The Leica DISTO D510, designed for outdoor use and adverse site conditions, has a measuring range of 200 metres and accuracy of 1mm.
The D510 has an integrated digital viewfinder (an essential feature for outdoor measuring) with high resolution 2.4” colour display and 4 x zoom. The viewfinder provides a sharp, clear image and makes finding the target easy, even in bright sunlight. The crosshairs on the DISTO display accurately identify the position of the laser dot. After measuring, a screen-shot shows the target point and crosshairs for verification of correct measurement.
To cope with the more challenging type of site conditions, the D510 has additional internal strengthening and protection around the measuring module to withstand a drop from 2 metres. Also with an IP65 dustproof / waterproof rating, it can be washed under running water.
The D510 has a number of clever features and functions, not least being the fact that measurement data can be conveniently transferred using the instrument’s Bluetooth Smart technology. The free app Leica DISTO Sketch supports the creation of plans on iPhone, iPad or Android devices that incorporate Bluetooth Smart. Dimensions can even be entered onto photographs.
Other key features of the DISTO D510 include its 360° tilt sensor which combines the measurement of angles and distances, making easy work of difficult measuring tasks, such as heights of trees, overhead cables and scaffolding; ground profiles, complex heights and height differences; and slope angles and lengths. Also the instrument can display the true horizontal measurement from a measurement taken on the slope, ideal for measuring over obstacles.
