It combines the functions of a rangefinder and an inclinometer in one tool, and it can be turned into a digital spirit level by clicking it into the measuring rail R 60 Professional, which has been specially designed for this purpose. As a result, this all-rounder covers a very wide range of applications and sets new standards in the measuring technology segment.
Obtain the result faster thanks to easier height and distance measurement
The GLM 80 Professional replaces the laser rangefinder DLE 70 Professional. Tried-and-tested functions such as the calculation of areas and volumes or the minimum-maximum function have been kept. Indirect distance and height measurement, which previously required several exactly leveled measurements, is now made easier by the integrated tilt sensor. It works on both axes of the tool and covers a radius of 120 or 360 degrees depending on the reference side. This sensor makes it possible, for example, to calculate the height of a building with a single measurement. To do this, you aim at the top edge of the house wall, so that the laser is reflected. The tilt sensor then automatically detects the angle of inclination, and the tool calculates the corresponding height using the sine function. Using the same principle, it is also easy to measure distances to surfaces like glass facings, which do not reflect the laser beam: You simply aim at a reflection point above the pane and the GLM 80 Professional will quickly and reliably calculate the actual distance using the tilt sensor and the sine function.
The GLM 80 Professional measures distances of up to 80 meters and has a typical accuracy of ± 1.5 millimeters. All data can be read on the large, illuminated display, which turns automatically as soon as the tool is moved from a vertical to a horizontal position. The tool is operated using very clearly arranged buttons labeled with symbols, and is powered by a lithium-ion battery that is charged using a micro USB cable. Up to 25,000 individual measurements are possible per battery charge. Moreover, the GLM 80 Professional is only 111 x 51 x 30 millimeters in size, weighs 140 grams and can even be carried to the jobsite in jacket or trouser pockets.
A completely new application with only one click
When clicked into the measuring rail R 60 Professional, which has been specially developed for this purpose, the GLM 80 Professional becomes a digital spirit level. The integrated rail detection system ensures that when the tool is switched on, it automatically switches to the inclination measuring mode and the display turns accordingly. This enables, for example, the inclines of rafters and stringers to be checked or sanitary objects such as shower tubs to be aligned, all with an accuracy of ± 0.2 degrees. An audio signal is emitted at 0 and 90 degrees to help with this.
