Suunto Inclinometers - Survey tools for solar energy engineers

The Suunto PM-5 and Tandem are rugged and durable inclinometers for measuring roof pitch angles safely from either the ground or loft. They are especially useful for situations where it is impractical or perhaps impossible to gain access to the roof to measure the pitch.

What are they?

Both the Suunto PM-5 and the Suunto Tandem are rugged and durable inclinometers for measuring roof pitch angles safely from either the ground or loft. The Tandem has the additional feature of squared-body edges for contact measuring and a built-in compass.

Suunto Tandem in use

Both use high-end jewelled bearings and parallax-free optics securely housed in an anodized aluminium casing which protects them from impact, corrosion and water. They are supplied in a nylon carrying pouch with a belt loop for easy portability. Each one is individually calibrated and comes with a 2 year defects warranty.

Unlike most inclinometers, they do not use batteries or power sources and so will always be ready to use straight out of the toolbox.

What are they for?

The Suunto PM-5 and the Suunto Tandem can be used for measuring roof pitches to +/- 1 degree accuracy onto which your planned solar array will be placed. These tools are especially useful for situations where it is impractical or perhaps impossible to gain access to the roof to measure the pitch. Additional uses include triangulation and the measurement of the heights of distant objects. A handy co-tangent table is printed on the back to assist with these calculations.

What is the difference?

The Suunto Tandem includes a built in compass and straight edges, which allow for precise measurement of the building's orientation.
