The Leica Disto A8 Digital Laser Distance Meter can measure distances of up to 200m with an accuracy of just 1.5mm.
The Leica Disto A8 with its digital viewfinder and integrated tilt sensor is another revolutionary product from Leica Disto offering a whole realm of new measuring possibilities.
Using the three times digital zoom you can easily target with the blended in cross hairs. The brightness of the greyscale's display can be manually adjusted; ideal for poorly contrasting targets! The tilt sensor does not only indicate angles, but also real horizontal distances and various indirect height measurements. This function is exclusive to the Leica Disto Distance Meter.
Any slope/angle can be easily measured by just placing the instrument on the slope, just like a digital builder's level! By combining the digital viewfinder with the tilt sensor the first measurement in a three point (Pythagoras) indirect height calculation can be measured without actually having to take a measurement with the laser. In addition to the above features, the A8 has the same functions as the Leica Disto A5.
The measurement range is from 5cm to 200m. The A8 also has Power Range Technology and an accuracy of 1.5mm.
The Leica Disto A8 comes complete with two AA batteries, carry pouch and instruction manual.
This Leica Disto A8 is especially popular with forestry workers, scaffolders, crane workers, cherry picker rental companies and all other applications where indirect height measurements are required.
