Suunto Mirrored and Base-Plate Compasses
Suunto Mirrored & Back Plate Compasses
For all of your advanced navigational and map-reading needs
Suunto mirrored and back plate compasses are durable, reliable, accurate, well-crafted, compasses that perform flawlessly under the harshest conditions. One of the defining characteristics of Suunto’s mirrored and back plate compasses is Suunto’s Two Zone System , which has been designed to overcome the effects of inclination .
Inclination refers to the vertical strength and direction of the earth’s magnetic field, which influences the horizontal plane of a compass needle according to the latitude of where a particular compass is being used. The effect of inclination requires compasses to be balanced and calibrated for different geographical zones. Compasses must be balanced when being used in different geographical zones to keep the compass needle in a horizontal position.
In the past, the earth was divided into five different balancing zones. The result was that different compasses had to be used depending what geographical balancing zone you were in. However, as more and more outdoor-life enthusiasts and professionals began to travel more frequently, the need for a compass with a greater geographical scale was required. In response to this requirement, Suunto developed their Two Zone System .
Instead of five geographical balance zones, Suunto has created two: the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere. In fact, Suunto has also developed a globally balanced compass that has completely eliminated the concerns of geographical barriers and the influence of inclination. Subsequently, as you can imagine, Suunto compasses are very popular amongst world travelers, adventurers, and trekkers.
