Leica DISTO D510 Laser Measure
The Leica DISTO ™ D510 - The 200m range, waterproof DISTO ™ with Bluetooth connectivity, 4 x zoom digital Pointfinder and communication with iPad and iPhone devices.
Apart from the DISTO D810 Touch, the Leica DISTO ™ D510 is the only laser measurer in the world to feature both a digital Pointfinder and accuracy certified to ISO 16331-1 standards. When you consider that these features are combined with a waterproof, dust proof IP65 rated case and Bluetooth Smart 4.0 connectivity for iPad and iPhone, you can really start to see that the D510 is a truly remarkable instrument.

Leica's patented Pointfinder is an innovative tool that allows the user to take measurements that are out of visual range. Perhaps you can't see the laser dot (remember, the D510 has a 200m range!) or it's obscured thanks to particularly bright sunlight. By pairing a camera with a lifelike colour display the user can aim at the object they want to measure to, zoom in (the D510 has a 4 x digital zoom) and capture the exact point within the cross hairs. They can then take accurate measurements well out of the range of any ordinary laser measure.
The 360° tilt sensor built into this device combines with the Pointfinder to deliver super-accurate indirect measurements that, again, are simply not possible with lesser laser meters. Measurements are possible even when there is no reflective surface upon which to target the laser pointer. Perhaps you want to measure from the ground to the top of a tall tree or possibly even measure to a point on a reflective glazed panel? The D510 completes these tasks with ease.
Height profile measurement
Thanks to the useful height profile measurement function there is frequently no need to use much more complex and expensive survey instruments to measure building profiles. Providing there is a known datum or reference point the DISTO ™ D510 can calculate differences in height and distance quickly and simply.
The user interface of the DISTO ™ D510 is designed more like the screen of a modern smartphone than a conventional laser measure. A real leap for laser measuring technology and one only introduced with this device in 2012, this provides the user with an incredibly simple way of controlling such a large and complex range of functionality.
Bluetooth Smart technology
By using the Bluetooth Smart 4.0 connectivity coupled to Leica's DISTO ™ Sketch app (included), users can pair their device with the latest iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini (iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad Mini and iPad 3) to produce floor plans, drawings and site sketches in seconds. Measurements can even be taken and then overlaid onto photographs before being emailed back to the office using your mobile device's 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connection!

Not to be confused with some of the lower priced DISTO ™ models, calculation functions of the D510 include...
- Smart Horizontal Mode™
- Height tracking
- Indirect measurements (when no reflection is possible, e.g. the height of a tree or of a reflective glass facade)
- Room dimensions
- Stake out function
- Triangle function (calculate multi-cornered room areas)
- Area and volume calculations
- Inclination measurement (360° tilt sensor)
