Leica DISTO™ S910 – 300 m Range – P2P Technology
Measure Anything from Anywhere
The Leica DISTO S910 is the first laser distance measurer that captures multiple, accurate measurements in three dimensions from a single location, radically improving the efficiency of common measuring tasks.
SmartBase for the DISTO S910
Smart Base — a bi-axial pivot integrated with the circuit board — is the key hardware innovation. Combined with a more powerful laser, a 360° tilt sensor, and new software — SmartBase enables you to stand back from your target to measure the distances and angles between multiple points.
Smart-base facilitates three new remote measurement functions:
- Point to Point (P2P): Measure the tie distance between two points, even if you are hundreds of feet from your target. Shoot Point 1 then Point 2 and the DISTO S910 displays the distance between them. Widths, heights, diagonals, gaps, it doesn’t matter: Just measure the start and end point and the distance is displayed.
- Smart Area: Shoot the corners of any polygon to determine the area of walls, floors, even complex roof shapes.
- Smart Angle: Shoot three points to measure any angle (including outside angles, which is a first).
Capture and Export Measurement Data
The Leica DISTO S910 connects to compatible mobile apps with Bluetooth and exports DXF files over WiFi.
Bluetooth Smart (4.0)
Send measurements directly to your apps using Bluetooth Smart.
Area / Volume
In area mode, the DISTO determines the area of a rectangle or square in two shots.
Volume mode adds a third vertical shot to calculate volume.
The Trapezium Function is useful for determining the length and slope of a roof section, and the area it covers. The DISTO uses the its internal tilt sensor to calculate the angle and the distance between the shots, which means you can measure roofs accurately from the ground.
Stake Out Function
The stake out function uses the continuous measurement mode to indicate where to place stakes along a stake-out line. Ideal for any situation where you need to place objects at a consistent interval. The display shows the distance to the next stake out point and the DISTO beeps as you approach it.
360° Tilt Sensor
Functions that need to know the angle of the DISTO when the shot is taken are enabled by a highly accurate 360° tilt sensor that determines the angle of the laser. These include Smart Horizontal and Height Tracking modes.
Set a timer to delay a measurement the same way you would with the shutter on a digital camera.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Bluetooth DISTOs & the wifi 3D DISTO are useful for Building Information Modeling (BIM).
With over 20 functions, chances are you are going to use one or two more than the rest. This Favorites function lets you bookmark your most-used functions on the tabs at the bottom of the touch screen.
Smart Horizontal™ Mode
Use Smart Horizontal to determine the level horizontal distance to a target when you have to shoot over an obstacle. The onboard 360° tilt sensor provides an angle measurement so the software can do the math to figure out how much to subtract from the angled shot to get the actual horizontal distance.
When the DISTO is in area or volume mode, you can use the add / subtract function to total up the area of several surfaces, or subtract an area, like a door for example, from a measurement.
Add & Subtract
It’s not always so simple as taking one shot to get the measurement you need. Sometimes its handy to add multiple shots together, or subtract a negative space from a measurement.
As you use the Add/Subtract function, the final result is displayed in the main line, and the last measurement taken is shown above.
Min / Max Function
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.
4x Zoom Pointfinder camera
The onboard digital camera features a 4x digital zoom “point finder” that shows you where the dot is even if you can’t see it with the naked eye. Put the crosshairs on the spot you are measuring to and hit the button. It’s that simple.
Memory stores 30 Displays
Store measurements and images with measurements associated with them.
Shoot the corners of any polygon to determine the area of walls, floors, even complex roof shapes.
With a typical Laser Distance Meter (LDM) you would move from wall to wall to wall to measure each surface. With an S910, you set up once and measure each surface by hitting the corners in a single rotation.
That’s one set-up in total instead of one set-up per wall. The S910’s point-and-shoot-the-corner workflow also makes it much easier to measure irregular shapes.
