NAME A JUST A FEW OF THE PROFESSIONS THAT VECTRONIX SELL THESE TO.
My intended use for this was the remote mapping and gridding of a beach on the south Wales coast as part of a high value ‘treasure hunting’ project. Using the device in much the same way as the DGPS unit and Trimble pda used by Time Team geophys crew. Except this would have allowed the “lased” polar vectors to be instantly mapped & gridded onto Google earth and OS maps from a single remote position and at the press of a button instead of walking around with the ranging pole and GPS unit for weeks on end. Poor health and age has let me down and the project has now been abandoned.
WOULD ALSO MAKE THE ULTIMATE “BLING ITEM” FOR YOU GOLFERS. (A hole in 1 at 2000m+ would really put you in the record books).
Forward air control
Rapid surveying and mapping
Control of docking and underway replenishment
Peacekeeping and reconstruction
Search and rescue
Lean and mean
PLRF10 and PLRF15 are laser range finders, pure and simple.
Press a button, point at an object and read the slope distance in
meters, feet or yards. The object may be as close as 5 meters and
as far as two or three kilometers, across a river, high on a roof or
deep down in a canyon.
But ‘C’ Is For Compass option
PLRF10C and PLRF15C are “mini laser location and orientation
tools”. The C indicates their DMC Digital Magnetic Compass
feature. This small addition provides a wealth of additional data:
azimuth or bearing, inclination or elevation; horizontal distance and
height difference – not only between the observer and an object,
but also between two remote objects A and B.
Further functions are available as a software option called “Fall of
The RS232 interface permits the
rapid, error-free data transfer of
distance, azimuth and elevation to
command and control systems.
Computers or GPS receivers such
as PLGR, DAGR and various Garmin
models will automatically convert the
measured polar vector into target
PLRF uses standard 3 V lithium batteries,
type CR123A. One pair lasts
for over 10.000 measurements in the
basic PLRF and over 5.000 measurements
in the PLRF with compass.
THE PLRF15C IS THE ‘HEART’ OF THE S.O.R.D. PACKAGE AVAILABLE FROM VECTRONIX. LINK THIS PLRF15C UP TO A TRIMBLE NOMAD OR SMALL LAPTOP LOADED WITH ATRAG OR FFS BALLISTIC SOFTWARE ADD A HORUS KESTREL AND WEATHER YOU ARE A LONG RANGE TARGET SHOOTER OR PROFESSIONAL DEER STALKER etc YOU WILL GET FIRST ROUND HITS EVERY TIME AND ALL THE TIME AT EXTREME RANGES. VECTRONIX STATE OUT TO 3000M BUT I HAVE CONSISTENTLY RANGED OBJECTS AT WELL OVER 4000M.
