Le­ica Geosys­tems has launched the new Disto X3 and X4 laser dis­tance me­ters for con­struc­tion sites

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Technology News -

The Disto se­ries of laser dis­tance me­ters are spe­cial­ist sur­vey­ing tools for cal­cu­lat­ing dis­tances and ac­cu­rate to within one mil­lime­tre.

Equipped with a high-pow­ered laser, the Disto units aim to make mea­sur­ing out sites as quick and sim­ple as pos­si­ble.

The Disto X3 is de­signed pri­mar­ily for indoor ap­pli­ca­tions and has a cer­ti­fied range of up to 150 me­tres.

The Disto X4 has been en­gi­neered for both indoor and out­door use and is equipped with a Pointfinder cam­era. This cam­era al­lows users to tar­get dis­tant ob­jects in bright sun­light.

Even if the laser can’t be seen with the naked eye, the tar­get will ap­pear on the unit’s colour dis­play. Both mod­els have been ‘ruggedised’ and fea­ture IP65-class dust and wa­ter pro­tec­tion. Le­ica says the units have been drop-tested and can with­stand a fall of up to two me­tres.

Launch­ing along­side the two laser mea­sure­ment tools are the DST 360 adapter and the Disto Plan app. The DST 360 adapter turns the X3 and X4 into a com­plete point-to-point mea­sure­ment sys­tem, able to cal­cu­late dis­tance be­tween any two points from one po­si­tion.

Bring­ing all the data to­gether is Le­ica’s new Disto Plan smart­phone app, which can doc­u­ment and vi­su­alise the cap­tured mea­sure­ments. Ob­jects can be briefly sketched by hand and then au­to­mat­i­cally scaled to the mea­sure­ments stored.

“This trio of prod­ucts – the Le­ica Disto X-se­ries, Le­ica DST 360 adapter and Disto Plan app – is rev­o­lu­tion­ary be­cause it of­fers the op­ti­mum so­lu­tion for every user,” Le­ica Geosys­tems Disto pro­gram director Markus Ham­merer says.

“Any­thing is pos­si­ble – from sim­ple dis­tance mea­sure­ment, P2P func­tion­al­ity to smart ways of doc­u­ment­ing the mea­sured data.”
