( Norcross, Dec 1st, 2007) The Leica DISTO™ D3 is a multi-functional instrument that ensures simple, quick and reliable measurements. Measuring distances of up to 325ft within 1/16” – in spite of nearby obstructions – and determining angles quickly and precisely is done easily. The cutting edge Leica DISTO™ D3 is the smallest most reliable laser distance meter in the world that fits into every pocket.

Measuring made easy – the versatile DISTO with a modern look The Leica DISTO™ D3 is prepared for all measuring situations: Aim the instrument straight at the target point, whether measuring out of corners, slots or from edges: with the multifunctional end piece you are prepared for all. The instrument detects the end piece automatically, which helps avoid expensive measuring errors. The instrument's built-in tilt sensor quickly and simply determines tilts up to ± 45°. The tilt sensor can also provide the user with true horizontal distances. Reliable measurements are therefore guaranteed in all situations.

Automatic keypad and display illumination, multiple functions While measuring, a built-in sensor detects if the environment is dark and switches on the illumination of the keypad and display. So even measurements in the dark can be done without any problem. In addition, the Leica DISTO™ D3 is equipped with multiple functions – it can calculate areas, volumes, room dimensions and supports various types of Pythagorean functions. A time delay release and enough memory for up to 20 measurements finish off the instruments wide range of functions – a concept designed to make your work easier.
