Leica Geosystems Introduces New Digital Measuring Tools for Builders

Leica Geosystems has unveiled a new series of digital measuring tools designed specifically for the construction market.

The Leica Builder Series is aimed at all types of contractors in the building sector who have up until now been reluctant to use professional measuring instruments.  The new rugged, lightweight instruments are easy to learn, even for beginners who have no experience with digital measuring tools.

“The new Builder products offer an opportunity for the building contractor to take advantage of increased productivity by reducing time and improving accuracy of all types of measuring tasks on the job,” said Carl Singleton, product marketing manager for Leica Geosystems.

The rugged Builder stands up to wind, weather and dirt, and is easy to transport in its convenient carrying case that holds most accessories in a single lightweight package.

Available in three different levels, the Builder Series products provide a scalable family of solutions, all sharing a common user interface and software routines, making it easy to move up from one model to the next without having to learn new operating procedures.

The basic Builder T provides extraordinary value and rapid return on investment by reducing many steps and manipulations in many common tasks, such as fast horizontal angle measurements or plumbing.  Built-in features include a laser plummet, endless drives on both sides for horizontal and vertical measurements, brilliant optics with 30x magnification, dual-axis compensation for reliable horizontal and vertical readings, unique leveling guidance for fast and convenient setup, a high-resolution LCD display and audible notice for 90 degree turns.

The Builder R incorporates all of the features of the Builder T, plus a bright red visible laser electronic distance-measuring device with ranges up to 250 meters.  Also added are built-in software functions for layout, as-built, tie distance and area measurements, and the capability to produce graphic sketches.

The top-of-the line Builder RM contains all the abilities of the Builder R, and additionally allows the user to call up construction data, save measurements and transfer data to a PC for editing with the added onboard memory feature.

“The introduction of the Builder Series digital measuring tools represents an important extension of our growing family of products specifically for the construction industry,” said Singleton.  The Leica Geosystems family includes the Rugby self-leveling lasers, Sprinter digital levels, Pipe lasers, and Digisystem buried service locators, as well as a wide range of machine control and guidance solutions.  All of them have been designed to be easy to use, robust, precise and reliable on the job.
