Leica Geosystems announced the new Leica DISTO X3 and X4, the latest distance meters for construction sites.                                                      

The laser distance meters withstand drop tests from a height of 2 meters, are dust- and water-protected (IP 65) and are therefore suitable for rugged jobsite conditions. Thanks to the extension possibilities with the Leica DST 360 adapter for Point-to-Point (P2P) measurements and the DISTO Plan app, the meters offer a high level of flexibility and functionality.

"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. Anything is possible – from simple distance measurement, P2P functionality to smart ways of documenting the measured data," says Markus Hammerer, program director, Disto Business at Leica Geosystems. "And all with Leica DISTO’s well-known reliability and precision."

The DISTO X4 is equipped with a Pointfinder camera, allowing users to easily target

distant objects in bright sunlight. Even if the laser cannot be seen by the naked eye, the target appears clearly on the large color display. The high-resolution screen ensures a crystal-clear image. Distance measurements are precise over long distances.

The Leica DST 360 adapter is an addition to the DISTO X3 and X4. It transforms the handheld laser distance meter into a complete measuring station capable of precisely determining the distances between any two points. In combination with the Leica DISTO Plan app, it allows the user to create scaled plans that can be further processed in CAD tools.

The Leica DISTO Plan app assists users with the tasks of documenting and visualizing the captured measurements. Objects can be briefly sketched by hand and then automatically scaled with the measured distances. In combination with the DST 360 adapter or the DISTO S910, it even makes 3D measurement functionality available to capture objects in 2D or 3D. A further innovation is the Smart Room function, which can be used to digitally capture the dimensions of rooms automatically. Finally, the objects can be exported as a CAD drawing or in PDF format. The app supports all Leica DISTO devices that have Bluetooth functionality.
