    General Information

    Always oriented.

    Orientation at any time of day or night and thus independence from satellite support and electronic helpers ensures this very accurate bearing compass. It comes from Kasper & Richter, a Franconian company founded in 1920 to design and manufacture precision mechanical instruments, which initially produced for industrial customers. Over time, it added an extensive range of counting, measuring and orientation devices, including tools for professional users such as geologists and mountain guides. Kasper & Richter developed our direction finding compass based on the model they produced in large numbers for the Dutch armed forces. Its technology is based on the patented compasses of the Wilkie manufactory, founded by Wilhelm Kienzler, who produced the meridian housings in the early 1970s that Kasper & Richter still use today. Inside is a floating, sapphire-bearing 360° precision wind rose (every degree marked, every 10th degree numerical, counter-course scale), which is fluid-damped, slowing vibration and thus significantly increasing reading accuracy. Exceptional is the thermoelastic fluid capsule used in the Wilkie system, thanks to which no disturbing air bubbles can form in the temperature range from -30 °C to +70 °C. Only for us, Kasper & Richter covers both the 360° scale on the metal rotating ring and the complete compass rose with photoluminescent special paint. Using the compass is much easier than it looks at first. Which data exactly you can determine with the compass and how to do this, is unusually vividly conveyed on the manufacturer's website at www.kasper-richter.de/text/spezial/faq.html.
