A laser rangefinder, or more simply a laser meter, is an ideal and reliable tool for measuring distance, without the need for tape meters or distance measuring systems, the meter wheel. Laser meters are used at the highest industrial level using international standards to accurately determine the distance of an object or an open contact without a laser.
The principle of measurement in laser meters is based on measuring the transit time of the laser pulses, which measures the distance between the meter and the object. Depending on the speed of light and computational formulas, distances can be accurately determined using a laser rangefinder. This principle in surveying cameras and laser meters also allows the determination of very long distances in the range of kilometers in the event of a convergent relationship.
In addition, the laser meter can be used independently to calculate levels and volume. The laser rangefinder is an ideal tool for civil engineers and other large-scale operations with high measurement accuracy. Laser meters are often used in industrial sectors and especially in construction-related jobs such as carpentry, masonry, electricity, landscape and structural design, etc.
Today, the use of laser rangefinders is very common due to the ease of use and high accuracy and recording of results. The laser rangefinder can measure readings and store them in a memory and display the level, volume or height on your screen. A laser rangefinder is a tool for measuring distance in situations that no other instrument can do.

Guide to buying the best laser meter and rangefinder
When buying a meter, the first important criterion Select the measurement range It is.
This criterion means whether distances of less than one millimeter, such as the thickness of various coatings, or distances of several kilometers, for example, when measuring traffic routes, are user-friendly.
The next criterion Access rate when measuring Are.
– Full contact with the measuring parts causes the selection of wheel meters and types of metal meters
– Access to the device at the starting point and visual contact to the end point is mainly done by laser meter or ultrasound rangefinder equipment
When reducing the level of access such as visual contact with the start and end point requires the use of laser rangefinders with calculation or manual calculation function. It should be noted that most of the laser meters available in the market and Cianco store include addition, subtraction, multiplication, calculation of environment and area and volume, and even the relationship of Pythagoras and..
When choosing a rangefinder should be Specifications of laser meters And information about Measurement accuracy and requirements The environment also paid attention.
The resolution of display values on the screen and the accuracy of measurements in laser meters are not the same, and even this accuracy is reduced over long distances in a model of a particular laser meter. Laser meters are manufactured in accordance with international standards and in accordance with the rules of the committees.
