Leica Geosystems launches two new DISTO™ laser distance meters with gesture-triggered readings

Parul Dubey on April 4, 2024 - in News, Products, Technology

Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, has introduced two new top-of-the-line handheld laser distance meters: the Leica DISTO™ D5 and DISTO™ X6. Powered by the latest measuring technology, the new DISTO™ models boast faster and more accurate measurements, gesture-triggered distance readings, and superior outdoor performance, as well as greater durability and extended battery life. The upgrades and new features optimise workflows for architectural engineers, tradespeople and contractors through improved efficiency and ease-of-use.

The two new devices include an industry-first feature: users can trigger measurements by simply interrupting the laser beam with their hand. This removes the risk of moving the device when pressing a button, giving the DISTO™ D5 and X6 unrivalled long-distance precision.

The DISTO™ D5 and X6 offer 1 millimetre (mm) accuracy and a maximum range of 200 metres (m) and 250 m respectively. They provide exceptional outdoor measuring performance thanks to their integrated digital Pointfinder and high-resolution display that comes with a zoom function. Both devices are equipped with Bluetooth® for seamless integration with the DISTO™ Plan App.

The DISTO™ X6, the most advanced device in the DISTO™ range, can be paired with the smart DST 360-X tripod adapter, enabling point-to-point (P2P) measurements. This provides a safe, accurate and efficient method to capture distance measurements in inaccessible areas or complex measuring situations. The device can also create its own DXF and CSV files, providing CAD support while avoiding the need to bring a laptop to site.
