FISCHER Precision Aneroid Barometer 103PM  Review

We recently did get the following review of our flagship 103PM from Michael Brown [USA]. Needless to say that we were very happy about this review and the thanks:

„I purchased barometer 103pm serial # 3548 from starpath via ambient weather. I have waited many years to obtain a precision aneroid barometer and am pleased to report the instrument is spectacular in accuracy. I find the workmanship to be absolutely fantastic as well.

I wanted to contact you directly to express my thanks for producing such a fine instrument. I am very proud to own it and especially enjoy its design as well as the execution. Well done!

And again, thank you for producing such a fine instrument. Superior workmanship and design seems ever rarer in this world of mere consumables.
Please communicate my delight to your workers…they deserve praise for doing such a fine job. Again, thank you!!!“

FISCHER ecofort hair hygrometer in use: Conservation of West African desert crocodiles

For years the ecofort GmbH Nidau (CH) familiar on the synthetic hair hygrometer from FISCHER. Now this hygrometer is used for the conservation of West African desert crocodiles:

The ecofort GmbH supports the efforts of Michel Ansermet (research associate of Aquatis, the formerly Vivrarium de Lausanne) to preserve the West African desert crocodiles from extinction. In Europe there are only 3 such crocos, in Lausanne is the only couple. While there were 1946 in Africa more than one million of them, today only 1,500 to 3,000 of these animals are counted.

Nature has done with the help of Michel Ansermet a miracle.
