The Leica DISTO™ D810 Touch is a 15 measurement mode LDM accurate to 1/16th of an inch. It features a touch screen UI,  integrated digital camera, a tilt sensor, and Bluetooth Smart.

The D810's exclusive Measure in Picture (MIP) technology can determine the height, width, area, diameter, or circumference of an object in a picture taken by the D810.  Bracket your target using pointers on the touch screen to remotely measure the width of a second story window, the area of a billboard, or the diameter of an above-ground tank.

With a 600'-plus range, the D810 Touch can acquire a target that is well beyond your eye's ability to see the laser point, especially outside. The point finder -- a 4x zoom digital camera with cross hairs on the LCD display -- solves this problem.

The farther you can shoot, the more obstacles there are to get in the way. Smart Horizontal allows you to shoot over obstacles so you can measure the level horizontal distance to your target.

At distance, even a small wobble in the tool translates to the laser point bouncing in wide arcs on your target. For best results when measuring long distances, keep your dot steady with a tripod and an adapter. The D810 Pro Pack includes a D810, a TRI70 Tripod, Leica's patented FTA360 Fine Tune Adapter,  and a hard case to keep it all organized.

    Send measurements directly to your apps using Bluetooth Smart.

    See our App Directory for a list of apps that all kinds of professionals are using to transform the way they work.

    See our blog for more information about device compatibility.

     

     

    The free Leica DISTO Sketch App lets you take a picture with your iPhone and layer measured lines on top of it.

  • Follow these 5 simple steps:

    1. Using a tripod or FTA360, locate your D810 touch perpendicular to the object you’re measuring and switch it on.
    2. From the FUNC touchscreen, select the MWP icon .
    3. Use the “pinch-zoom” on the touch screen so the measured object fills >50% of the D810 touch display
    4. Press the MWP key once to switch on the laser. Aim to the object’s center. Press the MWP key again to measure the distance.
    5. Touch and activate the left arrow in the display (becomes red) the use the “+” and “-” touch keys to align the arrow to the left side of the object. Repeat for the right side of the object. The width is updated on the display, typical accuracy is 1% of the width.

    The Diameter function uses Measure in Picture technology to determine the diameter of cylindrical objects, like tanks.

    The read out also provides circumfrence (top number) and circular area.

     

     

  • Lecia DISTO

    The big receiver lens and the module it is connected to can see a laser dot outside at distances of over 600 ft, depending on conditions.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Triangle / Room

    The simple area function is great when a room is a square or rectangle, but what if you have to determine the area of a room that has more than four corners? That is where the triangle function comes in. Divide the room into imaginary triangles, take three shots for each and then add them up. The DISTO will also tell you circumfrence and the angle of the triangle.

  • Painter Function

    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.

  • Two Point Pythagoras

    Take indirect height and width measurements using the Pythagorean Theorem.

    Three Point Pythagoras

    The key is to make sure your second shot -- the "rectangular shot" -- is perpendicular to the point you are measuring, shown as the 90° angle in the images. The best way to ensure accuracy is to use a tripod and an adapter.

  • Trapezium Function

    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.

  •  

     

     

     

    Indirect distance measuring between two points. The reported measurements also include the horizontal distance between the two points, the vertical distance between the two points, and the angle between the points.

  •  

     

    "Real time" height tracking for situations where you can hit a reflective target (like the ground) on the low end, but not at the top. Perfect for measuring the height of an overhead wire, for example.

  •  

     

    Measure slopes with multiple shots. Each shot is stored as a profile pair that references the step before it.

  • 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.

  • The D810 Touch and S910 Touch are the 1st touchscreen laser distance meters.

    In addition to making it easier for you switch between the functions, you can use familiar pinch and expand motions on the touchscreen to zoom the camera in or out.

    In Measure in Picture mode, you can tap and hold the brackets used to identify the points in the picture that you want to measure.

     

  • Bluetooth DISTOs are useful for Building Information Modeling (BIM).

  • That's right: A sixteenth of an inch.

    Take out a pair of earbuds. Look at how wide the 1/8" jack is.

    Now divide that by half.

  • Pointfinder

    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.

  • 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.

  • Intelligent Endpiece

    The endpiece is an integral part of the tool, connected to the circuit board.

    In the closed position the DISTO knows to measure from its base.

    Flip it open 90 degrees to align the base perfectly on an edge or corner.

    Flip it out all the way and you can put this baby in a corner to accurately measure diagonals. Otherwise, the width of the base would prevent you from getting aII the way into the corner, rendering the measurement inaccurate.

  • 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.

  • Store measurements and images with measurements associated with them.

  • Set a timer to delay a measurement the same way you would with the shutter on a digital camera.

  • The Ingress Protection (IP) rating was developed by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) to create a standard of toughness.

    The first number, in this case a 5 out of 6, is the rating for protection against dust. The second number, in this case a 4 out of 8, is the rating for protection against liquids.

    See the Certifications page for detailed information about the IP standard.

  • The dual lense digital camera employs a wide field lens and a 4x zoom lens to power Measure in a Picture (MIP) technology -- the most advanced handheld remote measurement technology currently available.

    Combined with the data returned by the laser and the tilt sensor, the software uses the fixed focal lengths of the lenses to determine height, width, and area in MIP mode or the circumference and volume in Measure a Cylinder mode.

    The unit stores images with measurements laid over them for recall on the device or to download later, an especially useful feature for as-built measuring or Building Information Modeling (BIM).

     

  • The D810's Lithium Ion battery is recharged via a mini-USB. Plug it into the wall for fast charging, or plug it into a computer to charge and access the image gallery.

  • This DISTO will take approximately 4000 measurments per charge.

  • The D810 is like that big Swiss Army knife you always wanted, the one with all the doodads.

    The compass is useful for answering questions like, "Wait. Is this the north elevation or the west elevation?" or "Which way am I facing?"

  • Personalize Favorites

    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.

Exterior Measuring

Two of the biggest struggles people have using a laser distance measurer outdoors are navigating obstacles and seeing the laser dot. Leica DISTOs get around those problems with functions like add/subtract, Pythagoras, Measure in a Picture and the built in outdoor laserfinder camera. In this video, one of our team shows proper Measure in a Picture function technique using the laserfinder camera outdoors.
