Measuring errors can occur when measuring toward colourless liquids (e.g.
water) or dust free glass, Styrofoam or similar semi-permeable surfaces.
* To receive the three year warranty, the product must be registered on our website
www.disto.com within eight weeks of the purchase date. If the product is not
registered, a two year warranty applies.
Aiming at high gloss surfaces may deflect the laser beam and lead to
measurement errors.
Against non-reflective and dark surfaces the measuring time may increase.
Care
Do not immerse the instrument in water. Wipe off dirt with a damp, soft
cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents or solutions. Handle the
instrument as you would a telescope or camera.
