E7500i

The E7500i is first full-size DISTO in the lineup, with a big color LCD screen, a digital pointfinder camera, greater range, and more advanced measurement functions. Like the Job Site DISTOs, it also has IP65 and 2-meter drop ratings. 

This makes the E7500i the ideal DISTO for people who need more advanced measurement functions on active job sites, and a good choice for real estate appraisers, insurance adjusters, or anyone who needs to send measurements directly into compatible apps or software. 

Range: 660ft 1000 ft.
Measurement modes: 14 19
Integrated Bluetooth® Smart technology enables wireless transfer of measurement data to a computer or mobile device, which helps to streamline your workflow and makes your measurement data accessible across multiple devices, apps, and programs. DISTO Apps
This DISTO is accurate to 1/16th of an inch (approx 1.5mm) up to the maximum certified range.
It's not always as simple as taking one shot to get the measurement you need. Sometimes you need to add multiple shots together, or subtract a negative space from a measurement. As you use the Add/Subtract function, the final result is displayed on the main line and the last measurement taken is shown above.
In area mode, the DISTO determines the area of a rectangular or square space in two measurements. Volume mode adds a third vertical measurement to calculate the volume of a space.
Measurements taken by Bluetooth-enabled DISTOs are useful for Building Information Modeling (BIM). For more information on how Leica Geosystems supports BIM across our product line, check out the BIM Field Trip.
This function helps you measure the height differences between 2 or more reference points. Measure slopes with multiple shots. Each shot is stored as a profile pair that references the shot taken before it.
Height Tracking uses the angle reading from the tilt sensor to continuously solve for height. Engage the height tracking function and measure to the base of your target. As you tilt the DISTO up, the laser stays on and the display shows the height of the laser point as it moves higher.  
The intelligent endpiece folds out from the base of the DISTO to help with inside and outside corner measurements, diagonal measurements, and rough openings. The endpiece is directly connected to the DISTO circuit board and automatically adds the length of the endpiece to the distance measured from the base of the DISTO.
  In Min/Max mode, you "sweep" the laser point into a corner. The longest measurement is recorded. Very useful for accurate diagonal room or window/door measurements.
The 'Painter Function' makes it possible to determine a room's wall surface area by simply taking distance and height measurements.
With over 20 functions, chances are you are going to use one or two more than the rest. This Favorites function lets you bookmark your most-used functions on the tabs at the bottom of the touch screen.
Indirect distance measuring between two points.The reported measurements also include the horizontal distance between the two points, the vertical distance between the two points, and the angle between the points.
The combination of distance and tilt measurements allows for quick and precise horizontal measurements. This function makes it possible to measure horizonal distances even if objects block the measurement target.
The stake out function uses the continuous measurement mode to indicate where to place stakes along a stake-out line. Ideal for any situation where you need to place objects at a consistent interval. The display shows the distance to the next stake out point and the DISTO™ beeps as you approach it.
Functions that require the angle of the DISTO when the measurement is taken are enabled by a highly accurate 360° tilt sensor that determines the angle of the laser. These include Smart Horizontal and Height Tracking modes.
Store measurements and images with measurements associated with them.
Take indirect height and width measurements using the Pythagorean Theorem. The key is to make sure your second shot -- the "rectangular shot" -- is perpendicular to the point you are measuring, shown as the 90° angle in the images. The best way to ensure accuracy is to use a tripod and an adapter.
Set a timer to delay a measurement the same way you would with the shutter on a digital camera.
The Trapezium Function is useful for determining the length and slope of a roof section, and the area it covers. The DISTO™ uses the its internal tilt sensor to calculate the angle and the distance between the shots, which means you can measure roofs accurately from the ground.
The simple area function is great when a room is a square or rectangle, but what if you have to determine the area of a room that has more than four corners? That is where the triangle function comes in. Divide the room into imaginary triangles, take three shots for each and then add them up. The DISTO™ will also tell you circumfrence and the angle of the triangle.
The big receiver lens and the module it is connected to can see a laser dot outside at distances of over 600 ft, depending on conditions.

D810 Touch

The D810 Touch features a touchscreen interface and Measure in Picture (MIP), a measurement mode that uses the point finder camera in conjunction with the laser and tilt sensor to measure the width of flat objects or the diameter of round objects (such as tanks) right on a picture taken with the device.

Great for appraisers or adjusters who need a way to take remote measurements (of a second story for example) with ~1% accuracy, the D810 Touch is also a favorite among BIM professionals for taking as-built measurements.

The onboard digital camera features a 4x digital zoom "point finder" that shows you where the laser dot is if you cannot see it. Target the spot you are measuring to with the crosshairs on the screen and press the button to measure.
An onboard compass helps you determine which direction you are facing when taking measurements with this DISTO.
The Diameter function uses Measure in Picture (MIP) technology to determine the diameter of cylindrical objects, like tanks or silos. The display also provides circumference (top number) and circular area.
This DISTO™ will take approximately 4000 measurments per charge. The 3D Disto will typically last a full working day of 8 hours.
The dual lens digital camera employs a wide field lens and a 4x zoom lens to power Measure in Picture (MIP) technology. Combining the photo with the data returned by the laser and the tilt sensor, the software uses the fixed focal lengths of the lenses to determine height, width, and area in MIP mode. The unit stores images with measurements laid over them for recall on the device or to download later, which is useful for as-built measuring or Building Information Modeling (BIM).
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating is the protection level against dust and water. The first number indicates dust, and the second indicates water. An IP54 device is rated to be protected against all dust contact (5) and protected against splashing water (4).
Store measurements and images with measurements associated with them.

Measure In picture

Take a picture with the built-in camera and measure objects in the picture.


s910

The S910 is the only DISTO with Point to Point (P2P) capability built into the device itself. For close range interior measurements, just flip out the Smart Base, pick a measuring position and use the P2P function to take accurate measurements around a room from a single location. Measurements can be compiled in a DXF document for use in CAD.

This makes the S910 a favorite among installers who need accurate measurements (which can be fed to a CNC machine) to cut expensive materials like countertops or commercial glass. 

For long range P2P measurements, use an FTA-S tripod adapter. The FTA-S unlocks the full potential of the S910 1000ft range and 4x zoom pointfinder camera. The S910 and the FTA-S are available together in the S910 ProPacks, which are ideal tools for anyone who needs to get inaccessible measurements on outdoor job sites. The S910 Propack is used by solar installers and by architects and engineers working on commercial projects.

Simply measure the outline of an area – clockwise or counterclockwise – and immediately see the result on the display, no matter how complex the shape of an area is.
The on-board tilt sensor in this DISTO can also be used as a leveling tool.
This DISTO can save all captured measurement points as a DXF file. You can then transfer the DXF file into CAD on your computer.
