Leica DISTO™ e7400x MAIN laser measure

The Leica DISTO™ E7400x is a 9 measurement mode LDM ​ intended for use on active job sites. It features a precision laser module, a backlit LCD display, a tilt sensor, and a ruggedized chassis. 

The E7400x has a 2 meter drop rating, doesn't mind getting dirty or wet, and we have loaded it up with technology that makes it easy to get hard measurements like:

  • Rough openings: Metal tapes have a way of bending just as you almost get them into the far corner, making it difficult to measure the diagonal of a wide opening by yourself.

    This video shows how to use the Intelligent Endpiese and continuous laser mode to easily get diagonal measurements.

  • Obstacles: Straight measurements can be hard to get on active sites.

    Smart Horizontal allows you to shoot on an angle to get over or under obstacles, and then uses data from the tilt sensor to subtract the extra distance to arrive at the level horizontal measurement. Not only does the DISTO do all the math, you don't have to move a stack of drywall.

 

With a range of up to 395', a small wobble in the tool can translate to the laser point bouncing in wide arcs on the target . For best results when measuring long distances, keep the dot steady with a tripod and a TA360 Tripod Adaptor.

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.

Accurate to 1/16 of an inch Icon Accurate to 1/16 of an inch

That's right: A sixteenth of an inch. Take out a pair of earbuds. Look at how wide the the 1/8" jack is. Now divide that by half.

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.

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.

IP65 Icon IP65

"IP" stands for Ingress Protection. 

The Ingress Protection (IP) rating was developed by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) to create a standard of toughness for electronic devices: Higher numbers mean more resistance to dust and water.

For more information on IP ratings, see the IP section on the Certification page.

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.

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.

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.

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.
