Fakopp Microsecond Timer














Microsecond Timer is designed to measure stress wave propagation time in trees. 

The signal is generated by a hammer tap on the start sensor and the unit displays the measured propagation time.

By measuring the distance between the two sensors, velocity can be calculated which can be used to detect hidden decayed parts or holes between the two sensors. This can be done very quickly.

The Fakopp Microsecond Timer package contains:

  • Fakopp Microsecond Timer box

  • Two SD02 sensors with integrated cables and BNC connectors  

  • Hammer

  • Leather case

  • Aluminum reference bar (44 cm long)

  • User’s Manual

  • USB-to-RS232 cable for PC connectivity (no RS232 port needed on the PC side)

  • PC software for raw data acquisition and storage
