PD-I Bluetooth-enabled laser measuring tools can improve speed, accuracy and reliability

After you're used to the speed and precision of laser distance measurers, it is impossible to go back to tapes, trundle wheels and calculators. One weak link has stuck around though: measurements from your sketches still have to be manually copied into a usable drawing.

Not any more! This slow, error-prone step can be cut out by using a Bluetooth-enabled laser.

Simple, durable, and precise

The point-and-press simplicity, IP54 durability, and laser precision are the same as always, but with the PD-I you can digitize the entire process from measuring to documentation. Other time-savers – like painter’s area calculation and a stake-out function – make the PD-I a versatile way to speed up interior fit-out prep work.

How does a Bluetooth laser meter work?

The future of increasing productivity on jobsites lies in digitization. Smart laser measuring tools free up craftsmen’s time for more valuable work, no matter how big or small the job.

The first step is to use a floor plan app to rapidly create an approximate survey. This is as simple as taking photos of every corner, door and window in sequence using the app. The resulting drawing uses estimated dimensions – just about accurate enough for furniture layouts – but they need to be fine-tuned for professional use.

This is where the PD-I comes in. By wirelessly linking the laser to the app via Bluetooth, the drawing will update itself in real-time using measurements from the laser. 

For you, the benefits are simple: you walk away from the survey site with a finished drawing, not just notes or a rough sketch.
