Electronic caliper CODIMEX E1-Log id designed for measurement of logs. It is equipped with specially designed jaws that allow to measure the diameter of forhead of log without taking into account the thickness of the bark. Jaws have a special shape that differs from jaws in standard calipers – they are profiled as in the picture below. The advantage of the caliper is the short jaws, which facilitates the transport and improves the measuring accuracy of the logs. A wooden marking crayon is mounted to the upper jaw of the caliper, which, after the measurement, marks the log so that it does not duplicate the measurement and the wireless 1D scanner for barcode reading. Due to the fact that the jaw edge length is 5 cm – the scale on the beam of this caliper starts at 5 cm.
Measurement of the diameter is achieved by placing the jaw to the forhead of the log at the shortest diameter as shown in the picture. The calipers specially designed jaws allow to measure the diameter of the log forhead without taking into account the thickness of the bark. After measurement result can be send via blutooth to application LOG-caliper installed on smartphone by pressing the button on the caliper body.
Measurement accuracy is 0.5 cm, but in application is rounded down to full value.
The barcode scanner connects to the mobile device (smarrtphone, tablet) via Bluetooth module and by pressing the “scan button” on the side of the device the number from marking tag is send to the application level. If barcode scanning is not possible, you can always manually enter the stack number / log at the application level.
The application is installed on Android OS mobile devices (smartphone) and works with electronic caliper Codimex E1-Log. Application Log-caliper is used for the measurement of logs. Measurement data is saved in smartphone memory and can be exported as a CSV file (excel). You can export the file from your smartphone by sending via Bluetooth or email and directly copying it via a USB cable to your computer.
Get free trial versions of the Log-caliper (free 20 measurements) and check advantages and how simple it is!
Before making measurements define parameters such as:
– Forest address
– Length of logs
– Choose the method of calculating the thickness
– Timber class
The Log-caliper application allows to check and edit saved data. Thanks to that it is possible to remove the wrong measurements and check the summary of the work (eg volume of wood in m³ , classification into thickness classes, etc.).
To export data to another mobile device (computer, laptop), in the menu enter the “export” option and generate the corresponding file in CSV format. It is possible to generate a file for all measurements or separately for different methods.
