Designed for active outdoor job sites and to work under tough conditions, the e7400x can roll with the punches. A fiberglass reinforced plastic case and rubberized trim ensure that the E7400x can survive a 2-meter drop and achieve an IP65 rating, but it is the tilt sensor that makes it a job site hero.
Most of the time, a level horizontal measurement is what's needed, but that can be hard to get on an active job site, particularly at the full range of a Laser Distance Meter (LDM).
When a pile of dirt, or a sub-contractor, or some other obstacle is between you and the level measurement you need, switch on Smart Horizontal, shoot over or under the obstacle, and the E7400x will use the angle measurement from the tilt sensor to calculate the level horizontal measurement to your target.
Without Smart Horizontal, an LDM would simply display the distance between it and the target. If you are shooting over something on an angle, that distance is longer than the level horizontal distance.
(Please note: The E7400x is the only DISTO in the lineup that does not have Bluetooth®.)
