Suunto KB- 14 Story :,,,
compasses are designed to combine extreme accuracy with ease and speed
of operation. The accuracy is 1/ 3° , graduation 1/ 2° and the compass
weighs only 115 g. The flat, compact housing has no protruding or
adjustable parts and are designed to stand up to heavy- duty wear. The
compasses are water resistant.
The cards of these compasses are
immersed in a special dampening fluid that ensures vibrationless, smooth
movement. They are pivoted on polished sapphire tips. The veering
assembly is to all intents and purposes subject to no wear and the
liquid remains clear and its viscosity low under all conditions.
compasses have been given permanent anti- static treatment. The lens
apertures of the KB- 14 and KB- 20 types are restricted horizontally by a
column, which automatically centers the eye on the optical axis, thus
KB- 14 compasses are also available with
efficient lithium battery powered illumination. There is also a rubber
cover accessory for all the KB- 14 versions that is made of a saltwater
and UV- resistant mixture of EPDM and natural rubber.
