The Leica DISTO™ D510 stands for easy and effortless outdoor distance measurement. The unique combination of digital Pointfinder and 360° tilt sensor allows measurements which are not possible with conventional distance meters. In addition, with Bluetooth® Smart and attractive free apps, you are prepared for the future.

Simple and precise targeting - Pointfinder with 4x zoom
With the Pointfinder, the Leica DISTO™ D510 takes measurements with perfect accuracy and in unfavorable light conditions. This is a decisive advantage when working outside in sunny weather. Even if the red laser point is no longer visible to the naked eye, the target can be seen exactly in the crosshairs on the display.

Unlimited number of measuring options - 360° tilt sensor
The Leica DISTO™ D510 is equipped with a 360° tilt sensor. This means that it is not only possible to measure angles, but horizontal distances too! Combined with the Pointfinder, amazing indirect measurement options are provided. Hence, measurements are possible where no reflective target point is available e.g. when determining the height of a tree or when measuring the height of a reflecting glass facade. These could not be measured with a conventional laser distance meter.

Efficient height profile measurement
Using this function, the Leica DISTO™ D510 displays distances and height differences to an established reference point. This makes it easy to quickly make profile measurements, without having to use more expensive measuring methods. Also, this function can be used to check whether cross beams are straight, the levelness of existing floors, among other applications.

Quick sketching - Bluetooth® Smart with app
The Leica DISTO™ D510 is capable of more than just measuring. Measurement data can be conveniently and accurately transferred using the integrated Bluetooth® Smart Technology. The free app Leica DISTO™ sketch supports the creation of ground plans or tables on iPhone or iPad. Dimensions can even be entered onto photographs with no effort whatsoever.

Tough and easy to clean - IP 65
The housing and keypad are specially sealed against water and dust. Cleaning under running water is also no problem. Furthermore the laser distance meter can be used in all weather conditions, being dust-proof and water jet protected.

Features and Functions

360° Tilt Sensor Icon 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.

4x Zoom Pointfinder camera Icon 4x Zoom Pointfinder camera

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.

Add & Subtract Icon 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.

Area / Volume Icon Area / Volume

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.

Bluetooth Smart (4.0) Icon Bluetooth Smart (4.0)

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 Leica DISTO™ Plan App lets you take a picture with your iPhone or Android and layer measured lines on top of it.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) Icon Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Bluetooth DISTOs & the wifi 3D Disto are useful for Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Height Profile Tracking Icon Height Profile Tracking

 

 

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

Height Tracking Profile Height Tracking

 

 

 

 

"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.

Add & Subtract Icon Intelligent Endpiece

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 all the way into the corner, rendering the measurement inaccurate.

Memory Stores 30 Displays Icon Memory stores 30 Displays

Store measurements and images with measurements associated with them.

Min / Max Function Icon Min / Max Function

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.

Painter Function Icon Painter Function

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.

Personalize Favorites Icon Personalize Favorites

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.

Pythagoras Function Icon Pythagoras Function

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.

Single Measurement 330ft Range Icon Single Measurement 330ft Range

The big receiver lens and the module it is connected to can see a laser dot outside at distances of over 330ft, depending on conditions.

Sloped Object Measurement Icon Sloped Object Measurement

 

 

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.

Smart Horizontal Mode Icon Smart Horizontal™ Mode

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.

Stake Out Function Icon Stake Out Function

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.

Timer Icon Timer

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

Trapezium Function Icon Trapezium Function

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.

Triangle / Room Icon Triangle / Room

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.
