1608B POLAR Barometer
The POLAR series of instruments includes the most important of meteorological measuring devices the barometer. Designed by Mark Braun, the inspiring qualities of the renowned precision engineering manufacturer FISCHER were translated into a contemporary piece; fit for both home and industrial use.
The accuracy of the 1608B is highlighted with an incisive pointer. The pointer is bent over at its tip and ensures a parallax-free and therefore very precise reading.
The deformation of a flat, airless metal can is used to measure the atmospheric air pressure. Rising air pressure compresses the can, and when the air pressure falls, it expands again. This movement, which is only a few hundredths of a millimetres, is transferred to the pointer of the 1608B with the help of a fine mechanism, and the air pressure is displayed.
