Leica D 810 Touch (Range up to 820′)
The D810 Touch features a touchscreen interface and Measure in Picture (MIP), a measurement mode that uses the point finder on device 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.
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.
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.
Measure in Picture (MIP) technology allows you to determine an object's width, height, surface area, or diameter within a picture taken by the pointfinder camera. 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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The range of the D810 measures up to 820 feet with readings accurate to 1/16th of an inch.
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).
