Bosch Laser Rangefinders - Brilliant!!

Bosch have invested heavily in their IMT (Intelligent Measuring Tools) range. Part of this product category is the Laser Rangefinder Family.

Laser Rangefinders use a red laser beam projected from the tool and a receiver on the tool to determine distances. They are used in many applications and are capable of functions such as simple distance measurement, continuous measurement, area measurement, volume measurement, pythagoras measurements, trapezium functions, stake out functions and more.

Currently there are 4 Laser Rangefinders in the Bosch Professional portfolio. Here are details of what they are and what they do:

DLE40 - The baby of the family which has a range of 40 metres. It fits in any shirt pocket.

DLE70 - has a range of 70 metres and will measure up to 10 times faster.

GLM150 - a range of 150 metres, accurate to 1mm and has new functions such as roof slope measurement.

GLM250VF - a range of 250 metres and has an integrated telescopic viewfinder.

Hi Nento, You will probably be better to have the GLM80 which has the built in inclinometer function for angles.

Is your GLM150 suitable for making contour mapping, i.e. built in pytagoras function, built in angle measurement??
