2. PREPARATION FOR USE
2.1. Initial checks
Before shipping, the instrument has been checked
from an electric as well as mechanical point of view.
All possible precautions have been taken so that it is
delivered undamaged.
However, we recommend generally checking the
instrument in order to detect possible damage suffered
during transport. In case anomalies are found,
immediately contact the forwarding agent.
We also recommend checking that the packaging
contains all components indicated in § 9. In case of
discrepancy, please contact the Dealer.
In case the instrument should be returned, please
follow the instructions given in § 10.1
2.2. Instrument power supply

the battery by following the instructions given in § 6
2.3. Storage
In order to guarantee precise measurement, after a
long storage time under extreme environmental
conditions, wait for the instrument to come back to
normal condition (see § 8.1). Given its simplicity, the
instrument does not need any periodic calibration.

3.3. General description of the instrument
DM40 has the following functions:
 Direct measurement of distances expressed in
m/in/ft and ft+in
 Measurement of area and volume
 Indirect 2- and 3-point distance measurement
(Pitagora)
 Distance measurement in continuous mode
 Sum/difference of measured distance values
 Setting of measuring reference
 Activation of the laser pointer for measurement
 Partial operations with use of internal memory (max
20 locations)
 Display backlight
The model is provided with a comfortable membrane
keyboard with 10 function keys and a class II laser
pointer for a precise definition of the application point.
The measurement of distance between two points
(with a measuring range from 5cm to 40m) is carried
out by reflection of the laser light from the surface hit
to the receiving sensor located in the upper part of the
instrument.
Measurement can be influenced by the brightness of
the environment in which it is performed and by the
type of surface hit by the laser pointer.

5. MEASURING CONDITIONS
Measuring range
The instrument's measuring range is 40m. At night,
under poor visibility conditions or if the surface to be
measured is in shadow, the measuring range can be
reduced. To prevent this, carry out measurements
during the day or use luminous plates when the object
to be measured has poor reflecting properties.
Object surface
The instrument can give errors when measurements
are carried out on colourless liquids (e.g. water),
transparent glass, polystyrene, very polished or halfpermeable surfaces because of the deviation of the
laser beam. Non-reflecting surfaces may cause delays
when measuring.
Maintenance
Do not immerse the instrument in water. To clean the
instrument, use a soft cloth moist with neutral
detergent
6. REPLACING INTERNAL BATTERIES
The instrument is supplied by 2x1.5V AAA LR03
“ flashes
alkaline batteries. When the symbol “
on the display, it is necessary to replace the batteries.
Proceed as follows:
1. Loosen the battery compartment cover fastening
screw and remove the cover (see Fig. 9)
2. Remove the batteries and insert the same number
of batteries of the same type, respecting the correct
polarity. Only use alkaline batteries
3. Restore the battery compartment cover and fasten
the relevant screw

(*) Measuring range and accuracy depend on the correct reflection of the
laser beam from the surface of the object to the instrument's sensor and on
the brightness of the environment in which tests are performed.
(**) Under favourable conditions (optimum object surface, room
temperature). Under unfavourable conditions (intense sunshine, poor
reflective properties of the object, high variations in temperature) the
resolution in measurements >10m may be higher by ±0.15mm/m
