Use the Postex® Laser system to determine coordinates
and to position individual trees.
The Postex instrument solution is a versatile system for individual
positioning in coordinate systems on sample plots. The Postex system is
often used in combination with Haglöf Sweden computer caliper models DP
II or Digitech Professional and software application Postax. Data can be
exported as a CSV file, which can be easily consumed for visualization
and analysis in, for example, ArcGIS Online. With the Postex Laser, you
can gather more field data in less time, and using reliable technology.
The Postex instrument solution has been developed in collaboration with
The Postex Laser instrument system allows you to
Select height measuring method depending on terrain and situation.
Work with high precision laser with filter function as well as proven
reliable ultrasound technology.
The Postex Laser instrument is rugged and has an easy-to-use
interface. Results can be transferred with Bluetooth or IR to your
computer caliper or handheld.
For optimal efficiency, use the Postex Laser instrument in a complete
system solution including the DP II computer caliper and software application.
Also available: The DP
Postex® module, for operators that prefer to have a separate height
measuring instrument such as the L5 Laser, or for those who do not need
to measure heights, for example to position ancient remains in the field.
The DP Postex module is used as an add-on to the DP caliper and
integrates directly with the caliper and software.
Set X and Y coordinates on individual trees
Measure long and short distances with speed and accuracy
Select between different height measurement methods
Use in an entire Postex system with computer caliper and custom software

Bluetooth® and IR communication.
SINGLE TREE POSITION, X AND Y COORDINATE POSITIONS AND PLOT RADIUS
Perform a sample plot inventory to get X and Y coordinate positions
of individual trees.
PUT THE PLOTS AND POSITIONS OF SINGLE TREES ON THE MAP
Use the DP
II or Digitech Professional caliper and the software Postax
DP together with the Postex Laser.
Measure and store tree species, diameter and height along with the
coordinates for the individual tree and plot.

The Postex Laser includes both ultrasound and laser
technology, allowing you to measure in all types of terrain
The Postex includes high precision laser technology, ideal
for speedy results and to measure distances up to 700 meters. Image

For shorter range and in particular for circular plot
inventory and also for working in dense forest, use the
proven and reliable Vertex ultrasound method. The ultrasound
method is fundamental for positioning individual trees with
Postex Laser. Sample
Plots with Ultrasound
The Postex offers different options to measure heights.
Choose when you are at the site depending on surroundings
and needs. Tree
The Postex Laser instrument presents angles in degrees,
grads and percentage. The camera-type monopod with
foot-bracket is an accessory that can be used with the
Postex, the VL5 and the L5 when a steadier aim is required. Angle
HEIGHT MEASUREMENT METHODS
2-point height with ultrasound
The Postex Laser instrument includes a laser filter that allows for
flexible measuring. Select to measure the closest object, the farthest
object or the object that emits the strongest reflection.
SYSTEM WITH PROVEN RELIABLE COMPONENTS
The Postex Laser instrument is based on proven functional instrument
IV and VL5
Vertex Laser from Haglöf Sweden. The custom T3 transponders are special
programmed from the well-known ultrasound system configurations for
Vertex IV and VL5.
Built-in IR and Bluetooth® technology allow for transfer of measured
values to the DP II or Digitech Professional or other handheld units
with dataformat NMEA or ASCII.
CUSTOM PROGRAM FOR CALIPER
Perform your most efficient work with the Postex Laser in a system
incorporating a Haglöf Sweden computer caliper and custom software. The
Postex solution is available in different system settings and
DIFFERENT SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS FOR DIFFERENT NEEDS
The Postex is available in different systems for different measuring
needs. Ready-made software such as the Postax DP for Haglöf Sweden
computer calipers allows for data capture and processing in a seamless
flow for enhanced efficiency. Contact us for custom software and
