When is a distance meter worthwhile?

  • Distance measuring devices are valuable tools for determining areas, lengths, widths, heights and volumes. Whether indoors or outdoors, precision and easy handling are the factors that distinguish high-quality measuring devices in this product category. Classic areas of application for distance measuring devices:for measuring room boundaries

  • for the determination of land boundaries

  • to mark out areas or enclosures

  • for the exact alignment of beds with a view to planting experimental plants, trees or shrubs

  • for the precise determination of areas for the goal-oriented execution of tests and experiments.

From CO2 meters to anemometers: At MedSolut you can obtain numerous other laboratory analysers in high brand quality.

How does a laser distance meter work?

A laser distance meter is used for the precise measurement of long distances. The exact distance is determined with the help of a laser beam. The device calculates the time it takes for the beam to travel from the starting point to a specified end point and back again. With laser interferometers, on the other hand, the distance is calculated on the basis of the light reflection of the laser beam.

Distance measurement with laser vs. ultrasound

In addition to measuring tools like the laser distance meter, the ultrasonic distance meter is also known. Both devices differ significantly in terms of their measuring accuracy and possible uses. While the laser distance meter uses a laser beam to determine the distance to the respective target point, the ultrasonic distance meter is different. It emits ultrasonic pulses and measures the distance by analysing the duration from the emission of the pulse to the arrival of the echo.

Top-class laser technologies - for precise measurement results Compared to distance meters that use laser technology, ultrasonic measurement can be inaccurate and give false results. This is because many devices do not display the exact target point, so that the wrong point is aimed at. Would you like to know more about laser distance meters? Then let our experts advise you in detail. We look forward to hearing from you.

Choosing the right distance meter Selection criteria

If you value the highest precision in your measurements, you should choose the high-quality distance measuring devices from the MedSolut online catalogue. Using the following criteria, you can easily find the device that fully meets your requirements:

Measuring range

The measuring range plays a central role in the selection of a distance measuring device. For smaller areas, devices with a measuring range of 0.05 to 80 metres are suitable. If, on the other hand, you want to calculate larger areas, you need a laser distance meter that can measure distances of 150 to 300 metres or even up to 1,000 metres .

Meters with smaller measuring ranges are best suited for measurements inside houses or individual premises, while meters with larger measuring capacities are ideal for outdoor measurements.

Pythagoras function

To check right angles with a laser rangefinder, the Pythagoras function is useful. You measure a distance from the corner at both wall areas to then determine the distance between the end points of the two previous lines. This can be either two wall lines that meet in a corner or the diagonal line that does not pass through the area to be measured. If your instrument does not include a Pythagoras function, the test can also be done by manual calculation.

Minimum-maximum calculation

Particularly powerful distance measuring devices also have the function of the so-called minimum-maximum calculation. Here, a distance is measured several times. Both the smallest and the largest value that can be determined are determined and shown on a well-lit display.

If you frequently measure from edges in the course of your work, instruments in this product category are recommended because you can switch the reference plane as required. This means that the device measures the targeted distance from either the bottom or the top edge.

Tips for measuring distance

  • To generate accurate measurement results, it is important to use a professional laser distance meter that is easy to use and has a high performance and functionality portfolio. We will be happy to take the time to explain the best measuring devices to you in detail. Our expert tips for precise resultsWith the help of a laser target plate you can easily aim at the desired target point when measuring outdoors. The board has a special coating which supports an accurate measurement result. Foldable boards are particularly easy to set up in open spaces and therefore do not require the assistance of a second person.

  • Since hardly any wall or ceiling is ever 100 percent straight, it is generally a good idea to use a distance measuring ruler. Always measure the lengths, widths and heights of a room several times to avoid measurement differences. Sloping walls, bay windows or wall projections can easily be measured using a distance measuring device with an included Pythagoras function.

  • For wall or roof slopes, use the built-in continuous measuring mode of your device. This allows you to eliminate, correct and re-measure possible inaccuracies in squares and rectangles. It is also possible to determine whether walls are parallel or not.

  • Experience has shown that laser distance meters measure far more accurately than ultrasonic distance meters. Therefore, choose distance meters with built-in laser technology and a suitable measuring range. This guarantees precise measurement results.
