Suunto KB-14/360R 0-360 Azimuth Compass

The Suunto KB-14/360R is a precision compass with adjustable sighting eyepiece. The KB-14/360R is an azimuth 0-360 model graduated in 1 units. The KB-14 provides an optical reading of bearing to target (foresight) and reverse (backsight). Small backsight bearings are printed above the larger foresight bearings for easier orientation and navigation (see illustration).


The KB-14 hand-bearing compass is an excellent tool for foresters, surveyors and geologists and many others. Suunto bearing compasses are designed to combine extreme accuracy with ease and speed of operation.

Suunto bearing compasses are designed to combine extreme accuracy with ease and speed of operation. The accuracy is 1/3, graduation 1 and the compass weighs only 115 g. The flat, machined aluminum 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.

Note: Our Suunto compasses are balanced for use in Zone 1, which encompasses the Northern Hemisphere. Our compasses will work in other regions, but you might have to tilt the compass to allow the needle (compass rose) to float freely. See "Balancing for geographic zones" document below.

The compasses have been given permanent anti-static treatment. The lens apertures of the Suunto KB-14 and KB-20 types are restricted horizontally by a column, which automatically centers the eye on the optical axis, thus eliminating parallax.

DIRECTIONS:

Keep both eyes open and aim with the compass so that the sighting line meets the target when viewing through the lens. In R-models the main scale indicates the bearing to the target you are aiming at and the reversed scale indicates the bearing from your target to the aimed location. This feature is of great help, especially at sea, when determining exact locations. Use your left or right eye for reading the compass depending on your personal preferences. When both eyes are open, an optical illusion makes the sighting line extend above the body of the compass over the target. This increases reading accuracy and speed.
