The Leica DISTO™ E7500 is a 7 measurement mode LDM that is accurate to 1/16th of an inch. It is rugged IP65 rated against dust, dirt and rain, and features a point finder camera, a bright LCD screen and Smart Horizontal™ mode. 

It is a simple to use laser measurer built to take outdoor measurements at great distances.

The E7500 laser module can read a target at distances that exceed your ability to see the laser point. WIth the point finder  -- a 4x zoom digital camera -- you find your target in the display, extending the useable range to the ~500ft max.

The farther you can shoot, the more potential there is for something 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, a small wobble in the tool bounces the laser point in wide arcs. This is sub-optimal for acquiring reflected laser energy. For best results when measuring long distances, keep your dot steady with a tripod and our Fine Tune Adapter.

Features and Functions

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
