The idea behind the first DISTO was to empower people who rely on precise measurements, or who need to measure things in hazardous or inaccessible areas, to transform their jobs. We are still at it.
Starting with accurate measurements early in the process, and to making it easy to re-check measurements on the job meant that even the first LDM people produce a better finished product in less time -- a fact that did not go unnoticed by other tool manufacturers. Now, we focus on adding features (most recently Bluetooth) that extend the ability of LDMs to have a major impact on how people do their jobs.
In 1993, if you wanted an LDM you had one choice – ours. These days, the LDMs you can buy range from inexpensive tools that match the capabilities of the first DISTO to the Leica D810 Touch -- a touchscreen and camera equipped LDM that can determine the height or width of objects within the digital images that it captures.
So which LDM – whether its an 8th generation Leica DISTO™ or not – is right for you?,
