Exit pointfinder
(viewscreen).
This is a great help for outdoor measuring. The integrated
pointfinder (viewscreen) shows the target on the display.
The device measures in the middle of the cross hair, even if
the laser dot is not visible.
Parallax errors occur when the pointfinder camera is used
on close targets, with the effect that the laser appears displaced in the crosshair. In this case rely on the real laser dot.

Pressing the measuring key for 2 sec in the function activates automatically Minimum or Maximum measurement.
We recommend to use the pythagoras only for indirect
horizontal measuring.
For height measuring (vertical) it is more precise to use
a function with the inclination measuring.

** applies for 10 to 100 % target reflectivity, high background
illumination, - 10 ºC to + 50 ºC
*** Tolerances apply from 0.05 m to 10 m with a confidence
level of 95%. The maximum tolerance may deteriorate to
0.1 mm/m between 10 m to 30 m, to 0.20 mm/m between
30 m to 100 m and to 0.30 mm/m for distances above 100 m
**** applies for 100 % target reflectivity, background illumination of approximately 30'000 lux
***** after user calibration. Additional angle related deviation of +/- 0.01° per degree up to +/-45° in each quadrant.
Applies at room temperature. For the whole operating
temperature range the maximum deviation increases by
+/-0.1°.
For accurate indirect results, the use of
a tripod is recommended. For accurate
tilt measurements a transverse tilt should be
avoided.
