The easy-to-handle precision tool for the passionate do-it-yourselfer who wants to comfortably and quickly determine the exact dimensions of distances, surfaces and volumes at the press of a button even in hard-to-reach places – the new BD16 distance meter. They profit from flawless results and optimally calculate the required materials like paint, parquet or tiles.
The BD16 is the ideal tool for do-it-yourselfers and craftsmen due to its measurement precision with a deviation of only 3 millimetres and a maximum range of around 40 metres. You can quickly and easily determine the exact dimensions of distances, surfaces and volumes and calculate floor and wall surface areas and room volumes without errors with the BD16 thanks to the laser measurement.
How it works
Despite its wide range of functions, the BD16 is extremely easy to use because each setting has its own button. In addition to the ‘Pythagoras’ and ‘Double Pythagoras’ features, which allow for an indirect distance and height or partial height calculation, other features worth mentioning include the ability to measure distances, surfaces and volumes in a matter of seconds, continuous measurement mode with MIN and MAX tracking and the addition and subtraction of the measurement results.
Because the precise measurement of the levelness, the meter is also equipped with a spirit level function in the form of an integrated spirit level. The user-friendly, automatic storage of the last 10 measurement values and the automatic shut-off for the laser after 30 seconds and for the entire measurement instrument after 3 minutes are additional plus points for the meter.
The size, illuminated multi-line display with its white, reader-friendly, inverted characters is encased in a robust, dust and spray-water-resistant housing in accordance with IP54. The all-around successful equipment of the BD16 is completed with a practical belt clip.
Four of the numerous advantages that I particularly like:
- the wide measuring range of 0.05 to 40 m
- the indirect distance and height or part height calculation
(3-point Pythagoras functions)
- the precise measuring of distances, areas and volumes in a matter of seconds
- the illuminated multi-line display
