How to choose laser rangefinder?

A laser rangefinder is an optoelectronic device for determining the range to any point or object on the ground. Many people still call the laser rangefinder a tape measure, because this modern tool for calculating distances has almost completely replaced the traditional mechanical tape measure for surveyors and builders, and this is quite understandable, because a laser rangefinder has many advantages over its traditional counterparts.

The advantages of a laser rangefinder

First, you can measure distances alone, just point the device at the target and press a button. This lightweight and compact instrument is convenient and easy to operate, and allows you to measure with high accuracy not only the length, but also the width and height of objects, calculate volumes and areas, and perform arithmetic calculations. In this case, the laser rangefinder allows you to save the measurement results in its memory.

Just imagine that you need to measure the distance between detached buildings, while it is raining. You and your colleague unwind the measuring tape, it gets dirty in the mud, the wind does not allow enough tension, and you enter the measurements in the field book with a pencil. In this case, it is advisable to repeat the measurements several times to calculate the average value, however, the accuracy will be questionable, especially when working at long distances, or on a slope. In addition, cloth strips break, plastic ones deform, and metal ones rust and break.

However, now you have a laser tape measure in your pocket - and you simply put it to the building, aim at the desired object, while the pointer allows you to see exactly where you are taking measurements, and press the button. After a split second (maximum a few seconds, when working at a considerable distance), the device displays all the necessary information on the screen, and you can save it in the instrument's memory, re-measure or turn on the average distance calculation mode. Some models are equipped with an inclinometer for measuring slope distances.

How to choose and buy a laser rangefinder?

When buying a laser tape measure, you need to understand for what purpose it will be used and in what conditions.

Household laser tape measures

If you work mainly indoors, and are looking for a tool for home renovation, installation or finishing work, look for inexpensive models with a basic set of functions. As a rule, such tape measures are capable of measuring distances up to 25-30 meters, allow calculating the area and perimeter of premises, and have a display backlight for operation in low light conditions.

Note the possibility of measuring ultra-short distances, or offset measurements if you need them. Some models allow you to select both the front and the front of the device as a reference point, which is very convenient for producing edge alignment. With a folding heel, you can measure from inside corners, crevices and edges.

Professional rangefinders

If the production of measurements is the subject of your professional activity like laser rangefinders for hunting, then it is advisable to consider more advanced laser rangefinders, with a long operating range. And the presence of additional functions, such as, for example, the presence of slots for memory cards and the ability to measure tilt angles. Professional rangefinders are equipped with an extended set of functions for the production of the most complex calculations and calculations.

When working at long distances, or outdoors on a bright sunny day, it is almost impossible to see the point, so many professional models are equipped with an optical or electronic viewfinder. Be sure to pay attention to the protection of the device from external adverse factors, such as dust and moisture, because you may have to work in the field in the rain, or the laser tape measure will fall into the dirt at the construction site.
