Leica DISTO ™ D5 - Overview

Leica DISTO D5 - tilt sensor

Tilt sensor

Thanks to the in-built tilt sensor, you can quickly and simply measure tilts up to ± 45°. The tilt sensor also allows you to measure absolutely horizontally or measure past obstructions (horizontal distance).

Leica DISTO D5 - digital pointfinder

Digital Pointfinder

The integrated digital Pointfinder with a 4x zoom and 2.4" colour display makes finding the target at long distances much easier. Its high resolution capability allows measurements to be taken even in glaring sunshine.

Leica DISTO D5 - Power Range Technology ™

Power Range Technology ™

The integrated Power Range Technology ™ allows you to measure long distances very simply. Measure up to 100 m without a target plate, and even up to 200 m using a target plate, without having to take a single step.

Leica DISTO D5 - Spot On

Spot-on measurement

The laser makes it possible! The laser dot is clearly visible, therefore you always know exactly where you are measuring, which is especially useful in difficult to access places.

The Leica DISTO ™ D5 - Colour Video Pointfinder with 4x zoom

Outside measuring is no problem with the new digital point finder. The new Leica DISTO ™ D5 comes equiped with a Digital Pointfinder that works similar to a viewing screen on a digital camera. The target measuring point is highlighted in the central square even when the laser dot is no longer visible with the naked eye. The DISTO ™ D5 has a clear 2.4" high resolution colour display with automatic brightness control and also has up to 4x zoom magnification to increase the accuracy of your measurements even over great distances. (Call 08452 57218 for further technical advice).

Tilt sensor / Digital Level on the DISTO ™ D5

The accurate integrated digital tilt / incline sensor offers both angle measurements from the horizontal in percentages and degrees clearly on the screen, but it is also used to increase the accuracy of your measuring. True horizontal distances can be calculated using the Leica DISTO ™ D5 Pythagoras functions automatically and is particularly useful when a direct line of sight measurement is not possible. This function is useful if, for example, rough terrain, walls or hedges stand in the line of sight. (Call 08452 57218 for further technical advice).

Improved Accuracy and Range of the Leica DISTO ™ D5

The Leica DISTO ™ D5 features the latest in laser measuring technology from Leica the inventors of the laser measuring device.  The Leica DISTO ™ D8 utilises the new Leica Power range technology and has the additional Leica Long Range mode for measuring those far off targets.

Additional information

The developers at Leica Geosystems have listened to customers and developed the most advanced but easy to use hand held laser measuring tool on the market at a price that delivers a rapid return on investment.

In addition the features described above the Leica DISTO ™ D5 has some new measurement calculation features over an above those contained on the previous model the Leica DISTO ™ A5. The Indirect height measurement function enables simple height measurements safely from the ground; the new roof angle function is what our customers have been asking for and the new polygon room area calculation tool enables the user to calculate areas in rooms that are not square.

Despite all this functionality, the Leica DISTO ™ D5 is simple to operate, thanks to its new easy to use, menu driven colour user interface. It is also extremely easy to handle; it fits conveniently into any pocket. The rubberised case and robust design both internally and externally with IP 54 protection keeps the instrument safe when dropped or splashed with water and dust when on site.

I have just received the DISTO ™ D5 and its lovely. All is good. Thanx for your help and all the great service. I will pass your email and website on to my colleagues who will clearly want a D5 too. It is perfect for the work we do. So if a sound engineer contacts you, A Leica DISTO ™ D5 is what they want.

Gert Sanner - Sound Engineer

Thanks you Laser measure, I upgraded to the Leica DISTO ™ D5 from my DISTO Classic 5A ™. The digital viewfinder has saved me 30 minutes on my first job. Leica have a clear winner with this new D5 laser measure.

Excellent technical advice, great service and fast delivery. You have a good team working together.

R. Mallard – Surveyor (London) – October 2009

I purchased the Leica DISTO ™ D5 from the show.  When you demonstrated how easy the height measurement and the digital viewfinder I knew this would save me loads of time. Thank you for your support and technical guidance on the phone.  I have noticed that the batteries work for a long time, stillon the original supplied set. Many thanks.
