HipChain 2.0 This distance measurer is simple to use and light to carry. The distance walked while marking out forest trails is quickly done with this device strapped to your waist. 5000 metres on a slim thread cone allows a case profile that fits close to your body. It comes complete with a full cone of thread and a waist belt. Buckle one on and go measure!
At Fremaco we manufacture a variety of equipment used by field crews surveying rugged terrain. Our main products are Hipchains and wire dispensers.
HipChains measure distances while you walk leaving your hands free. Distance travelled even in difficult conditions is accurately measured without requiring a GPS signal. Hipchains dispense a fine, disposable thread like a cross between a very long tape measure and an odometer. Mounted on your waist belt, the filament pulls out of the hipchain turning the distance counter. Perfect for laying out logging trails or other forestry work. The thread also acts as a visible trail-mark for the reference of follow-on workers cutting trees or sampling.
Wire dispensers are for DCVG surveys of pipelines or other buried metal structures. This process assesses the electric potential gradients of buried pipelines and their integrity by paying out a fine copper grounding wire providing an electrical connection to the pipe and displaying the distance covered.
Electrode Wire Extension Pack (wire pack) comes in in two forms, either the well known hip pack or the new split-box style. The new technology of 3D printing allows Fremaco to make custom orders of small quantities of the complex, sturdy components. Customization and additional fittings are available to perfectly suit the field crews and their requirements
For over thirty years customers around the world have relied on Fremaco products.
