Built for transferring height, setting slope or leveling in both indoor and outdoor conditions, Hilti’s PRE 3 rotating laser features an operating range of up to 1,300 feet in diameter.

The Leica TS30 robotic total station offers accurate angle measurements of 0.5 inches, and distances can now be measured with Leica’s PinPoint EDM Technology, which boasts a precision of 0.6 mm + 1 ppm on prisms.

Leica says its Disto D5 is the world’s first laser distance meter with digital Pointfinder (4x zoom), 2.4-inch color display and plus-or-minus 45-degree tilt sensor. Measurements are said to be possible up to 330 feet without a target plate.

RL-VH4 Builder Laser Series uses GreenBeam technology.

Topcon increased the speed, storage and memory, and installed a 624MHz XScale processor in the rugged, waterproof package of the FC-2500 field controller. It is designed to speed data collection with 256MB RAM and 2GB flash storage memory. The FC-2500 also provides a 5.17 megapixel digital camera.
