1. Good Laser Point Distance Measure Meter
By Halali from UK on Feb 24, 2010
Purchasing a Laser Distance Meter
Laser Distance Meters are a popular tools to use. These device are gaining ground for other reasons than just for convenience. For accuracy, safety and time saving the Laser Distance Meter is becoming an essential tool.
Why do I need a Laser Distance Meter?
Here are the benefits of owning a Laser Point Distance Measure Meter.
Convenient and Reduce measuring time.
On site with only yourself, it is much easier and faster to hold and point a Laser Distance Meter at the target distance, or against a wall and hit a button, than to extend, read, and retract a tape measure. The result data is stored and can be retrieved later at your convenience. The longer the distance measurement, the more time saving you will gain. On average measurements in a residential environment, time savings of 50% to 75 % can be expected.
Pin-point measuring accuracy.
Most Laser Distance Meters are accurate to within 1/8 inch (0.5%+1). You just need to remember the position of the front of the laser measure meter and that is the start of the measurement. Lasers automatically adjust for the length of the unit, and there is no bow in the tape to throw off your results.
No target site.
If there is no target to aim at, such as on the corner of a brick house, use a bright fluorescence post-it note can be attached for a temporary target, or the triangulation method can be used. (see #7)
One-handed, single person operation.
With a Laser Distance Meter, it can easily be operated with one hand. For a single person, the device can be attached to a clipboard so to measure and write at the same time thus eliminating the steps to set down your notebook, take the measurement, remember it, pick up the notebook and write down the measurement. (I often have to re-measure, especially if someone asks a question). For second measure, it is more accurate because less motion is involved to do a re-measured. If someone interrupts, the measurement is still on the laser device for you to view.
Safety and hard to access places
A Laser Point Distance Measure Meter allows you to measure areas where you may not be able to access or access in a safe manner. Instead of fumbling with extending a tape measure, you simply aim the laser dot at the target. This is very helpful and safety issue in situations where the structural integrity of a building may be in question, on hazardous or wet surfaces, and in areas where there are unfriendly pets.
Taking a measurement of a cathedral or high ceiling can be difficult, even with a very stiff tape measure. Taking a measurement or spotting an anchor location for a chandelier and having the tape bend and fall over can also get expensive. Simply place a laser distance meter on the floor, aim the red dot at the ceiling, and press the button. Taking a measurement across a pond, creek, canal or ditch is much easier with the laser device. Need to know how high some hot electrical wires are?
Tape measures drag along the ground will collect unwelcome moisture, dirty, rust, or laden with potentially harmful bacteria. The Laser Distance Meter reduces the contact of foreign elements and protects both the user and the device.
Taking triangulate (indirect) measurements.
For situation where you can not be at one end of the location, use the triangulate method of measurement. Simply, you can stand at the sidewalk, aim at the corner of the house and determine the distance between you and the corner. Take the second measurement the distance between you and the other side of the corner. Then, calculate the third side of the triangle and you have the distance between the two corners. While this is not as accurate as measuring directly from one end of the corner to the other, when properly utilized it provides a very good estimate, and can also be used to determine heights of buildings.
How Square and Parallel
Most laser distance meters will perform a continuous measurements, (the distance displayed changes as you move the dot) and display the maximum and minimum distance measured while in this mode. This allows the user to stand in one corner of a room, scan the dot diagonally across the opposite corner and observe the largest measurement. Comparing the two diagonal measurements in a room determines how square that room is. Comparing the minimum distances obtained when scanning two parallel walls at several points will give the user a measure of how parallel the two walls are.
Determine square footage and volume.
Most Laser Distance Meters include automatic calculation of square footage and volume. The user simply inputs the width, length, and height if required, and the device calculates and displays the square or cubic footage, as requested. Also, include a room calculation feature that calculates linear feet of wall and square footage of the walls in a room.
Features that can make your project go easier and faster.
Foot/Meter button that allows you to transcribe measure in foot or meter. Liquid crystal screen allows you to read the data even in the dark environment. The memory function allows you to measure, store and calculate 3 different measures. Addition/Subtraction function allows you to add or subtract 2 measures.
There are many more reasons to have a laser distance meter even for a weekend warrior. The Dekcell Ultrasonic Laser Distance Measure Metertop end model gives added feature such Addition/Subtraction function allows you to add or subtract 2 measures. Or whether you choose the basic homeowner version, a laser measuring device will make the task of measuring easier and more enjoyable. Brilliantstore.com offers the lowest price online.
What laser measuring device is right for me?
Brilliantstore.com offers two models of the Laser measuring devices. Choosing a laser distance measuring device is much like choosing any essential tool. You want accuracy and reliability. First you need to determine how and how often you intend to use it. Inside? Outside? For distances greater than 150 ft? If the usage is expected to be more infrequent and the type of measurements will likely be less than 60 feet, and mostly indoors, the basic may be the right choice. For outside measurements in bright sunlight, the Liquid crystal is very helpful and Dekcell Ultrasonic Laser Distance Meter may be your choice. Again, if you just want to simply use the device without reading a whole, then these two devices will service that purpose.
What specifications should I look for?
Range: Distance is stated by the manufacture in feet or meters. It is usually the maximum distance the unit will measure under ideal conditions to a reflective target. Ranges for devices currently on the market vary from 20 feet to100 feet to 600 feet. Manufacturers do not normally specify the range without a reflective target plate, which varies according to the conditions. Practical range without a target plate is 50 feet on some older or less expensive models
Accuracy: Accuracy is the degree of conformity of a measured or calculated value to its actual or specified value, or the maximum amount of deviation of the measured value from the actual physical length of the item being measured. Most true laser devices are accurate within +/- 0.5%
Size: Devices on the market comes in various sizes. Need to feel how the device is in your hand.
