Welcome to the MicroTim Altimeter Website !!






Why use a MicroTim Precision Digital Barometric Altimeter / Barometer / VSI?


MicroTim is FASTER and MORE ACCURATE than any typical GPS unit or wristwatch altimeter.


· Lightweight and portable. Easily moves from truck to backpack to recreational vehicle. Dimensions 3”x1.5”x3/4”. Weighs less than 2 oz.

· Large Display (3/8” tall numbers).

· Moisture and shock resistant. Resin-filled to resist vibration, shock and moisture.

· Resolution of 1 foot. Registers altitude changes of 2  feet or less.

· Factory calibrated from –2000 feet (BELOW sealevel) to +20000 feet (ABOVE sealevel).

· Responsive. Fast update rate. This digital altimeter will keep up with an analog altimeter. Neither GPS nor wristwatch altimeters will do this.

· MSL (mean sea level)  and AGL (relative) altitudes or can be set to show both, alternately every 2 seconds.

· Barometric pressure adjustable.

· Can be configured to act as a high-precision BAROMETER (0.01 inHg resolution).

· Battery monitoring—low battery warning gives several days of notice so you will not get caught on a trip with a dead battery.
