D1

Point, shoot, get a measurement. Or, hold the button down to get a continuous measurement as you move closer to or farther from your target.

The Leica DISTO D1 is perfect for home improvement projects like light carpentry, hanging pictures, or checking dimensions for new furniture, but it is much more than a  tape measure replacement.

The D1 connects to mobile devices, making it easy to save, organize, and share measurements. Take a picture using the DISTO Plan app, draw measurement lines on it, then use the D1 to drop precise measurements on your lines. You can also use the DISTO Plan app and D1 to create floorplans.

DISTO Compatible Apps

Precise measurements organized on your smartphone, tablet, or computer can save an incredible amount of time on-site or back at the office, and it makes measurement information easy to share with co-workers, contractors, or a spouse calling from the lumber aisle of the home improvement store. 

In addition to our own free DISTO Plan app, there are many app developers and software companies who publish DISTO-compatible apps to serve a variety of industries and interests.

E7100i

Range: 200ft 1000ft
Measurement Modes: 3 19

The slimmed-down e7100i is about as thick as a deck of cards and fits easily in a briefcase, handbag, or in your pocket. 

The button with a flattened square on it toggles the e7100i to Area Measurement mode, a quick and easy way to determine the area of a square or rectangular room by taking two quick laser measurements. 

The horizontal screen is a nice touch that provides a nice big font size on such a compact device. Measurements can be saved, organized, and shared on your smartphone.

  In area mode, the DISTO determines the area of a rectangular or square space in two measurements.

D2

When millimeters matter, an accurate starting point is crucial. That’s why the D2 has our intelligent endpiece to ensure that measurements are accurate for cutting or taking precise as-built measurements of rough openings. This makes the D2 an ideal choice for carpentry or for installers who need to measure for things like appliances, windows, or doors. 

The intelligent endpiece flips out 90 degrees to hook around an outside corner. Or fully extend it and the D2 to will measure from the tip.  It is directly connected to the circuit board so the D2 can automatically adjust the measuring point to correspond to the position of the endpiece (that's what makes it "intelligent"). 

Combined with Min/Max mode, the intelligent endpiece makes it easy to determine the precise diagonal distance of a square or rectangular opening. Just tuck the endpiece into a corner and hold the On/Diost button down to engage the Min/Max mode, then sweep the opposite corner. The longest "max" distance shown is your diagonal measurement.

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.
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.
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.
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.
  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.
